Crocodile Tears?

I dunno. Maybe its just me.

But I have a hard time believing that Hilary Clinton was crying over the fate of the country when questioned about Barak Obama's perceived lead in the US Presidential race. Now if you said she was crying in her beer ... or scotch or whatever ... well, sure, I could believe that. But seriously, crying because it's so hard and the only thing that keeps her going is her passionate belief that it's the right thing to do, because she has to save her country? Yeah, right.

I don't have any direct skin in the game, don't really much care who wins each party's nomination. But it is entertaining to watch. In kind of the same way as a massive car wreck in action would be. Provided you knew that no one was getting that hurt, that is.

hmmm, tends to make me think of "cry me a river" by Justin Timberlake - are the girls a fan of his? anyway, yeah, I have to agree - crocodile tears indeed. Or tears of "oh my god, I'm going to be beaten by a man....and a man of color at that!"

I do hope he wins though. Although I wasn't a fan of the Oprah bandwagon speech, I do think he'd be a great Pres. I was worried she would hurt him more than do any good, only because I can't stand her. But that my personal belief, so please don't hate me for speaking my mind.

All right, that's enought of that. There will be absolutely no mind-speaking around here!

My mind is the only one allowed to express itself around here ... I tried to keep it open once but then just about every damm thing nearly fell out of it!

Hillary is a slick package; she's micro-managed by Clinton ex Machina. There is absolutely nothing sincere about her. She's manipulative and blows in what ever direction is most advantageous for her.

Sorry but Obama lacks the experience, the charisma and the ba!!s to lead this country.

Frankly, I fear for my wallet should any Democrat be elected for 2009. Their social programs will ensure that I work much harder for alot less.

Sorry Michelle - you know me well enough to know that I can never shut my mind up! :-)

As a South American I must say that the US elections, the befores, the durings and the afters are always interesting and always affect us one way or another. I will refrain from offering my opinion just yet, but I will say I agree with Michelle that it is entertaining to watch -even scary sometimes.
