I will NOT vote for Barack Obama

This morning, on AM 980, Barack made his case in the most arrogant and conceited way possible:
"I think that I would be the strongest nominee, because if I am, Hillary's people will vote for me, but I don't think it would be the same way the other way around."
I am paraphrasing what he said, as I don't have access to the transcript, but I found his statement to be absolutely off base, and offensive.
As a Hillary Clinton supporter, I probably would not vote for Barack Obama if he were the nominee. For me, it's about his lack of experience. How can we entrust someone with practically no national or foreign policy experience with the biggest and toughest job in the world? It makes absolutely no sense.
We have so many problems at home and around the world... Our economy is failing, we are at war, we have health care and social security crises, and our national image looks bad around the world.
This is NOT the time to nominate someone untried, and untested. John McCain will eat Barack alive in a debate, and not for the reasons why you might think.
With all of the problems that we have at home and all of the foreign policy decisions that have to be made by the next president, in November, Americans are going to realize that it would be unprecedented and inconceivable to elect someone as President of the United States with little experience AT A TIME LIKE THIS.
I know that Barack makes the case for Lincoln and Kennedy, but those were different eras, and different times.
I, for one, don't want someone with a little over three years of senate time running our country at a time like this, whether or not he is the only democratic choice.
This is why I'm supporting Hillary Clinton, and hope that for the good of the country she wins on Super Tuesday.
I respect Barack for talking about hope and togetherness all the time, but anyone could go to Barnes and Noble and buy a self help book and put it up on a teleprompter. When it comes down to November, the Republicans are going to be asking whether or not he supports abortion, gay rights, gun rights, etc... And when the issues turn to this, they won't be wanting to be all close to Barack and vote for him anymore...
Hillary is the only one I believe who can beat McCain, and who has the experience and record to run the country the way it must be at this time.
