I found this picture over at The Huffington Post and I absolutely love it.
It's very clear to me that Sen Barack Obama doesn't want to engage in the same type of political tactics as his democratic opponent HRC. As I am not a paid member of the campaign, I am capable of expressing myself however I choose. Yet, I will not call HRC out of her name, I will not diminish the accomplishments of her tenure in public office, I will not give in to my personal feelings on her campaign spins, instead I will only become an information broker and allow readers to draw their own conclusions.
I'm still awaiting a very public apology from Mainstream Media and HRC regarding the NAFTA Gate accusations to Sen Barack Obama, since the Canadian Government has already exonerated him and his advisor. Having multiple witnesses to support a call being made to a Canadian official from the HRC campaign, not Mr. Obama's has to be publicly acknowledged. There was no mistake at the damages caused by the MSM(mainstream media)attention to the matter. Sweeping the updated version under the rug, without giving it the immeasurable attention the negative story cast...is well questionable for lack of a better word.
here's an excerpt:
"Mr Brodie ... stopped to chat with several journalists, and was surrounded by a group from CTV.... The conversation turned to the pledges to renegotiate the North American free-trade agreement made by the two Democratic contenders, Mr Obama and New York Senator Hillary Clinton.
Mr Brodie, apparently seeking to play down the potential impact on Canada, told the reporters the threat was not serious, and that someone from Ms Clinton's campaign had even contacted Canadian diplomats to tell them not to worry because the Nafta threats were mostly political posturing."
According to this story in The Globe and Mail which is the equivalent to the AP in the U.S.
Another point of reference the 140 pardons granted by President Clinton on the last day of his term.
Here's another interesting excerpt:
"Former president Clinton issued 140 pardons on his last day in office, including several to controversial figures, such as commodities trader Rich, then a fugitive on tax evasion charges. Rich's ex-wife, Denise, contributed $2,000 in 1999 to Hillary Clinton's Senate campaign; $5,000 to a related political action committee; and $450,000 to a fund set up to build the Clinton library.
The president also pardoned two men who each paid Sen. Clinton's brother, Hugh Rodham, about $200,000 to lobby the White House for pardons — one for a drug conviction and one for mail fraud and perjury convictions, according to a 2002 report by the House committee on government reform. After the payments came to light, Bill Clinton issued a statement: "Neither Hillary nor I had any knowledge of such payments," the report said.
The pardon records released by the library divulge little that might settle debate about those and other pardons. But they do shed new light on the volume of clemency requests that former president Clinton received — and the pressures he and his staff faced as friends, advisers, political leaders and foreign heads of state weighed in to influence which petitions would be granted."

Maybe I'm not understanding the favors and money thing as being highly ethical.
