    is being promoted here.  

    She does not represent most Clinton supporters who are reasonable, passionate and informed.    This woman, promoted on Fox and now here at MyDD, makes Clinton supporters look foolish, ignorant and nasty.  

    What's the upside again?  

  • on a comment on Clinton Steps Back over 5 years ago

    How sad that Hillary now hopes to break that Glass Ceiling with a gunshot aimed at her opponent.

  • That's nice to know.... But how do you know it?  

  • Yes, it is wonderful to see so many people turn out.  Every American, on any side of any race, should be proud to see this turn out. It means Democracy is alive and of interest by many of our citizens.  

    And Obama has brought in a lot of new hearts, souls, minds and boots on the ground (or fingers on the phone.)   Young people getting engaged like never before.  

    But I'm not sure how many of them will remain engaged if Hillary manages some back-room deal to win the nomination.   It will just take the wind out of their sails and leave them with the feeling that you just can't win in politics.   No matter what you do, the insiders are going to come along and change the rules.    

  • Maybe you missed this from CNN.

    Hillary said it would be a "terrible mistake" for her supporters to vote for John McCain over Barack Obama.

    ...

    "Anybody who has ever voted for me or voted for Barack has much more in common in terms of what we want to see happen in our country and in the world with the other than they do with John McCain," Clinton said on CNN's "The Situation Room."

    "I'm going to work my heart out for whoever our nominee is. Obviously, I'm still hoping to be that nominee, but I'm going to do everything I can to make sure that anyone who supported me ... understands what a grave error it would be not to vote for Sen. Obama."

  • It will not happen.  Obama needs things Hillary doesn't bring to the table (like the ability to unit people and the ability to not repel moderate Republicans.)  

    Stoking this Fantasy is a cruel trick that the right wing is playing on Hillary supporters just to piss them off when it doesn't happen.  

    Sadly, many of her supporters are playing right into this.  

    While there may be some other role for Hillary after this campaign, VP is not it.

    Similarities between Bush and Obama
    They both wear jeans from time to time.
    They have both been photographed wearing cowboy hats
    They are both male
    They both have 1/2 white blood (of course Bush's other half is also white... but that doesn't mean the first half isn't just a white as Obama's.)
    They are both Christians (well, at least Obama is.)
    They both live in the United States
    They both are going to be ex-presidents someday.  

    See... lots of identical characteristics.   I rest my case.  :)

  • Absolutely.   I found it offensive when Charlie Gibson tried to get both Obama and Clinton to "pledge" to take the other as a running mate.  

    This diary is much the same.  

    Obama has run his campaign in unexpected ways.   And he has done quite well.  

    Now that he's won (or all but won), who are we to start demanding that he campaign OUR way?   He's taking a different path and one that may not be clear to us at the outset, but one which might not only lead to a win, but might also lead to a better way of campaigning, leading and relating to the American people.  

  • I never knew one of those.  Do they exist?   Sounds like an obnoxious jerk.  Who would like someone who always cuts in line.

    But... while were on the subject.   I wasn't aware there was a line a person had to wait in to become president.   Where does it form?  If I stand in it long enough, will I automatically become president?  

  • The problem with the idea of Indian being a turning point... or even the latest Wright junk being a turning point... IS that assuming there is a turn, there's not enough room left after the turn for Clinton to pick up enough delegates to clearly win this.  

    A turn will only shave a few points of Obama's delegate lead.   It will not totally reverse all that has happened up to now.  

  • Interesting how above your comment, people are claiming that Joe Andrew doesn't give any reasons.    

    Then you cite two, of the many reasons he gives for backing Sen Obama...  and nobody acknowledges that.  

    Thank you for posting the reasons.

    Here's a link to the letter on dKos.   It is well written, thoughtful and insightful.   Maybe we should all read it before continuing our comments.
