Only once in a blue moon does a candidate come along that people can truly get excited about. Rush Holt comes readily to mind, and to a lesser extent, Ron Paul. Unfortunately, neither of these distinguished individuals is running for president. The point is, more often than not, we the voting public are left to decide between the lesser of two evils rather than vote for a candidate who is really inspiring. Which is why we want to clarify our position on Barack Obama. We like him, but not because we swallowed his message of change hook, line and sinker: He is the lesser of two evils (three, if you count Palin), plain and simple.
