On Sunday, Hillary Clinton used a carefully crafted video advertisement to announce her bid for the presidency.
In claiming to get closer to the people, the Clinton campaign used a vehicle that totally insulated her from the public — a sterile television ad. In an effort to “be real,” Clinton was nothing more than a well-scripted actor in a professionally crafted commercial.
By contrast, Marco Rubio took the stage in Miami’s Freedom Tower — a real person in real life.
There was no crew to handle body language and lighting.
Never miss a local story.
There were no retakes. More than 3,000 people came to hear his unedited words. They cheered as he spoke of his vision.
With Rubio, it was like attending a football game, while with Clinton, it was like seeing an ad to buy a ticket to the game.
