Debate Is Not a "Complication"

Obama says he is "maybe" running for Prez in 2008.

And the NY Times says this has "has created complications for Senator Hillary Rodham Clinton as she steps up her own preparations."

What complications? This is the democratic process. A group of people run against each other in a Party, and the democratically chosen candidate squares off in the general election.

The wonderful victory of the Democrats in November is not going to herald a time when there's no disagreement or debate in politics. On the contrary, debate and disagreement will again influence decisions made by goverment, rather than being ignored by it.
