Photo Finish: Barack Obama vs. Hillary Clinton

by at . Comments

Their battle for the 2008 Democratic presidential nomination has taken over the news, but we're going back to their college days for this photo finish.

Born in 1947, Hillary Clinton is a product of the baby boom generation through and through... right down to her obligatory hippie phase in the late 1960s.

While he missed out on that part of American history, Barack Obama (born 1961) was still one cool customer when he enrolled at Columbia University.

My, how these youngans have grown up ...

Which do you like better: the Hillary Clinton or Barack Obama of yore?

In Saturday's South Carolina primary, Obama defeated Clinton in a rout that may only be surpassed by Tom Brady and the Patriots in next Sunday's Super Bowl. Obama won 55 percent of the vote to Hillary's 27 percent.

The next big date on the primary calendar for these co-frontrunners is February 5, a.k.a. Super Tuesday, when more than 20 states vote.

. I remember one, in which he was takilng about how the intelligence is manipulated to make us believe the government knows more than it can tell us, and we have to trust it with whatever it's about to do.This excuse was used over and over again, and almost always the intelligence proved to be false.Silber said the decision-making is never one of hard, cold thinking, but one of judgement. In other words, the government does nothing that the People could not do.But the elite in Washington believes the People is not well-informed, and does not deserve to be listened to. Its will can and in fact must be disregarded.Sir, I did not read your article, but your title reminded me of this.
