A follow up to my thoughts on Hillary and Emotional Intelligence

So the Democratic Presidential race seems to be closing between Obama and Clinton. A new poll puts Obama in the lead.

The more visible reason for polling like this is the way in which a candidate lands on “issues.” Many view Hillary’s views on the war as a major sticking point. However, I’m a firm believer that the emotional intelligence of a candidate has far more to do with electability than we think. As I mentioned in my post on Hillary and E.I., this could be the downfall in her campaign. It’s also the downfall for many leaders who are not able to connect with people when criticism is flying.

It will be interesting to see what Iowans do in a couple of months.
