    Default presidential question

    After the debates comments were made, of "looking presidential" or "being presidential" What actually do these statements mean?

    Interesting question. I have wondered the same thing. I would guess that you will get a lot of very different answers to this question. TIC......... It seems like some women think "looking presidential" means "tall, dark and handsome". Of course "handsome" means different things to different people.

    I take it as the person bieng not brass, or argumentative to a point of bieng disrespectfull to the oposition. Its kinda like what Joe Biden did at the VP debate. Laughed, interupted and was just plain rude. Not presidential at all.

    It means that the voting public cast their vote based on "looks" more than "substance".

    it all started with our GREAT First President, and this painting of him. He set the bar for the rest to follow. Imagin if he had been huddeling in the bottom of the boat, life vest on? I wonder how some that followed would look, crossing an ice filled river in the dark in a small over loaded boat??? Makes ya wonder!

    To me a President should comport himself with dignity and grace (minus any animus), be sartorially resplendent and display impeccable tonsorial accumen.

    It's in the details.................

    Again, your sanctimonious assumptions do not serve you well.

    Glad to see you took something away from that other thread! (Well said)
