Re: “Our Presidential Candidates Have Issues

Ed, A blogger called Grassroots Mom, \says that, because she "refused to buy into the hype" about Obama, she researched the legislative activity of both Obama & Clinton in 2007 using Thomas.loc.gov. She says that "an examination of the bills that each of these Senators cared enough about to author and introduce revealed much to me: what they care about, what their priorities are, how they tackle problems. And the list of co-sponsors showed something about how they lead, inspire and work with others. Finally, looking at which bills actually passed is pretty indicative of how effective each would be at getting things done." Her conclusions? "I was blown away as I started going through his [Obama's] record. I've already mentioned his bills on health care and energy. In addition he had introduced bills on Iran, voting, veterans, global warming, campaign finance and lobbyists, Blackwater, global poverty, nuclear proliferation, and education." "Obama is a leader. With bigger majorities in Congress, much of his agenda should sail through. He can inspire this country to change course on so many things, from health care to global warming, where attitudes have to be changed first." What about Clinton, you ask? Well, for example, she compares bills from HRC vs BHO regarding toxic paints on childrens' toys and concludes "Obama's bills risk pissing off the toy industry and the Chinese. Hillary's risks nothing." I want a president who will risk ticking off the industry lobbyists. I want a president who can lead and inspire the majority of Americans and legislators to actually get things done.
