The Hillary vs. Barack thing is really reminding me of a history lesson from high school: During the suffrage movement at the early part of this century American women and African-Americans (men and women, obviously) were working side by side to obtain voting rights for all. And then the government granted voting rights ONLY to black men. I remember reading some rather scathing essays from female suffragists enraged from this decision. But this is the way the country will go. Men will always get the upper hand in these elections, no matter how racist the stupid voter is, they will vote for a man over a woman.

It's frustrating because I don't really love any of the candidates. I think that Hillary is the best suited for it, even though she has major problems. But so did Clinton 1 when we elected him and he turned out OK. Obama seems really cool, but just isn't that experienced. Ahhh. This is turning into a boring diatribe.

Obama has held elected office for over ten years. Why do you say he is inexperienced?

Less experienced. Not as qualified.
