How many charisma stars do you give Hau Long-bin?
Apparently she stood next to him for five minutes or longer on stage not showing any sign of recognizing him. After leaving the stage, a reporter asked her who she prefered (?), Ma Ying-jeou or Mayor Hau. She replied, "Who is Mayor Hau?"before being rescued by one of her entourage. Here’s a link. I can’t find a photo, but I wish I could. I did see Hau onstage. He looked kind of Charlie Brownish, ambling from side to side with a blank grin on his face.
I suspect he was a test candidate run by the KMT. They knew they would win Taipei, so what better way to test your baseline support than to run a candidate with absolutely no charisma. It also gives them good information of how much of Ma’s support was(is) due to his charisma.
