Don't get me wrong, I am not saying that Senator Hillary Clinton isn't a smart woman. She is obviously smart in the ways of politics, yet there is a devious quality to her intelligence that leaves me less impressed and more skeptical of her motives. Why did she insist on saying over and over again that she landed in Bosnia under sniper fire when it was just a matter of time until the video surfaced that disproved her story and made her look foolish? Why does she surround herself with political operatives who have consistently given her bad advice? These questions worry me and they do factor into my decision as to whom I will select as the commander-in-chief.
This just confirms to me that the most important criterion for selecting the next president should be intelligence. Bill Clinton had it in spades and that was obvious. Barack Obama has a great and abundant, cool and collected mind and that is impressive, and I believe it should matter more than all the other criteria that we consider when choosing a leader who will face such daunting challenges, disasters, corruption and downright messes that will be the legacy of the current administration. More fuel for Barack's fire, I'm ready to be called an Obamaniac, I've made up my mind and I hope that the outcome is as I want it to be. Obama rocks :D
