Bill And Hilary Clinton Do Not Agree on Free Trade?

Bill Clinton is a supporter of free trade, but his wife and Presidential hopeful Hillary Clinton opposes it. In an attepmt to clear the air as the Pennsylvania primary approaches, Hillary stated that she and her husband has differences just like any other married couple. To defend her stance against free trade with Colombia, Hillary says, “The Colombia free trade deal, in my view, is not appropriate because of the history of suppression and targeted killings of labor organizers in Colombia. There is an argument that there has been some improvement and change by the Colombian government but it is not enough for me,”

This whole Colombia trade pact thing might just be confusing to the average guy watching TV or listening to it on the radio. Hillary’s husband who is former President Clinton supports the pact and according to the Associated Press made some $800000, from Gold Services International which is a developmental group based in the Colombian capital of Bogota which also supports the pact none the less. Then a few days ago one of Hillary’s senior advisors on her campaign was let go for meeting with Colombian officials. We don’t know who is on which side here. Will Hillary also fire her husband Bill Clinton for supporting this pact with the Colombians?.

 

Hillary Clinton’s Big Comeback, The Democratic Race Still Wide Open!

barack-obama.jpghillary-clinton.jpgHillary Clinton went the defensive, doing what she had to do to win, but is the Democratic Party on the verge of self destruction. Barack Obama still leads in the delegate counts after and impressive winning streak, which was broken by Senator Clinton last night. Clinton won states which were critical to keeping her in this race. Clinton won the Ohio, Texas, and Rhode Island primaries. This will give her the much needed momentum she needed, but how long can this horse race go on?

The Clinton and Obama campaigns raised together an estimated 85 million dollars, which is really good, but they should be using that money to to fight McCain, and not each other. Clinton won big in Texas after the polls said that she would not win, similar situation in New Hampshire, Clinton reportedly had a lot of last minute votes and a large senior population turnout.

Clinton has really hit the Obama campaign really hard over the past week, she keep sating that she has the experience which Obama lacks, but we are trying to figure out what experience does she has that Obama does not have, especially on National Security.

Last night while talking to supporters in San Antonio last night, Obama said, No matter what happens tonight, “we have nearly the same delegate lead as we did this morning, and we are on our way to winning this nomination,”. Hillary Clinton might fight to get the Florida and Michigan to get those delegates counted, even though they were agreements that those states would be excluded.

The Democratic contest is far from settled, but these candidates need to make a decision soon, John McCain and the republicans must love all the fighting in the Democratic Party.

The next primaries are Mississippi and Wyoming next week.

Democrats Beware Ralph Nader is Back

Ralph nader is viewed by many as the man who took away voted from Democratic Presidential Nominee Al Gore during the 2000 Election. Today Nader announced that he would be running for President again. Nader has been long known as a consumer advocate, we know he won’t win the election so my question to him is: Why are you running for President of the United States? Nader and his Green Party things he should win because he gets thing done.

Nader’s announcements drew criticisim from the two current Democratic rivals who are contesting for the nomination. Illinois Senator barack Obama said, “He thought that there was no difference between Al Gore and George Bush and, eight years later, I think people realize that Ralph did not know what he was talking about,”. New York Senator Hillary Clinton said,”I remember when he ran before. It didn’t turn out very well for anybody — especially our country.”

We know we live in a country were you are free to persuit your dreams, and I know Ralph Nader will not back down. The Democrats needs to unite and stop slandering each other in the media. They don’t realize they are tearing their party apart. Ralph Nader might just benefit from the wedge the candidates are drawing in the democratic party.
