It’s true that the politicians change but the messages often remain the same. We get the same kind of promises every two years, and neither party does a satisfactory job of delivering on their promises. I am a cynical as the next person. But Barack Obama has emphasized two main themes in this campaign that, more than anything, explain why he is winning and favored to be the next President of the United States. Here they are:

“I don’t want to just end the war, but I want to end the mind-set that got us into war in the first place.”- Barack Obama

The votes hadn’t even been counted in November [2006] before we heard reports that corporations were already recruiting lobbyists with Democratic connections to carry their water in the next Congress. That’s why it’s not enough to just change the players. We have to change the game…The truth is, we cannot change the way Washington works unless we first change the way Congress works.”- Barack Obama

Hillary Clinton, by contrast, embodies the mindset that got us into the war and famously said that she takes money from registered lobbyists because they are ‘real’ Americans.
