Obama vs Clinton Posted on 04-10-2007

Looking at the growing number of candidates for the Democratic nomination, it is clear to me that the race is really between Obama and Clinton. Everyone else is really shoved to the side. It would take a monumental downfall for these two to not be 1-2 in the running. In this case, it would lead voters to vote for the following for President: 1.) Be led by a woman 2.) Be led by a black man 3.) Vote Republican I still do not think America will want the country to be led by a woman. I do not mean to sound male chauvinistic or anything, but that is what I feel. And let's face it, women had the right to vote waaay before they let any black folk do it, man or woman. And then there's the Republican vote. The last 2 Republican Presidents led us to war, with the more recent one, seemingly not knowing what he is doing. So what will the average Joe (*I mean white America*) do when they have to make that choice? I would be very curious to see what the outcome would be, especially the traditional Democratic voting white male. As for the above mentioned person, I am reminded of a clip from Brewsters Millions when he told the People to vote None Of The Above.

I am curisous to know if your reason for voting for Obama is because he is black? I believe the next president will inherit the most messed-up government since the great depression. Therefore he/she will be blamed for all the failures of his/her predecessor, "Bush." Damned if they do and Damned if they don't. It took a Clinton to clean up the first "Bush" mess! I believe it is going to take another Clinton to clean this mess up as well. Let Hillary be the clean-up woman. At least Obama would not be the first Black President with so much mess to overcome. The Clinton's are good at making and cleaning up mess... Hillary cannot win the Primary election without Obama's support. Therefore Hillary will have to have Obama as VP in order to win. Then Obama will be in great position to be president when things are good. Besides, Obama is really young and lacks the necessary experience to actually pull this country together. It is one thing to be able to talk the talk, but can Obama walk the walk??? That reamins to be seen... But at the end of the day, the citizens of the United State will not be thinking with their heads but with their stomachs...
Hm...I used to think it was about Obama or Clinton but in actuality, it's about Jed Bush. You think it's f--ed up, now...wait eight years from now when it's time for another election. It doesn't matter who gets into the Presidential seat now, they'll have a good run for the first four years, get re-elected again, and by this time, I have a feeling that people will by some unfounded devastation of stupidity will forget Bush's jackassery and vote for his brother, Jed. Them Bushes don't play. See, my hate for them idiots is old school. I hated them suckas back in '88 with the first Bush.

If I were to vote for a democrat, it would definetely be Obama. I mean, yes, he lacks experience, but who really cares? Anyway, the reasons I am voting for Obama in the primaries is because: 1. He grew up in a muslim household. If any candidate were to understand the Sunni muslims over in Pakistan and Afghanistan, it would definetely be him. 2. The middle east isn't listening to us now and they don't have much respect for women over there. So...what makes you think they'd be willing to take Clinton seriously? 3. Obama is running his own campaign. Clinton is having her husband doing speeches at her campaigns now. Just after Nevada, Hillary has had her husband speak on her behalf during her campaign trail. We're not voting for him. We're voting for her, the least she could do is run her own show. 4. Hillary is the biggest baby during the debates. All she does is try to attack Obama (which almost always backfires) on every issue. Sometimes, it doesn't even deal with the issue being discussed. I don't agree with everything Obama does but I think if Hillary ran the country, it would be a disaster.

No matter who you are or what your beliefs may be you still can feel the change and the direction our country is taking. Barack Obama is the best Representative for the land we call America. This great nation needs an impartial person who can see the issues our great nation faces without division. This has been the downfall of our country from Day one. We need someone who stands for the equality of all people. Barack Obama brings us the hope that one day we can achieve peace and equality in our great nation, The United States Of America and lead the world by setting the example of being united. Barack Obama is trying to unite these broken United States. There is only one candidate in the race for the presidency, who was made for uniting America. This is Barack Obama! Listening to his inspirational speeches and reading about his multi-cultured upbringing makes me feel any person raised with such social and cultural differences so close to home would make a proper president for this melting pot we call the United States Of America. He stands for Unity and Equality for all, From Sea to Shining Sea. So it only seems fit for all of us in this great nation who want the same to pull together and share our gratitude for the work and risks he faces daily during his campaign for presidency. Honk for Obama, Honk for Unity

It's funny to see how many people were wrong about Barack and Hillary making it this far... I don't think Hillary can take the heat that being the president of this country will bring... I'm going with Barack with my vote... You know if folks don't vote in the primarys you might not get to vote for your favorite, so vote on Tuesday!

Even though I am not a Democrat, I believe that if I had to vote for a Democrat it will be Senator Hillary. In all retrospect, Senator Hillary has more experience that Senator Barak. I was just reading in his book how hard of a time he had getting the Senate seat. I believe that he need to wait and gain more experience before trying to take on the Presidency; Although, it would be nice to have a black President, but to have an inexperienced one would be horriffying.
Since when being a First Lady makes anyone qualified to be President? What specific experience can anyone say Sen. Clinton has that makes her more qualified? I think people need to ask that question. Just because she keeps saying she has the experience does NOT mean that she does. I think what she's offering is nothing more than the illusion that she has more experience.

I hear that. Woman has done nothing I can account for in the very state she's a senator in, so...the only thing she's flashing around is her husband's Presidency...
