  •  Both sides overreaching (8+ / 0-)

    HRC overreached in overestimating her role in Northern Ireland and Kosovo. She did what first ladies do and with perhaps more enthusiasm for policy related work. Good for her and Kudos. But the borders in Macedonia were open and her role in Northern Ireland, while important, was minimal compared to what others did. So saying I helped bring peace to Northern Ireland is a stretch.

    On the other hand, you Obama supporters (as am I) must spew this baking cookies crap and you look silly and childish. She was a very involved first lady and very involved in substantive issues as first lady.

    All that said, I choose Obama because the 35 year argument is flawed - vote McCain then who has even more "experience." May the oldest candidate win! And can I take back my vote for Bill since he had not crossed the Commander in Chief threshold.

    •  This is SO on target and perfect (4+ / 0-)

      in every way. Thank you!  I wish I could rec you, but I lost my ability to rec comments months ago and I don't think those jerks are ever going to give it back.  And mind, you, I lost it mainly because I would uprate reasonable people like you who would get trolled in candidate diaries.

      Anyway, thank you for saying this.  I really wish people would stuff a sock in the baking cookies bullshit.  It is so juvenile and makes me embarrassed to have to say I support Obama  and, oh yeah, so do these jerks over here who post pictures of the Wicked Witch of the East and make cracks about baking cookies.

        time you did, so after a month of so, I made contact with someone from the tech department of Kos, and I explained myself, and he gave me back my ratings ability, so I advise you to contact them, and explain yourself, and the guy, I forget his name, should be able to give it back to you.

        Barack (who's sane!) Obama

    •  I don't think many Obama supporters are (0+ / 0-)

      being serious with their baked cookies and Sinbad talk.  They are making a joke of her exaggerations.  I can't stand her and I'll admit she could use her experiences for good and it would help her.  Over reaching and making it sound like she saved the world is what is laughable.  The whole platform she's running out on is ridiculous.
