See...that always gets my goat. It makes me see red when people say he does all this humanitarian stuff to stroke his ego...it's completley ridiculous! I mean the man has voluntarily gone to places like Africa to dig wells with his own hands, visit people who are literally piling ontop of each other just waiting to die because there is no other option for them...Ugh it makes me so angry. I've seen that pic of him crying after seeing a video on AIDS orphans...that's not ego stroking in the least.

I agree Laura. Everyone deserves grace, the right to begin again and be free of one's past.
You just can't take the benefits of globalization without taking the responsibilities...and what happens to people in countries like this is on everyone's shoulders, I just can't see how people turn blind eyes to things like that.

Ignorance like that saddens me so much, but there seems to be so much of it around. The people who can't even pronounce his name right ('oh, that Bow-no Guy...') pass judgement so quickly. I'm not quite sure what more they expect from him

I can guarantee y'all that I won't work for a politician who doesn't care about the poor. (In other words i'll never work for a republican )

Stars - I hear what you're sayin, I agree 100%
SO get out of that box!

(This kinda thing is why I this one uni course I'm taking that's *all* about development, globalization, poverty, etc etc etc)

EDIT:
(It also helped that all my profs in that course despise Bush.... )
