RS endorses Obama


I remember when Rolling Stone was the only nationally distributed magazine with the leftwing perspective. I actually read it for their political articles..I swear I did, when it was still put out in a newspaper format..ah..those were the days…

Jann Wenner, still the head cheese at RS, has written an article that endorses Obama.

This shouldn’t surprise anyone, it certainly doesn’t surprise me. But if you take the time to read his piece, Wenner parrots many of the same points of view that others do about Obama. Even the title: A New Hope, gives you an indication of whats inside the writeup. But, what I took from the article is not what Jann wrote about Obama..it was what he wrote about Hillary:

All this was made clearer by the contrast with Hillary Clinton, a capable and personable senator who has run the kind of campaign that reminds us of what makes us so discouraged about our politics. Her campaign certainly proved her experience didn’t count for much: She was a bad manager and a bad strategist who naturally and easily engaged in the politics of distraction, trivialization and personal attack. She never convinced us that her vote for the war in Iraq was anything other than a strategic political calculation that placed her presidential ambitions above the horrifying consequences of a war. Her calibrated course corrections over the past three years were painful. Like John Kerry — who also voted for the war while planning a presidential run — it helped cost her that goal.

He must be a romantic like moi. Because politics is a dirty game and Hillary can play it with the best of them..which might actually get her the nomination my dear reader. Doesn’t make it right..but it does make it possible.
