last night. You know, without it 'leaking out' two days in advance.
As thrilled as I am that Obama has won the nomination, I have mixed feelings about, well, everything. I can't help but feel a terrible sadness for her, her family, and her supporters. It's such a tough road of emotions for anyone to have to travel.
We are all caring people, who happen to call ourselves Democrats, striving for pretty much the same things. I hope we can start the healing process now and begin to move forward to the REAL fight.
But ya gotta know that even if he (or she for that matter) were clean, it just seems like that choice would be like waving a red flag in front of a bull, which would make it a miserable GE period. I'd much prefer to start 'fresh.'
I was for Edwards initially, and even stated that I would write in his name on my May 20th ballot when he 'suspended' his campaign.
I stopped commenting on blogs for months. I truly did not know which one of the two I wanted to support.
Give it some time. You may not think so now, but when the GE begins in earnest, and if you're a true Democrat, you'll get behind the Democratic nominee when it comes to defending them (and the party), against McSame.
I really don't see how any true Democrat could think otherwise.
Senators Joseph I. Lieberman and Lindsey Graham, prominent surrogates for Senator John McCain's presidential campaign, stepped down Wednesday from their positions with an independent group that released a pair of Internet advertisements attacking Senator Barack Obama on Iraq. [snip]
After inquiries from reporters, the senators released a joint letter to Vets for Freedom on Wednesday saying they had requested a leave from their positions to come into compliance with the new policy.
And just to tickle your funny bone:
"This is obviously something we're working through," said Brian Rogers, a spokesman for the McCain campaign. "This is the kind of thing that happens when you have the strictest possible policy on these issues."
Ah no, this is the kind of things that happen when you get CAUGHT!!
