Students weigh in on Obama vs. Clinton

YSU students

Students at Youngstown State University were asked their thoughts on Tuesday’s Ohio Democratic primary pitting Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama.

Tina Lamb, a 19-year-old sophomore from Leetonia: “I’m voting for the first time. It’s going to affect my future. I’m an Obama supporter. He has good things to say.”

Edwina Baier, a 23-year-old senior from Campbell: “I’m supporting Hillary. I’ve come to the conclusion that she has the most experience. I believe in what she says. I believe she’s a better candidate. She’s a brilliant woman.”

Cassandra Baker, a 19-year-old sophomore originally from Maui, Hawaii: “I’m actually split. I’m leaning more toward Obama, but I still want to hear from both sides. I like his political stance on the war and health coverage. He is against the war. I have a brother fighting over there [in the Air Force] and I want him to come home.”

Zane Calik, a 19-year-old freshman from Liberty: “When I was real young, I was so incredibly impressed with Bill Clinton and his presidency. The type of experience he has is rubbing off on her. She’s doing a better job with health care than Barack Obama. Their policies are somewhat similar, but she’ll be able to implement hers because of her experience.”

Matt Anderson, a 20-year-old sophomore from New Castle, Pa.: “Obama is the best candidate. He’s really for the people. He’s different from the norm. I believe in a lot of things he’s saying. He’s been truthful.”

Nicole Hinchcliffe, a 21-year-old senior from Youngstown: “I feel experience is No. 1 in this campaign. We need her in there. She has what it takes to run the country: integrity, intelligence, a strong will.”

Interesting that Hillary is fond of claiming to have been a key player in the formulation of Clinton Foreign Policy: 9/11 was a direct result of the Clinton Administration’s feckless responses to the numerous Al-Qaida provocations and terrorist assaults against our national interests; as well as, Clinton’s inexplicable temerity in refusing to take Osama bin Laden into captivity when offered several times by the Sudanese. Clinton then exercised little more than his jawbone as bin Laden trained literally thousands of terrorists in his Afghan camps. All of which, convinced bin Laden that he could strike our homeland with relative impunity. The potential for success in bin Laden’s planned assault on our homeland was significantly enhanced by the infamous Gorelick memo which the Clinton Administration promulgated to prohibit any terrorist information exchange between our FBI and CIA intelligence operatives. However, history will record the most heinous assault on America's national security interests by a U.S. president as Clinton's transfer of our most advanced missile guidance technology to the CHICOM for a few campaign shekels. Does any rational person really want to return the Clinton cabal/scandals to the White House?
