Some More Reasons Not to Vote for Hillary

There are a number of reasons why I think Obama is a better candidate than Hillary Clinton, if you want to vote for a left wing candidate.

1. Labor Issues
Barack Obama is strongly supportive of a living wage and the rights of workers. He has even participated in picket lines for striking hotel workers. Hillary, on the other hand, has hired a PR man, Mark Penn, who has helped company's such as Cintas bust unions, as this Nation article reveals.

2. The War
Many harp on Obama's lack of foreign policy experience. However, that did not prevent him from coming to the correct conclusions on Iraq. Meanwhile, as Christopher Hitchens points out that Hillary has had to make some alterations in her Iraq stance.

Furthermore, Hillary has little more foreign policy experience than Obama, mostly limited to PR visits to foreign capitals.

Obama addresses these issues in this interview with David Letterman:
