Hillary Is Top Dog for Swing State Dems

Today more than a dozen members of Congress wrote to other Democrats declaring Hillary should be  Top Dog on the Dem ticket for November!! Why?

Because she is the strongest in the swing states and the only democrat who can carry along the down ticket races for democrats all over the country.

Over a dozen members of Congress wrote to other Democrats touting their support for Hillary, saying she is the strongest candidate to have at the top of the ticket in the fall.

Here is there letter from representatives from all over the country:

Dear Fellow Democrat,

We are writing to you because of our shared belief in our Party's principles and our commitment to ensuring that we have the strongest possible nominee to lead our ticket against John McCain and the Republicans in November.

The decision about who to support to be our Party's nominee is not one that any of us should take lightly. We haven't. But, after giving this important decision a great deal of thought, we are convinced that Hillary Clinton has the vision, skills and commitment to make the changes our country needs. As Democrats who have run and won in competitive Congressional districts and battleground states, we believe that Hillary is best positioned to successfully lead the Democratic ticket in districts and states like ours around the country.

As you know, Hillary has racked up victories in bellwether states like Ohio , Pennsylvania and now Indiana that are absolutely vital to winning the White House and maintaining our Congressional majority in the fall. Hillary has won the big battleground states by connecting with voters whose support we must have to win the general election. Her victories in Pennsylvania and Indiana were all the more impressive after being outspent by as much as two or three to one.

Pennsylvania was not just a victory for Hillary Clinton. It was also a wake- up call for superdelegates, forcing us to ask ourselves two essential questions: 1) Which candidate can carry the magic 270 electoral votes to win in the fall? 2) Which candidate is most likely to help our fellow Democrats in down-ballot races? We believe the answer to both of these questions is Hillary Clinton.

On the first question, Hillary has shown she can win the all-important battleground states like Ohio , Pennsylvania and Florida even while being outspent. This speaks to her ability to connect with voters we must deliver in the fall, including blue collar Democrats who can sway this election as they have in the past.

On the second question, Hillary has won rural and suburban districts which we as Democrats must carry to maintain our edge in Congress. Of the fifteen districts rated "toss up" by the Cook Political Report, Hillary has now won ten. Of the 20 districts we picked up in 2006 that had gone for President Bush just two years before, Hillary has now won 16. She is strong in the places we must win to hold and expand our majority.

This is a historically close race. The candidates are separated by a mere percentage point or two and the path to victory for each candidate is the same: win in the upcoming states and secure enough pledged and automatic delegates to get to the number required to win the nomination.

The race now turns to the remaining six contests where the focus will be squarely on the economy. Voters in our states and across the country are voting on issues that affect them, their communities and their children's future. We believe that they will decide that Hillary is the candidate who best understands those issues and has the best solutions to address them.

We Democrats are justifiably proud of both of our candidates, and if Senator Obama is our Party's nominee, we will enthusiastically support him. But our responsibility is not to choose simply to support the eventual nominee; it is to help select the nominee who is best for our party and best for our country. Our choice is clear: Hillary Clinton is that candidate. We believe she should be your choice as well.

Thank you for consideration.

Sincerely,

Rep. Michael Arcuri (NY-24)
Rep. Shelley Berkley (NV-01)
Rep. Marion Berry (AR-1)
Rep. Henry Cuellar (TX-28)
Rep. Kirsten Gillibrand (NY-20)

Re: Hillary Is Top Dog for Swing State Dems

You seem to think that the Clinton supporters on this site, hold some kind of super power over all clinton suppoters. This place is a bubble and a very small one. They have ZERO influence on the population at large. And if people are posting on this DEMOCRATIC site, are threating to vote McCain, then they should get the hell off this site. At this point, if you are not voting for the DEMOCRATIC NOMINEE, on this site you will be considered a TROLL.

Excellent

at least there are some people who are thinking about the General and the need to win this election against McCain.

I thank these members of congress for not taking the easy way out--which they could have.  Apparently the win in the General is more important that jumping on the bandwagon.

Well said 4justice, thank you

The widespread belief among Obama supporters that he will have an easy time beating McCain in the  general election is astonishing.

If you look at the support for Obama, he'll have a steep uphill battle winning the two biggest swing states - Ohio, because it is blue-collar, and Florida, because it is elderly. Some even believe he should just write off Florida and focus his energies elsewhere.

What now?

I am pretty sure he is going to be the nominee, and for argument's sake, assuming he is, how do you begin to rally the support of Clinton loyalists?  Obviously you cannot win an election as a Democrat without support from both constituencies, so again assuming he is the nominee, where do we go from here?

If the argument is he has not won yet, I agree, but am posing a looming but hypothetical situation.

by mady 2008-05-09 09:50AM | 0 recs
Re: What now?

I'll take a crack at that?

First, he is telling the Supers, DON'T PUSH HER OUT!

Senator Clinton has a couple of HUGE Victories upcoming, good for her?

Secondly, he will retire her debt from his funding?

Thirdly, when the dust settles, Senator Obama WILL CALL both Hillary and Bill and ask them not only for thier support, but to meet with them, and to help him campaign AND to help him unify the party?

Look, anyone that tells you Obama can win WITHOUT the Clintons is just as crazy as all these Democrats posting how they are going to vote for McCain?

He needs Hillary, and, more importantly, he needs Bill to campaign for him? And, Bill has to be hurting with the upset in the black community?

So, right now, Bill want's Hillary to fight to the last breath?

But, and again this is just my take, if asked NO ONE will campaign harder then Bill for the nominee?

Lastly, the VP?

My take is, WHY would she want it?

IF she is convinced he is going to lose, better to get out of the way?

IF he wins, how old we she be when Obama's term is over?

My take is, she might feel she is either better postitioned to run in 2012 (if he loses) in the Senate, or if he wins, to be come Majority Leader?

Now will that be ENOUGH for her supporters?

A lot of them, folks like LinFar and Little Otter and all those crazies at Hillaryis44, nope, I think they will do ANYTHING they can to punish Obama for taking away Hillary's presidency?

But, SOME of the Clinton loyalists can be won over.

I think, if he treats the Clintons themselves with dignity and respect, that is a start?

Oh, and lastly, don't confuse Obama with his nutty supporters, especially here?

I don't judge Senator Clinton by what I have read here.....

by WashStateBlue 2008-05-09 10:05AM | 0 recs
Re: What now?

That is definitely a start.  The snottier Obama supporters need to chill, I agree.  

I think you are right about Hillary and Bill and mending bridges directly there.  I'm not sure how possible it will be, this campaign has been so unique in taking two totally underrepresented groups and giving each a shot at the presidency; it was bound to be a pretty desperate situation. The two of them have spent their lives working for this party though, and when respect is offered and help requested, I am sure they will come through.  

I think it would take me a while to get my good will back if I were on the losing side of this, and it just seems very condescending to offer anything to Hillary's supporters until this plays out and everyone has made their decision on what their stance will be in the general election.  I hope that we do not lose too many Democratic voters.

Re: What now?

Oh, I agree with you, but you just can't tell anyone who to vote for, people come to it on their own.  Voting is as much about comfort and affinity as about logic.

And by the way, as someone for whom the death  panalty issue is way at the top of my concerns, I am not really happy with Bill Clinton's appointees.  I would hope for better from either Hillary or Obama, both of whom stand to the left of Bill, although neither has a particularly good stand on criminal justice issues.

Re: Hillary Is Top Dog for Swing State Dems

She is supposed to win those two states big. She'll net about 15 delegates, and still lose the nomination because its not nearly enough to catch him.

Obama wins Oregon, South Dakota, and probably Montana. She also wins (the non-GE voting) PR. She still loses.

Re: Hillary Is Top Dog for Swing State Dems

If I never hear or see phrases like important states and important voters again I'll die a happy man. The reason Barack Obama is where he is in this contest is because he has worked hard in every state and for every vote. All states and all votes are important.

And with respect to Congresswoman Hooley perhaps she should check the polling in her own state which shows Senator Obama carrying it easily and Senator Clinton barely hanging on to it. Of course she is retiring so maybe she feels she can insult Oregonians by continuing this nonsense about important states and important voters.

Re: Hillary Is Top Dog for Swing State Dems

Age has played a huge role in this election, and in my (admittedly totally unscientific) survey of voter opinion I've noticed something striking: many voters who are over the age of 45 basically think Obama can't win because he's black; many voters who are under the age of 45 find the above concept incredibly insulting (and not just to their candidate but the nation at large).

We'll find out.  The best reason for optimisim: not only do the Dems have a ten-point advantage in party id over the Republicans this year, but in all of the head-to-head matchups which show Clinton and Obama, respectively, going against McCain, since the primary started there has been this group, approx. 10%, of Dems who said they'd vote for Clinton but not Obama--and STILL Clinton and Obama are basically running neck and neck against McCain.

What's happening?  Obama gets more indies and crossover Republicans.  The Dems have a very strong wind behind them this year.  So, while I'm certainly hoping Dems will unite behind Obama if he's the candidate, if some fraction of Clinton dead enders won't do this 1) Obama could still win; 2) these Clinton supporters will be following through on a threat they've really made (according to polls) since before January.

What I find a tad depressing is the prospect that some Clinton supporters will want Obama to lose, from some feeling that this might "clear the deck" and allow Clinton to run again in 2012.  Simple story.  If Obama loses because Dems take a dive, this will show up in polling, clearly, and this rift will survive past the election.  Obama, clearly, is not Kerry (about whom most Dem voters, let's face it, were rather ambivilent).

Not expecting the above will change any minds, of course, but Clinton's political viability, at this point, probably turns on Obama supporters thinking she did everything she could to get him elected (just as his chances to win the general depend upon her doing this).

Each needs the other.  Both could cause the other to fail.  And if the latter happens, this would be no accomplishment.  

by IncognitoErgoSum 2008-05-09 09:59AM | 0 recs
Actually, this is fine. Nobody is taking seriously

at this point any argument that Barack Obama should be denied the nomination through some electability argument.

Battle on. Hillary will take West Virginia and Kentucky by large margins, and it won't matter a wit. It's expected, and it's baked into everyone's calculations.

As for bringing the party together. There are Hillary supporters we will never bring into the fold. Linfar and Texas Darlin might be in that group but who knows. I have hope. :-) However, they are not typical. Most Hillary supporters are reasonable people who know that any difference between Obama and Clinton is dwarfed by the difference between either and McCain. Will there be a "spite vote"? Sure. But there's not much you can do about that and it will be really small.

The way forward is to focus on McCain and make our case. By June we'll be comparing Obama and McCain, scheduling Obama/McCain debates and working really hard to put a Democrat in the White House. Everyone is welcome to help, but it's entirely voluntary.

If Clinton supporters want Obama supporters to respect them and treat them civilly then they need to stop acting totally irrational about the political state of affairs right now.

The same way that the supers are informing Hillary that she can stay in this "race" or let's say keep competing in contests (for the race is over) as long as she doesn't continue to smear Obama. If she does, than they will urge her to leave.

I think, though that she will choose to behave rationally, as should her supporters.
