Weigh it out

15 02 2008

After Obama’s national 7 state, 1 territory sweep this past week, the Clinton campaign is scrambling to catch up. In a way I find this situation quite amusing seeing that Hillary underestimated the “junior” Senator from Illinois–barely refraining herself from patting him on the head when he announced that he would be running for President this year.

It is also quite amusing that she continues to campaign under the ” I am more experienced” banner when it has become apparent that Obama is out-raising and out-campaigning her. So much for being Junior, eh?

On Sunday while rallying in Virgina, one of the only states besides Maine, Senator Clinton stated, “Yes, Obama won Louisiana. It is because it has a strong, proud African American constituency.” What she forgot to mention was that the other three states he won over the weekend have a negligible black constituency. Well, I guess we can no longer say that he is winning because of the black vote which has not been the case since the beginning. Oh and BTW if you have not received the memo, he won all states and territories this weekend.

Furthermore, while campaigning in El Paso, TX which she flew to before even getting the results from the Potomac States caucuses and primaries, she made another derogatory statement, after finding out that Obama won all three states on Tuesday. She said, “Oh the states he won does not matter. They are just small states. I plan to win the big three, Texas, Ohio, and PA.” I won’t even mention the fact that she refused to campaign in the states she felt she would not win. For real, Hill? This says a lot to me about her character. I thought you were running for the President of the USA, Hill, not the President of the big states? We won’t even discuss the fact that she stated at a rally that she needed the Latino vote and that is what matter because they make up a large constituency in those the big 3.

Another peak into Hill’s lack of courtesy and integrity, in this New York Times article, one of Hill’s aides stated that Hillary is willing to take “incendiary steps” including suing the DNC to have the delegates of Florida and Michigan seated at the Convention. Incendiary steps–I guess her attitude is ‘by any means necessary” which conveys to me that she is all about power and not the people. Despite these shameful acts, I still know people who wish to have this woman as their President.

On to better things, today I read a blog by a Republican Mommy who endorsed Obama. She felt that he is the best candidate she has seen in years. So I guess she is an official Obamacan?

Today, I met with the Obama staff and let me tell you, when the guy says he is all about youth, he isn’t lying. 95% of his staff are young under 30-somethings who are excited and infectious about this candidacy. He has touched each and every one of them in some amazing way. I have never seen so much excitement. The momentum is building and once the ball begins to roll it never stops, it only picks up speed– and this ball is the Obama campaign. What you see is what you get.

I will pose a question to my readers, who do wish to have as President? Someone who may lack experience but has proven that they have excellent leadership skills and integrity? Or someone who has proven and continues to prove that they have no integrity at all and becoming President is all about power? Think long and hard–if you pay attention you will notice that one candidate’s words and actions line up but the other does not. After saying all that–I employ you all to get out and vote.

Baracking out!!
