  •  Bush got away with it because he was little known (0+ / 0-)

    At the time, most of the Dems had dismissed him as being little more than an empty suit. It wasn't until he was in office that we got to know the real Shrub.

    In this day of Internet communications, I don't think we're going to be fooled the exact same way again. There are enough eyes out there pumping data into the Internet -- & other eyes sifting thru it -- that no candidate for the Presidency will fail to be fully profiled.

    Not to say there won't be other ways to repackage a scumbag & make her/him appear to be a reasonable, moderate politician. But it'll take a while for a successful new way to be discovered or invented.
