HILLARY....Hillary is getting a pretty tepid response to her speech last night. There was nothing really wrong with it, the general reaction goes, but it was hardly a tub thumper. Why does everyone think she's such a crowd pleaser?

For what it's worth, my take on Hillary is that she's really quite good one-on-one. When she's on Larry King or Meet the Press or whatnot, I think she comes across pretty well: very human, more responsive than a lot of politicians, knowledgable, not condescending, and basically likeable if you don't already loathe her. Plus, of course, she's Hillary!!!

But yeah, as a public speaker she's fairly average. And of course it didn't help last night that her speech came right before her husband's, who is probably the best political speaker in the entire country. Tough break, that.
