With Whitewater and travelgate and cattle trading and snipers and now the RFK thing and all that, what makes you think Clinton would have been better? Therein lay the problem all along.
She lost my vote for the Bosnia SniperGate thing. She is a provable, on tape, in public, liar. The Republicans would play her self-serving exaggerations and blatant lying over and over again, and it was so blatant and obviously done for craven reasons that I just can't see how she could be elected, it was over for her right there. Obama must be pretty clean himself, because so far the only thing the GOP and these Limbaugh Operation Chaos guys have on him is all this guilt-by-association smear stuff, a game that two can play and that most people find as pretty ho-hum, given the fact we all hear all kinds of crazy shit all day from all kind's of people and we are in the end still individuals with our own minds and conscience.
The GOP's real problem is the issues. Iraq is still an absolute mess. The economy is a mess for the middle class. They can throw all the "your pastor's a crazy nigger" they want him, at the end of the day, that old fossil McCain has to stand next to Obama in the debates. If it was Hillary, it would the Same Old Democrat against The Old Dude. Instead, we are going to have real debates about our future, and morons like "Destroyer" who play "Obama's a Muslim" and all the rest of those stupid high school games are going to do Obama more good than harm.
Recall that earlier generations faced down fascism and communism not just with missiles and tanks, but with sturdy alliances and enduring convictions. They understood that our power alone cannot protect us, nor does it entitle us to do as we please. Instead, they knew that our power grows through its prudent use; our security emanates from the justness of our cause, the force of our example, the tempering qualities of humility and restraint.
