RONAN FARROW: They’re nimble politicians. Also I think that they represent a style of honesty that the public craves right now. And that’s reflected in the numbers. I think people are tired of the old school politicking, and when a politician comes out and says, “Actually, I changed my mind, I’ve evolved on the issue,” that’s something people are willing to embrace.
You know, Clinton has shown, as you said, on a variety of social issues that matter to young voters and for whom, you know, other politicians that have remained stuck in the past have become a source of alienation. He’s also done it on a variety of other issues including healthcare. I mean, let’s not forget that it was a watershed moment when Bill Clinton came out and gave his seminal remarks on healthcare at the convention. Those are remarks that he struck through the written remarks on and ad-libbed a lot of. That shows the style of communication he has, and one of the reasons why these stops are so significant. He represents something that people still connect with in a very primal way.
