The virtual tie between Obama and Hillary is to be expected. We are all in such turmoil over what we have lived with under the Bush administration that we are all groping for any change. It will go down to the wire to the August convention which will turn to tie breaker Al Gore who will go on to become the 44th president.
Slaveowner Thomas Jefferson accused UK King George III in the Declaration of Independence of many grievances and reasons why the colonies were striking out on their own. But Jefferson's true colors as a racist broke through. He pledged a battle with "the inhabitants of our frontiers, the merciless Indian savages," those native Americans who were struggling for survival in the land they called home their whole lives.
