I can’t help but like Barack Obama.  When I first heard his incendiary performance at the 2004 Democratic convention, like everyone else who heard that eloquent and powerful speech, I was blown away.  I thought, this man should be president. 

Conversely, I feel that Hillary Clinton should not be president.  Celebrities (and make no mistake, she has been a public figure so long that this is how we should consider her) often live in such a rarefied atmosphere that they lose a great deal of their humanity.  I think this sums up what’s happened to Clinton.  Apparently, when her campaign was dealt the blow of losing the Iowa primary, she had some sort of epiphany.  She had to “find her own voice.”  Now she claims to have found it.  She repeats this message ad nauseum.  This, clearly, is the ridiculous strategy of someone who believes the public is easily fooled.  It is the act of somebody trying to impersonate a human being.  Hillary Clinton belongs to one of the most powerful and well-oiled political machines in the entire history of politics.  Such people do not embark on campaigns to “find themselves.”  There is very little that’s real about this woman.  I wish the potential “first female president” could have been a real person, but alas no.

Bush, Cheney, Rumsfeld et al obviously lost their humanity decades ago, but for slightly different reasons.  At some point in their lives, they decided that power and profit should come before everything else.  This is why all three of them find it perfectly acceptable to perpetrate human suffering on a massive scale for the sake of lining their own pockets.  If you don’t want to take my word for this, just read Naomi Klein’s extraordinarily thorough and well-researched The Shock Doctrine

It is sad that American politics overshadow our own so often… but right now, it is hard to see how it could be any other way.  The stakes get higher with every defeat of the left.  I will concede that this 2008 presidential is a biggie… and reassert my conviction that Obama is the only person who can take on the Republican machine and deliver real change.

Here in Canada, we also desperately need change.  We’ve got an evil leader of our own.  He’s called Stephen Harper.  This is a man so utterly out of touch with humanity that he required the help of consultants to teach him how to smile.  Have you seen Stephen Harper on TV lately?  He’s got a great smile!

Remember, that is a textbook smile.  He practiced that.  He practiced for days and days and days.  Amazing how much an image-makeover can change one’s fortunes!  But some of us are not fooled…
