And none of them like Hillary.

Sinbad, who went on a USO trip to Bosnia with Hill in '96:

I think the only ‘red-phone’ moment was: ‘Do we eat here or at the next place?

Casey Knowles, the girl from Hillary's red phone ad, is now of voting age and a big Obama supporter.

What I don't like about the ad is its fear-mongering. I think it's a cheap hit to take. I really prefer Obama's message of looking forward to a bright future.

Also Hillary's claim of playing a part in the Northern Ireland peace process has come under fire from David Trimble, who received a Nobel Peace Prize for his work in brokering the peace deal.

Hillary Clinton had no direct role in bringing peace to Northern Ireland and is a wee bit silly for exaggerating the part she played. I don’t know there was much she did apart from accompanying Bill going around. Her recent statements about being deeply involved were merely "the sort of thing people put in their canvassing leaflets" during elections. She visited when things were happening, saw what was going on, she can certainly say it was part of her experience. I don’t want to rain on the thing for her but being a cheerleader for something is slightly different from being a principal player.

Ah yes, more weighty boilerplate from a BO supporter.

Yes, because its much better to elect a candidate based on the irrational and purposely cultivated fear that if you don't, your children will die. :rolleyes:

I prefer the partly cloudy future of a John McCain administration to be honest.

She hates the message in the ad...but not enough to turn the work down or accept the check. She'll make a fine liberal.

It was stock footage. She didn't have a say in the ad.

Well, there is the lefty's continual threat of having grandma eating dog food over the whole Social Security thing; anyway I know you're talking about this specific deal.

For sure. I'm not into any of that type of fear mongering.

When I hear people say that its stupid to like Barack because he inspires and speaks of a bright future, I always think, well who should they be listening to? The other person is simply on the opposite end of the spectrum, preaching fear. To me, that's not better and no more substantive than Obama's message. Hers is just as empty, mindless, and absurd as people accuse Obama of being. So to me, I think if he inspires you, then that's great. If he doesn't, fine. But I see no reason to constantly rag on the people who are inspired by him and want to believe in him. Their reasons for liking him are no less authentic than any other political follower. Obama has as much promise of delivering on his message as Hillary has on delivering her message (which seems to be that if you don't elect her, the guy in the White House won't be able to figure out what part of the phone to listen to and what part to speak into).
