I just received a comment about Hillary and Bill Clinton and Barack Obama. This was from a life long Democrat, and though I don’t agree with everything that was said, I respect the thought that went into it and I believe it is representative of the opinion of many voters. The comment was made by user mcswain, today, February 29, 2008. Here is the comment as submitted:
on Hillary, if I may……
I have been a lifelong Democrat. I have not missed an election in the last 40 years, literally.
This Obama fellow is what is needed now, it is his time; our time. I am much older than he.
It matters not whether he can deliver, no one can really now. But he brings Hope that may be he/we can. That is what is required now, Hope and hard work. Obama is that, that and a young man’s family’s energy. That and mixed race. That and International. That and Black in America.
Hillary also is about Hope. Resolve too. However, she and Bill had their shot. Took it, hit the mark, dead on. President and Mrs. Clinton. Twice. Undeniable. 8 years. Most everyone had a some good years. Enough.
Another Hillary however……. now it has become about her; them, Bill and Hillary. About obstinance, revenge, vindication, arrogance, pay-back, resolve and a bit of Hope. About Bill involving himself in scuffles and disturbances in the crowds. About Hillary not congratulating or even acknowledging Obama’s last, whatever is the number, of victories in a row. Ridiculous. Bill & Hillary’s time was together in the past. Help them off the stage before one of them falls off and gets hurt again.
OK, that’s it.
