Surely you're not making the argument that Hillary supporters weren't driven away from Daily Kos and Democratic Underground, and finally MyDD?
We were driven off, not with substantive arguments, but with hateful attacks. I don't know of one website where that happened to Obama supporters.
To those who think we shouldn't even talk about what went wrong during the primary, I ask you do you also think we should just forgive and forget all the wrongdoing by the Bush administration?
There seems to be a serious inability among these 64% you talk about to put themselves in the other person's place. If Clinton had prevailed, you'd all be choirboys? You wouldn't criticize her? Somehow I don't think so.
Many are insisting that Obama did no wrong, walks on water, yada, yada, yada.
The people you mention so dismissively have legitimate grips about what happened in the primary, and they write well about it. You are the poorer for refusing to believe that could possibly have anything worthwhile to say.
Scratching his cheek. Uh huh. In exactly the same way, at the exact same spot on his cheek, at the exact same point in the speech, AT TWO DIFFERENT RALLIES.
He tried to create deniability, and blind people bought it.
He also flicked his shoulder, which I find juvenile, but not sexist, but what I didn't mention that IS, is that at one point in the speech he used the Italian gesture for "fuck you", also referring to Hillary.
Earlier this month, speaking at Tulane University, Sen. Barack Obama, D-Illinois, said this about the attacks coming his way from Sen. Hillarb>y Clinton, D-NY:
"You challenge the status quo and suddenly the claws come out," Obama said.
The CLAWS come out? Really?
Then yesterday Obama told reporters who had asked about Clinton's latest attack ad, "I understand that Senator Clinton, periodically when she's feeling down, launches attacks as a way of trying to boost her appeal."
This kind of dog whistling gave permission to children in his campaign like Jon Favreau to go even further.
Also, Obama never condemned the fierce sexism against Hillary in the media, including the so-called progressive media, documented by Melissa McEwan at Shakesville.
Before you condemn what I say about Obama, think about what you would be saying and how you would say it if Hillary had prevailed. I suggest that it wouldn't be pretty. I don't come close to the vicious hatred that she was objected to.
