THE APPOINTMENT OF HILARY CLINTON AS SECRETARY OF STATE healed a lot of hurt.
Her appointment is perfect and should build positive responses to America from throughout the world. While the present Secretary is fine, Hilary will make her presence heard and felt in a much larger manner. Hilary will speak louder and will not be pressed for time or space. She should be a perfect Secretary of State.
In my opinion, President-elect Obama has demonstrated much more wisdom than ever thought possible by most Republicans and he has yet to take the Oath of Office. So far, so good. He has truly given many Republicans new hope.
I am but one voice, but I look forward to his administration. From the day he made it known that he intended to run the race, I supported him--until his bad company raised some serious issues.
After much thought, I got over it; I recall the company I kept was less than perfect and I never had intentions for becoming elected to any office. So, youth is full of flurry and activity, but the fact that he has been elected has, in my opinion, given the nation a new lease on opportunity and equality. And I believe he is just realizing he has won the big one and he will be everyone's president. There will be change and we all made this possible. So, for what it's worth, I shall support this future President and pray for his continued wisdom and knowledge in running the greatest nation on earth.
- HUFFSTUTTER'S PHOTO ESSAYS
- My dad's dad, my grandfather, was nine years old when President Lincoln died from an assassin's bullet. Most people think I am speaking of my GREAT GRANDFATHER. NO, I am referring to my dad's father, my paternal Grandfather, Robert Levi Huffstutter, born in 1856. What does this information have to do with my profile? It might help the reader understand that I have a sense of being much older than I am in that only one generation seperates me from President Lincoln. This causes me to respond differently to society and many current events. In many respects, this is to my benefit, in other respects it dates my mindset. Perhaps this is the reason I value the moral standards and idealogies of older Americans, the men who were the soldiers and sailors I saw when I was a small boy,the men and women who fought a war for freedom without any doubts posted by a media with a questionable lack of national unity and purpose.
