There's no crying in politics!

Apparently there is and it worked out smashingly for the former First Lady. Of course I am addressing her quivering voice moment last week before the New Hampshire primary. It's a little old but I am still pissed about it and let's face it, she won the primary because of it.
Think I'm lying, take a look. She looks so beat down and tired and someone asked her a question and I guess she couldn't take it anymore. OK, I hope you picked up just a hint of sarcasm in that last statement.

That crap was calculated or miscalculated I should say. I don't know why she thought crying would solve her problems. To be completely honest with you, I think she played right into the hands of all her naysayers.
These folks have long said that a woman can't make it in the White House. That the stress of it all coupled with PMS will make for quick, rash decisions and I personally think that she's set us back a few decades with all this fake boo-hooing nonsense.
Yea that's right, I said fake! Even if it is not fake she still needs to get herself together because if she can't handle the stress of the campaign, how is she going to handle the stress of running the country? I think she just lost herself the election.
And speaking of politics, why won't you guys leave Tavis Smiley alone for his comments about Barack Obama? I applaud Mr. Smiley for stepping up to say what so many other folks are thinking.
Take a look.
The man is simply saying 'do your research before you vote Obama in.' I don't think there's anything wrong with that. I do think it is wrong to vote for somebody based on what they look like, what their gender is and who they are connected to. I'm not saying Obama is the wrong candidate, I'm not saying he is the right one, I am saying that he needs to be researched.
Personally, I don't trust anyone who WANTS to be the president. That's the hardest job in the world and it doesn't pay much so he or she would have to be in it for the perks. It just kind of makes me wonder, what perks are they in it for?

First off, love your blog.. Got some really good discussions going on up in here.. I think all politicians(moreso presidential canidates) cry. Like you said its the most diffucult and underpaid job out there.. when a college B-ball coach can make more than the president -thats stress. I also think that this is a very motional campign for whats at stake here. Everybody thinking that if he wanted to Bush could put us in twice a WORLD of hurt in his last year than he 's done in his two terms. I think for some(canidates) Its saving the world in mind. Socially, economically, enviormentally speaking. And they sense that pressure. I would say idont like the way Hilary is carrying about her campaign- it discredits her for all the good as a politician she's done. ALL politicaians are corrupt,all. But its the one's who are currupt for the people are the ones I respect.. So I can see how can conclude shes fake.. Blows at a visionary like Barrack is low. And u see he's all but trying to lash out at opposition.. Great post.. I'll look for more upcoming on this from u.

With that said Barack in 08!!! peacenluv -Q

I'm glad someone shares my sentiment about politicians. That's one of the major issues I have with Mike Huckabee. That man is a minister and a politician and I don't think the two match.
That's like eating a peanut butter sandwich without jelly. You can do it but it doesn't make sense.
I don't listen to Tavis' radio show. But he has been getting on my good nerve lately.
I've been to quite a few of his speaking engagements, most recently the Talented Tenth Tour and he does a great job of getting people riled up and ready to make changes. But he had no solutions. It's like he wants us to do something without a clear plan of action.
He is a great motivator. In fact, I think he should be a motivational speaker. I just wish he was more of an organizer of the people. Hell, I wish I was an organizer of the people.
Let's just hope that if Barack is elected that he has a clear plan of action and some idea of how we can all get in on making changes.
