Elizabeth Drew has a perfect term describing the state of the current presidential campaign: Molehill Politics. Instead of talking about real issues, Clinton and McBush are jumping on Obama for what he said in one speech, and that’s the top story in the news.
I don’t believe Obama said anything wrong. He’s absolutely right and this is a perfect example of what he was talking about. The government has failed most of us. Instead of talking about how to change it, they try to distract everyone with fake issues.
