The tribulations of a young journalist and writer looking for work

Which do I choose of Clinton and Obama?

with one comment

No, I’m not talking endorsements here. a) I can’t do that, b) Who cares who little old me endorses? and c) I don’t even get to vote in this country (and I’m thankful I don’t have to torture myself about making a choice).

But Missouri is being courted these days, and its press corps with it. I already missed Chelsea Clinton on campus Monday and John Edwards in Jefferson City on Tuesday because, well, I’ve got classes. I was set to go see Barack Obama in St. Louis on Saturday (bless him for choosing a class-less day), but now Bill Clinton has announced he will show up on our campus. That same day.

So which do I choose? I was really curious to see Obama; I hear he’s something to behold when it comes to oratory skills. But Bill Clinton is, well, Bill Clinton.

Have you seen either of those guys talk? Which is your pick?

PS: I’m not showing my biases here. No Republican candidate has visited our campus yet, that I know of.

  1. I’ve got pretty strong opinions on this subject. Talk to me sometime about it.
