      We were looking for change then and many decided to roll the dice with Obama over Hillary for that reason.  So far it hasn't panned out which doesn't mean Hillary would've been any better.  

      However, there is no denying that if Candidate Obama had run on the same ideas as President Obama, we would be speaking about President Hillary Clinton.  

      I didn't vote for either one of them in the primary. I voted for Kucinich.  

      I think a primary challenge is a last resort, but I don't feel any politician is entitled to reelection.  

      This is a big country and 300,000,000+ strong.  There is no "one" in this country. Somewhere there is a leader who understands we need fundamental change and that fundamental change cannot just be their election win.  

      We have an education system that's falling apart, a runaway Penatagon and we're broke.  Those kinds of problems need deep fundamental change not incremental change.  

      I believe Obama had that chance and he pissed it away.  He'll get a victory here and there and maybe reelection.  But I believe history will prove him to be just another "what might've been".
