If you identify as a democrat or just plain tired of Repub bullshit then you have three options to chose for President of the United States, two of them truly viable:
1. Hilary Clinton
2. Barack Obama
3. John Edwards
Edwards is effectively out as a presidential possibility but has a chance as a VP.
That leaves Clinton and Obama
The Clinton years gave us NAFTA, Welfare Reform, The Expansion of the Prison Industrial Complex and Don’t Ask Don’t Tell
None of that was good.
If you look at her voting record you know she’s a fan of war, authoritative regimes and a buddy to big business.
None of that is good.
Obama is a relative new comer. He’s been on the wrong side of some important votes has more corporate money funding his campaign then I’d like and has been a bit wishy washy in his voting record but much of that has to do with his desire to run for President and not make any major waves ahead of tome.
I like what Edwards is saying but he still reeks of used car salesman and after four or five years of campaigning hasn't done much to affect the change he speaks of. Obama seems to be (overall) a decent guy AND possess the ability to bring disparate interests together and get something done that’s good for EVERYONE even though he seems to be light on the details.
Not perfect but good.
It’s a toss up. I know what I’m getting with Clinton and that Devil is one I DON”T WANT. In this case I’d rather roll with the Devi I don’t know.
