So This Is Dear Leader's Way of Uniting Us?

This item ran in the Washington Post on August 15th, 2007:
Drawing a sharp contrast with Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton, his main rival for the Democratic presidential nomination, Sen. Barack Obama said in an interview that he has the capacity she may lack to unify the country and move it out of what he called "ideological gridlock."

"I think it is fair to say that I believe I can bring the country together more effectively than she can," Obama said. "I will add, by the way, that is not entirely a problem of her making. Some of those battles in the '90s that she went through were the result of some pretty unfair attacks on the Clintons. But that history exists, and so, yes, I believe I can bring the country together in a way she cannot do. If I didn't believe that, I wouldn't be running."
If, for the sake of argument, we posit that this man's opinion was correct, then I shudder to imagine how Mrs. Clinton would have "united" the country if she had been elected.

  1. To his credit, he has united many disparate groups against him, and I suspect that this trend will continue.

  2. Here's what I don't understand...WE elected these officials. This is supposed to be a "government for the people, by the people". Aren't they supposed to do what we tell them to do?

  3. Has anyone figured out his real persona yet? Is this it? Because THAT scares me.

  4. Isn't it great when the President of the United States tells the world that he thinks that half of his country doesn't think for itself? Inspiring!
