Sound Advice

I have to admit, I really wasn't a fan of Alec Baldwin until 30 Rock. But his portrayal of the slick Jack Donaghy has won me over. In this clip we see his unique spin on therapy.

But unlike the Republican that he portrays, in reality he's a bit more liberal. His recent piece on Obama vs. Clinton: What Tips the Scales would certainly make "Jack" uncomfortable...
Watching some Democrats kick around Mrs. Clinton has grown into a sad spectacle.

Hillary Clinton would make a fine president and I think all reasonable people know that. She would make a better president, offering more constructive policies protecting more Americans, than McCain could ever hope to. Her problem is that Americans, in any given election cycle, can become inflamed with a true passion for change that can only exist in a country like ours. She does not represent that change as well as Mr. Obama does. In spite of her superior capabilities in many areas, Obama would still move into the White House with more foreign policy experience than George Bush had when Bush and his brother stole the election in 2000.

Americans can put up with a lot. After these past eight years, they have proven that they can put up with more than anyone ever imagined. However, that cannot hold forever.

What Mrs. Clinton has that Mr. Obama does not have, Mr. Obama can get. What Mr. Obama has that Mrs. Clinton does not have, she can never get.

Which one is the best hope at defeating McCain, who sounds more like a Bush brother with every passing day?

I have been meaning to watch 30 Rock. I'm gonna have to go for it now.
It is interesting to me how many dems have struggled w/the question of Obama/Hillary. I like seeing everyones thought process.

At another point in time, Hillary may have been a good choice. Even now, as Alec points out, she remains the lesser of two evils in a McCain v. Clinton showdown. Ironically, I'd expect her to do poorly in such a match-up due to the likelihood of an "anti-Clinton" mobilization by the conservative wing. Amazing to see how quickly they circled the wagons around McCain after the NYT flap, when before that they could barely give him the time of day!

My only reservation about Obama is that expectations are far too high, leading to a Jimmy Carter type disappointment if elected. But given the magnitude of the problems we face, I'll take that chance over the "Republican-lite" brand that Hilary promises.
