Dear Dolores,


Our current financial disaster allows the global economy to evaluate our current administration and our candidates. The world is voting NO on trust in our choices. We have the wrong candidates, and very unprepared candidates, for the next administration and our role in global economy, community and humanity is reflecting that reality.

The Clintons, Mitt Romney, John Edwards and others have the fiscal knowledge and global perspective for the immediate job of balancing our economy to its world value. Barack Obama is exclusionary and John McCain is delusional. Joe Biden is too politically focused and Sarah Palin is violently antagonistic to a world that sets our global economic value.

We, the people, once again have made the wrong choices and likely will elect the last President of the United States of America.

Dear Editor,

It has become quite clear that Sarah Palin is not ready, is now under appropriate media scrutiny, and John McCain has no message except his days in Hanoi. The result of this election will be a poor choice of skills by the candidates to represent us in a global economy. We could have made a far better choice.

It is time to step forward positively and really state a candidate's resume for the job of managing us out of an obvious disaster that was the Bush administration. Voters can hide behind a willful stupidity but the world will measure all of us for our choice.

And thanks to HAL for letting us consider more than lipstick,
