This question about senator Obama's experience is silly. I was happy to vote for Hilary Clinton when she ran for the Senate the first time. Shortly thereafter, I acquired the realization that I would not have given her my vote had she at any time before her campaign, divorced President Clinton. I think that all of us who supported (or still support) her need to face that very real aspect of our affection for her. Hilary Clinton is popular & accepted due to her association with one of our most beloved presidents of recent years. No one questioned the fact that she had never held public office before she ran for the Senate. Sorry, but he fact that she was our First Lady for 8 years did not qualify her for the job.
I think it's pretty wonderful that our Democratic candidates are debating foreign policy. The Republicans, please note, are still stuck on abortion, gays and Mexicans.
If "whatever happened to the audacity of hope" is as nasty as it gets, we're doing ok.
Btw, I'm an Edwards supporter.
Obama needs to counteract Hillary's "too youthful" accusations, by redirecting all bullets directed at him, back at her, citing her lame complacentness while witnessing her husbands array of floozies, lackies, and southern whores. What kind of president would ignore this?
