To hear Hillary Clinton speak you would think that she was the entire Clinton administration rolled up into one as she is saying she was the "face of America" abroad during the Clinton presidency. Oh really?? If she was so important during the Clinton presidency then why didn't other world leaders meet with her instead of Bill or his Secretary of State? Her visits as the First Lady were not on the same level as those of the president. So what if she went all over the world? That doesn't make her an expert on foreign policy, it just makes her a world traveler like millions of other people.
While I do not think that Barack Obama has any better experience, I thought he had a great comment on Hillary's laughable exaggeration:
I think the fact of the matter is that Sen. Clinton is claiming basically the entire eight years of the Clinton presidency as her own. Except for the stuff that didn't work out, in which case she says she has nothing to do with it...There is no doubt that Bill Clinton had faith in her and consulted with her on issues in the same way that I would consult with Michelle, If there issues. On the other hand, I don't think Michelle would claim that she is the best qualified person to be a United States Senator by virtue of me talking to her on occasion about the work I've done.
GOI: Obama, however, is still more electable then Shrillary Clinton according to a new poll. It shows that just about any candidate in the GOP field could beat her:
WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Democratic front-runner Hillary Clinton trails five top Republican presidential contenders in general election match-ups, a drop in support from this summer, according to a poll released on Monday. Clinton's top Democratic rivals, Barack Obama and John Edwards, still lead Republicans in hypothetical match-ups ahead of the November 4, 2008, presidential election, the survey by Zogby Interactive showed.
GOI: Yet she still claims that she is the best candidate to beat the Republicans and so Democrats, if you want to lose yet another presidential election then by all means, it appears that you should vote for Hillary Clinton.
And yes, although Obama doesn't have the most experience, a long resume as he stated does not mean a person automatically has good judgment. He cited Vice President Dick Cheney and former Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld, saying "they led us into the worst foreign policy disaster in a generation," meaning the Iraq war. He also reminded us that while JFK had to somewhat "learn on the job," he turned out to one of this countries best presidents. Obama doesn't have insider experience but perhaps that is just what we need, someone with experience from outside the beltway. He's not my first choice but I'd rather go with him then Chillary Clinton.
