Bill Clinton not a friend

Former President Clinton's support of McCain's debate boycott is bullshit.

Obama Make THE Speech to Hillary Supporters

Barack,

I've debated whether we need to wait a few more days before writing this but as more state and national polls come out, it's clear to me with each passing day that this bounce is probably not a bounce but an actual game-shifting surge.  Your surrogates try to point to this or that in these polls to rationalize that it's solely due to independents or just renewed enthusiasm from the Republican base.  Blindly believing that some of Hillary's supporters aren't still hurt and seeking closure for those feelings, at this point, leads us closer and closer to defeat.

Hillary made her speech to her supporters, Bill made his speech to Hillary's supporters - they were fine speeches but those speeches were not enough for many.  

** BARACK IT'S TIME YOU MAKE 'THE SPEECH' DIRECTED STRAIGHT TO HILLARY's SUPPORTERS  **

And you need to do it NOW.  But you say, "I always ask them for their vote at every stump I give".  No, not in a stump speech.  In a focussed speech targeted at HILLARY's supporters with Hillary by your SIDE.

Don't worry that detractors might say "insincerity, it's self-serving because he's losing and needs them now" or that no way is it going to work, don't even bother -  The ELECTION is at stake.  Nobody needs to rehash what happened in the Primaries and the VP selection, but try to think how your supporters would have felt if you were in Hillary's shoes after a hard fought primary and being skipped over for VP - and you'll know in your heart how they feel.

You've taken it this far to not go take the last measure needed to get the train back on its tracks - a little empathy, humility, sincerity will work. Explain in your own words how you viewed what transpired and REALLY ask them for THEIR VOTE.  

Look up the word 'ELOQUENCE' in the dictionary and your picture is there - we know you can weave the words.  You won't convince all of them but I believe those that have gravitated to McCain/Palin will at least hear you out and you'll get to many of them.  At the very least if they still can't support you - they might not vote at all rather than pulling the lever for McCain, this may be just as important in a close election.

I know you'll do the right thing.

Yes She Can!

Cross posted at REDACTED

Can Sarah Palin unite the Democratic Party? Yes she can! I have been trying to watch the Republican National Convention this week and really the only thing I could force myself to take in, whilst heavily medicated, was McCain's speech. I did choose coffee and chocolate as the main part of my regimen, but I am still on pain killers, and taking one was a serious error.

John McCain's speech was the most boring, annoying, and inadequate speech I have ever heard a nominee of either party give. The only thing that helped me remain awake, was the chatter on mydd and the green screen. I had visions of all of the things Colbert will do with that green screen, and it made me smile.

That was good, because I must say McCain's biography and Fred Thompson's introduction scared me to death. McCain was thankfully boring and not frightening. However I did get these horrible images of Fred Thompson, Joe Leiberman, and John McCain in the White House for the next four years, and had a very nasty zombie nightmare early this morning. I loves me some zombie movies, but perhaps I need to cut back.

I did not watch Palin, as I was out Thursday night. I am not yet prepared to subject myself to Mrs Palin. What I find odd, is that many of the people who tried to say that Obama or Clinton are not experienced or qualified to be POTUS, are giving Palin a total pass. I feel that John McCain's choice of Sarah Palin for VP to be a terribly shameful objectification of women for the purpose of winning the White House. Sarah Palin is the only person running on the national tickets that has not earned her spot. For the republicans to use the worst kind of tokenism is disgusting. Does McCain think he could not die? How does he really think a President Palin would do for America?

Calling all Female Democratic Leadership

Just a quick addendum to an earlier diary.

from New York Times article:

With the McCain-Palin team courting undecided female voters, including some who backed Mrs. Clinton in the Democratic primaries, Obama aides say they are counting on not only Mrs. Clinton but also Democratic female governors to criticize their Alaskan counterpart, Ms. Palin -- and, by extension, Mr. McCain -- including Janet Napolitano of Arizona and Kathleen Sebelius of Kansas.
