Open Thread - What are the 5 most important attributes for a candidate to win an election in the United States today (local, state and federal)

Here are a few to get started

  • Well Spoken
  • Good looking
  • Friendly
  • Rich
  • Passionate about an issue
  • Believes exactly as you do
  • Even though you may disagree, the candidate sticks to his guns and ideals

I don't know if good looking is a necessity, considering that many successful politicians aren't good looking, although the Elephant Man would probably have trouble winning an election. I would add to the list: charismatic, consistent, appears to be honest, appears to be morally upright and decent.

Unfortunately, I think "rich" trumps every other one.
