Something About Obama

Letter to the Editor

The last sentence in your political endorsement jumped out at me. It states, "Likeable as Dudley is, Oregon can't afford to give the governorship to a guy who'll need on-the-job training." In your 2008 presidential endorsement you could have used the same sentence only with three substitutions and you would have been right-on: "Likeable as Obama is, the U.S. can't afford to give the presidency to a guy who'll need on-the-job training."

John, We can't help but agree. Let's see, one guy was a U.S. senator who spent his entire life in public service and ran on a defined platform of ending the U.S. campaign in Iraq while rebuilding our sagging nation at home. The other is a former pro basketball player with no political experience who is running on a non-platform of tax cutting platitudes and hoping his name recognition will carry the day. Yep. They could have been separated at birth.
