9. Obama says the FBI mole is lying...Obama said he only had "lunch with Rezko 2/3 times a year"......
Edited on Sat Mar-15-08 02:23 PM by ElsewheresDaughter
Obama is in DEEP SHIT here and keeps revising his story.....how many more times will he revise?

The FBI says Obama was in and out of Rezko's office almost daily and that Obama spoke on the phone with Rezko DAILY"

31. ummm... his biggest thing qualifying him for Prez is judgement... This is not a good thing
and Clinton has admitted that she regrets the vote knowing what she knows now.

Obama was not even in the Senate and was not privy to the info, flawed as it was, that the other Senators had, so I give that minimal weight.

Its one thing to be an armchair Senator, it is another to actually be in the game. I find the fact that his votes on Iraq have been exactly the same as Clintons since Day One of his term in the Senate.

7. Given the major errors in judgments of the Clintons and McCain, I'd say Obama's is superior
It's not perfect, but then I don't expect anyone to be perfect. It is still quite good.

45. If you prefer it then, Hillary has made many more bad judgments than Obama, imho
Iraq and Cluster Bombs are two of the very bad judgments she has made. She has a bunch of questionable financial dealings compared to Obama's one as well.

Obama's record isn't perfect, but he has never claimed perfection. His record is much better than the opposition, however.
