The political battles have already heated up.
The most notable presidential candidates trading shots are Hillary Clinton and Barrack Obama.
Clinton is accusing Obama of being frustrated with his recent losses in Nevada and New Hampshire and of not backing up his actions.
Continuing the fight, Obama retaliated saying Clinton would do anything to fudge the truth.
The South Carolina primaries are on Saturday, and the Monday night exchange between the two proves one thing: the worst is yet to come.
What more could we expect from presidential hopefuls?
Our country needs change, and the one thing that politicians fail to change about themselves is their inability to fight a fair fight.
Do candidates really believe that American citizens enjoy or want to hear them fight over their usually small differences?
In fact, do American citizens even believe half of what politicians are promising our country in the first place?
After eight years of President Bush’s control over the United States, it’s true that we as a people are ready for change.
However, the changes that these candidates promise to make are overshadowed by their failed attempts to get along during debates.
How are we as a people supposed to trust a presidential candidate to control and make important decisions when neither side, Republican or Democrat, can simply agree to disagree in a civil manner?
I fully realize these people are battling for the most powerful position in the world, but throwing personal attacks at each other doesn’t prove their worth or credentials to be our leader.
The day that one of our candidates accepts that a foe has a good plan and recognizes it publicly during a debate will be a milestone worth noting.
Imagine Clinton agreeing with one of Obama’s plans and saying, I agree with Mr. Obama and he has a good idea, but I would change it slightly in this way, without a political attack to go along with it.
The rise in support would be substantial.
But then again, these are politicians. Why would we ever expect a reasonable amount of hospitality and humility?
The fact is, they don’t have all the answers, as much as they would love for us to believe so.
I don’t have any confidence that any of the presidential candidates will lower taxes substantially.
I also don’t believe that college tuition will be lowered, no matter how much they promise.
The candidates get so invloved with changing every little thing about our country, they fail to change much at all.
I would go as far as to say that the presidential hopefuls care more about bashing each other than about what is important to U.S. citizens.
This election is about more than the differences between our choices of future leaders, but the candidates don’t see that.
It would be absurd to think that these people should, or will ever like each other, but what is one of the first things you learn in debate or argumentation classes?
Know your facts.
Don’t make promises you can’t keep.
Use your opponents weakness to your advantage.
At no university in the U.S. would a professor tell you to yell at your opponent and call them a liar.
If your best come back is that someone is a liar, why even say it?
Don’t bicker. Resolve.
The last thing our country needs is our future leaders to think they know everything and that they have the perfect plan.
They don’t, and we will never believe that they do.
