  •  I get tired of that talking point (0+ / 0-)

    I like your post and it certainly is about the first thing to actually make me think critically about Clinton in awhile - but what makes you think Obama will clean house?  Or that he'll have the power to do so?  That's placing hope in a politician not to be a politician.  And even if he tries, what that he'll succeed?  The 'old guard' in some cases goes back to Hawaii's statehood.

    •  With Obama we have a chance (0+ / 0-)

      With Clinton? No chance

      And this cannot be about choosing a leftie or liberal version of the Decider-er.

      We need to get involved and stay involved at the Congressional level no matter who is elected POTUS and Obama offers rhetoric in support of that.

      •  assumption (0+ / 0-)

        not even based on polling.  which, this far out can go either way.  but otherwise, you're just grasping at straws - i.e., making up a conclusion based on nothing but personal feeling.

        •  And the reverse is true, why? (0+ / 0-)

          •  reverse of what? (0+ / 0-)

            the assumptions, polling?  all I'm saying is that there is nothing evidentiary to back up that assertion.  nothing.  but plenty of people act like the conclusion of an election between candidates not yet chosen that hasn't occurred is already established.

            not to say I don't think that Obama has been a better candidate (at least for the last two months), I just also think that Clinton can win as well.
