I'd Rather Return Him and Exchange for Hilary

Harmony and I had a discussion last week that if we, knowing what we know now, could go back and choose between the two Democrats who had run for president, we would both overwhelmingly choose Hillary. That's a pretty bold statement for this blog, considering that back in the day, the blog header used to say something about running for the hills if Hillary were ever elected president.

According to the LA Times, a good number of Americans agree with our sentiment.

I'm sure much of this is a grass-is-greener-on-the-other-side effect. And I would most probably disagree with a lot of Hillary's policies. But Harmony and I both assessed that she would probably be much tougher on foreign policy than Our-Great-Leader-Comrade-Barack-Hussein-Obama-Hope-Be-Upon-Him. Perhaps this would be because she might have some sort of chip on her shoulder which makes her think "I'm a woman, I have to prove that I am tough too." I have nothing to back up that statement, it's just my opinion. From what I read, Bill Clinton was a very poll-driven president and did what he needed to do in order to make the majority of the voter population happy. What's to say that Hillary wouldn't be a pragmatic liberal president like Bill? (as opposed to an ideologue liberal like Our-Great-Leader-Comrade-Barack-Hussein-Obama-Hope-Be-Upon-Him)

But instead we have Our-Great-Leader-Comrade-Barack-Hussein-Obama-Hope-Be-Upon-Him who conducts foreign policy like we live in a Care Bear Kingdom of Caring. Wait, that's not entirely accurate. At least Care Bears had directed energy weapons embedded in their soft tummies and could blast their enemies with a gigantic laser blast, albeit one that is a "ray of love and good cheer which could bring care and joy into the target's heart." (according to Wikipedia)

    On the other hand, I doubt there would be so much conservative energy during or after a Hillary presidency, and the nation would have likely just continued to drift left. If we're frogs in a pot, Hillary might have inched the heat up so little most people didn't notice it. Obama dropped us in boiling water.

    La, let's wait until after the November elections to determine that. I'm still skeptical that there will be enough of a change in power to do us much good.
