Barack Obama has had the kitchen sink thrown at him, throwing out his middle name in a negative way, accompanied by a picture of Obama dressed in Somali garb, at the same time being endorsed by Farrakhan -- it's called "Got-Cha" politics, which is the worst kind of politics which only tends to divide and incite fear, it's called divide and conquer and/or "Swift Boating", which in reality is an assisination of character even though it is false.

However, Obama can be of use to America by addressing the need of some to sow divisions and exploit our differences, instead of building on that which unites us, and "The world can use him too, with his reach to the Muslim nations and his middle name making it impossible for the US to walk away from one of the biggest foreign policy blunders in history. A restructuring of this overall policy is due after the demolition of the World Trade Towers.  Some people think it's cool to be cynical. They deride those who show overt respect, admiration, and optimism. Those who still believe they can make a difference. Those who know they have power. This campaign has proven that cruelty is no longer desired as political style in the United States. The people now have a choice. A choice between magnifying the negatives or using the positives.  I will say this. Obama has the potential to be one of the greats, but only if the people participate in molding his leadership. That's the task at hand.  He, himself, invites others to recognize his faults not letting them interfere with the work. You can see how the people's support has molded him already in his quick evolution from weak debating events to the beautiful, strong, elegant, debate he delivered last night.."

We cannot afford to continue to alienate our allies and friends in the Middle East by insinuating that to have the name Hussein means that you are evil or are to be feared.  Do we really want to Convey that?  There are many good and decent people with the name Hussein in the Middle East, some of which have been our allies such as King Jordan Hussein.  We cannot continue to incite hatred and hostility, with the result of no end of wars in sight.  America the world is watching.

Hillary Clinton, a consummate actress, represents  the old-time party politics, the politics of distort, smear, tear and division.   She likes to Fight while Barack likes to Unite.  Through this whole campaign, Camp Clinton has been Denounced for being Karl-Rove Republican like which she now tries to throw off on Camp Obama.  We all know who has engaged in a destructive, divisive and negative campaign.   After 20 debates, and over 4 years, Tim Russert finally got her to come close to apologizing about her 35-year experience Yes vote for the Iraq war.   Mature individuals apologize and take responsibility for their mistakes.  Mature individuals after losing a primary, apologizes to their winning opponent.  America, it is about the Past (fighting, distortion and division and getting nothing really accomplished) or the Future (uniting, goodwill and truth and breaking new ground), that is our Choice!
