However, those that want to cast the first stone of guilt by association should look at their own candidate, and perhaps even their own behavior. How many have belonged to a Church where the leader made derogatory comments about Jews or other special groups?

How many religious dogma will not tolerate those with a gay life style?

When Hillary associated her and mccain's experience as being qualified to be president, while Obama is just a speech, that was the beginning of the self-destruction of both Democratic candidates.

She does NOT have that much more experience than Obama, and Obama had much more experience than Bill Clinton when he ran for president.

If the Democrats were really concerned about experience they would have nominated someone like Joe Biden

When this campaign started, Clinton supporters indicated that Hillary was tough because she had already been through the ringer, and the republican attack machine wouldn't be able to touch her.

From just observing the way she has run this campaign so far, against someone who wasn't even supposed to have a chance, she is not so impressive.

If she gets the nomination, the guilt by association they are accusing Obama of, will be ten or twenty fold against her associations.

1. you just don't get it
the fact that he can see any redeeming value whatsoever in Rev. Wright; that he does not call immediately for him to be burned at the stake, makes him evil incarnate

4. She never said that Obama did not have the necessary experience.
People who don't like the truth misquote people. Hillary has been consistently misquoted by people who don't want her actual words to be heard.

Hillary's actual words were: "Hes never been the president, but he will put forth his lifetime of experience. I will put forth my lifetime of experience. Senator Obama will put forth a speech he made in 2002.

Look at the words. Where does Hillary say Obama does not have the 'experience'?

Nowhere. Instead, she is employing a clever rhetorical device. Considering that BO's entire campaign seems to have been based on a single speech he made in 2002, a speech that BO says demonstrates why he has the "judgment" to be president, all Hillary is doing is saying: "Okay, I'll give you that one speech in 2002 that you keep going on and on and on about. Now, that aside, let me ask you if you think you will be as ready for the job as Senator McCain and I?"

She NEVER said BO was inexperienced. What she said to the reporters was, "You will have to ask HIM if he thinks he is qualified. I've told you what I think about McCain and me."

Of course, it doesn't matter what people actually say these days. What matters is what your political enemies are dishonest enough to SAY you said.
