Why do the Democrats tend to select candidates who are insecure with their own selves? Al Gore was always changing, John Kerry was a stuffy, full of crap phony and now it appears Obama (the Dem frontrunner) has been playing the role of a messianic post-racial prez candidate (whatever that means) while listening for 15 years to his black mentor berate America as evil incarnate.
It's like the Dems are too clever for their own good- they can't seem to go for authenticity! Why is that? Perhaps because the party is powered by many, many trial lawyers, grievance mongers, union leaders and far left think tanks? Yeah that is why IMHO.
