Hillary:“I’m just getting warmed up.”

“The secret of success in life is sincerity,”

Groucho once famously observed. “If you can fake that, you’ve got it made.” This truth about the human condition applies with particular force to politics. Mrs Clinton tries hard to fake sincerity – so hard it is painful to watch. Sometimes, in fact, I suspect that she really is sincere and only looks as though she is faking. Barack Obama, on the other hand, may actually be sincere – and if he is not, he fakes it so well it makes no difference
