Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton: New Best Friends?
Abbey, I disagree with you on the debt issue. It's not that I don't like Hillary, because I do. I wrote until my arms fell off about her courageous and ferocious campaign and how superior a candidate she was to Obama. Lately, however, my estimation of her has been going down like a boulder in the ocean.
People who try to defend Sen. Clinton's recent cozying up to Obama portray it all as something beyond her control. I'm told, "She had to do it to preserve her career." Her career!?!? What about preserving and protecting her country? Obama portrayed her as a warmonger, a liar, and a racist. Does any of that matter to her? Exactly, what does this career protection say about her character?
John McCain once said, "I'd rather lose the presidency than lose a war." I'd like to find even ONE Democrat, including HIllary, who says anything roughly comparable. When John McCain spent five years in the "Hanoi Hilton," I don't believe he thought much about career opportunities. In this regard, some Hillary defenders sound more like her indicters.
I'm not trying to be insulting...just telling it like it is. This is a matter of national importance, and personal feelings may have to take a back seat. I guarantee that anyone who hates the GOP, or McCain will end up hating Obama more if he becomes President...which he will if enough people stay home, or write in, or vote for a third party/candidate.
