Steve, you are so right. Repubs focus the heartland on God, guns and gays and call the democrats baby killers. Add the fear of terrorists and taxes into the mix and that is basically their entire platform. They can not run on their record. They are failures at governing. <br />
<br />
I'm getting so nervous about the outcome of this campaign. Hillary has demonstrated that she is a strong candidate with a very loyal base. Obama is bringing badly needed new people into the party. We can not afford to allienate either of these camps. What to do? How about this? Unite. A dream team ticket. And since the young Obamites will be heartbroken and resentful and probably abandon the party if he does not head the ticket, give it to him. Cheney has increased the power of his office into almost a co-presidency anyway. Hillary can accomplish much as Vice-president. A win/win situation. No? Yes? I wonder what is going to happen.

There are many Obama voters who are "fair weather" democrats, some former Republicans. Clinton supporters are mostly life long democrats. It's excellent that Barack has inspired so many people to become part of the electoral process but, I have to be honest, it does hurt that she and we are probably going to be swept to the side. Oh well, we will remain faithful to our ideals and hope the youngsters will do the same as time goes by.<br />

I just hope this politically diverse coalition he has amassed can help steer this country more towards the middle. To do that we are going to have to turn left for a while, since we are so far right now. It worries me if Obamites have a specific vision and will stay on board or will they drag their feet?

your right she did not need to drag obama down, i think she got flustered, she and obama didn't see any of this coming, nobody did, it was a bucket of cold gatorade dumped on her head. i can not believe that if she would of been elected that she would of intentionally dragged this country into the manure hole that wer'e in now. it just absolutely baffles me though that when she did make disparaging remarks that she was called out on it, all anti-clintonites discredit every move she makes, hell she couldn't even stand by her man right for you people. she took a vow "for better or for worse" and followed through on it, thats charachter people, thats commitment, she was hung out to dry in view of the whole world and held her ground. i should not expect no less from his supporter base though, 50% divorce rate, oh your farts stink, i want a divorce, or every time they gat a hardon they want to post it on the internet, or saline baggies sewn into their chest, i'm sure they could not understand the concept. she tries and does make a difference in this world, i respect that. another thing that ****'s me off is that if she would of pulled this off that obama supporters were going to withold their votes come general election time, what a bunch of whiny *** bitchs. i will vote for obama at general election time, keeping in mind the bigger picture.

I heard hillary talk today and she talked about the issues. I wondered why she never fought her whole campaign that way. Why did she have to drag Obama down. He's not substantively different from her. Why did she propose that he should be her running mate? Maybe she realizes that she can't do it without him. <br />
The electoral split is too even. Too bad. She's lost my vote and millions of others.

She always talks about the issues. But the media features controversial sound bytes over everything else she says. I think she proposed a "team" ticket because she knows how badly some democrats want it. Give the people what they want.

I use the term "fighting" in its connotation as a tenacious striving for or goal; not as in a hostile aggression. Note the preposition "for", not "against".<br />

My conscience tell me I must learn from my life experience and, certainly, not rely on pie in the sky rhetoric to persuade me. Senator Obama needs to say exactly what he can do for me and my family if he wants me to help him get the job.

Unless I am mistaken, isn't "fighting" what kept Hillary's health care reforms from passing in the 90's? Isn't "fighting" what got us into a unilateral action against a sovereign nation that we can't get out of? Isn't "fighting" the reason why we lost the House and the Senate in the '90's? And, isn't "fighting" the reason that our government can't seem to get anthing accomplished whatsoever today? Haven't we had enough of the fight, and seek someone to unite...? This certainly isn't Hillary, the Mike Tyson of the democratic primary... We have a choice; we have hope... vote your conscience, vote Obama.
