Most liberals understand and appreciate his intelligence.

And I think a lot of liberals believe him to be a good person, just with shit political views. Not most, but many.
A charlatan with no political compass whatsoever, which is odd given that I suspect from what I know....that he does possess intellect and a good moral compass. Honestly, I just think he thinks he SHOULD be President--so if selling out and pandering are the price for getting elected--so be it.
