Do the Right Thing, Barack

Reader comment on item: Obama's Connection to Sirhan Sirhan
in response to reader comment: One Big Mess

Submitted by Zentrist (United States), Nov 19, 2008 at 20:55

Personally, I would definitely not pardon Sirhan. However, if President Obama were to pardon the man, then I would support him in this pardon. On the basis of trust, I'd support such a decision. Along these lines, the discussion on TV tonight about whether Obama should or should not have Hillary at State...again, I'd trust Obama's judgment. He's not perfect, but already he has proven himself in terms of the very basics of good sound judgment. My bias is showing. Again, I did not vote for the man, but I've come to admire him. He has won me over.
