Clinton Versus Obama: Old Versus New?

By John W. Lillpop

A truly startling photograph emerged from the campaign trail in California over the weekend. It pictured Oprah Winfrey, Maria Shriver, and Caroline Kennedy bonding in support of Barack Obama for president.

Three famous ultra-liberal women, in effect, snubbing one of their own, Hillary Rodham Clinton, in order to embrace the emergence of a black Camelot!

With his youthful charisma, warmth, and likable demeanor, Barack Obama seems to be the perfect antidote to the shrill woman whose disapproval numbers are near 50 percent. Winfrey, Kennedy, and Shriver reflect the fact that some Democrats really understand that Clinton may in fact be unelectable.

Obama is a young, trustworthy, and likable chap whom one would feel very comfortable with in one's own home, sitting around the dinner table discussing politics, the cost of gasoline, the Super Bowl, or whatever. He seems to put people at ease and is a good listener.

On the other hand, Hillary seems to be an old, cold and calculating opportunist who is more interested in making history as the first female president than she is in changing and saving America. Not the kind of person one would like to chit-chat with over a cup of coffee and a dinner roll.

Rather than listening to the people, Hillary seems obsessed with what her daily tracking polls are saying. She seems better suited for delivering hysterical rhetoric about a "Vast Right Wing Conspiracy" than connecting with people.

Hillary is an "Old School" politician who is part of the problem, rather than part of the solution. Obama is definitely a "New School" politico, one who brings fresh ideas and hope to the problems facing America in 2008.

Mind you, Clinton and Obama are both withering socialist fascists; either one in the White House would likely spell the end of the American Dream.

Still, Oprah Winfrey, Maria Shriver, and Caroline Kennedy are among the millions of liberals who understand that Hillary cannot win the general election.
