As Hillary Clinton looks to rebound in New Hampshire, it appears one part of her strategy will be to cast Barack Obama as the favorite of yuppie elites who aren't looking for experienced leadership so much as they are wanting to ride a trend or indulge a sentiment.I would like to not feel ill when I hear the Commander in Chief (I was enlisted) on the radio the way I did during Clinton and Bush II. If that is indulging a sentiment, sue me.
I've always wanted to know if I'm a member of the cherished Middle Class politicians alway talk about and pander to? These Middle Class folks I keep hearing about, can they be software engineers or have ever cashed in stock options or worked for Bay Area companies?
I might have been a yuppie elite when I lived in laid back Central Austin neighborhood with lots of 40-something hippie-artistic types (oh the scent of Cannabis wafting across Burnet road), but up here in Skokie on a single income, struggling to pay for overpriced housing, expensive [public] pre-schools, with a few grand in unpaid mental health bills, where I'm afraid to even drive in these old-money North Shore neighborhoods in our brand new Honda minivan. Is that "Middle Class" enough? Maybe Hill is my gal? Forgot about manufacturing, will Edwards should fight to keep my high paying security job from being outsourced to an MSSP? No, I don't want a damn thing. I just want government (and the executive branch, because Congress is a lost cause) to have the appearance of being civil and competent. That's all I ask.
