I am a great admirer of Hillary and Bill Clinton. An amazing team of politicians that our nation has been fortunate to have had as leaders.
But South Carolina has convinced me that Obama’s time is now.
Some of you may know me as the author of the John Kerry for President 2008 blog. You may also know me as one of the more vocal critics of this Administration and all that has gone wrong in America under this President.
Change is necessary. And Obama means change.
Hillary Clinton has disappointed me and many other Democrats who don’t want to go back to the old-time politics. Where was she tonight when Obama won. Was she gracious and giving a speech in South Carolina congratulating Obama? Or was she in Tennessee pretending to ignore the thrashing she got in South Carolina! And when the Democratic Party under Howard Dean decides to deny Florida participation after they failed to abide by the rules of the game for Primaries, why is Hillary now discussing the importance of the Florida vote?
Obama isn’t perfect.
But Bill Clinton’s desparate use of racial divisions to promote the candidacy of his wife is unacceptable.
We desparately need a leader that can bring us together.
Only Obama can do that. It will be a hard road to the White House, but all good things are worth the effort.
