    Thank you for sharing that.  FWIW, when I was in my undecided stage, it seemed that any time I mentioned McCain, people looked like they were going to slap me.  Today, that's good news.

    The pettiness was not the reason I considered McCain.  The doubts raised about Obama's ability to lead were legitimate and stayed with me long after the primary.  The haven't vanished but if I had to roll the dice, obviously it's with a "Democrat I'm not sure I know truly" v. a "Republican I don't trust."    

  • Three cheers.  I went to school in the Philly burbs.  The suburbs of Philadelphia are too smart for McCain (as they were too smart for Bush in 2004).

    I never carried the "PUMA" label.  The acronym itself is a little vulgar.  Party unity is a good thing.  I would have liked to see more grace from Obama towards Hillary and her supporters over the course of the summer, but it seems over time there has been a natural coalescence of the two.  Hillary seems sincere when she supports him now (at first, great a job as she did, it was obviously bittersweet for her).  Obama has been very kind to Hillary recently without being "forced" to.  

    Anyway, for me, the proper avenue for redressing grievances in the primary are reforming the primary system, boycotting entities that were intolerable (MSNBC/Kos), and continuing to advocate for respect and understanding of Hillary, her causes (health care in particular), and women in general.  Punishing the United States and the whole world with another Gooper president and "Bush in a dress" (I'm sorry "Bush with lipstick" ha!) as VP, possibly president, is not going to help anything.  

    Some people on the internet (obviously not all) I felt were condescending in their support of Obama, but that's such a petty concern and a  disagreement online shouldn't have consequences with such drastic ramifications (drastic meaning voting for the GOP).

    I'm voting for Obama, but with his background in writing & communication, I find it hard to believe his word associations are inadvertent.  He knows what he's doing.

    That's great!

    I don't know... That's so subjective!

    Hillary's earlier advisers were complete idiots, Mark Penn especially.  Her campaign from March onwards was very well done, especially Pennsylvania.

    I'm not in love with Obama and wish he would have been engaged with tougher questions, but he has the D next to his name.

    In my day to day life, I almost never think about the primary or the culpable agents in resolving FL/MI in a flagrantly unfair manner.  My opinion hasn't changed, but it's very much in the background.  So I'm sure that months and years from now, it will be even less prevalent while asinine GOP indifference to American life would be annoying me constantly.  And the scars on the judiciary would probably not heal until I'm in my twilight years.

    You weren't too harsh.  Everything you said came from a noble intent.  hugs back

    It's wonderful that you feel the need to restate your humble opinion FOR THE RECORD! (I guess?), but I don't share it and see no point in rehashing perennially irreconcilable arguments from the primary season three weeks before the general election.

    Your sour condescension tempts a response, but any argument I would craft would come at the expense of the nominee I am now supporting.
