US Presidential Dynasties, Barf

In the past few days the Hillary/Obama rivalry has gotten intense. David Geffen, a former Bill Clinton big donor, has come out against Hillary via Maureen Dowd's NYT column [available only on paid Times Select]. I don't have Times Select but Howie Kurtz of the Wa Post has a good article here.

I agree with Geffen on two points. First, it is ridiculous that Hillary will not apologize for voting to authorize the Iraq War. It is obvious to most that she voted for the War's approval because she wanted to move "right" and did not want to be seen as weak on defense in a climate of hysteria post 9/11.

Second, I am totally with Geffen that Obama's
"not from the Bush royal family or the Clinton royal family. Americans are dying every day in Iraq. And I'm tired of hearing James Carville on television."
I don't like Obama, who is a closet socialist, but I more dislike the possibility of having another legacy President.
