Letter: Too much fear of controversy

Letter: Change we can do without
If Sen. Barack Obama were a participant in a debate contest, he would be deserving of our affirmation. However, we do not elect presidents for the eloquence of their speech, but for their ability to actually lead. What we have heard plenty is the "change" mantra. I can think of few...
