It is acceptable to bring someone to tears if it explains to them in an emotional way why a product, a service, or a candidate is the right person, is the right thing to do.
There are people still in the Republican Party that I believe practice the communication of anger, of disappointment, of regret, of pain, of sorrow, of suffering. That's not what the American people want to hear.
So often corporate America, business America, are the worst communicators, because all they understand are facts, and they cannot tell a story. They know how to explain their quarterly results, but they don't know how to explain what they mean.
A compelling story, even if factually inaccurate, can be more emotionally compelling than a dry recitation of the truth.
We as Americans and as humans have very selective hearing and very selective memory. We only hear what we want to hear and disregard the rest.
