You've got to give Peter Schiff credit for trying to change the system, though, the Connecticut Senate race has changed rather dramatically since Chris Dodd said he wouldn't seek reelection. Peter does have some characteristics that make for a good politician, the most important of which is "a thick skin", however, there are an equal number of impediments.
One of the biggest factors that will probably hamper his chances is a clearly anti-American investment stance that many voters won't stick around long enough to hear explained. At just over the three minute mark someone asks how much money Peter has invested in America. The answer? Very little. It's a question he's likely to hear again and again.
