An interesting article about Deathsantis and his "personality"...

Governor Ron DeSantis has a growing store of admirers.... They have heard glowing things...This has made DeSantis the GOP’s hottest molecule. He is full MAGA without the high drama.
People who know him better and have watched him longer are skeptical of his ability to take on the former president....He can be awkward and plodding. And Trump tends to eviscerate guys like that....“He was standoffish in general,” the Virginia Republican Barbara Comstock, a former House colleague of DeSantis’s, told me. “A strange no-eye-contact oddball,” Rick Wilson, a Republican media consultant, wrote...“I think he is going to run into some challenges,” Carlos Curbelo, a former Republican congressman from Florida who served with DeSantis in the House, told me. “It’s that question... ‘Would you want to have a beer with him?’’’ ... Will he grow on voters like a catchy song, or like mold? DeSantis “has this robotic quality that he has to shed...” “On a debate stage, all of Trump’s strengths go straight to DeSantis’s weaknesses,” Stipanovich told me. Trump has energy and presence; DeSantis “is dour and doesn’t improvise particularly well.”
