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.
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.
