I used to watch TV news and yell at the box. Now I jump up from the couch, sit at the computer and begin to type laughing maniacally saying "Wait until they read this." It's more fun than squashing tadpoles

I Agree with Hillary Clinton

Well sort of.

The contest between Clinton and Obama has left the skirmish faze and entering the real fighting faze. All the coziness of the most recent debate was show. All talk of Hillary going away quietly is wishful thinking. I must agree with her description of Obama's message.

"Now I could stand up here and say, let's get everybody together, let's get unified the sky will open, the light will come down, celestial choirs will be singing," she said, to a smattering of giggles. "And everyone will know we should do the right thing, and the world will be perfect."

She added: "But I have no illusions about how hard this is going to be. You are not going to wave a magic wand and make the special interests disappear."


The change rhetoric has carried Obama a long way with supporters who have no clue about what that change will be. His calls for getting along in Washington and doing business differently fit Mrs. Clinton's description quiet well. Just saying it will not make it so. Look how quickly the Republican Congress that came in during her husband's administration forgot why they were sent. Obama however is not the only one promising to wave the magic wand to make the world a better place. That analogy sums up the whole of the Democrat platform, Mrs. Clinton included.

Obama and Clinton both have ambitious and expensive vote buying schemes that have yet to be scrutinized for what they are, pure unadulterated socialism. Yet Obama is much better at masking it with rhetoric about a bright future. The only future we will have with these folks regardless of which one wins is a repeat of the Carter era of high taxes, high inflation and high unemployment.
