Money wins again and the country loses, big time.
Governor Richardson bows out of the race,because he doesn't have the money to compete with the other three: Edwards, Hillary Clinton and Obama. And we all lose the best candidate in decades to run for the Presidency.
Not only that, but we probably lose the election to the Republicans.
Clinton and Obama are unelectable. Do you honestly think that a woman, or a Black man, could carry enough electoral votes to win? Think about it. It's absolute FOLLY to nominate either of these people. Not if you want to WIN and get the country out of the control of the wacko, far right, ignorant, greedy white men who call themselves Republicans.
If Hillary Clinton or Obama gets the nomination, the Republicans will dance in the streets. They can attack Hillary Clinton wholesale and go on for years doing that, just as they did with her husband. If Obama gets the nomination, they'll just about pee their pants. They won't have to do a thing, but they will probably hassle him endlessly about every little thing. Regardless, he won't win.
I wish that our country were enlightened enough to elect a Black man, to elect a woman. But it isn't, and I doubt it will ever be in my lifetime.
The presidential races are all about money now, not about being qualified. Not caring about your job. It's so typical that the best candidate is unable to keep going.
When Ralph Nader ran (another unelectable guy) the Republicans actually donated to his campaign to keep it going so that independents and Democrats would vote for him instead of a viable candidate.
Richardson was the only candidate who had the experience to do the job as President. Edwards is woefully inexperienced. I'll vote for whichever Democrat gets the nomination, but not because I believe in any of the other candidates. Only to keep the the dogs of war at bay.
This is a very, very sad day for America. Mark my words, unless Edwards comes up, we'll see another four years of Dark Ages and many more years of war.
