Dissing Opponents

Senator Obama knows politics is dirty and likes it not one bit. Nor does Michelle. When Obama started his campaign he did so without dissing opponents. He endeavored to run a clean campaign.

Early on, I was learning how to be different when dealing with haters...rather, just listen, ignore the hateful words, stay positive and offer a well thought out rebuttal. No dissing opponents or sinking to the level of dirty politics that was typical of other candidates supporters.

Of course, people mistake kindness for weakness and Obama won respect from You Tubers. In their words he smacked down Hillary. Obama had expressed respect and admiration for Ms. Clinton; she started with the stare and name calling.

Just happened to be reading a new biography about Ralph Ellison (book review) when I saw Clinton use the stare on Obama. Of course, her stare may not have been the stare, but in my mind's eye, it was. I did not approve of Clinton, due to her support of killing innocent women and children in Iraq; Obama's opposition to that illegal war was one of the things that attracted me to him as a candidate. Seeing that stare, has me thinking that Hillary is very much, 'white' Southern bigoted lady.

Females are supposed to have empathy. Obama has that quality that she lacks.

When I started this blog, I did wish to avoid dirty politics and dissing opponents. Better to point out the positive aspects of the candidate one supports to garner support, than to be like everyone else. It hurts my heart to hear females rallying 'round Hillary. They are as heartless as she is in regards to our sisters overseas.

How would you feel if that was your child whose body parts were blown to pieces? Might induce a powerful hatred of everything US of A if you were that Iraqi mother. Hillary did not listen to those women's pleas, nor the pleas of mothers, sisters, daughters, wives of "our troops".

Obama and Kucinich would make a good team for all those who desire an end to "dumb wars".
