Today's Cartoon: Hillary Clinton Enters 2008 Presidential Race

I wonder how much of the money that gets raised for Hillary Clinton presidential campaign will be donated by Republicans, eager to have her run because she is probably the easiest Democratic candidate for them to defeat.

Immediately following the 2004 elections, the American news media began championing Hillary Clinton as the Democrats next candidate for President of the United States. In fact, it seems that Ms. Clinton's only support has been coming from the mainstream press; however, since they are the ones who control the "opinion polls", they provide her the only support she really needs.

I think Americans would be best served to look past distractive issues like race and gender and focus more squarely on the political background of the candidate. In Washington the last 20 years have been dominated by just two political families: Bush and Clinton. After eight years of the Bush Administration the American people seem eager for a "new direction", but as to whether or not that means electing a first female president is yet to be determined; especially when that woman is Hillary Clinton. You see, even if Ms. Clinton is elected the first female president of the United States, the balance of power in Washington would continue to shift back and forth between just two families (for nearer to 30 years).

I don't know but somehow I get the impression that when most American say they want "change", what they really mean is new individuals, new ideas and new solutions; not merely a "sex-change" operation.
