I'm sorry I called Hillary supporters childish and petulant

In the past, I have repeatedly denounced those Clinton supporters, here and elsewhere, who claim that they will not vote for Obama in the fall if he is the nominee. I thought that letting McCain continue Bush's disastrous term just because Hillary was one of the many candidates who didn't win the nomination is just plain dumb.
I'm sorry I ever thought that. I now join the ranks of those I previously called "childish."
I will not vote for Hillary Rodham Clinton under any circumstances.
After seeing what she has done about the gas tax holiday, and hearing her parrot the words of George W. Bush, sneering at "experts" and pushing an idea that is considered stupid by everyone except those who don't know any better, I can't even think about voting for her without wanting to throw up.
It probably won't matter. Obama has the nomination wrapped up, and if she keeps fighting after June 15, I'm sure Obama will stop being nice and start shredding her with all of her vulnerabilities that have yet gone unexplored, like the donors to the Clinton Library. Besides that, my state is guaranteed to go for McCain.
Still, I will root for a McCain victory if Clinton is the nominee, because it is worth four more years of Bush to finally break the death grip that those two have on the Democratic Party. These people must be marginalized, Hillary must be pushed to the back bench to sit next to John Kerry, and we must be given a chance to try again in four years instead of the eight years we would have to wait if she wins the White House.
So to everyone who vowed to vote for McCain, I apologize. I am one of you now.
