US Elections – change is the key
It seems to be an easy combination these days, to be a politician and a liar. Maybe it was ever so? It’s one of those questions which trip you up. The guy’s always going to insist he’s not a liar, but is he lying about it?
Well, yes, usually.
But it’s sometimes funny as well.
Yesterday’s article in The Times by Tim Reid and Tom Baldwin from New Hampshire, reported on a Democratic debate on Saturday where the rivals fell into arguing which one of them represented real change. John Edwards joined forces with Barack Obama, asserting that, unlike the former First Lady, both he and Obama were “agents of change”.
Hillary Clinton responded angrily, in the most heated moment of the night. “I want to make change, but I’ve already made change. I will continue to make change. I’m not just running on a promise of change. I’m running on 35 years of change.”
Earlier in the day, Bill Clinton, working non-stop to save his wife’s campaign, told a crowd in a school gymnasium in Amherst: “She’s a change-maker, the best I ever saw.”
Hey, you got to smile.
