Diary of a political madman: My not-so-hot list
Excerpted from this post at Diary of a political madman
HOT: No one. In my mind, I have to be excited about having you as president to rank you as hot.
WARM: Edwards: I feel he's more flash than substance, but others who have spent more time with him tell me there's a good heart buried somewhere underneath that fake smile; Clark: I feel like his real opportunity was four years ago, not now, but I feel that someone with military experience could be the one who engenders public trust from both sides on defense issues; Biden: ...He's got a ton of experience and he's loaded with ideas.
TEMPERATURE UNTESTED (these are in no particular order): Dodd, Bayh, Obama
ICE COLD: Kerry and Gore: I lump these two together because they fit the same criteria: well funded candidates who couldn't beat the least popular president of my lifetime. ... Vilsack: I think he looks and acts presidential; Richardson: Seems entirely unwilling to look the part; Clinton: In an election year where you couldn't throw a briefcase full of cash without hitting a presidential candidate raising money for another candidate, Clinton was conspicuously absent and unwilling to help out.
