And unlike other nominees over the years, nobody is parve, neutral about these two. Either you love or hate one or the other or both...
Hillary has been in the news for decades, sort of overcooked, and I've liked her less and yes. Overcooked is the word, like how disgusting vegetables, especially green vegetables get when they are stewed forever. I don't like her policies and I don't like her as a person. I would have respected her more if she had thrown out her philandering Bill decades ago. But apparently their marriage is one of those unconventional ones, which somehow lasts. I don't trust her politically at all. She knows how to pick good speechwriters and deliver powerful speeches. Keep her on the stage performing, but don't take her seriously. She'll say anything for a vote and a headline.
Trump is also a good performer. Nobody is quite sure what his policies would be if elected. His personal life isn't any more classically "perfect" than Hillary's, but he has been more open about it. Ex-wives are pretty hard to hide, as are premarital photos of the present wife. He also has a knack to pick good staff, which is how he has made so much money on his mega building projects.
So, yes, they do have a lot in common and are similar ages.
But still, as an Israeli, I have no doubt that Hillary will be bad for Israel. And I have a feeling that Trump will try to stay clear besides the usual pally visits to meet the players here.
The next few months should be pretty entertaining. Hold onto your hats....
