Keeping the muzzle pointed in a safe direction since 2008
In my first post on what makes a character likable, I laid out Eric Edson’s criteria from The Story Solution:
Just Plain Nice
Loved By Friends And Family
To be likable, a character only needs a majority – 5 out of 9 traits.
I can see where Jeb has one, or two. Hillary I doubt has one; including being loved by friends and family. She's a dangerous snake, and most people with good sense know this.
Hmm I should be very likable, I suspect I have the major failing of being the 'jerk with a heart of gold' mixed with -redacted-. Too bad I don't put much on reincarnation, after a few billion tries I might get it right.
For both Jeb! and Shrillary, I prefer the term "nacho much"...
