I would be curious to know as I said else where- if this coattail arguments had any legs- how a candidate who isn't in his homesstate in a GOP district would fair with Obama's support. To me that would be a real test rather than in his home state.
Please stop spamming. Respect is something you earn. Taking over a diary to take credit for a victory earned by another isn't something to be respected. It's your typical attempts to deflect from your own bad behavior.
Please give it a rest. It's precisely this behavior that is off putting to those of us who are actually neutral as to whether Clinton or Obama becomes the nominee. I came into this diary to read about something besides presidential politics.
And thus you make the case for why this isn't about the candidates. We don't know what the outcomes will be. What we do know is that the present status quo with regard to process and democratic values isn't acceptable. It's only when you start to jockey for one candidate or another that one feels the need to rationalize.
Exactly the point. He or she sees the candidate name and they assume your underlying thesis was about the candidate. They are unable to process that we are talking bout the underlying value of the right to vote. It's why in his comments to me its a quick "I agree" but then a return to the arguments that rationalize the disenfranchisement.
The onus is on neither of them. It's on the system. What is y our idelogical bent? I am starting to ask that question when I see stuff like this where everything is attributed to the individual action.
the proper response isn't to play reaction for Jerome's action. Its to be concerned over the large issues without rationalizations such as the following "But lets remember one thing, most of the time in Primaries, the majority of people's votes count for nothing. Heck, I'm from CA and my vote has never counted in my lifetime" My first thought is- this justifies what exactly? You seem more dismissive of the bigger picture than concerned about it. You mention and and then go on to talk about the candidates again as if they are relevant to whether democratic principles of voting are happening or not. democracy doesn't = Obama. Sadly, you don't seem to get that. So this is once again with yet anohter supporter of another candidate a waste of my time.
