While William Jefferson Clinton was in the White House, he had my complete support. In fact, while I was angry with him for his indiscretions with Monica Lewinsky, I was one of his ardent defenders during the impeachment hearings. Mainly because I strongly believed that political dirty tricks were at play and more importantly, I believed his policies and vision for America were ideal.
Then once he left office, I have watched with great admiration as he worked to become an elder statesman within the Democratic Party, America and the world at large. However, his latest assignment as pit bull for Hillary has brought on Clinton fatigue. I just want them both to go away. Seriously! They are both poison and not good for the Democratic Party or America at this point in time.
Thus, I am hoping that after Bill’s behaviour is South Carolina this past week, Democrats will wake up and realise that a vote for Hillary, is a vote for the past, not the future. Furthermore, America really can’t afford another four or eight years with a Clinton in the White House as their strategy of saying and doing anything to win is bound to divide not unite. Plus does America really want a co-Presidency? Try as he might, Bill will be unable to stay on the sidelines and I am sure this will create a great deal of difficulty.
Thus, I hope that in the upcoming primaries, Democrats will take a serious look at Senator Obama and Senator Edwards. Either one is a better choice for the party and America. Either one could win against the Republican nominee in November. Seriously, Hillary (and Bill) are simple too divisive to send back to the White House. It is time for a change.
