lately that there is a reason that obama and edwards are doing so well against- well any rebthug candidate out there- and clinton. hillary is too much of a cozy conservative for the left for one thing. as for the rethugs- i think folks in america are hungry for a change. we had 12 years of disastrous domestic policies under reagan/bush then we were saddled with 12 years of disastrous policies all around with the rethug congress and bushlite. i think folks at the very least are hungry for---integrity. yes, a little bit of integrity. so far, the rethugs have been pulling out all of the stops to smear obama and edwards- and they have resorted to calling obama a 'rookie'; attempting to paint his church as anti american and racist; and oh boy- he smokes. edwards apparently loves politics more than god- even though it was his wife's decision to continue with the campaign- and oh- they have a big house. uh huh.
perhaps they should take a magnifying glass to their own candidates. americans are tired of arrogant, 'we know better than you' rhetoric and they have seen what it has done to the country. there isn't a day that goes by that there isn't some scandal or whiff of corruption coming out of the right side of things. now, don't get me wrong- the left is certainly not squeaky clean- but at this point, any more time spent under rethug, neo con "governance" would be a mistake. as it is, it is going to take generations to even start undoing what they have done- and i just don't think that this country will ever really recover. sad.
