60. I respect Mr. Hart, but I think he gives too much credit to an unproven
Edited on Wed Jan-09-08 09:33 PM by wisteria
Senator Obama (he does give a damn good speech though) and too little credit to what Senator Clinton could accomplish. She is an individual in her own right- w/o her husband. Who says, her policies and commitments would be the same as former President Clinton.
And, there are other ways to bring this country back together. A major channel of discourse in this county comes from RW talk radio. They drone on and drum into people a couple of themes a week and these themes always trash Liberals, misrepresent us and distort our policy issues. And, it is done over and over again without any challenge. How about fighting to bring back the Fairness Doctrine? this would offer a different POV and it would water down their message to their listeners.

I am certainly not ready to choose one candidate over the other right now. But, I will certainly consider what Mr. Hart says, if and when I do decide to choose a candidate.
