"I think it is fair to say that I believe I can bring the country together more effectively than she can," Obama said. "I will add, by the way, that is not entirely a problem of her making. Some of those battles in the '90s that she went through were the result of some pretty unfair attacks on the Clintons. But that history exists, and so, yes, I believe I can bring the country together in a way she cannot do. If I didn't believe that, I wouldn't be running."
Then again, it's not the toughest comparison out there...
But "Presidential Candidate" Obama goes on to say:
"Senator Clinton apparently disagrees with me on this issue of preconditions," he said. "I think she's wrong on that because if we continue to set preconditions for discussions that are hostile to us, I think that's what loses the PR battle worldwide because it implies the United States is the superior power and other states have to give in to our demands before we even deign to meet with them. And that reinforces the sense of the arrogance of U.S. power around the world, which is a source of great damage -- and makes us less safe."
Dear, dear Senator... do you not yet realize that this is the real world, and it's not governed by tracking polls, public relations ratings, or liberal classroom case studies? Real world, real people, real power. Maybe you'll understand this some day when you're able to take off the political diapers you're still wearing.
Keep America Beautiful. Keep America Strong.
