I like Obama. I like Clinton. I even like McCain. I’m happy.
McCain will fight – and I don’t like war – but he will fight with practicality. He’s a real soldier, not a G.I. Joe doll like bush. Something will have to improve.
I don’t think he’s as bought and sold to the current Republican party as it is made out. He pays his dues. Try being a part of a group like that some time – at a top level – and you’ll see how much you have to bow down and pay your dues. I think he’s a pragmatist.
I think the venom against Clinton is strong. I remember going to an old person’s house and seeing some Bill Clinton expose book of innuendo they were reading. They also ranted once or twice about Clinton (the male, philandering one). I imagine some of that carries forward. I don’t know, this was anecdotal.
I would absolutely love it if Obama could go the distance. We all want him to.
The battle is going to come down to “experience” if he’s running. Which is ridiculous, because usually the president has a cabinet. The cabinet is made up of other people who also have experience. It’s not like the president makes every decision – he/she puts together a good team, like a CEO or any other kind of boss.
