two major contenders for the 2008 election are experience (McCain)
versus inexperience (Obama). Obama's inexperience is disturbing in
that he appears to have disregarded the elected seats he occupied to
continue climbing the political ladder. Once elected, he effected
little, if any, change. Obama's political career is one of meteoric
trajectory from an obscure Illinois legislator to a short-lived U.S.
Senator (only two years into his six-year term before he hit the
presidential campaign trail) to the Democratic nominee for president
with a very good chance of winning the highest office in the land -
all with nothing backing his eligibility except good communication
skills and nearly three-quarters of a billion dollars.
