I have been watching with intense scrutiny the presidential political cycle since last year. I watched, I listened, and occasionally I commented on the theatrics. At first I was a Clinton supporter, but as time passed and the politics became thicker than year-old engine oil my fealty changed. Barack Obama has been doing everything possible to stick to the issues of the campaign at every stop. Talking at length with anyone who would listen about his plans for the economy, education, immigration, the war in Iraq, and how to get this country back on track.

We are close.
Can you believe how close we are?
It was not until I watched Senator Hillary Clinton Tuesday evening at the Democratic National Convention that I realized how close we were to actually electing a minority to the White House. She gave the good of the party speech I pleaded with Al Gore to give months ago.
At approximately 8:45pm August 26th, 2008, Senator Clinton took the stage. Introduced by her daughter, Chelsea Clinton, to a montage highlighting the matriarchal line from Chelsea, through Hillary, Hillary’s mother, and her grandmother; Senator Clinton came out to raucous applause.
Over the past several weeks I have gone from a Hillary supporter to an Obama supporter, but beyond charismatic qualities I could not really tell anyone why.
Until I came across this post: Hillary Clinton: The Psycho Ex-Girlfriend of the Democratic Party
Awesome in more ways than I can truly count; it sums up in a laughable way Senator Clinton’s arrogant attitude of self-entitlement and utter lack of ability to read the will of the American people.
