The problem with us and will stay on is when the horse
runs away we will close the barn gate. President
Barack Obama and Republican
challenger Mitt Romney both

Sorry, but Oprah did in that chance in 2008.... Oprah picked race and Chicago-ness over gender and experience.... A lot of people forget about it now, but it was largely Opray's Obama push that got him moving on the inescapable path to the presidency (of course, it also took some helpf from a very badly designed campaign from Hillary et al.).
Rather than playing in mud Hillary Clinton should come out openly and support Freedom and Democracy in Egypt without any reservation and making waves. Starting with give an ultimatum to the military and the captive Court to accept the People's verdict and allow the new elected members to rule over the nation. It is a golden opportunity for Hillary and Obama to make history in the middle east supporting the elected government of Islamic Party and change the image of America and Americans in that part of the world Primarily and in the Islamic world generally. But, will Obama and Hillary show their guts?
