Something To Say-World

Something to Say-World blog is a forum where I can vent and share my strong viewpoints with the world, and get feedback from others, whether they are pro or con, for or against my positions. The main thing is that we engage in a thought provoking discussion with hopes of seeing the world in a more clearer and different light than we did before initiating our intellectual dialogues. __________ MOTTO:Committed To Relentless Pursuit Of Hidden Truths -Globally-

No doubt Barack Obama has to defend himself against charges and attacks coming from the Clinton camp, even if some are being made by a former president whose wife happens to be running for the presidency as well. But the primary point that Obama should keep in the forefront of his mind is that he must continue to stay above the fray as much as possible and let others do the underhanded, gutter fighting for him. He must try to look presidential at all times, coupled with carefully measuring when to pick his fights, especially.

Just as Hillary is using her husband Bill as a surrogate, hatchetman, pinchhitter, and the bad cop who brings the negative side of issues into play before the public's eye, Obama should do the same with some of his heavy hitters. Senator John Kerry who recently endorsed him over Hillary would be a good first start. Barack has to understand that when he himself responds in kind, he is only playing the Clintons' game and putting himself on the same level; which is exactly what Bill and Hillary want him to do to break his stride and momentum. Because the more the opponent, Obama, uses his time and energy to respond to their bogus attacks and gotcha-sucker charges, the less time he has to stay on point and get his message out to the voters.

It is quite apparent that when Obama defends against Bill instead of taking on Hillary, he is playing right into the Clintons' well-planned strategic trap. But it isn't too late to recover. If Obama keeps his focus and allow others to address the former president's comments, he will once again be in control of the situation versus the situation being in control of him. You decide!

It is obvious that President Bush's overly optimistic peace initiative between one half of the Palestinians and Israel is falling apart bit-by-bit, and day-by-day. Everyone except the Bush administration knows that Israel doesn't really want a peace settlement. Sure there is a public show, but not real substantive changes in its actions such as halting the building of settlements on Palestinian land or restraining itself from conducting military incursions into Gaza, leaving behind death and destruction; as has been th ecase in recent days.

Bush and Rice, not even the US Congress, have the will nor the courage to do what it takes to get Israel's undivided attention. The only way to bring a rogue state under control is to-simply-start cutting off the $3 billion or more annual funding, decisively and abruptly, until there is a clear sign of change in policies and actions toward the Palestinian people.

Clearly, Prime Minister Olmert-the current leader of Israel- has out foxed the US once again, just as others have many times in the past. You decide.

------------Today’s Commentary-------------

Barack Obama shook Hillary Clinton’s world, perhaps, not like ever before(?). But as it should have been. Her decisive defeat last night has probably sent all kinds of shock waves through the Hillary Camp, with prevailing apprehension about whether she has the right message and where did they-the Clinton Political Machine- go wrong. Forgetting-of course-that it is not the message in this case, but the messenger; plainly and irrefutably. Iowans like so many US Americans are simply fed up with the status quo, and especially Bill and Hillary. No one, not this blogger in particular, wants a return to the “good old days of yesteryear;” and definitely not with Hillary and Bill-in that order.

Sure, I know the Iowa caucusing results doesn’t determine who will be the last one standing for each political party’s national convention. But Iowans do send a reverberating message to the rest of the country that they have taken a close look, almost a year in total, and have a pretty solid feel for which candidate is best for each respective political party and the country as a whole. And maybe-just maybe-for the entire world as well. Substantive change, not rhetoric and the same old partisan in fighting that stifles progress. Will New Hampshire take note and follow Iowa’s lead? Let’s hope so.

If Obama should go all the way to represent the Democratic Party in November’s election , and subsequently is elected president, there will be a major earth quake felt all around the world. No, I wasn’t there in Iowa nor on the sweet soil of the good old US of A last evening, but I felt the tremor all the way over here in Europe. You decide!
