Obama, Clinton, and the Media
This is funny. You know, the media has a great time depicting Hillary Clinton as a blood thristy, raging, power hungry white woman. Even though I am a supporter of Barack Obama, I'm leery of how others are presented to me by the media whether it is favorable or not. This is especially true when it comes to politics. Yes, I was also leery of Obama in the beginning. He seemed too good to be true. Plus, I felt like many who thought that America would never, never, never place a person of African descent on a believable path to the White House. Now, I'm just anxious to see how all of this will pan out. Is America finally ready to start the healing? Are we ready to turn the pages of history and start a new and inclusive chapter? Perhaps.
