George Bush-Worst President Ever-is killing time until he has to hand over the keys to Airforce One. Barrack Obama, The Change Candidate, picked an old white guy as VP. And Old White Guy John McCain’s choice of Alaska Governor Sarah Palin is very interesting. While watching a bit of Sarah Palin’s acceptance speech she spent some time talking about her husband-kiddo, we don’t even know who you are yet alone who your husband is.
Obama and McCain are easily the two weakest Presidential Candidates since Bush vs Kerry. I would have liked to have seen Hilliary Clinton running for President and I wonder how many of the people who voted for Obama in the Primaries would like the same thing. McCain’s choice of Sarah Palin for VP was a shocking and brilliant move-the kind of move Obama should have made.
We all love candidates we know absolutely nothing about. All of them are good until they open their mouths and start talking, then we find out that they have real opinions and views and who wants that in The White House?
One of my favorite BritComs is Yes, Minister-in which a good man becomes a Minister and finds that all the power is held by a group of unelected Civil Servants who only care about preserving their own powerbase. Mr Smith Goes To Washington is also based on the general idea that one can’t really make a difference, but at least he can try. Government exists to promote Government and any illusions we have that they want what is best for the country is just that, an illusion. But it is still fun to watch the show.
So why not have the Sarah Palin, Governor of Alaska, as VP? Maybe it is time for some Change. How many votes will Hillary Clinton need to win with a write in campaign?
At least neither of these Candidates could be any worse than George W Bush, could they?
