In the same way, Barack Obama CAN indeed talk of change because he hasn't corrupted himself with any wrongdoing - that we know of.
Somewhat different is the situation when discussing the ever-present, tear-dropping [whining... ;-)] Senator Hillary Clinton. She gets a lot of exposure on international TV, yet noone asks the necessary questions. What could people be thinking?
- I think many are thinking: "Why didn't she kick I-didn't-have-any-sexual-relations Bill Clinton out of the marriage?" Many no doubt feel it's tragic enough that either his libido was bigger than his self-restraint, or that they should both have concentrated more on keeping one another content in ALL areas. But what people THINK is one thing, how they will vote is another.
- Why hasn't she voiced how she wants to be DIFFERENT from her husband? Why get his "support" if talk is on change and a new direction?
- What will be her position on international questions? Not just Iraq, but foreign policies in general... No need for spin if real politics were discussed.
Selecting someone for four years is a highly important decision and deserves your full attention. :-)
