It is 2008: time once again for the great American presidential debates. Well, at least time for their intensity levels to rise, and time for every word to be scrutinized. The young voter is being targeted more than ever this election season. Have you personally researched the current issues? Or are you parroting everyone else’s talking points? Are you afraid of being challenged or bringing the challenge? The presidential elections are no joke, and every American person should want to know the character of the person they are voting for and the policies that person represents. Prominent pundits, pastors, governors, representatives and senators race around the nation promoting the Democratic or Republican candidate of their choice. All ears and eyes are open, as Americans look to their leaders to prove how they will lead.
Thursday, Aug. 21, 2008, former First Lady and presidential candidate, Sen. Hillary Clinton (D-N.Y.) spoke at Florida Atlantic University in Boca Raton. Her goal was to unite Democratic voters and get them to support Barack Hussein Obama in his race for the presidency. Among other things, she explained to her audience that in her 40 years of political involvement there have been 10 presidential elections and only three of those 10 elections have been in favor of the Democratic Party. Of those three, two belonged to her husband, Bill Clinton. She went on to express the urgency of electing Barack Hussein Obama as president this fall, despite the many differences she may have with him. Anything but a Republican, and in this case, anything but John McCain. The crowd was digging it, her South Florida Democrats were ready to act on command. Upon reaching this point of connection with her audience, Sen. Clinton presumptuously bellowed from her podium, “republicans should hold a press conference, apologize to the country for what they have put us through and then decide they are not going to run.” The crowd roared with applause, and she was pleased.
