I hear a lot of you talking about Obama and how excited you are about his presence, his leadership, his vision.

I am almost certainly voting for Hillary Clinton because I feel the Barak Obama healthcare plan does not go far enough; it will leave way too many Americans uninsured. I think he will spend a lot of time pandering to the right and will not stand his ground sufficiently against the republicans. (I may vote for someone on the ballot who is neither Obama or Hillary Clinton, but I'm not sure.) Still, I like Clinton's ferocious and unapologetic intelligence a great deal, and that she doesn't pander.

I won't be crushed if Obama wins. So long as he changes his health care plan. Frankly, I'd be happier if either of them would talk seriously about addressing poverty on a wide scale.

But here is my question, meant to get real responses, not to poke at anyone...

What is it in Obama's conrete vision of America that inspires you? I mean beyond the feel-good language -- what specific things are you for, that Hillary Clinton doesn't have? What makes you feel he actually has the experience or wherewithal to carry through on his promises to restore American prestige?

I could still be persuaded to change my mind.
