Senator Clinton says: “We’re all advocating for change. We all want to change the status quo, which is George W. Bush and the Republican domination of Washington.”
Really? Is that the “change” being called for by Edwards and Obama? Because I heard their call for change to be bigger than this. To be more fundamental. We’ve not made progress if change gets us to a world where lobbyists influence Democrats rather than Republicans. It’s not “change” if we get back to a world where the Lincoln Bedroom goes to a leading Democratic fundraiser rather than a Republican. If the only “change” at stake here is a change in the party in control, then there’s no much to get excited about.
After carefully reviewing the candidates positions and background histories, I’ve decided Obama is the candidate for me in the upcoming election. John Edwards, however, is a very close second.
I found a yellow lab wandering the street today. She had stopped traffic as she slowly walked across the street without a care in the world. I put up some flyers and will take her to Animal Control later if no one calls. Here’s hoping!
Are you kidding me. They should be ashamed.
Did principal photography on a short today. It was a grueling experience overall, but after hours of setup, when that first shot appears in the viewfinder, it’s exhilarating. I can only imagine the pain of producing a full blown movie. Hopefully on google video soon!
What is the deal with Barack Obama? Why does this guy have so much buzz, when as far as I can tell, he’s never actually accomplished anything as a law maker. Apparently the only thing he’s ever done is give a mediocre speech at the DNC, and yet he’s a frontrunner in the race for Democratic candidate for president. What?!? I swear John Edwards gives better speeches, and at least he could bring 15 electoral votes from NC. The Democrats already took Illinois in ’04. In order to beat McCain in ’08, the Dems will need all the help they can get.
The Republicans have two very strong candidates in Rudy Giuliani and McCain. I think Giuliani would definitely win a general election, but he may be too liberal to win the primary. McCain is most likely going to take the primary with ease.
But who knows, maybe Obama could beat him. Like I said, I don’t get what the buzz is all about, and I don’t know if it can be sustained all the way till Nov ’08. I wish someone could explain to me what all this fuss a first term senator out of Illinois seems to be mustering up.
