And the beat goes on …

  1. Admittedly, I’m not a highly political person but your blog makes me interested. I do not know all of the ins-and-outs for sure; however, I do know WHO I do not like. At WC’s blog, she pointed out to me long ago that what turns me off to politics (all the games and distractions) is EXACTLY why these politicians are pulling stunts; to make me look the other way (in disgust) – then they can do whatever the heck they want – it turned me off so I tuned out. After reading what she said to me, I’ve been watching more closely. I like to come here and see your take on things, you are a very insightful woman! Thanks!
    Being retired gives me plenty of time to watch the news, I’m afraid. But this really is the most fascinating campaign I can remember since the ’60s. I had pretty much tuned out the political scene too, until Obama started showing signs of being a real contender. So exciting to see Hillary’s “inevitability” being challenged. (I don’t know how insightful I am, but I can always conjure up an opinion or two. 🙂 )

  2. You said that, in a candidate to high office, his personal integrity would be of prime importance to you.

    Now you thought that Hillary was “a sore loser”. Should she have shown a vivid happy surprise at her o_pponent’s success and her own failure?

    No, of course not. But it is customary in American politics to congratulate or at least acknowledge your opponent’s victory, while conceding your own defeat. To completely ignore that a contest even occurred is unusual.

... and that's my two cents
