Republican entertainment

I have paying a consistent passing interest to the actual content of the Presidential debates and have noticed how the notion of "change" is so prominent in much of the content of discussion. Edwards and Obama chided Clinton last night in New Hampshire for being an establishment candidate, which she in fact is, more than the others save for Richardson perhaps, but he doesn't count so much for obvious reasons.

Anyhow, the clip below came to mind. Mostly for how Republicans might see Hillary's candidacy. However the same is applicable, perhaps more so to Romney (particularly if you're Lawrence O'Donnell). It all depends on what side of the isle your standing in. This isn't to condemn Hillary, mind you. This is just my strange effort to entertain a broader audience. So, try and enjoy.

  • I would love to support Obama, but I have watched several debates and he seems to never completely explain his ideas and exactly HOW he will "change things". All I'm hearing/seeing is "we need change, we need change," and then no substance. The only change we really need is a leader that will regain and retain the respect of other nations, perform his/his role with integrity, and keep church and state completley separate at all levels of government.

  • PV,

    Thanks for playing! I have considered that lack of substance and you're right, for the most part. However, it would seem that he as the temperment, pragmatism and intellect to achieve the changes you mention.

    Mind you, I am not blindly supporting him. My vote is still live. However, it won't count for much, primary-wise, since I am in New Jersey. I am more pro-Edwards because of his substance and populism. His campaign just doesn't seem to have legs. Signs point to him spoiling for a Veep spot. We'll see.

    As a side/visceral note, after having Bush for so long, it would be so refreshing to have a President that is such a gifted orator? Methinks so.
