Some people have charisma. They are popular for their looks, charm or their energy of person. Sarah Palin crashed into American politics when John McCain chose her for his Vice President candidate in 2008. I don't much care about Ms Palin, but, it would be true to say, I found her very attractive.
But, no matter how many tried, no one really captured her sexiness. They captured her vapid and frustrating intellect, but not really the thing that I liked.
