Older voters gravitate to Hillary Clinton because they're too wise to be fooled by Barack Obama's rhetoric, former president Bill Clinton told Pennsylvania voters today. If older means smarter & more experienced...u betcha!

I think there is a big reason there's an age difference in a lot of these polls," he said. "Because once you've reached a certain age, you won't sit there and listen to somebody tell you there's really no difference between what happened in the Bush years and the Clinton years; that there's not much difference in how small-town Pennsylvania fared when I was president, and in this decade."

"So I think it's important that we get to the truth of this," Clinton continued, going on to compare his and Bush's record on jobs, family incomes, and other measures.

Very dumb remark. They must be both becoming a bit demented.

That was not a very intelligent comment by you either, Carol. I think it was something that polls have already pointed out. A poll is a poll....and we certainly hear enough about the ones in favor of Obama. Likewise, I'm going to continue posting those against him, too!

The point is that most older people will remember that things were not good before Clinton became the President. Then they will remember how good things were during the Clinton administration. On the other hand the current college students were very young during those years and so they weren't paying attention to economic conditions before or during the Clinton administration. All they would know is what they are being told now. Joking about Hillary being 60 and being tired is different. He was referring to the fact that she could get some details wrong about something that happened over 10 years ago. The difference is remembering the general condition of the economy during the Clinton years and forgetting some details that might have happened then. Remember that Hillary went to many, many countries. It is likely that she had some kind of sniper fire incident in a different country or at a different time. Many of us have no problem remembering important things but we can get a lot of small details wrong.

." Everyone should vote for the person the person they believe will do the best job. If we just vote the person who is most "electable" we could end up with a president everyone voted for, but who no one really likes. That's not a recipe for success. So in the spirit of choosing the person who is best for you, your country, and your world, I present

We had major deficits when Bush 1 left office, and Bill managed to get us back in the black.. Then Bush 2 comes along... and now we are further in debt then we, as a nation, have ever been...

How easy they forget.

I quote Hillary..., "It took a Clinton to clean up after the first Bush, and it will take another Clinton to clean up after the second Bush!"

Go Hillary!

Please vote with knowledge and wisdom for the best qualified person.
America is too precious for just anyone to "try" to be president.
We need someone who "can" be president. :)
Remember to vote wisely because our future depends on the decisions
we make.
