Appealing to hope vs. using our weaknesses

Bill Clinton has returned to the dojo of American politics to engage the voters of our nation in a winner-take-all bout. I am saddened to see at the core of our ex-president a center that maneuvers around the projected ills of others. To demonstrate: He is not a racist, but he is willing to use this country's lingering illness of racism much like using Monica Lewinsky's insecurities for his own personal satisfaction. Hillary Clinton wields this energy as a campaign tactic.

I see hope as the unlimited stance. Hope unleashes the abundant dynamism of our nation. Hope is necessary.
