Letter: Obama, the doughy cookie
Vail, CO Coloado
My husband and I were arguing the other day. Once he realized I was winning the fight he muttered the words, “Well, you know that’s relative.”
Once the idea of relativity is brought into the conversation the argument generally ceases. This is because not only is he using it as an avoidance mechanism, but he is right. He’s right because everything is relative. I apply this theory to the current political race, Obama versus Clinton. Clinton’s camp has infamously criticized Obama’s lack of inexperience. Although they may have a point, their point is extremely relative. Obama’s inexperience is relative. When Obama’s name first became prominent in the presidential race, news anchors across the nation confessed their apprehension of an untested president. This opinion seemed to flourish until Obama opened his mouth. His words are authentic and raw. His words are genuine because of his naïvete!
Barack Obama is comparable to Scarlett Johansson back in her “Ghost World” days, the days before she marinated in Hollywood too long and started doing pretentious movies like “The Nanny Dairies.” Scarlett was pure and untouched. She was plainly gorgeous; no make up, no glamour. Untainted!
Clinton has been cooked well-done in the ever ostentatious life of politics. She has become hard and stale. Some people like their cookies doughy; some like their cookies crunchy. It all depends on how you view and apply the meaning of experience. And by the looks of it, it seems more and more people like their cookies doughy.
