Alexander the private citizen is an undecided voter. The candidate pool leaves much to be desired.
TPOL the blogger is a single issue voter. He, as a New York transplant, believes that in comprehensive subway reform. For that reason, and that reason alone, TPOL is supporting Hillary in her time of distress. If you haven’t seen the clip, presidential hopeful Hillary Clinton, had trouble swiping her MetroCard in the Bronx.
Political pundits have pounced on Hillary’s inability to maneuver the metro as a sign that she is disconnected from the common people. This is only half-true. The reality is that the MetroCard is a flimsy piece of junk that occasionally doesn’t swipe properly. It is just one of many issues that face New York’s transit system. Hillary’s campaign advisers should have anticipated that this could happen. A quick practice session would have served her well. Obviously, Hillary doesn’t ride the subway and this stunt backfired but it’s not as big a deal as is being made by the media. The real issue, the archaic metro system, should be the story.
