[Vision2020] Barack Obama

Tom has my vote for most right-on analysis of voting for third party candidates whose efforts virtually guarantee a  loss for the Democrats.  Hillary Clinton disgusts me, but if Obama doesn't get the Democratic nomination, she'll have my vote because the stakes are too high to risk a McCain presidency.

Although I tend to agree with your sentiment, Dave, it is this attitude that will get McCain into the White House.


As much as  I passionately support Barack Obama, unless a third-party candidate has a serious chance of winning the November election, even if Barack Obama does not receive the party nomination, I will be casting my vote for the Democratic Party candidate.  


The alternative of "President McCain" scares me.  


What Bush has irresponsibly and unaccountably gotten away with, under the auspices of ignorant stupidity, will simply be cast aside as "senior moments" under President McCain, and 


- We can then run office pools in guessing when the casualties of the Iraq civil war will achieve the ten thousand, fifteen thousand, twenty thousand, and on and on and on, benchmarks, 


- Our civil liberties vanquished, 


- Our addiction to oil exploited by corporate America and foreign governments,


- Our degenerative economy reducing our nation into a two-class society (the grotesquely rich and the painfully poor) as our government continues to outsource our jobs and our security.


So, although I have lost virtually all my respect for Hillary Clinton, in the absence of Barack Obama, the alternative may cost us considerably more than respect.  It may very well cost our children their hope.
