i don't think she is a crazy bitch and i don't think he is our savior.

i guess their political agendas are not very different in the end...

what really makes him stand out for me is the way he is handling this whole thing with such integrity. he is not saying certain things, or changing his mind on things just to suit public opinion. he is not sinking low down to the dirt slinging campaign culture. to me he seems really free of the "political poison" that the other candidates are so full of. the other day hillary's campaign said she was one of the contributors to peace in northern ireland. they had the irish nobel peace price winners on tv saying that it was bullshit. so you know what i'm saying? just making up shit to make herself look better. obama seems to really respect his surroundings.

the other stuff, which is kin of part of the integrity thing i guess, is how he wants to implement changes to how much power lobbyists have in politics. one of the things that has always disturbed me with capitalism is that money and greed is deciding things that should be decided by heart and reason. i don't want the oil companies influencing the enviromental politics like that. or pharmaceutical companies health care. or weapon suppliers war. or extreme rights christians abortion/gay marriage and so on. know what i'm saying? he is planning a lot of action against this sort of thing.

i guess i'm just really disgusted by the poisonous "politics as usual" that the other candidates live by, and happy to see someone raise himself above it.

as for the experience argument i think hillary clinton has a lot less experience than her campaign is claiming. i also think obama's experience outside washington can bring a lot more positive than number of years in the senate.

am i making sense? :p

yeah i guess youre making sense but the thing is hillary and obama DO have almost identical political agendas, hillary is just more aggressive.. it annoys me that people seem to make fun of that, but if she were a man everyone would've thought that shes a great leader and whatever
i do believe that some obnoxious things she does can harm her in the end, but at the same time i think her personality will shake everyone up and make things change.
if she becomes americas first female president and screws things up it will obviously damage every other womans chances at ever becoming the head of the white house[obviously the same can be said about barack becoming the first black president, but everyone seems to think hes flawless so it seems irrelevant to even consider that he can actually screw up too]

ether way i will be happy as long as democrats and liberals ~rule the world~

Yeah just take a look at our last and only female prime minister.

Maggie screwed things up so bad, but that was just her.
