Say what?

Fred Barnes of the Weekly Standard on how voters decide on a president:

The main rap I've heard on Cheney is that he lacks the charisma to get elected. This is nonsense. So what if he can be characterized as Bush without the pizzazz? Cheney has what's far more important--gravitas. He's a man who's taken seriously as a national leader by everyone here and abroad. Voters aren't stupid. They know that gravitas trumps charisma in choosing a president in a foreign policy era.

That's right. That's why President Kerry, the gravitas candidate, soundly defeated one-termer George W. Bush.
