Still Pondering the Election

I'll continue with my election topic of my last post and say that this You Tube video is interesting and getting lots of attention:

Sure, it is manipulative, but is it moving, which is what a good speach, or a good video is supposed to do, right? Barack is a good speaker, and very appealing.

The real question right now is "Who can beat McCain?" When it comes right down to it, it does not matter if Hillary or Barack will make a better president. What matters, is who can win?

I've been reading up on this a bit, and it seems Hillary is known for being more of a strategist and Barack as a bridge-builder. Both are great qualities for a leader to possess. Overall, I'm still leaning towards Hillary, but I sure like the energy Barack brings to the election. Seems like a long time since people, especially young people, were so excited about a presidential candidate. Let's face it, our choices, and the "vote" over the past 8 years, has given us little to be excited about, plus sent out the message that our votes don't really matter since election results can be bought. *sigh*

That wasn't very uplifting, was it?

OK - how's this? Hillary or Barack - either one would be a very exciting choice and one of them HAS to win because we can't let the Republicans stay in the White House. It is time for a positive change!

Mmmm. I'm disturbed that we are in a state of disarray such that you say "it does not matter if Hillary or Barack will make a better president. What matters, is who can win", because it *should* matter!! I'm not disagreeing, per se, but isn't it sad that we would even consider voting for someone because they can win? sighh. Yes, we'll be better off that we are now, but I want, in my idealistic little heart, to vote for the person I think would be the best prez for Ameican people!!

It is a sad state of affairs. :(
