Leave it to former President Bill Clinton to sum up the differences in the two parties without being (too) disagreeable, and to cast the election in terms we can all grasp. I especially liked his summation when he said this:
My fellow Americans, you have to decide what kind of country you want to live in. If you want a you’re on your own, winner take all society you should support the Republican ticket. If you want a country of shared opportunities and shared responsibilities – a “we’re all in it together” society, you should vote for Barack Obama and Joe Biden.
That, I think, contrasts sharply with the message of the Republican convention last week. (You can read Clinton’s entire speech — and you really should — by clicking here.)
