Obama's "negativity": "I'd make a great President, better than my opponent, and here's why!"
Hillary's negativity: "Obama IS TEH SUX0RS!! SHAME ON YOU BARACK OBAMA!"
There's a big fecking difference. The mentality of the diarist is a mentality of entitlement, when Hillary was going nuts in Iowa after other candidates had the gumption to challenge her coronation. Anyone remember "the politics of pile-on" ?
cultish... I mean come ON... Both candidates are way better than McCain. THAT is what matters. Not whether the next President has a vagina or black skin. That is at best a bonus and at worst leads to extremely petty sexual-racial-identity wars. There are a LOT of reasons to support Obama over Hillary that have nothing to do with her gender. And vice versa regarding race.
In conclusion, consider whether a Democrat or Republican president would be best for feminist causes...
Obama is no more a racist than Hillary is a sexist. With every single word coming out of their mouth being examined for potential misunderstanding, one would expect the occasional gaffe. I don't think Obama resents me for being white, any more than I think Hillary resents me for being male. It's a non-issue. Let's focus on Iraq, health care, the economy, and other REAL issues, please.
a good campaign. While I might wish the campaign had stayed on higher ground for the entire primary, I would gladly support either candidate for President. What matters are the issues, not petty personality cults. Both Obama and Hillary are excellent individuals. After the primary, let's focus on the real enemy, John McCain and the Republicans who have driven our country into the ditch.
