More Obama Buyer’s Remorse

Written By: William F. B. O'Reilly - Aug• 11•11

More buyer’s remorse from a former Obama supporter who now wishes he had supported Hillary Clinton in the 2008 Democratic Primaries. 

St. Louis Post-Dispatch columnist Bill McClellan opines: 

Hillary was not new. She represented the second act of ‘Billary,’ and I had tired of that play long before it ended its eight-year run.

So I voted for Obama in the primary and then again in the general election. I even left the election night party at the Pageant — a party with an open bar and filled with state legislators, union guys and other acquaintances — to go to the Chase Park Plaza, where the Obama people were celebrating. I knew almost nobody at that second party, but I was there when the networks declared that Obama was the next president. People cried and hugged. I got teary myself. A black president. The times they are a-changing.

Indeed. They keep getting worse.

The taller they are, the harder they fall.  Indeed.
