Get Ready For Jack Conway 2.0
I hear that Jack Conway is getting some training on how to become a better candidate. Presumably this includes public speaking and something along the Dale Carnegie course of How to Make Friends and Influence People.
Conway is not much of a speaker. He's tried different personas. There was pugilistic Jack Conway at Fancy Farm, boasting that he's "one tough son of a b***h." Then there was sensitive Jack Conway, weeping about his decision not to appeal the gay marriage case.
His hair, along the way, has gone through more iterations of highlights than the Breck Girl.
So what will a new and improved Conway look and sound like? Will the consultants have settled upon one hair color?
Is it possible to teach charisma? I am doubtful.
Conway said on Derby Day that he wanted to run against Matt Bevin. Conway got his wish, and may soon learn the lesson of be careful what you wish for.
Regardless of how one feels about Bevin, he is a very talented speaker. He doesn't need to take charisma classes. Stylistically, the comparison will not be flattering to Conway.
