The Ultimate Presidential Minority Showdown

Shortly after Barack Obama announced his plans for a Presidential exploratory committee, Hillary Clinton did the same. Let’s compare statements from their announcements.

Obama says –

…before I committed myself and my family to this race, I wanted to be sure that this was right for us and, more importantly, right for the country.

Hillary says –

I’m not just starting a campaign though, I’m beginning a conversation, with you, with America.

Obama says –

Politics has become so bitter and partisan, so gummed up by money and influence, that we can’t tackle the big problems that demand solutions. And that’s what we have to change first.

Hillary says –

After 6 years of George Bush, it is time to renew the promise of America.

Obama says –

Years ago, as a community organizer in Chicago, I learned that meaningful change always begins at the grassroots, and that engaged citizens working together can accomplish extraordinary things.

Hillay says –

I grew up in a middle-class family in the middle of America, and we believed in that promise…I still do. I spent my entire life trying to make good on it, whether it was fighting for Women’s basic rights or children’s basic healthcare.

Obama says –

I look forward to continuing our conversation in the weeks and months to come.

Hillary says –

Let the conversation begin!…Let’s talk, let’s chat! Let’s have a dialogue about your ideas and mine.

To sum it up: Obama says: “I’m cutting the bullshit. You don’t want to make decisions, you want someone to tell you the best decision and help you follow it.”

Hillary says: “I’m gonna break into your house at night and have a conversation with you in your living room about ideas, ’cause I really don’t have many of my own.”

  1. She only wants to chat.

    Politicians like to talk about having a dialogue about important issues. How they do this I’m not sure. I guess that means going on Bill O’Reilly’s show to get shouted at. I think she’s already done this, or is about to.

  2. I think I’ll write Hillary a letter and see if I get an honest response. She talks so much about wanting to talk to me – maybe I should take her up on it.
