Quote Of The Day: What Political Future? Edition

"Americans know who he is, and have pretty much decided they don't like him."
-- Peter Brown, Quinnipiac University Polling Institute

The recipient of that assessment is none other than John Kerry -- determined to be the least likeable of 20 prominent US politicians. That Kerry will almost certainly not be humbled by the assessment will no doubt drive him even lower.

If he is to have a national political career, Kerry has the formidable task of convincing people they're wrong, that he really is likeable. He's proved how hard that is, since the normal approach, humor, turns to scandal in his unlikeable hands.

Rudy Giuliani's no doubt feeling good, as the most likeable in the Quinnipiac poll. He's followed by Barack Obama (who's likely to fall sharply as soon as people get to know him better) and John McCain, who proves that likeability and arrogance can indeed go together.

Full results are here.
