Dear Anonymous and other commenters:
Thank you for reading my last post and for commenting. Your comments are well received and appreciated. I would like to say a word regarding the previously mentioned post in order to clarify and comment on your own comments.
I do not believe that Barack Obama was initially seeking out the Hollywood attention. As any candidate, he is seeking media attention. That is to be expected. How else will he get his name out across the country? Heidi Ashworth made a comment and I agree with what you said: "I think the people are at fault. Sorry America, but our priorities are all screwed up. It's really sad." I concur. We feed into it all. We are the oil that feeds the fire. It is disturbing. But, what is more disturbing to me is that I feel like he so readily going along with it. He is the object of this celebrity talk and there is a reason for it. If the tables were turned and McCain were in Obama's position, I would be equally annoyed.
Once again, I believe Obama is a good man. Sincerely, I believe he wants what is best. My idea is different from his on how to achieve "best" but I think he has great intentions. He is a fabulous speaker and is inspiring. There is a reason, yes anonymous, that people flock to him. I'm not denying that at all. My fear is that a lot of the Obama supporters don't know what they are voting for because the facts are overlooked by the excitement of it all.
Look, friends, there is always something that bothers me about campaigns. Usually it's the mud slinging. I am so happy that this time around there seems to be less of that. I was impressed with Obama, when referring to Palin's daughter, making a statement discouraging others to use that as a point against the McCain/Palin campaign. I'm grateful for a campaign season where I feel like there are 2 good, decent men running for President. However, the celebrity issue stands for me. I have no doubt that in the coming time we will get to know these two candidates better, and hopefully, we will all make an educated vote.
