This has been a remarkable year for campaigns. There have been two firsts in the race - a woman who made it almost to the top, and a black man who has become the nominee for the Democratic party. Never before in history has this happened. But, the process in which it happened was warped. Anything said about Hillary was said to be because of the issues or what she said - nothing to do with her being a woman, which I find a little ridiculous since it was mostly her own party that was doing the talking. On the other hand, if anything derogatory was said about Obama, it became racist. The media left him alone on all the issues and questions for which the public wanted answers. I find it strange that our nation could be looking at the election of a President that is afraid to be asked questions and thinks that his wife is not supposed to be held accountable for the things she says. The day she stepped out to campaign for her husband, she became accountable and she will be watched until the election in November. Her comments have struck a high note in the public's eye and the note is a little off key!
