What makes a pundit successful is the clarity of his views, his eloquence and persuasive power. The magic is not necessarily in his ability to know the right answer, but in the chemistry between his answers and the thinking of his audience. He makes himself sound really smart to enough people.Of course, that might only apply to politics in Israel. Maybe pundits in the US are better qualified?
But this sounds like the classic description of the demagogue.
Or, maybe not.
There's still plenty of time till the next election though--which blogger would you vote for?
