    I said it before, HRC and her supporters didn't come this far for Sarah Palin to take advantage of their hard work.

  • comment on a post P & VP Thread over 5 years ago

    Hillary Clinton and her supporters didn't put 18 million cracks in the glass ceiling for Sarah Palin to take advantage of all the hard work HRC and her supporters did...

    Sarah Palin is NO Hillary Clinton. Shame on her for trying to take advantage of Hillary's extraordinary campaign.

    PS: Been an Obama supporter since 2007...

  • What is one meant to imply when you make a statement claiming that her supporters ARE the party? It is logical to assume that you look down upon the other members of the party that did not support here.

    I'd think you'd not insult NJ so much, since the establishment in NJ is all VERY MUCH behind Hillary. Jon Corzine and Robert Menendez have been some of her BIGGEST supporters.

    But, I'll consider your tirade as somewhere between the 1st and 2nd stages of grief just as I said about Jerome's post the other day.

  • It's all good! :)

  • Except it is based on the revelation that Obama feels he has the private backing of 120 of the remaining uncommitted Super delegates.

    Which, would put him (using his numbers) 40 delegates away from the nomination.

    Cliche? No.
    Reality? Yes.

  • HER supporters ARE the party?
    I'm a proud, working class WHITE American and I am a PROUD Democrat and I am NOT a supporter of HRC. Her supporters ARE NOT the party. They are part of the party. Barack Obama's too. As are John Edwards', Dennis Kucinich's, Bill Richardson's, Joe Biden's, Chris Dodd's, and even Mike Gravel's.

    Your claim that HER supporters ARE the party is arrogance.

    And if you and people like you ARE the party (as you claim), how could you EVER vote against the Democrat?

    The people will vote, as they have every right to vote. I voted in the 2004 NJ Primary, held in June. I wrote in Howard Dean as he wasn't even on the ballot in NJ due to the late stage of the game. I voted for who I believed in.

    HOWEVER, that doesn't mean the REALITY of the situation changed. John Kerry was the nominee. I didn't vote for him, I didn't support him in the primary, but he was the man we had to beat George W. Bush.

    That is the case now. All of you can go vote for Hillary if you please. I am expecting HUGE wins in Kentucky and West Virginia. That doesn't change the reality that this is over. Obama will certainly get the 33 pledged delegates he needs to get the majority in that column. Obama needs a total of 160 delegates to get the nomination. He gained, by the AP count, 9 Super delegates yesterday. By the ABC and Politico count, he has taken the Super delegate lead. He's being called "the presumptive nominee" by a Clinton loyalist (Rahm). He's being treated like a rock star by Clinton backers during his contact with them (see his House visit as reference).

    IT IS OVER.

    The sooner we realize that, the sooner we can try and repair the party and the sooner we can beat McCain.

    Five Stages Of Grief

      1. Denial and Isolation.
          At first, we tend to deny the loss has taken place, and may withdraw from our usual social contacts. This stage may last a few moments, or longer.
       2. Anger.
          The grieving person may then be furious at the person who inflicted the hurt (even if she's dead), or at the world, for letting it happen. He may be angry with himself for letting the event take place, even if, realistically, nothing could have stopped it.
       3. Bargaining.
          Now the grieving person may make bargains with God, asking, "If I do this, will you take away the loss?"
       4. Depression.
          The person feels numb, although anger and sadness may remain underneath.
       5. Acceptance.
          This is when the anger, sadness and mourning have tapered off. The person simply accepts the reality of the loss.

    I had to post that. Why?
    Because Jerome, and MANY others, is definitely dealing with denial and anger at this point and time.

    She's up by about 32K votes.
    I think she's got Texas.
    And she'll get PA.
    And the nomination.
    BUT McCain gets the Presidency.
  • on a comment on New Texas Results Thread over 6 years ago

    I'm an Obama guy, but the Clintons still run the show.
    They dictated the message in Ohio and Texas.
    She won Rhode Island.
    He's not going to get that magic number 64% in Vermont.

    The Clintons are running the show.

  • comment on a post Hillary Clinton Victory Speech over 6 years ago
    I don't agree with the solutions she offers.
    I don't trust her.
    If she is the nominee, I'm very tempted to vote for McCain.
  • on a comment on New Texas Results Thread over 6 years ago

    BUT will those crossover GOP and Independents like her in a general?

  • on a comment on New Texas Results Thread over 6 years ago
    The Clintons ARE STILL the Democratic Party.
    I think she will be the nominee after tonight.
  • on a comment on New Texas Results Thread over 6 years ago
    Dallas County - 35% in.
    TRavis County - 31% in.
    Harris County - 1% in.
  • on a comment on New Texas Results Thread over 6 years ago

    She ain't won Texas yet, and her lead is shrinking again.
