She has a snowball's chance in hell of nabbing the nomination, but you gotta love her silver tongue.

Why Marianne Williamson thinks she can defeat Trump

#FactsMatter...your feelings not so much.

I loved her. Granted, I'd have liked if some of the other more serious contenders got to speak more, but I was never bored when she spoke. She was coherent 50% of the time, and an utter sunrise-acid-trip-in-Sedona-1971 the other 50%.

I don’t know, maybe I’m a Debbie Downer but after the last presidential election cycle, meme candidates give me hives.

If she makes it to the next debate (which she won’t), I hope she wears a Stevie Nicks style cape and starts dancing around the stage with incense, cleansing everyone’s aura.

After the last election, meme candidates are not welcome.

She has more followers on social media than some of the politicians. I think she's incredibly intelligent and truthful. This country isn't ready for what she has to say, although I feel it is the honest truth. With all the others, it's going to be more of the same. I like hearing what she has to say. Even though she has no chance of scoring the nom, I am very glad her voice is out there.

She rubs me the wrong way.  I live in LA and I know so many struggling actors and others that are going thru a need of enlightenment in their lives ; that have spent so much money throughout the years on her workshops.   Her name for me is such a business.  I attended one night.  She used to talk weekly at a old movie theater in Hollywood.  Such spiritual desperation in the room.   And such a willingness from people to buy books, lectures,  and spiritual retreat packages.  I am sure many got good out of it.  It just never sat right with me.

Dame thanks for sharing that. I could certainly see that happening. I know she’s big with the entertainment industry. Personally I’ve found her books and lectures helpful but I’ve never shelled out any money for her insights. What I’ve actually been surprised by in listening to her campaign messages is how intelligent she is. I always pictured her as a flighty hippie but she is whip smart and on top of issues. This really surprised me. She is still clearly new agey saying “girlfriend” during a debate but I’m glad her voice is out there.

How odd that two of the potential 2020 candidates for president both appear in the current licensed version of Godspell from almost ten years ago.

Worth noting: the skills she needs most to run a country are managerial; yet she's been fired twice from such positions, including (in effect) being forced to step down from an organization she founded. She resigned from the church in Detroit before they removed her. These are not resume building items if you want to run a cabinet, work with Congress, or build coalitions. She seems to believe she can coast on ideological purity alone. In truth, running the country takes extraordinary executive skill. When it's absent (see current occupant), we get chaos, ego, personality. Williamson is hardly Trumpian. Yet she has never demonstrated the ability to supervise or play a longer game. She hates being reductively minimized as a celebrity guru; yet that's the profile that sustains her.
