Topic: election

CNN's playing some footage of her in Mississippi the other day. She's addressing a
presumably mostly black audience, the two men standing on either side of her black,
and she's acknowledging that Obama has a lot of support in the state--"As he should!"
She pays tribute to Medgar Evans. There's some obvious uncertainty as she speaks, a
hesitation, as she tries to find the words that will finesse her way around...what?
I'll hand it over to Neil Young, addressing Nixon in 1974:

     I never knew a man
     Who could tell so many lies
     He had a different story
     For every set of eyes
     How can he remember
     Who he's talking to?
     'Cause I know it isn't me
     And I hope it isn't you.
