Focus should be on talent and ideas
I read the Journal Sentinel article, "Clinton, McCain bounce back in N.H." with glee (Jan. 9). It's not because Hillary Clinton is my favorite candidate; she is not. Rather, it is that I want to see our conservative, right-wing radio talk show hosts collectively squirm in their seats.
These little men have been harassing her like a herd of rabid, flesh-ripping hyenas. The daily drumbeat goes on and on: Clinton shows too much cleavage, she is too cold and calculating, she is too weepy, she is too emotional, she laughs too loud and so on. These spinmeisters grab on to absolutely every detail and put a negative twist to it.
After a while, it gets repulsive and disgusting, and one can't help but wonder why grown men can predictably, and at length, behave in such a manner. What is their goal?
Groundless character assassination is not necessary; the best candidate will prevail. This country is dying for new leadership, and we should be grateful that there are people with the fortitude and ambition to take on this formidable task. Is it possible that these back-biting tactics will keep some good and talented people out of the race? I surely think so.
Couldn't have said it better myself. And for the record, my name is not Fritz Jusak, nor do I live in Germantown.
