"Hillary was pedestrian, as always"

Speaking of Andrew Sullivan, in commenting on the Democratic Convention's opening night, he wrote that, "Hillary was pedestrian, as always."

If by pedestrian, he means "undistinguished; ordinary," I don't see it. Her prose can certainly be undistinguished and ordinary, but as a personality she inspires a range of impassioned emotion by her detractors and supporters alike.

On the other hand, some define pedestrian as "lacking wit or imagination." This I can see

Note: I did not watch Hillary's speech last night, so I can only comment on the "as always" sense of her alleged pedestrianism.
