the weight of the world(political world that is)
As the political season progresses, I am reminded of the old myth about how Hercules took the burden of Atlas for a very short time. To bear the weight of the world, what strength must be had to accomplish such a feat? How akin to that is the though of Bill Clinton, as he has done so many times in the past shouldering the Hopes of the Democratic party in this election. With Barrack Obama so weighed down by the burden of trying to repair a cripped nation, how lucky is he to have a force like Bill Clinton to draw upon. And to think that democrats had the nerve to run away from anything Clinton at one time. Bill Clinton has been a consumate Democrat, a party loyalist and a party leader, and as he once again heads into the breach for a party that seems to forever need him, I can truthfully say How akin to Hercules and Atlas. Bill Clinton and Barrack Obama. The weight of the Political world Borne on two strong sets of political shoulders!
