Wow, Clinton’s won in New Hampshire! Hooray for Hillary! The race is on again! This despite all the media gush about Obama and the negative press for Hillary.
I admire Obama and admire those who support him. It shows America at its finest, eager for new directions and free from racial prejudice.
But I am an ageing boomer myself and have always been a Bill Clinton fan. I have never been able to understand the animus against Hillary.
Democrats are spoilt for choice this time with a plethora of good candidates. And she is one of them. Will the media give all the candidates a fair coverage, report what each of them has to say? Election coverage should not read like a rock concert report.
I can understand the impulse to praise Obama. It makes one feel good. He has youth, intelligence, charisma, all the great qualities. But Hillary and Edwards and the other candidates are pretty impressive too. Give them a fair hearing.
Even Obama fans are entitled to enjoy the excitement of a close — and not a one-horse — race.
