Indecision 2008

Catching up with the latest round of debates among the Democratic candidates, I cannot avoid a sense of deja vu.

It seems obvious that Hillary Clinton is, in fact, a space alien. It is difficult to believe that she has gotten this far without saying, "The politics of failure have failed. We have to make them work again."

Related thought: Barack Obama embodies Clintonism with a human face.

It's seeming more and more as if this might be the time to donate to the Moore-Alexander campaign....

From over here it all looks so muggy... so over the top... like watching stage-acting with your earplugs stuffed in.

Wow. When will all of you realize that if you want real change in the US, you need to THINK and stop voting with image and trends. And, above all, stop mixing faith with politics. We have avoided it in Europe (where we have free education and free healthcare, and we actually enjoy debates over issues rather than sounbites), and we are far better off for that. We have a brain that works!!! And, above all, stop allowing huge sums of money being wasted. There should be equal time, equal (low) funds, and it should be all about policies. So, in a word, of of the candidates you have, you should vote for Hilary Clinton, IF YOU ACTUALLY STOP AND LISTEN to what the woman (or is this an issue?) is actually saying. THINK!

Yeah -- just think, we could have candidates like Sarkozy and Berlusconi!

Europhilia is a taste niche, not a politics. Thanks for all the advice, though. I'm sure nobody in the States ever would have thought of any of it.
