• comment on a post Hillary Will Concede On Saturday over 5 years ago
    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.

  • And there's the rub.

    It's all about her, and not unity for the Democratic party.

    It's unfair of her, to drag both her supporters, and Obama's, into limbo-land until she feels "her moment and hers alone" has arrived.

    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.'

    and it's not so much Hillary that bothers me per se, but I'm leery of the fact that Bill comes with her. I just don't know what baggage he has hiding in his closet. Makes me nervous.

    Your diary forced me to google some, and it looks as if the Repugs think these smears are working,
    so they are not giving up.

    I hope he can weather this, and hopefully his storm will pass soon.

    the Republican smears regarding Al's writings?

    I don't hear much about his race since I'm in Oregon, and I don't always remember to Google news on Al. Anyway, it's much better to have a first-hand account.

    Her Own Campaign!

    Spell Check Police Alert! Who is most responsible for the Clinton lose (s/b loss)

  • What Dems would do this, and why, and what's the scenario you're envisioning?

    I can't even begin to tell you how many times I thought that same thing when reading comments and diaries after Edwards dropped out. It seemed that everyone but me had already taken sides.

    It took me over 2 months to reach a decision on which of the last two I would support.

    Were the situations reversed, I would feel as you do now, except that I would have no reservation whatsoever in voting for Hillary.

  • 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.

    but I just can't let this pass:
    He didn't need those delegates.
    So the compromise isn't fair, because he didn't NEED the delegates?

    Unity and conciliation is exactly what occurred. I'm stunned that you would say that.

  • and I think my brain is fried.

    I didn't say it was an "attack" by Bill, but if you want my opinion, I think it was more along the lines of darn stupid, petty, and childish.

    What I didn't, and don't, understand is why you called it a hypersensitive DIARY?

  • I'm not sure I understand what you mean.

    2 Senators for McCain Leave Group After Ads
    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!!
