I get it, Hillary

The more I watch Hillary speak and debate, the more I feel kind of sympathetic towards her.  Whatever else you can say about her, Hillary is a smart woman.  But she's not a great speaker or particularly charismatic, like her husband or Obama (or HIS wife). She's not the kind of person you just automatically like. I think that if a more charismatic person were running with her same exact background, they would be killing Trump.

I get it, Hillary. I'm not charismatic either.  And while I'm not running for public office, being a doctor (at least in some fields) does require some amount of charisma.  It's hard to know that no matter how hard I try, I just can't obtain the same level of likability that some of my colleagues get to without even trying.

So I paste that same smile on my face that Hillary has through the debates and try to provide good care, and hope that it's enough to get patients to like me.


  1. I just finished Brain Damage and absolutely loved it! This is the first novel I have read in years as I am usually a nonfiction/auto biography/biography type of girl. I started reading Baby City within minutes of finishing Brain Damage. Definitely keep writing!
