the difference between obama and hillary

Wow this struck me today. Today is the day before "Thanksgiving", one of the biggest holidays of the American year, which is supposed to be about eating huge amounts of yummy food and focusing on gratitude.

At the top of Barack Obama's home page today: these four lines:

Happy Thanksgiving
Read a message from Barack
Support America's Second Harvest
Support Share our Strength

In the message linked at the top of his page, this quote from Barack

I will be volunteering this week at the New Horizons food pantry in Manchester, New Hampshire. And I encourage all Americans to do what they can to help those in need -- because the best way to show our gratitude for what we have is by doing our part for those who have less."

At the top of Hillary Clinton's Homepage today: these two lines:

Happy Thanksgiving
Read Hillary's Thanksgiving Message

In the message linked at the top of her page, this quote from Hillary
At our campaign offices in California, Iowa, New Hampshire, Nevada, and South Carolina as well as our headquarters in Arlington, Virginia, we're accepting donations of nonperishable food to help local efforts to fight hunger.

The difference here is enormous and very telling, in my opinion
