Are Clinton and Obama The Best We Could Do?

Filed under: Uncategorized — N @ 8:20 pm

Edwards is now gone and we are left with Hillary Clinton and Barak Obama. Is this the best we could do for candidates in such an important election for the health and welfare of our country? I don’t think so.

What we have now are two inferior candidates. One is Clinton who has a massive political and money machine and a former president for a husband but is a candidate that offers us nothing in the way or nation changing policies and really doesn’t stretch herself beyond what is safe to say politically.

The other candidate is Obama who somehow has very quickly raised a lot of money and mobilized a great many people by his message of change and hope. While it all sounds nice there is no substance or creativity to any of Obama’s plans for America.

Combine that with the fact that we as Democrats are asking America to vote for either a woman, which has never happened before, or a black man which has never happened before. In addition neither candidate has all that much true governmental experience and during their Senate tenures haven’t exactly been superstars.

I sincerely hope that I am wrong and I will strongly support whoever is the Democratic nominee but I can’t help but feel that as much as progress is essential this might not have been the time in history for it to happen.
