Despite best efforts

February 22, 2007

Anyone who has read me from day one knows that my personal pet peeve in politics (pardon my alliteration) is negative campaigning. I really did have high hopes that Barack Obama would be able to avoid this fallacy popping up in his campaigning, but it seems that no matter how hard he may try, he has to rely on folks who may not have the same ideals.

Negative campaigning is so entrenched in todays politics that it has become a cliche, and no matter what the candidate may prefer, there are those working for the campaign that will open their mouths before thinking. It must be so hard to trust and rely on people when you’re a politician.
