Comparing Clinton, Obama ads

The first ad is being aired in Washington by Hillary Clinton. The second is being aired in Louisiana by Barack Obama. Both put some focus on Health Care. Both talk about the future of our nation. However, only one has the same empty look and feel as every campaign we've seen for years.

The next stage of the race begins tomorrow. For me, this race is appearing to become a challenge of the status quo. The contenders seem to be backed by two opposing forces. Clinton by the usual political players and Obama by people hoping that our system isn't as screwed up as it seems.

I keep listening to the "Yes We Can" song (referenced in "Yes We Can! Music Video an internet hit!"), hoping that I'm hearing the words of our future President, but I can't help feeling worried that the dirty players are so entrenched in our system that we don't have a chance. At this point, all I can do is HOPE.

I WANT change.
It's been nearly 20 years since we've had someone NOT named Bush or Clinton as our President.
