I have a feeling that is unusual and I would like to share it with you. Simply put: I like Barack Obama, I just don’t think I would vote for him. He has an incredible charisma and Kennedy-like likability (like, like, like). Perhaps that would qualify him as an outstanding Secretary of State or as an Ambassador. I just don’t see clearly what he stands for other than a charming leader of a liberal front that may (or may not) be a salve for a nation mired in hardline thinking that has, well, been hard to live with. P.S. – Are we ready for a black President? I see no reason why not. I, however, am not the majority it seems. As we have seen in past elections of late, our country leans to the Right and may not accept this leap. I believe that if Obama comes out with a powerful agenda in the coming year that appeals to the war-weary nation as well as pacifies the super-duper Right, he may have a shot at charming his way into Casa Blanca.
Tough Mama – Hillary Clinton has such a juicy last name and an infinite warchest for waging the battle of the almighty diggity-dollar. She seems a bit more clear on her stand when it comes to important issues. She will be on the side of opportunity. She got away with pulling a fast one on New York as she moved here and became Senator all too quickly. Is it possible to represent a constituency that you’ve only just become a part of? Well, she’s done an okay job in the cushy halls of Capitol Hill. However, are the country and the armed forces ready for a female Commander-In-Chief? If so, is she tough enough? I don’t see it in her. However I am in the minority. She is the front runner. We still have a year to go and a lot can happen. Don’t count Edwards out. He’s a smarty. I find it interesting that our two premier choices on the Democratic side are a Black Freshman Senator who was schooled in Saudi-sponsored Madrasas for a short time and A female ex-First Lady who claims, in her book, that she had no idea that Bill was cheating on her, or even prone to such behavior. I doubt the vigilance of a woman who didn’t at least KINDA see that coming. Will she notice the armies invading after they’ve sacked the city? Who knows. Interesting days though. I will try to dig out some thought nuggets and string them through the landscape of this site Hopefully y’all will post some of your own nuggets and let me know what’s REALLY going on out there.
God Bless America. She Rocks…
