I hate to mention the following (but wanted to preface this that just an amateur political observer, and taking advantage of this opportunity to converse regarding the current issues. Also, I am a strong Hillary supporter.):
For all this net roots exuberancy, I wanted to remind you about that Ned Lamont's support from this so-called net roots. I also supported Lamont, I was taken over by the overwhelming support. I can't believe I supported and contributed to the guy, even though I am from California. Now, despite the excitement over the net, HE LOST!!! Will this happen to Obama?
The world does not exist in a vacuum. The net world seems to think that b/c Obama supporters are all here, he will win. Not a guarantee.
The Obama campaign has been very effective - they had effectively made the election a racial divide. Everything that Bill Clinton said was racist, according to the Obama campaign. Bill Clinton's years as President was even suggested as worst than Bush's. Very sad. In the last 28 years, we've never had the kind of prosperity that we had during the Clinton years. But, the Obama campaign has obliterated it beyond recognition. Very sad.
Hopefully, this is not to the detriment of the Democratic Party.

Well, how about electability of Obama? Do you think we will win with him? A strong body of evidence is now showing that he will have a lot of problems to deal with. Hillry has some problems, but these have been vetted over and over again.
Obama is not a proven entity. Sorry, but that looks like the case. Just on this Wright issue alone, his polls are sinking, I watched the movie Titanic, and what I saw was a dramatic sinking.
How did you know that issues don't matter? Are you trying to belittle my intelligence. Obviously, of coure, you are an Obama supporter.
The issues you mentioned:
Iraq - Doesn't Hillary want to bring our troops home?
Bush tax cuts repeal - We'll, as a related matter, did you notice how Obama is changing his poistion on the capital gains tax? 28%, but now it's 20%. He is taking Hillary's lead on this.
Affordable health care - give me a break! When Obama was still voting "present" in Illinois, Hillary has been fighting for universal health care.
Sensible supreme court - obviously, Hillary will not disappoint me on this.
Women's rights - come on, do you doubt Hillary's stand on this? She owns this issue.
Please don't respond in a threatening manner. If you want issues, speak issues.
Of course, I am a Democrat. Been voting straight Democratic since Dukakis.
All the spin going around are just that, spin. Obama and his gang have been asking Hillary to bow out since practically after Super Tuesday. Obama has not been vetted as of that day. Yes, he was brand new, a breath of fresh air. It turned out, he got bad breath. (sorry for the pun.) Wright, poor judgment, weak, 20 years nodding in the pews, perhaps even jumping up and down, etc.).
I think, a significant portion of us Hillary supporters will, unfortunately, vote for John M. should Obama become the nominee. Obama is toast. I cannot see anything in his resume that will make me confidant he will be an effective President. I've been offered to buy the blue sky by Obama - I am not going to buy it.
