Congratulations Clinton Democrats, we had the FINAL laugh

This diary is not about Obama, so I hope the trolls wont rush in to add their "insights" and start troll rating me since I am not praising their chosen one.

To my fellow Clinton Democrats, we have FINALLY prevailed over our enemy, the partisan republican hacks. Day in day out they belittled Bill clinton as a person and president. The word Clinton was enough to send the wingnuts into boos. But today, they FINALLY recognized that president Clinton was one of the ggreatest and was instrumental in passing lot of bipartisan reforms.

And with this, since President Clinton was given utmost respect and accolades, he rightly deserved by the repugs on their convention floor, I hereby declare victory over the idealogical warfare we were engaged in over past decade and half. Time for all of us to open a bottle of champagne and celebrate the victory. yeehaw!!!

Update: I am NOT fighting the primary battles as some have suggested.. we lost.. you won.. you have my support.. however you dont have my enthusiasm.. that said today was truly glorious day!

Update: reviews pouring in. Bill’s is probably the first president to be applauded at both party conventions in the same year

Update: Our war is not with Obama supporters at all, as some in comments section have indicated. Our war is with wingnuts and repugs.. and we hereby take the batton of victory :D:D

so close

This would be a very nice diary if you hadn't gone the "chosen one" route.

Now your almost very nice diary makes you look like a petty asshole.

Lastly, yes the Clintons are awesome and screw the repugs.

Re: Call me again in 2010

Or better still, go to one of their meetings and tell them yourself how happy you are that they finally agree what good leaders they are.

seriously

a little rephrasing of this dairy can actually end our post-primaries battles being fought and re-fought over and over. However I did find it ironic that on the RNC convention floor Joe Lieberman was appealing to independents and Clinton democrats. In fact the last few days the Republcians could not praise the Clintons enough. It is truly ironic and testifies to their leadership and the battles they fought through the 90s. But right NOW it is time for us to elect a Democratic president and he is Barack Obama.

Much

more effective diary without the attack on Obama.  I happen to agree, it was funny to see the Repubs cheering the Clinton years.

there is mounting evidence that Republics

are just way more stupid them Democrats.

You are a shining example of that theory.

I have yet to see ONE posts of yours that wasn't some borrowed hackneyed idea, poorly delivered, sloppy and stale.

You are, to put it mildly, a bore.

Can't you just go hang with the other boring Republics from now on?

So if I didn't support Hillary in the primary I can't be a Clinton Democrat?

Your attack is petty and uncalled for and ruins what could of been a perfectly decent diary. You fail.

Re: Congratulations Clinton Democrats, we had the

I didnt say if you didnt support Hillary you werent clinton democrat.. if you hadnt accused Bill and Hillary of racism and other despicable charges like some extremists here and dailykos, then yes you are a part of the people who truly respect Bill.. and this is definitely a cherished victory for you too

Re: Congratulations Clinton Democrats, we had the

Why don't you take your swipe at the majority of commenters her out of your diary and see if you can get some good responses in here. Hard to take you seriously when you start off by calling Obama supporers cultists ( the chosen one?).

You can't be seriously thinking that.....

Cherished Victory?

How crazy are you folks?

Those people on the Republic convention floor LOATHE the Clintons, just cause Lieberman is playing for bitter Clinton supporters, do you think If Hillary was either the candidate or the VP, they would be praising Bill OR Hill.

Christ, if Obama had lost, they would have made a play for unhappy black voters.

Clueless to how politics work, but any straw you can grasp I guess.

"Clueless to how politics work, but any straw you can grasp I guess."

Yes. Thanks for the condescension. I am glad they finally recognized how bi=partisan efforts by Bill Clinton were truly transformational. Much more transformational than RONALD FIN REAGAN.

You're really not a troll, and you just claimed the Republicans view Clinton more highly than Reagan?

Re: You can't be seriously thinking that.....

when they praise reagan.. they praise him for his partisan ideology.. they praised Bill Clinton for his bipartisan ideology..  IMO bipartisanship trumps partisan ideologues..

Re: You can't be seriously thinking that.....

Blue,

I was not fooled as to why they were playing up the Bill years, it was just funny to watch that they had to play up the Bill years.  Big change from 2000 where they were running against Bill by proxy.

Re: Congratulations Clinton Democrats

We're ALL good Democrats.  I know I was standing up for Bill Clinton in the 90's.  Voting for Barack Obama this time doesn't change that.

Oh, and Palin got severely booed a couple days ago for mentioning Clinton, so... take it for what you will.

Re: Congratulations to anyone but the diarist

Which is why moderate Republicans, and anyone facing a contentious battle for their seat, is avoiding it like the plague. Dude, seriously, if you think the Republicans are applauding Bill Clinton and his record, rather than the strike at the Democrats... Thorazine, just like Alegre. Srsly.

Oh, and Republicans didn't think Mr. Clinton was much of a bipartisan figure, I thought. Wasn't there that whole government shutdown, the showndowns with Newt, accusing him of distracting the media when he was attacking Al Qaeda. Hmm. Well, but we believe you that you're not trolling. Mmhmm. Truly.

The booeing HRC argument

isn't all that great; the Obama event in Michigan with Al Gore AFTER HRC conceded booed the mention of her name by Granholm.

Plenty of Obama crowds booed the mention of her name during the primaries; to be fair, the Puerto Rico crowd booed Obama at her victory speech there.

Re: The booeing HRC argument

yeah thansk for the context.. infact it reminds me that Obama supporters booed Hillary all the way from the start.. jefferson party dinner to day of conceding defeat.. so there atleast wingnuts were booing the opposite party!

Re: The booeing HRC argument

Ahh, I see. Well, then, nevermind. Obviously, it's okay that you're being manipulated by the Republicans since some Obama supporters decide to boo the mention of Hillary Clinton once or twice. Bravo.

Re: The booeing HRC argument

The first intraparty booing I saw was Tennesseans booing Barack Obama during Bill Clinton's speech their the evening of the South Carolina primary.

I understand the need of it, but I do get bored with Clinton voters bringing up every incident that rubbed them the wrong way while we have to keep quiet.  If Obama loses there is going to be one hell of an angry, irrational catharsis on this side.

Brilliant!

I see what you did, post your comment as a diary so you couldn't get trollrated.

P.S. Try not to overdose on bitter pills.

Re: Congratulations Clinton Democrats, we had the

I would be willing to bet there is nothing in the GOP party platform that will echo Bill Clinton's presidency in the least. At least they don't call it Hillarycare all the time now. Maybe just about a fourth of the time.

Though I am encouraged that the GOP trusts the traditional media that they claim to despise so much to inform them on the pulse of the nation. "Hmmm CNN says there is widespread divisions. Must be true!"

That was a shameless pander to disaffected Hillary supporters.

I wouldn't be surprised if the audience was 'prepared' to applaud that line ahead of time.

Politics....the art of the possible.

You've said it very well. As President Clinton often said during those great years of the '90's, "let's don't spend so much time looking for the perfect that we miss out on the good." And the results were some pretty good years for the country....peace and prosperity are hard to beat.

Although the irony is hilarious...

The praise is anything but heartfelt. Had Clinton won they'd be sliming the shit out of her and they'd have a male VP pick. Hell, even Palin was calling Hillary Clinton a "whiner" and now he hails her.

They love the Clintons, except for when they don't

As Sarah Palin discovered:

Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin was booed tonight when she said Sen. Hillary Clinton's name.

At the Consol Energy ballfield in Washington, Pennsylvania, Palin delivered essentially the same biographical stump speech as she did in Dayton, Ohio on Friday, pointing out that it is almost 80 years to the day since women in the United States got the right to vote..

But this time, when she mentioned the women who came before her citing the history-making nomination of Geraldine Ferraro, as well as Clinton's "determination and grace" in the 2008 Democratic primary, boos greeted Palin. They were long and loud near the press section.

Re: They love the Clintons, except for when they

That sounds like they were booing Palin for bringing up Hillary's name, not booing Hillary herself. (As in "You have no right to bring up Hillary Clinton given your political stance on women's issues.")

Re: Congratulations Clinton Democrats, we had the

I wonder if they had to circulate talking points ordering the attendees to applaud.  I didn't catch tonight's performance, but I'm sure that the applause was not sincere.  Still, I suppose it's a symbolic victory.

Re: Congratulations Clinton Democrats, we had the

Responsible adults do not drink and blog. When they do, they say stupid things that they think other people believe. There is no you anymore - get it? There never was a division, just a primary that has long been over. Scab. It's like a scab you're picking because you're drunk. If it's a wart or a mole, you've really bloodied yourself and lost. But you have actually lost it and should stop drinking, okay?

I can agree with you

I support and supported both President Clinton and Senator Obama enthusiastically.  I seem to remember better times under Clinton and after 8 of Bush I sure miss them.
