Why are we fighting the primary wars again?

People, come on.
This is not helpful, necessary, constructive, or positive. There's a reason Obama has a strong vetting team for the VP slot - to find stuff that we don't know about possible candidates. I have no interest in second-guessing a process that I'm not a part of.
There are valid reasons for Clinton to be VP, and valid reasons for her not to be. I personally think Wes Clark is the best for the slot, but it's not my call. Nor is it something I should be getting invested in. Find a race or contest to get invested in where you can actually make a difference - there are lots of local candidates who could use some help.
Let Obama's team do its job, and lets stop fighting the primary wars. There are too many constructive subjects to write on that don't get enough attention - Congressional races and current policy issues, such as the Medicare vote that Ted Kennedy returned for.Update [2008-7-10 12:43:59 by Falsehood]: - Added Clinton's name, and commendations for those in the comments who have been thoughtful. If you want another idea of an area for Obama to talk about, we can discuss the Party Platform that needs to be written. I've yet to see a diary on that. Thanks for the rec's - rest assured I know I don't deserve them, but that this diary expresses a common sentiment.
