The Candidate Of Change? Obama Isn't It.

Well, it's been a while since I've blogged about the current Presidential Campaign. I thought I'd take a break just like Congress. Of course I can't take FIVE WEEKS OFF like Congress can so I'm back at it.

Truthfully, I can't understand why this campaign hasn't been called in favor of Senator John McCain already. Why? Because Senator Barack Obama has set up his whole campaign around being the candidate for change. He's short on what he'll change but what blows apart his "candidate of change" theme is his pick for a running mate. Senator Joseph Biden is as far from change as you can get. He's a complete Washington insider, extremely partisan, and as his past comments have shown...no fan of Obama's.

If Washington is broken as Obama says it is then isn't Senator Biden, having served more than 30 years in the Senate, part of the reason it's broken? This sounds more like political expediency than change.
