I'd like to set aside
the stench of HRC's underhanded hypocrisy for a moment and ask: If she deserves credit for her stint as co-pres, why does she deserve a third, or fourth, term at the expense of renewing a stagnant and ineffectual Democratic party with the most compelling candidate we've seen in 40 years?

Wasn't it her "first" term that paved the way for eight years of global bloodshed and right wing religious fanaticism?

1. To answer your question: she doesn't.
"Deserve" another "term" in the WH.

I don't find Obama the least bit compelling, though. If she wins, it won't be at the expense of renewal, at least, not the renewal I would like to see.

Other than skin color, Obama does not represent the change I wish to see.
