self interest. He was planning to run for the senate and he needed the Illinois Democrats in the congress to support him. Nine out 12 members of Illinois delegation voted against the Iraq war. Obama never voted for any of the anti war resolutions including the one sponsored by Russ Finegold.
Now he is out of those race cards. If you keep repeating that he defeated Hillary you would be deceiving your self. He defeated Hillary only because there was coup in the Democratic party. When hillary was in the contest they never fully wanted to seat FL and MI. Obama is an illegitimate nominee of the Democratic party.
I will vote for him only because he represents the Dem party.
Re: You forgot to mention Obama's race Card! (2.00 / 1)
So, if not voting for Obama....are you staying home, voting only down-ticket, or voting for McCain?
And, are you actively working to see Obama defeated?
If voting for McCain and/or actively working to see Obama defeated....why bother posting on a Democratic site committed to seeing Democrats elected?
Now, as to your assertion that 'Obama and his surrogates take every opportunity to insult Hillary'....what a load of crap! I see Obama and his surrogates on tv dozens of times a day...plenty of opportunities to 'insult Hillary'...yet, no insults! None. Zero. Zip. Zilch.
So, again...your purpose here is what?
Case in point McCaskill, kerry, Pelosi how many more do you need. Read yesterday's NY times. I find it really insulting that they should leak the information to NY times that Hillary was never in consideration. They could have made that announcement long back.
He only ran a deceptive campaign shamelessly playing the race card on the Clintons. He should thank the MSM for acting as surrogates in the primaries. According to the Gallup likely voters poll he is trailing McCain.
