I met John back in the 90’s and knew right away that he was a nice guy. But can a guy be too nice to be president? Fox News asks that for us tonight.
Some have wondered if the description of Thune as charming, congenial, polite and statesmanlike might make him too nice for presidential politics.
Larry Sabato, head of the Center for Politics at the University of Virginia, says Thune is an attractive candidate, but would have an uphill battle in a bid for president.
“Thune cuts a strong media image. He comes across well on TV, and that matters in modern politics,” Sabato said. “He’s unknown, from the Midwest, he would have to spend almost full time campaigning and raising money.”
Personally, I think this part of the article says it best. To me, John truly is a down home kinda guy.
“You look where I come from, and where I spend my time, I may work in Washington but I’m certainly not a creature of Washington,” he said.
