The only thing missing in either presidential campaign is experience. We were forced to vote for the best of the worst and, in such a situation, no one wins. As stated by many during the presidential race, President-elect Barack Obama has no executive experience and no idea what he will do over the next month to establish his office. Sen. John McCain also might have executive experience and international experience, but has no economic experience.
Throughout the campaign, I have asked both candidates to place more emphasis on education. If our society were better educated, they would not purchase large-ticket items that they should know that they cannot afford. If we had better educated political figures in Congress, we would not be in the economic situation that we find ourselves in.
And here we are left with the best of the worst. Open your eyes and see the trees despite the forest. Obama is not prepared to deal with most any of the significant issues that confront us, let alone healthcare.
