    Like most die-hard dems, I have been waiting for the end of the current administration since it began. Until Sen. Obama announced his run for the presidency, I had always thought, just assumed really that Hillary would run and I would vote for her. When Barack Obama entered the picture that all changed. I must admit, I just never thought he would run. I was elated at his decision to do so.. I think Sen. Clinton just doesn't get it... YES, she has experience.. and YES, I think most dems appreciate her efforts...but we know what she brings to the table. We know how the republicans detest her... What we want is change! We don't want an administration that is so hated by the other party that it turns into a political blood bath! I voted for Pres. Clinton twice...and thought he was a great president...and I believe that what the Repbulicans tried to do to him was horrible... She just doesn't get it...we're sick of the bickering...sick of the negativity... Come on...Sen Obama is perfectly qualified..he's a Harvard Law grad...has a lot of expereience on the GROUND in communities in need..he understands people.. That seems to be what Hillary forgets...the common people. It's as if she feels somehow entitled to be the next president! Her sense of entitlement is the very thing that is turning off voters. She just can't seem to get it...her experience also brings with it a ton of negativity and party bashing. We're tired of it. She has taken on a very paternalistic demeanor with American voters... We don't need her to tell us what we want... She needs to listen to the message. To belittle Sen Obama for having hope is a slap in the face to the everyday voter.. Hope afterall, is the last thing that dies in people. If we can't hope then we have nothing.. She just doesn't get it...we KNOW about her experience...and we know what comes with it... No thanks, Hillary...we'll roll the dice on Barack.. It's time for a new day...
