Yes, but many of the baby boomer and senior hrc crowd have made it blatantly clear their desire not to vote for Obama because of either some form of unhealthy emotional scarring from this nomination process; and/or an unhealthy fear of disturbing the status quo. Younger voters, mainly who support Obama, made it overwhelmingly clear the desire to support either candidate.
It is more important to have an effective administration than to succumb to the emotional blackmail of her more ardent supporters. The party has to come first and unfortunately, Hillary and Bill will stain his presidency and motivate the right-wing.
Besides, many party leaders and regular democrats are disillusioned with these two. Its Barack's party now..and he needs to do what's best for its future. That means not choosing her. Period.
It just is not true that there hasn't been thorough psychoanalyses of powerful males. Bill Clinton and GWB easily come to mind. Dr. Paul Lowinger, provides an in-depth analysis of his reasoning behind Bill's transgressions, etc. and one can make up their own mind if they agree or not.
I may be alot younger than many of the posters on this site but it boggles my mind why many treat Hillary as if she if above any type of scrutiny, psychological or otherwise. Positive or negative. Just because she is a female candidate? No one has to agree with Ms. Quinn but when you are Hillary Clinton, given her accomplishments, its par for the course. Why is this all so shocking? I hardly think Ms.Quinn is a sexist but a journalist expressing her own subjective thoughts. Maybe my generation is just a little less sensitive about certain issues.
And your political shtick seems to be totally off the mark. Your numbers have no basis in reality and arrogance aside, Barack will choose whomever he wants to be his veep. The sooner you realize that, the less you'll suffer in disappointment later.
Not only would Hillary undermine his presidency, the mistrust factor would hinder his ability to lead effectively.
You know, BO supporters have expressed sympathy and empathy for the losing candidate's supporters but this "my-way-or -the -highway" stuuff is crap and I hope Obama won't stand for it either.How dare anyone subject the leader of the Democratic to this belittling blackmail? And you wonder why many of us want to see her as far from 1600 Pennsylvania as possible?
Have a little respect for him snd stop using melodrama and overemotion as tactic for extortion.
