What's your take? We are faced in this country with 2 "firsts" in this election. The first woman president and the first black president possibility. And, it appears that the country is really wrestling with these two choices.
Personally, I'm backing Hillary. Not just because she is a woman. Here are my reasons:
She is smart. Dare I say, smarter than Bill Clinton and that is really something.
She has been investigated almost the entire 8 years that she was first lady. There are no more surprises. She's been though it, and we all know her skeletons.
She has a passion to straighten out health care. She tried to overhaul the healthcare industry in 93, but the Washington cronies weren't about to have a first lady tackle such a "Presidential" task.
She comes with a built in advisor, former president Bill Clinton. Our country is in such disarray, she is going to need all the resources available to her.
She has pledged to take away corporate america's tax incentives if they ship jobs overseas.
It took a Clinton to clean up Bush Sr's mess and it will take a Clinton to clean up after Jr's mess.
During the Clinton years, we had a paid off debt with a surplus of funds to boot. People were employed, the stock market was booming and people weren't worried about losing their home.
Hillary and Barack
I'm not sure about Obama. The press is reluctant to expose his skeletons. I'm not sure why...the probing questions just aren't there like they were for Hillary. He's a talented orator to be sure, but I just have a nagging feeling there is more to the story than he lets on. Yet, he is doing the traditional politics crap that they all do. Yet, he isn't called on it. Why?
Either way....do the right thing and vote for your choice.
