No matter who gets the Democratic nomination, McCain will have Hillary’s endorsement. Just like Ralph Nader gave us GW Bush and the Iraq war, Hillary is trying to give us McCain and a continuation of GW Bush policy and the Iraq war.

Cooler heads in the Democratic Party are patiently waiting for their moment to prevail. Super delegates like Nancy Pelosi and Tom Dashle and Ted Kennedy know what Hillary is doing to thier party. Hillary’s kichen sink /scorched earth policy has not resulted in Hillary but John McCain coming up in the polls .

Two of the most destructive phrases for the Democratic party and indeed the USA and the world were:

!. Raph Nader saying in 2000 that there was no difference between GW Bush and Al Gore. They were just “tweedledee and tweedledum”.

2. Hillary saying in 2008 that only she and McCain were qualified to be Commander-in-Chief and that Obama had only a speech that he made in 2002.


I submit that , Obama demonstrated, EVEN BY HILLARY’S DEFINITION, even before he was a US Senator, that his grasp of foreign affairs and understanding of the political and military consequences of the Iraq invasion was far superior to that of people with decades of military and political “experience ” in Washington. Obama not only had the relavant knowledge but the requisite judgement to arrive at the right conclusion and answer to the problem.

If anyone has demonstrated that he has the knowledge, intelligence, common sense and judgement to handle that hypothetical 3 AM phone call it is Barack Obama.

Some of the relavant observations in Obama’s 2002 speech are the following. (for the full speech ,google obama oct 2002 iraq)

“But I also know that Saddam poses no imminent and direct threat to the United States, or to his neighbors, that the Iraqi economy is in shambles, that the Iraqi military a fraction of its former strength, and that in concert with the international community he can be contained until, in the way of all petty dictators, he falls away into the dustbin of history.

I know that even a successful war against Iraq will require a US occupation of undetermined length, at undetermined cost, with undetermined consequences. I know that an invasion of Iraq without a clear rationale and without strong international support will only fan the flames of the Middle East, and encourage the worst, rather than best, impulses of the Arab world, and strengthen the recruitment arm of al-Qaeda.

I am not opposed to all wars. I’m opposed to dumb wars.”


At least Hillary now agrees with Obama that the Iraq war is a dumb war which makes her better than McCain who still wants to pursue that idiocy.



  1. Wow, reading this was a total waste of my time. You should be forced to compensate me for losing 3 mins of my life.

  2. JA

    I wrote this back on March 12th. I thought that Hillary’s saying that only she and McCain had enough “experience” to be commander-in-chief. So if Obama got the nomination, McCain has an endorsement by Hillary and if got the nomination, since McCain has more “experience” than she, she admits that he is more qualified.

    Sorry that I wasted your time.

  3. This was not a waste of time but a cogent observation that was accurate in March and still holds true in May

  4. Thanks for reminding us of what is important in this election – sound judgement and true patriotism – even when it is unpopular to stand up and speak out. Obama has my vote. God bless America!

  5. People keep talking about “EXPERIENCE” and then stop thinking.

    For openners, do they recognise that there is a difference between 20 years of experience and one year of experience twenty times? Experience must be evaluated in terms of both quality and quantity.

    There are several other words that need to be considered alongside of experience. They are: Common sense, training,and judgement.

    My definition of common sense is the ability to make the right decision or solve a problem without special training or experience.

    Good judgement can be the result of the interplay of: training, common sense and experience. These factors can be combined in various proportions to result in good judgement.

    In October 2002, Obama had sufficient experience, training and common sense to have the good judgement to realize that Iraq would be a dumb war.

  6. Obama was absent when the voting was for the war as he was absent from the senate at least 130 times. Obama went to Iraq one time only and didn’t care less about the war then. And he still don’t care about Iraq. All he is interested in is making history for himself and using the white people to do it for him. Hillary is right, Obama has no capabilities to run this country because he blunders on foreign policy to begin with making statements about meeting with the enemy. Our enemies must be dancing in the street if he is elected planning their next move because they know he doesn’t know what he is doing.

  7. If Obama is the nominee I hope that all her voters will switch to McCain so that this country will not go down under by a candidate that doesn’t have the experience or capabilities to run this country. Obama does have the ability to run it to the ground. What Hillary should do to knock him out of the presidency is to declare herself as an independent or all her voters should write her in. I am a democrat but would prefer McCain to Obama and since all the blacks are voting for Obama I am voting for my race. The blacks are always crying race but they aren’t voting for Hillary or McCain. They are more racial than the white people. And Obama ties to Wright and Pastor P. are the more reason not to vote for him. What is the matter with the white people today? Are they that dumb that they don’t know that Obama doesn’t like white people he is using them for the votes and John Kerry is looking for a job in his administration because he wouldn’t get it with Hillary. And so is Richardson. Hillary would be too smart to give them a job. I hope the superdelegates wake up and give Hillary the votes for the nomination or this country will go under with Obama.

  8. America will need God’s blessing if Obama wins the election because this country will be in deep trouble. Its this generaion of college students that 52% are on drugs as stated on the internet that are voting for Obama because they are in his category. He admits to being a drug addict and boozer in his college days. Hillary and McCain are not and never will be drug addicts and with a background like Obama has being racist and anti-american going to a racist church, close ties to Father P. why would a true American vote for a candidate like that. They have to be anti-american themselves.

    A. In October 2002 Obama was right on about the war when relatively few others did not have a clue. He said why Iraq would be a dumb war.Hillary got it wrong. Mccain has done some photo ops in Iraq during at least one of which he demonstrated lack of the most basic understanding of Iraqi politics. so much for his “experience”

    A perfect attendance certificate is not of prime importance. Communication is important. Meeting with the enemy, while showing them respect instead of posturing is more likely to get good results.

    B. Hillary would be my second choice after Obama. In the important things , Obama is far closer to Hillary than McCain. Maybe in some negative things Hillary and McCain are closer. maybe you do not want change.

    C. There is a difference between being a drug addict and experimenting with drugs. Hillary drinks but that may or may not make her an alcoholic.

  10. For those of you who insist that Obama is a leader, perhaps you should consider researching the facts related to his performance in Illinois as well as the lack of experience that he presents. The inept operation of the Illinois government, does not offer credence for the ideal lifestyle of the majority of Americans.
    To agree with the statements presented by the initial writer of this article is both ludicrous and uniformed. Individuals who attempt to convince the American people that Obama is patriotic, are far from reality.
    Next time, check Mr. Obama’s record before you post a comment or write an article. Biased politics are as ridiculous as claiming change in the future when you have no ideas regarding change or the ability to create a government that works in uniqueness

  11. Marianne Pepitone,

    Why so narrow-minded?! If you’re really concerned about the issues, how can you take a leap from the Democratic policies which Obama & Clinton both support over to McCain?

    No mention in your comments about McCain missing the vote on Veterans’ benefits so he could go to a closed door fundraiser with Bush.

    And FYI, Hillary started out with most of the Black vote until she & Bill played stupid “racial” politics. And BTW, whites have voted all white since this country started, so why can’t blacks vote black, d-u-u-u-h??!! And what exactly is a racist? You maybe?

    Comment by Proud Veteran — May 30, 2008 @ 2:42 pm

  12. Dr. Rick,

    Obama as a leader?

    1. Consider Barack as the leader of a political campaign that is on the verge of beating both Hillary and Bill Clinton- two giants in the Democratic party. Note that he is totally new to campaigning at this level. The Clintons have “experience” in numerous Arkansas Gubernatorial races two Presidential races, two Senate races….Their organization was said to b e powerfull.

    Obama’s experience was being a community organizer. He used his common sense to apply lessons earned there.

    Tip O’Neill said “All politics is local”

    2. People who understand leadership , recognised leaders, are flocking to back Obama. Kennedy, Richardson, Lee Hamilton , Edwards People that Hillary wanted badly.

    3. Obama was a state senator , not governor. You cannot blame everthing that is wrong in Illinois on Obama.

    Biased politics?

    1.I have voted for as many Republicans as I have voted for Democrats.

    2. I do not give a rat’s petutie if a black never becomes President. I was not particularly in sympathy with MLK’s movement in the sixties .

    3. I think Obama is the most qualified of the three and he just happens to be black.

    Dr. Don

  13. AS Long as Hillary loses it and cries back to her senate post in NY which she will prob lose in this next election I will be excitttteed. I hate Hillary hate her with everything I possess, either John McCain or Obama would be miles above Hillary.

  14. I wonder why Hillary and Bill are going down this path. She looks as if she is going to lose ugly and could well pull a Ralph Nader. Personality wise I like Obama and McCain better. But the Presidency is not a personality contest.

    McCain has been able to creat an image that is equal parts of “Top Gun ” and “Mr. Smith goes to Washington” while, in fact, the reality is far from either of those images.

    As a Naval Academy Midshipman and naval aviator, he was a rauchy party boy and a poor student but sustained by the fact that his father and grand father were 4 star admirals.

    A hotdogging risk-taking flyboy, among the 5 aircraft he lost, was an incident in which is believed by many crewmen and those who have investigated the case that McCain deliberately ‘wet-started’ his A-4E to shake up the guy in the plane behind his A-4. ‘Wet-starts’, done either deliberately or accidentally, shoot a large flame from the tail of the aircraft. In McCain’s case, the ‘wet-start’ apparently ‘cooked off’ and launched the Zuni rocket from the rear F-4 that touched off the explosions and a massive fire. The F-4 pilot was reportedly killed in the conflagration. McCain was quickly transferred to the USS Oriskany (the only Forrestal crewman to be immediately transferred). The disaster killed 134 sailors, destroyed at least 20 aircraft, and threatened to sink the ship.

    He flew a relatively unimpressive 23 combat missions during a total of 20 hours but was able to creat a hero status and a career in the Senate in part because his violenT temper which gave him credibility as a warrior. (In high school he got into so many fights that his nickname was McNasty.)

    He has blocked access to North Vietnamese records of his internment as a POW. While he claimed to have been in solitary confinement, he may well have been spending time with North Vietnamese prostitutes. He had let his captors know that he was the son of the commander of naval forces in Vietnam. We know for sure that he gave more than name rank and serial number.

    The well confirmed facts that he is a superstitious, compulsive gambler with an anger management problem is just to scarey for me to contemplate as our commander -in-chief.
