Election Afterthought

After I watched An Inconvenient Truth the other night, I went on line to read a little more about Al Gore's biography. And I learned something interesting:

Bill Clinton was sworn in as president of the United States at the age of 46. He had served as Attorney General and Governor of Arkansas. Yet Hillary Clinton claimed that Barack Obama was too young (at 47) and inexperienced (after three terms as a U. S. senator from Illinois).

Huh.

I was, and in fact remain, a big fan of Hillary Clinton. But this tarnishes the image a little for me.
