I Intend To Support Hillary ...

. . . However, the fact of the matter is that during Monday night's debate, when Obama accused Hillary of lying about his fiscal proposals and about his support for Ronald Reagan -- Hillary responded by telling a new set of lies.

Since I think that the Republicans will stop at nothing to steal this election, I am not sure how I feel about the need for honesty in a Democratic Presidential candidate.

Al Gore tried to portray himself as honest. The Republicans have controlled the White House for 28 of the last 40 years.

I am more concerned with a candidate's will to win. A will to win at least at the same level that Karl Rove and his hand-picked Republican U.S. Attorneys will bring on behalf of the Republican candidate -- be it the so-called "Straight Talk Express" or the candidate who won't even respond to his own name without taking a poll.

Obama's willingness to go toe to toe against Hillary (and Bill) during Monday night's debate is an encouraging sign for the Democratic Party. His statement that he won't just say anything to get elected is discouraging.

Who does he think he is running against in the fall?

What world does he think he will be dealing with a year from now?
