Are people ignorant when saying Hilary would be better than Obama since the two do not differ at all politically?Posted by: natertig
Hilary and Obama vote virtually the same on all big issues. How can one be better than the other when all policy choices would be made the same way?
Yes. They are the same.
No, they are different.
They may be a few minor differences, but both are leftists and a Hillary presidency would be a continuation of Obama's failed policies.
Politicians differ, despite being in the same party or even the same family. For example, Bush 41 refused to go to Baghdad in '91 because he felt it would lead to a prolonged war ... the inevitable dissection of Iraq by various groups, etc. Yet, Bush 43 invaded Iraq ... rolled into Baghdad ... and ignored every warning his father had stated about it. Hillary may actually agree with Obama, or she is merely following protocol. When you are part of an administration, you don't openly disagree with the President. Therefore, we cannot assume she would vote the same on issues or handle every situation in the same way.
