No not obsession. You see EVERYONE making such huge mistakes, much like the '00 and '04 elections and you just cant help getting frustrated. To see stupidity win yet again for the 3rd election in a row is just fucking crazy. With Clinton gone we have only shit to vote on, on either side. There is no winning scenerio, were just fucked.

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.

Sorry, I just doing see those issues as being big issues. Not as big as Obama's history or McCain's "stay the course" crap.

You might need to expand your reading a bit. Not sure how old you are but if you lived through Clinton [1992-2000] as an adult you watched a series of ethical issues come through the gates. None were ever big enough to impeach [nor should they have been] but cumulatively they pack a pretty good punch.

If you don't think that the RNC, McCain, the Swiftboaters, Rush, Faux and the rest of the right will not be pounding on those issues DAILY you are sadly uninformed. If you think that the press and Obama have been "unfair" to Hillary to date, a general election will make you bleed out of every orifice.

Just the simple incident of Vince Foster's office documents which Hillary's campaign manager Maggie Williams [then her chief of staff] HID in Hillary's bedroom closet after Foster's suicide. This was so investigators would not find them.

That one event alone, which is a ONE HOUR event inside the White House trumps Obama's personal religion or race issues hands down. The RIGHT will use that for the entire election season. And IT is purely factual, not rumor and conjecture.
