Eden Hill Journal

Comments, dreams, stories, and rantings from a middle-aged native of Maine living on a shoestring and a prayer in the woods of Maine. My portion of the family farm is to be known as Eden Hill Farm just because I want to call it that and because that's the closest thing to the truth that I could come up with. If you enjoy what I write, email me or make a comment. If you enjoy Eden Hill, come visit.

Ferraro

Geraldine Ferraro became a household name in yesterday's political history when she was chosen, because she was a woman, to be the vice presidential running mate for Walter Mondale in 1984 running against Ronald Reagan then running for his second term. Mondale lost despite his politically correct choice for a running mate.
Ferraro has now resurfaced in political politics as a member of the Hillary Clinton campaign and an outspoken critic of Obama's qualifications suggesting that Obama in 2008 is where he is because of his race just as she was chosen in 1984 because of her gender. Many people, not just Obama supporters, see this as nothing but the most vile of politics.
I really don't need to say more, but just in case you might wonder what my feelings are, I give you MSNBC's Keith Olbermann!
