THE HILLARY SPEECH: HOW HER TEAM DROPPED THE BALL

I ARRIVED LATE TO THE HILLARY CLINTON EVENT TONITE IN MADISON, AND BECAUSE OF "SECURITY", WEREN'T ALLOWING PEOPLE IN. I WAS A BIT UPSET BY THIS, AND ALTHOUGH I ADORE HILLARY, WAS CONCERNED THAT THIS LACK OF ACCESSIBILITY IS THE REASON SHE ISN'T CONNECTING. IN THIS TIGHT RACE, PEOPLE SHOULD NOT BE DENIED TO SEE HER, OR ANY CANDIDATE. I'VE SEEN HER SEVERAL TIMES ALREADY, BUT IF I WEREN'T AS INFORMED AS I AM, I WOULD HAVE EASILY NOW UNDERSTOOD HOW A VOTE FOR OBAMA IS A VOTE FOR CHANGE.

Accidental Pundit: Oprah at Obama Rally uncut PART 2

Accidental Pundit: Oprah at Obama Rally uncut PART 1

Michelle Obama now vs. Hillary Clinton circa 1992. Similarities are a bit surprising

Is it just me, or are there a number of similarities between Hillary Clinton circa 1992 and Michelle Obama now. Not many people would think there are lot of similarities, but after hearing Michelle speak at the Oprah/Obama/Stevie Wonder rally at UCLA, my opinion was changed. Michelle is fiercely passionate and a defender of her husband, as was Hillary in 1992. Michelle is also a fierce feminist and a bit edgy, so edgy that the Obama campaign has carefully molded her image. Hillary had the same issues when she burst on the scene in 1992. First, they are both Ivy League law grads, Michelle went to Harvard and Princeton (my grad school alma mater) and Hillary went to Wellesley and Yale Law school(my undergrad alma mater). They were both in their mid 40's when their husband ran for President. They are both as articulate and intelligent as their husband. Obama even commented that if he was running against his wife, she would beat him "without much difficulty". Bill Clinton already admits the strengths Hillary has over him. People have even commented that Michelle could run for Senate from Illinois herself if Barack won. They both represented change at a time of political stagnation. When Bill Clinton ran, he was the first Boomer Generation, Obama represents the first Post-Baby Boomer. I would love to know your thoughts.

Hillary Clinton and African-Americans: an interesting road

I wanted to point you to an interesting article from MSNBC that chronicles Hillary journey from an "all white suburb" to civil rights advocate. It's a very telling, moving tale, and is becoming very relevant. You can click here to get the story.
