We're planning on watching the Democratic debate tonight, and I suspect we might be in for a bit of this:
Seems like things are getting a bit testy between Clinton and Obama. Not to mention Hillary and Obama! I've heard rumors that they're trying to rein in Bill, and Hillary has said emphatically that this is HER campaign. Interesting stuff!
One thing that made me quite sad today was listening to a progam on NPR. They were talking to a group of African-Americans at a college, and others were calling in, to discuss Obama's bid for the presidency. One thing that came up was that some feel a very real sense of danger for Obama...that if he's elected, he will be a greater target for assassination. That just makes me feel ill...that anyone would want to kill any public figure simply because they don't like who they are or what they represent. I guess it shouldn't surprise me--it certainly happens all the time, all over the world, most recently with Bhutto. I wonder if there really is more risk for him, or if the risk is equal for any president? I would think that being president makes you an automatic target for certain nutjobs...is the risk really greater for Obama? And his family? It just boggles my mind to think that there are people out there that would want to kill the man. It makes me shudder to think of the aftermath if something like that were to happen. I pray that it doesn't.
