Why Obama is my choice

I was wandering around the blogisphere reading comments by people about the Pennsylvania primary election, when I came across one comment response in which the writer spewed on and on about his hatred of Barack Obama and how if Hillary Clinton didn’t get the nomination, he was definitely voting for McCain.

I know if Hillary is not given the presidential nomination, I will definitely vote for McCain. McCain is a “mild” conservative — a moderate and has very little in common with Bush. I will never vote for Obama

He then goes on to tell us that Barack Obama is a liar and can’t be trusted and so on and so forth (without any citations or references). Obviously this person is angry and for some reason feels that it is Obama’s fault. It seems to me, that many of the Hillary supporters (at least on the web) fall into this manic, screeching, hatred hurling category, and very few of their blogs relate to issues. More of them seem to fall into the name calling category instead. There are a few who seem thoughtful and sane, though.

Anyway, all of that is to let you know that MoveOn.org is asking for peoples’ feedback on their 30 second Barack Obama ads. You’re asked to rate the submissions on degree of positiveness, creativity, and overall message. I like Barack Obama because, yes, of the hope and “things can be different” attitude, but what it all boils down to, is that it’s not about him winning, it’s about them winning. They are what this election is about. This is one of my favorite ads.
