GUEST,Chicken Charlie BS: Quotes that make me wonder... (6) RE: BS: Quotes that make me wonder... 24 Mar 08


IMO, there is another possibility, i.e., that Clinton was not complaining about the quality of the candidates, but about the relevance, or lack thereof, of the issues that become the focus of campaigns. See, the "actually" emphasis comes in on people asking the right questions, not on whether the candidates love their country.

So in attempt to demonstrate this nonpartisanly, it has honestly occurred to me to ask:

Re. McCain--being a POW is a bad gig, but why does it qualify someone to be Prexy? Wouldn't a degree in economics be more helpful?

Re. Hillary Clinton--why is having a husband who could balance a budget and get us out of a losing game in Somalia outweighed by the fact that Monica Lewinski couldn't keep her mouth shut about not being able to keep her mouth shut?

Re. Sen. Obama--why is who baptized your kids on a par with what you would do about our troops in Iraq?

I don't understand Mr. Clinton to be saying that Senators Obama and McCain don't love their country, any more than I understood Sen. Clinton to mean that Martin Luther King was zero because LBJ's signature was on the Civil Rights Act.
