no, no, no

I directed you to a nice and humorous, Pro-Clinton diary I posted, years ago on Kos.

By the way the photo with Dubya leaning in and trying to seem relevant was priceless - no words needed tbh.

Can you blame him?  The Italians were like "Go write an initiative Dubya, we're going clubbing with Bill."

Ah, what it was like to be loved by the world.

We miss you, Bill. :(

Re: As a Clinton fan, you'll love this one.

I remember that, actually. And unlike many Clinton supporters here, I'm not squeamish about DKos, so I appreciate the link. Interesting to read the comments -- a very different tenor to the Clinton talk at the Great Orange Satan back then. Heh.

Re: As a Clinton fan, you'll love this one.

Didn't Kos hate Obama right up until the point where the media annointed him a rising star?

Re: As a Clinton fan, you'll love this one.

He wrote several diaries that were very contrary to the general mood over there. There really isn't any evidence that he actually agrees with Daily Kos, or much of the netroots in general. I think he won support mostly through attrition.

two diaries

he wrote two diaries in September 2005.  

That's it.

What a lot of Hill supporters fail to see, her vote on the war, and her refusal to reverse her opinion, like Edwards, really hurt her.

If Hillary had stood with Al Gore and opposed the war, she would have won the nomination in a walk.

the war vote has had a lasting and significant effect.

Re: two diaries

Do you think many of those folks realize how often and significantly Obama has shifted his stance on Iraq?

I will admit that I had to do a lot of thinking and have a lot of conversations with my friends before I reconciled myself with Hillary on that vote.  And I'll spare you my thought process here.

But I never for an instant equated giving a speech when you had zero accountability or responsibility with actually casting a vote.  (Hell, I gave speeches to my Dad, but I didn't consider that qualifying me for PotUS!)  I have no doubt in my mind that he would have voted, as he always has on Iraq, exactly as Hillary did.  At this point they are advised by the same people, essentially - as much as they would try to suggest otherwise, I don't believe there would be substantial differences in their overall policy abroad.  American foreign policy has actually been pretty consistent through multiple presidencies, if you think about it.

Re: two diaries

That's exactly it. He's even admitted he doesn't know how he would have voted. And didn't he take that speech he gave against the war off his website for awhile because of the political climate? He was afraid he'd made a mistake. And what's funny is, this is how the MSM turned Bill into a racist. He called Obama's position on the war a fairy tale, and Donna Brazile had a fit and accused him of saying Obama's entire candidacy was a fairy tale. Really pitiful. But I swear to god, thanks to our lying, biased media, there are still people out there who think Bill Clinton called an African American's candidacy for POTUS a "fairy tale". Thanks, fourth estate. Thanks a bunch.

They're very well read.

doncha remember, Hill fans bash obama supporters as "intellectuals"

Again, you're ignoring the fact that Edwards was by far the favorite.  Once he dropped out, they slowley walked to the obama camp.

Now, you're implying Edwards supporters didn't know what they were doing.  Edwards base were, working class voters, the kind Hillary says she loved, when she was campaigning in Pennsylvania and ohio.  I guess those sentiment were all a sham.

That wasn't a response :)

I asked if they understood how frequently and how dramatically Obama has shifted his stance on Iraq over the past 4 years, not whether lots of people a DKos supported Edwards.

by bobbank 2008-05-02 09:36PM | 0 recs
yes it was

look at the title: "They're very well read."

which means, yes, they're well informed of everything, you brought up.

Myths about DKOS

there is a myth that DKos was always a big Obama site.

Not true.

On the eve of the Iowa caucus, 4 months ago, Edwards received 48 percent of the vote, 21 pts ahead of Obama.

Until he dropped out, DKos was Edwards occupied territory.

When he did drop out, people moves, slowly, but steadily to Obama.

Obama, for the longest time, was ripped by Dkos regulars, for one thing or another.

It's not like he's Howard Dean, who has alway been universally beloved.

Re: As a Clinton fan, you'll love this one.

It's hard to remember when the change came, but I definitely recall Kos slamming him a few times. He didn't seem terribly enthusiastic to begin with. Even said he was using Republican tactics at one point, I think. And it seemed like things just got worse and worse after Edwards dropped out. Bunch of orange dittoheads over there. I still like DKos, though -- I just stay out of candidate diaries. I hope everything will pretty much go back to normal once a nominee is chosen.

by sricki 2008-05-02 08:57PM | 0 recs
Yeah, when Edwards dropped out

Plus, his speeches after winning Iowa and after losing New Hampshire (yes, we can) were incredibly persuasive, especially among Edwards supporters.

Even Hill supporters posted diaries in appreciation of his words.

Re: Yeah, when Edwards dropped out

I miss Edwards tremendously. I would have been equally happy with John or Hillary. It took me weeks to pick between them in the first place. I'm getting used to Obama, but his healthcare plan still bothers me a lot.

Re: As a Clinton fan, you'll love this one.
Yes. Just like Americablog. Quelle tragedie, those blogs! There is actually a very valid and important point you very simply and succinctly made: Money can buy a lot of things in this country. Just saying, ya know...

Poor little orphan annie oakley

dude, Hillary raised enough dough to buy Fort Knox.

$200 million and counting.  

She raised $10 million the day after Pennsylvanian, which is a new record.

why do clinton supporters like to act as if they were VASTLY outspent.

and don't forget, Hill started out with a 100 percent name identification, as the most famous woman in the world.

Turn the machine off already
The money that Hillary Clinton has raised would not even pay a day's worth of the interest on the trillions of dollars in loans that have taken out from China, among other countries.You do realize that if the Saudis ever decide to not base their oil prices on the dollar, the country will have to file for bankruptcy, right? Besides, I was not talking about Clinton nor Obama. Both blogs that were mentioned had a dramatic shift in, um, tone, when they were exploring revenue producing ideas.

Make fun of her all you want.

That's your right.

I happen to admire Elizabeth Taylor as  the first Hollywood personality to take a public stand against AIDS. Her work in this area has been without compare.

Had she endorsed Obama I'm sure there would be diaries filled with  rose petals and laurel wreaths.

have some testicular fordiute

C'mon. you're so thin skinned, you feel like a grape.

you guys are the ones running around clown suits, screaming "workers of the world unite," every five seconds, and hyping how much you love working class, Reagan Democrats, bashing "San Francisco Democrats," every chance you get.

Re: Make fun of her all you want.
Just a slight addition. She was really the first person with considerable media draw to demand that AIDS be taken seriously. She has raised hundreds of millions of dollars for research, needle exchange programs, women with AIDS, and of course both straight and gay men of all races and ages. One of the most beautiful human beings to grace this Earth, in addition to being very pretty.

This was really bad.  I felt like I'd been spammed into clicking on something I didn't want to see.  

Hopefully the administrators will clean up this fraudulently titled diary.

Actually, I think Louis Farrakhan's is the worst ever. Elizabeth Taylor just happens to have starred in some of the greatest movies to have come out of the late sixties.
