Obama and Clinton On Most Corrupt Politicians List!!!

Hillary Clinton's ethics have been questioned in the past, but for the most part Barack Obama has enjoyed a relatively free ride in the way of scrutiny from the mainstream media.

It is true that Obama doesn't have the baggage of a Clinton or John McCain, but his name did appear on the Judicial Watch, Washington's Ten Most Wanted Corrupt Politicians list for 2007. Judicial Watch is a non-partisan educational foundation that promotes transparency, accountability, and integrity in government, politics, and the law.

Here's what Judicial Watch had to say about Obama who made the list. "A Dishonorable Mention last year, Senator Obama moves onto the ten most wanted list in 2007. In 2006, it was discovered that Obama was involved in a suspicious real estate deal with an indicted political fundraiser, Antoin Tony Rezko. In 2007, more reports surfaced of deeper and suspicious business and political connections. It was reported that just two months after he joined the Senate, Obama purchased $50,000 worth of stock in speculative companies whose major investors were his biggest campaign contributors. One of the companies was a biotech concern that benefited from legislation Obama pushed just two weeks after the senator purchased $5,000 of the company's shares. Obama was also nabbed conducting campaign business in his Senate office, a violation of federal law."

Here's what they had to say about Clinton. "In addition to her long and sordid ethics record, Senator Hillary Clinton took a lot of heat in 2007 - and rightly so - for blocking the release her official White House records. Many suspect these records contain a treasure trove of information related to her role in a number of serious Clinton-era scandals. Moreover, in March 2007, Judicial Watch filed an ethics complaint against Senator Clinton for filing false financial disclosure forms with the U.S. Senate (again). And Hillary's top campaign contributor, Norman Hsu, was exposed as a felon and a fugitive from justice in 2007. Hsu pleaded guilt to one count of grand theft for defrauding investors as part of a multi-million dollar Ponzi scheme."

The truth is that this is probably just the tip of the iceberg. For those who might think that I am bashing the Democrats and signaling out Obama and Clinton, rest assured that Republicans are not immune to corruption. Former Republican presidential candidates Rudy Giuliani and Mike Huckabee both cracked the top ten list as well. Although McCain did not make the list, there is more than enough dirt on him already. It is not surprising that Ron Paul's name is no where to be found.

Unfortunately, many are able to expose the corruption of the other party, but are complacent, ignorant, or blind to their own party's corruption. The point is that you probably don't get to this level in your political career without being severely compromised. There are more than enough skeletons in Obama's, Clinton's, and McCain's closet to bring them down anytime.

It is looking more like it will be Clinton or Obama as president. During the presidential campaign it is possible that McCain could self implode. There is also a chance that old and maybe even new scandals could be exposed, thus insuring a Democrat in the White House. Obama claims that he is the candidate for hope and change, but it appears as if little would really change if he is elected. The only thing that could change is there might be someone other than a Bush or a Clinton as president.
