[referring to Hillary's claim of 35 years of experience] That means she's 60 years old and got out of Yale at age 25, that means she's counting everything she's done since she got out of law school including her years with the Rose Law firm in Little Rock, the less said about perhaps the better. Now if experience matters this much I would just put this out, the most experienced president that we've ever had was the man who was 10 years in the House of Representatives, then Minister to Russia, then 10 years in the Senate, then Secretary of State for four years and then Minister to Great Britain. He then made the mistake of getting himself elected president and was the worst president that we've ever had, James Buchanan.Although Buchanan doesn't have much on Bush. Clearly experience doesn't mean everything and besides her experience is quite over exaggerated to say the least.
Barack Obama Picks Up Key Endorsement from a Foreign Policy Expert: From NBC's Domenico Montanaro
Sen. Jay Rockefeller has thrown his support behind Obama. Rockefeller is the chairman of the Senate Intelligence Committee. A senior Senator such as Rockefeller wouldn't put his years of foreign policy and intelligence experience behind Barack Obama if he felt that the Senator from Illinois didn't have the judgment to deal with foreign policy matters as the President of the United States. In addition, the Rockefeller endorsement helps inoculate Barack from the Super Delegates throwing the nomination to Clinton and thus ripping the party in two.
I saw on Meet the Press this A.M. that even if Hillary won Texas and Ohio on the 4th, she would have to win 70% of the elected delegates in all the remaining states to get the nomination which is highly unlikely. But don't pop the champagne corks yet folks, I wouldn't count the Clinton's out until the last nail is hammered into the coffin.
Before I wrap this post up I want to mention one more thing. The fear card that Hillary is playing via that "3 A.M. red phone call" ad is beyond the pale. She should have taken her husband's advice in 2004:
Thank-you Mr. President for the endorsement of my candidate, Senator Barack Obama!! We all know how smart Bill is so I would encourage everyone to follow this excellent advice and therefore vote for Obama. Because that is what he is implying in that video clip.
So Texas, Rhode Island, Ohio and Vermont help us push this movement over the top and vote for Barack Obama. It is time to turn the page and bring America back to greatness. Barack Obama is the leader for pushing bravely, without fear into this brave new world. We need a new kind of politician, one that inspires the next generations to take ownership in this country and the only candidate able to ignite that passion is Barack Obama. Dare to hope, dare to believe again and dare to lock arms together and push into the future. The best days for America lie ahead of us and we can all help make those better times a reality. This isn't about one person, the president but rather about we the people and that is what Obama is selling.
And finally, one piece of business. As you can see I've changed the name of the blog to, "The Political Junkie." You might want to change your links accordingly.
