Debate Over "Popular Vote" Is Not Useful

I cannot believe I got on here today and people are still debating the popular vote in a diary here today.
Look, no matter who you supported in the primary, this debate is not good for our party.
Obama won the majority of delegates in the primary race and is now our presumptive nominee.
As to the popular vote claims of everyone here, there are decent arguments on both sides.
But, you know what the key thing is?
It doesn't matter now.
Whoever got the popular vote -- congrats, good show.
Just stop freaking hashing over it. It only seeks to inflame anger and resentment on both sides and doesn't matter in our fight against McCain.
If you were a Clinton supporter and think she won the popular vote, be happy with your belief and move on.
If you were an Obama supporter and think he won the popular vote, be happy with your belief and move on.
Time to compete against McCain and fight for the values Clinton and Obama stand for. If you continue this stupid fight you are only holding up the healing of the party and the defeat of John McCain.
