I have formed an opinion on Hillary by what she has achieved in her life (which if people would open their eyes is very commendable), and where she stands on the issues. Certain people are more "likeable" than others. Barack Obama is more likeable than Hillary. She does not have a "warm" personality. I've tried to analyze her personality using Myers-Briggs criteria, but it's difficult because she has a more guarded public persona. Her private life is less evident and available to people like me to analyze. Some put her as an INTJ. I can agree to part of that, but it's difficult.
The fact that she has been in the public spotlight for so long where every single thing she says or does is analyzed under a microscope has had some effect on her public persona. The media sensationalizes anything that might be perceived as controversial. However, I have no doubt that she is as sincere in her desire to make the world a better place as a public servant rather than "seeking the limelight". Her role as Secretary of State is testament to that fact. In her visiting 112 countries to build bridges she went everywhere to meet ordinary people most often away from the cameras. I read foreign newspaper articles about her visits (mostly all positive). Yes she can "drink tea" with foreign dignitaries, but she also enjoys getting out and meeting people one-on-one.
As Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton enjoyed an approval rating of 66 percent. Then when she decided to run for president her approval ratings went down. It was because the Republicans started attacking her on everything starting with Benghazi and now the e-mails. They started resurrecting the Bill Clinton presidency making her "accountable" for Bill's midnight romps with Monika.
Nothing has been off limits. The mainstream media loves it. It's good for ratings. So what did she do between garnering a 66 percent positive rating right before she stepped down as Secretary of State to now where she has negative ratings. Nothing. It is all Republican "Hillary Haters" feeding the mainstream media. The Bernie supporters are glomming onto those negative narratives to make their candidate "better" in their eyes. It is now largely Bernie and Bernie's supporters who are driving down Hillary's negative ratings. I read where 25 percent of them would never vote for Hillary. She is hated so much now by the hard core Bernie supporters...probably as much as the Republican operatives who fear her. It's all emotional. I suppose that applies to many of the members on this website.
I have said it before, but I'll say it again. Hillary Clinton is one of the more accomplished and most qualified persons to seek the office of the President of the United States. I don't care about likability...I care about what she has achieved in life and what she still wants to achieve. It's commendable. She will make an outstanding president.
