Funny Cheney

Vice President, Dick Cheney may be in treatment for an irregular heartbeat. But he is still one tough guy.

Deadlier moves than those of Chuck Norris, from what I hear.

The Politician’s New Clothes

I had written earlier that I had begun to see nuances of better leadership in Hillary Clinton. What was I thinking?? According to the Drudge report, stressed Clinton staffers circulated a photo over the weekend in order to ‘smear’ Obama’s campaign.

The Clintonistas were probably addressing the people who still think that Obama is Muslim and hoped that this photo will give a glimpse of his ‘Muslimness’.

There is nothing wrong with Obama posing for such a photo. Politicians do that all the time. They are often seen donning the local garbs of the places they visit. George Bush seems quite fond of it himself-

US President George W. Bush (R) chats with Chinese President Hu Jintao (C) and Russian President Vladimir Putin (C) at the end of the Asian-Pacific leaders meeting in Hanoi, 19 November 2006. All 21 Asia-Pacific leaders wore dresses. But only the three women, pretty in pink, had the sartorial nerve to don the hats. Each year, the summit of the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) forum provides world leaders with an opportunity to strut their stuff in the traditional garb of the host country for the so-called “family photo”.

Hillary Clinton was seen wearing a  traditional Vietnamese hat along with daughter Chelsea on their visit to the country in 2000.

Even though the Clinton camp now seems desperate to try these dirty tactics they are a part of a good day’s work on the political battleground.

What I find absurd is how the media always links Obama to Islam and calls him a Muslim as if it were some sort of name-calling. As if being considered Muslim is a bad thing. As if having a middle name Hussein automatically links one to the infamous ousted Iraqi dictator. So, it is not a big deal if the future President of the United States had drug issues but it is outrageous if he had any kind of Islamic roots.

A Moment Of Crisis

It took some time to come at this. Initially our hearts went out to the eloquent speaker from Illinois who swept us away with his promise of change.

I admit, I wanted to support the underdog with exceptional oratory skills. His policies made a lot of  sense and he was definitely the most likable candidate in the race.

Hillary wasn’t our first choice. But after reconsideration Clinton seems to be a stronger and better leader.

I watched the Texas debate last night. Not because I wanted to hear what I’ve already heard over and over again about Obama and Hillary’s agenda. I watched it to really watch the candidates themselves. That seemed to be my short moment of crisis when my already inclined support bent more towards Hillary Clinton.

Hillary will make a better head and a better administator . She has more experience and is more practical in her approach towards issues. We all know Obama’s charm and talents because he makes sure we notice them. But that is not enough to be head of government. His win seems more like playing with a wild card.

Hillary is tough and full of conviction. Yesterday she showed she can smile in her moment(s) of crisis.  

Popularity By Belligerence: Presidential Race 2008

Missing out on your soaps and reality shows? Well, just tune into the 2008 Presidential Campaign Trail. The Monday night CNN Democratic presidential debate from Myrtle Beach set a record. According to the Associated Press, it was the most-watched debate ever in cable news.
South Carolina Democratic Debate Heats Up With Fiery Clinton, Obama Exchange

It started to get mean at the very onset. It went on with Hillary and Obama trading barbs over their policies, records (even spouses!) and Edwards saying that their sqaubbling won’t get any child health care.

Votes or no votes, these debates get a way lot of hits.

  •  An estimated 4.9 million people watched Monday’s show from South Carolina

 The acrimonios Myrtle Beach debate was just a warm up to what we are going to witness in the following months. Many more sharp rhetorics are to be exchanged and allegations yet to be delivered, stay tuned!
