Both Senators McCain and Clinton have recently exposed themselves to public ridicule. Last week McCain falsely accused Iran of training al-Qaeda. McCain quickly corrected his faux pas after (his running mate?) Senator Lieberman whispered in his ear that al-Qaeda was Sunni and Iran predominately Shiite. McCain then echoed Bush's fantasy that the situation in Iraq has 'dramatically improved' ignoring the grim reality of renewed violence prompting the White House to plead for more help from the UK government. McCain's visit to Iraq can hardly be described as a casual visit to Baghdad. Security was extremely tight with overhead helicopters and large close presence of US ground troops. Many news commentators were critical of the clear abuse of taxpayer's funds to advance McCain's presidential aspirations. Meanwhile Senator Clinton regaled her supporters with a fabricated tale of dodging sniper fire on a trip to Bosnia in 1996 as first lady. Contrary to her self-serving claim, a CBS video posted on YouTube showed Clinton and her daughter Chelsea walking leasurely across the tarmac smiling and waving, stopping to shake hands with the Bosnia's acting president and greeting an eight year old girl.. Clinton admitted she misspoke when challenged claiming a 'lack of sleep' was responsible for her memory lapse. Sadly, the sleazy nature of her campaign and lack of credibility make her an extremely poor choice for the new occupant of the White House. On the other hand, Barack Obama, 'a white man with a black father' would bring much needed integrity and help clear the the eight year of lingering stench from the 'people's house.'
