To all who still hold out "hope" for Hillary Clinton to be nominated as Prez or VP or are just so pissed off that you will do anything to harm Barack Obama and Joe Biden and in doing so, also hurt this country.... PLEASE stop!
Hillary Clinton wants all of us to back Barack Obama and Joe Biden. The longer this puma nonsense goes on, the more it will damage Hillary Clinton personally, politically and professionally.
Hillary Clinton to urge release of delegates

WASHINGTON - Hillary Clinton is expected to release her delegates and urge them to vote for Barack Obama...
"She is going to strongly encourage everyone to support Obama," said a party official made aware of Clinton's plans.
Recent polls shows that the majority of Clinton backers already have moved into the Obama camp, but there are still some rogue holdouts the Clintons hope to convert - or at least silence.
Clinton's former chief strategist Geoff Garin, a pollster by trade, said last week that about 18% of Clinton's supporters say they won't vote for Obama and will back John McCain.
Clinton is set to meet with her pledged delegates and urge them to support Obama, even though she will have her name symbolically in the roll call vote on Thursday.
"She ran a great campaign and she has earned the roll call vote," said a top Obama aide.
It sounds like she does not want her delegates to vote for her at all. I believe she would like to make this a quick and painless event, so that we Democrats can move forward with getting Obama/Biden elected and start fixing this country.
In response to mccain's ad using Hillary Clinton to attack Obama and Biden:
CLINTON PRESS OFFICE RESPONSE TO MCCAIN AD
The following is a statement released today by Hillary Clinton's Spokeswoman Kathleen Strand in response to the McCain campaign's new ad "Passed Over."
"Hillary Clinton's support of Barack Obama is clear. She has said repeatedly that Barack Obama and she share a commitment to changing the direction of the country, getting us out of Iraq, and expanding access to health care. John McCain doesn't. It's interesting how those remarks didn't make it into his ad."
I found that little gem at the website for one of the biggest puma people. She also had this to say: (found by politicsmatters)
Mac's latest ad using footage of Hillary stepped over a serious line. Shes a big girl and can fend for herself. She doesn't need McCain to take up her part re: BHOs veep selection. Hell, for all he knows, BHO offered it to Hillary and she turned him down.
don't use Hillary to attack another Democrat. She deserves better than this, she really does.
And when a blogger disagreed with her, she pointed out that the Republicans are not the Clintons' allies or friends.
Hillary was right to speak out against the way the repugs used her in an ad. After the witch hunts the pugs led against her and Bill, I don't blame her for objecting to this BS.
The puma, noted above, has not come around, but this is a bit of a good sign.
