Bill and Hillary Clinton are quickly finding out that Barack Obama will not go away. They can kick, scream, throw dirt, throw a fit and make up stuff about Barack Obama, but every time they try to discredit this talented, intelligent and savvy young man, he fights back. He has “experience” with street toughness. He had to. Any one that has “experienced” Altgeld Gardens, where Obama worked as a community organizer, knows you must be tough and savvy. What makes Obama unique is that he is not only tough, but sensitive and compassionate. Indeed, a rare combination.
These are great qualities for the next President of the United States.
To paraphrase a line from the movie, The Ghostbusters, “Obama ain’t afraid of no Clintons.”
Barack Obama has learned his lessons well. The first time the Clintons “kicked, screamed, threw dirt and threw a fit” was in March of 2000 when then President Clinton drove the final nail into the Obama campaign in his race against Congressman Bobby Rush. Clinton blasted commercials non-stop for a week in praising his friend, Congressman Rush. Obama was not in a position to fight back and defend himself.
But (another movie analogy) like Rocky, came back at Apollo Creed (Clinton) with fists flying. Yes, Rocky (Obama) lost to Apollo (Clinton) the first time, but Rocky learned and trained and got mentally ready to take on the mighty Creed. And then Rocky defeated the mighty Creed.
And then Obama defeated the mighty…………..
You can almost hear the music from Rocky. John Presta.
