Between Senator Hillary Rodham Clinton and Senator Barack Obama

I have said it and more intelligent people have written on the same matter.
Senator Barack Obama is a wishful thinker posing and posturing as an intellectual politician and being a mulatto does not mean he would be welcomed in all the countries of the world as an American symbol of a global foreign policy.

Most of those giving thumbs up to the political savvy of Barack Hussein Obama should be in 8th grade.

Others hype the fact that Barack Obama (HLS ’91) led the Harvard Law Review.
If being a professor is the qualification for genius, I wonder what would have happened to all the great inventors who made it possible for us to be online, but who were never professors.
Any diligent student can become a professor.
You may not even be a genius.

For the ignorant ones, Hillary Clinton (YLS ’73) was an Editor of the The Yale Review of Law and Social Action in 1971.

Hillary Rodham arrived at Yale in the fall of 1969 with her reputation preceding her. As one of only 27 women in a class of 235, she would have stood out anyway. But the prior spring, she had delivered her famous commencement speech at Wellesley, where she’d been student-body president, upbraiding the Republican senator Edward Brooke—a speech that made her, in the eyes of the media, a de facto spokeswoman for her generation and landed her picture in Life magazine. “Hillary Rodham was a star,” the film pundit Michael Medved, a law-school classmate of hers, has written. “Everyone knew about her speech and talked in reverential tones about the extraordinary wisdom and eloquence that her address had displayed.”

Unlike Clinton, Obama arrived at law school (fall of 1988) unheralded by the media, unencumbered by preconceptions. But at 27, having spent the previous four years working as a community organizer in inner-city Chicago, having been raised in Hawaii and Indonesia, having traveled to Africa, he was more worldly, more fully baked, than Clinton was at Yale. And although he embraced, as she had, an instrumentalist view of the law—that it was a tool to be employed in the service of social betterment—his goals were less extravagant than hers: helping out the folks on the Windy City’s South Side, as opposed to transfiguring the world.

Now, as a senator, how is Barack Obama performing so far?
How would you rate both Senators Hillary Rodham Clinton and Barack Hussein Obama, from their work ethic and responsibilities?
Who is more diligent and proactive?

Hillary Rodham Clinton has always been daring and fearless in her defence of justice and truth.

She is Godsent to America for the leadership of a new era in the history of the United States of America.

Merry Christmas!
