ABLOW: Here's the thing and I'm not being sexist, it's tougher for a woman to work the crowd. It's a little tougher because rolling up your sleeves, jogging, it doesn't work as well for a female. Sarah Palin probably came as close to that kind of chemistry as we've seen because she was tough but she was pretty and she was funny, she was self-effacing. Not so with Hillary Clinton, who takes herself very seriously indeed, even when she pokes fun at herself, you get a sense that it's contrived, that she's designing to do so.
