Almost four years ago a very powerful political commercial came into our homes:
It shows people asleep in bed. It is dark. The phone rings.
“It is 3:00 am, who do you want answering the emergency?”
It was a commercial comparing Democratic candidates Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton. The concept was to outline who really had the experience to handle emergencies that would pop up in the middle of the night.
Given the almost three years of watching Pres Obama, my mind keeps going back to that commercial. He has been called the Teleprompter in Chief, the President’s Press Adviser, Jimm Carter junior, etc. Rarely has anyone commended him on his leadership abilities. In fact, most Americans rate him low. During both the Obamacare and Debt ceiling issues (that dragged on forever), people in Washington DC and around the country wondered where he was, or why he never submitted a useable plan.
Where do you think our country would be right now had we elected Hillary Clinton instead? As both Senator and Secretary of State, I think she’s handled herself well (and I’m not a Democrat). Perhaps the Democrats would be smart to give themselves another chance at putting her into the top spot.
What do you think?
