Where are the clowns?

Where are

the clowns?

Michael Reagan (“A gathering of clowns and con men,” Sept. 1) need look no further than the White House to find the real clowns who, unfortunately, have led our country down a despicable path for eight years.

John McCain already is putting on his face makeup to join the Republican circus.

My wife and I were at the Democratic National Convention and were totally energized and motivated by Barack Obama’s speech, as well as the speeches of others. This country desperately needs “change” to regain the respect of the world, solve our economic problems and leave a sustainable planet to future generations, all being issues that the Bush/McCain team seems to not recognize or have a realistic plan to deal with.

And, by the way, the 84,000 people we mingled with in Denver remarkably represented a true cross section of America who did take the promise of change seriously.

Finally, I am very disappointed with The Union for its selection of guest columnists. There are more than a few Democrats in Nevada County who are tired of reading the likes of Michael Reagan.
