eeny, meeny, miney, moe...

I'm completely stumped at this point. Clinton, Obama, Edwards, someone else? The only thing I know for sure is I want a Democrat in office. I have a caucus to go to, so I've checked out a few political sites and some news sites. I've not been very thorough about this...really. Yet, what I have found is even the knowledgeable bloggers and other politico's, who spend hours daily on this, have the same issue. It's a toss up. Advantages and disadvantages abound for all candidates. I think what it really comes down to is we all want to back the EVENTUAL WINNER. We're afraid to pick someone and then find out that they weren't the one to save us all. Such cognitive dissonance is paralyzing. We love the idealism and promise of change that Obama brings to the table. We love the studied reason and personal strength of Edwards. And then there's Hillary Clinton. Of THE Clinton's. Brilliant minds. Killer instincts. But would it be Hillary actually leading. Or maybe it would be Bill. A puppetmaster. A Chaney to her Bush. On one hand, it seems like they have the best chance to win it all. On the other hand, what if they did?

I think Hillary had a hand in it all when Bill was President and he is such a diplomat, we need him for our foreign affairs. Bush has trashed our reputation everywhere. I still cannot understand why he has not been impeached!!

Clear back when Bill was president for the first time,I always wondered what it would be like with Hillary as president.
Now that is a real possibility!
She has what it takes to lead this country back into respectability..so GO HILLARY!

If ever there was a REAL reason for impeachment...surely it should be for starting a war!

I agree with everyone today. I love it when I can play nice. I back Hillary. I don't really care if she panders to get in, I think she'll do a great job once she's there. Of course she's got the additional pressure of being the first woman president, first female leader of a super-power, and if Bill chips in to help, I have nooooo problems with that.
