Response to Pachamama (Reply #19)

34. I hate to say it, but

he's too short.

That's a sad fact. It has nothing to do with his ability, but in today's media-drive, television-driven political word, superficiality matters. Look how much time people spent talking about Ryan's physique -- or Michelle's arms. Unless the public changes -- don't hold your breath -- Raul would suffer the same fate as Dennis Kucinich. The corporate media would savage him.

The Citizens United ads against him this time were vile and disgusting.

I've met Raul twice and he is a sweet, charming guy, but that won't help when the Koch Brother attack dogs go after him.
