If Dennis Kucinich was 6’4″, 220 with a Bow-flex body would he be the Democratic front-runner (like Mitt is for the Republicans)?
It isn’t always all about the packaging in US politics, but there are lots of stats out there that indicated that, in the workforce at least, brawn beats brains most of the time. Then, of course, there is the Hollywood iconic typecast: the closer you get to looking like JFK or Ronnie, the better.
But, hey, the diminutive Kucinich may not have the stature but he has everything else a Democrat might want in a leader, like principles and policies.
Question #2: if a guy is like 5’5″ and he runs to be the American president, must he have a Napoleonic Complex?
