I've never seen offering a job to a candidate to open up an election for one of your friends called 'a form of communication' before. This must be what is referred to since he's not convincing anyone by any other means that I can see. No matter what he says or does his approval has kept sliding. And his policies are getting more and more unpopular with the voters. But he is a master at throwing around government resources and favors the Chicago way and getting doubters to vote with him in the Congress and the Senate. Truly, we have a brave new world in Washington and in the MSM.
