Vivek himself basically says he's the right's Obama, the brown skinned geekoid outsider.
Lack of warmth, yeah maybe. But that doesn't really matter that much to me.
The fact that Vivek essentially trashed the heart and soul of the current GOP kingmaker clique defuses any trust issue, to me.
I would trust him. He's not triangulating shit in order to avoid damage or mincing his words or trying to not offend anyone - he's going for the throat again, and again, and again. That's very very Trumplike.
As I see it he's in politics for one mission, to be the heir apparent to Trump, and not to be anyone's understudy. If this run doesn't work he will probably slide back into corporate life, probably at that point as a high profile donor.
I don't think he would be able to stand up to the deep state.
I think he's showing real guts and courage and is staying consistent where VERY few politicians do. Also questionable how well DJT has stood up to the deep state. Look what's happening to him.
I consider VR like a Trump who is 35 years younger and 30-50 IQ more who is also a FAR more disciplined speaker than Trump.
