Better Looking V. More Fit For the Job

Hillary, please.
If America was so ready for real change, as Obama says, it would have done something to stop all the criminal activity of the past eight years while we were as one nation, under oil.

Of course I like him myself and would like to see change. But I don't think he can bring about change with inspiring speeches. I don't see him as ready to fight the bad guys properly and they're not going away anytime soon. Thinking their time is done is incredibly naive. There will be more Cheneys and they will kill more people, steal from entire nations and generations, and the American on his couch enjoying Obama's speeches will continue to do nothing to stop the empire.

In 2008, most Americans are too busy working to approach critical analysis of the propaganda thrown at them by advertisers and media. Many haven't been provided the opportunity for an education that teaches you to read between the lines. Real change takes time and effort and America isn't in a position to do that hard work right now. The country has been debilitated by eight years of fear, manipulation, and of the pillaging of the economy. What America needs is a competent leader like Hillary who will clean up the mess that is our foreign policy, economy, and education and health care systems. Despite his popularity, JFK didn't do much as president. He was great at being Hollywood. Obama isn't prepared to do battle with the repubs and push through key policy. He's approached the race without an economic proposal and is banking on his public image to put him in the seat of world leader, rather than real know-how.

Hillary is fit to fight the anti-democratic forces in Washington, like those in this past administration, and win. To fight the machine of politicians engaged in a policy of self interest, you must be in the machine with your own mechanized army. If Obama wins and if he is then elected to the presidency, he may easily become a do-nothing president, and possibly through little fault of his own, but rather through not being prepared to work the machine. The country can't afford that at this point in our history. I hope he gets his chance to work for change. In about eight years from now.
