Hillary Clinton: choice of an old school generation

Don’t expect the disenfranchised voters to come out in droves in November if Hillary Clinton is the Democratic nominee- or even if she is some part of some borked split ticket with Obama.

Look to the things the endorsers of Hillary say:

Obama, Clinton pick up endorsements
Hall said he decided to endorse Clinton months ago in part because the Clintons “have been friends of mine and have been very good to me over the years.”

The Clinton campaign announced Hall’s endorsement as part of some 100 backers from the state, their “Ohio Leadership Council.”

The list included Montgomery County Commissioner Judy Dodge, former county Democratic Party Chairman Dennis Lieberman, and established backers Rep. Stephanie Tubbs Jones, D-Cleveland, Gov. Strickland and former U.S. Sen. John Glenn.

“Friends of mine and have been very good to me over the years”- not a peep about a new vision, moving forward, hope, progress or change. Hillary Clinton is the establishment, Obama is the movement.

The word change is bandied around like the “Orgasmatron” in Woodie Allen’s classic  tale of the future “Sleeper” but, in reality, change only comes when you are willing to cut-ties to old ways of doing things.

Just visit an Obama grassroots organizing meeting and compare it to a Hillary meeting. It’s like the difference between a wedding and a funeral to me.

We don’t need another country club leader while we’re fighting to save our homes, our jobs and waiting for health care that we can afford. Look at that list of names backing Clinton- and show me one who hasn’t made a career out of government service. Obama is the candidate of the people- and 2008 is the year the people will take back their government.
