I like both Obama and Clinton, but there’s that age old question of whether or not Americans will vote for what would be a historical first for this nation: Making either a black man or a woman President. Of the two I’m inclined towards Clinton for the simple reason that I thought her husband did a pretty good job as President, at least when he wasn’t getting hummers from the interns, and if she assembles much the same team as he did she may be able to clean up the latest mess the Republicans have generated for the country and perhaps get us back to a time of budget surpluses. Though that last bit may be a tad much to hope for considering all the damage the Bush administration has done to the national debt.
I’ve written before of the problems with Sen. Brownback and if ever there was someone who could conceivably be an even worse President than George W. Bush then I’d say Brownback is the top candidate. Brownback’s fundy tendencies makes Bush look like a liberal Episcopalian in comparison. So I’m hoping he never makes it past the primaries especially if Obama or Clinton manage to win theirs.
Still there’s more than enough time left for this to get even more interesting and I’m sure it probably will before it’s all done and over with.
