I can see that. Hillary always struck me as a little too aloof and frigid, which means cold. By contrast, when I interviewed President Obama in 2011, I immediately understood why they won the election so handily. They entered the room, shook my hand, greeted me by name (advance people with cheat sheets don't get enough credit. That little trick works, and it's worth its weight in gold), and made me feel as though I'd known them for years.

Obama is a big individual, and when you add that to the fact that they were President, they could be an imposing figure. They had a very winning way about themselves. They knew how to connect. I was only supposed to have ten minutes with them, but they stayed and spoke with me for almost half an hour. That is part of their plan, and I admit it earned them high marks from me.

Bill Clinton could turn on the charm like that, too, so say my colleagues who have met them. Their spouse, not so much. That, more than anything else, sunk them against Trump, a professional television personality who completely understands their medium.
