Why is it really a surprise that people find Obama more honest and trustworthy than Hillary? She's a product of a corrupt system and has been for 3 decades. Obama hasn't been there long enough to be fully corrupted...yet.

And, let's be honest. It isn't difficult to find someone more honest and trustworthy than Hillary. :laugh:

I guess a lot support her just to spite republicans who may spontaneously combust if she is elected.

And looking good while doing it doesn't hurt either. See Bill Clinton for how to lie correctly and still have people admire you years after you have left office. Now that's Slick :)

What's strange to me is in one thread people are bashing Hillary for not having qualifications... as if she would not have the experience or knowhow in order to be an effective president. Now in this thread she is the ultimate insider, corrupted by 3 decades of Washington.
