Obama's Experience

This article gives an example of Obama's experience and why his methodology, and talent, should be valued. This story, from a few days ago on, about Obama's central role in changing Illinois' death penalty rules: "Barack Obama can honestly claim to have made a difference on a matter of life and death."

Briefly put: when Hillary, and now, shamefully, Bill Clinton denigrate Obama's experience, they are in the wrong. Hillary has held 1 elected office - and has been unremarkable in it. Obama has had a few years in legislative work, in a much more difficult arena of state politics (which he achieved without relying solely on his spouse's fame).
