The ONLY Question is "Who Best Can Beat McCain?"

Hillary is actually the glue. Bill was a Walmart Greeter who had the gift of the gab but who was morally bankrupt sexually etc.
This is my first and last Diary, I'm 61 and a white male who emphatically wants a Dem to WIN in November. I don't care about race or gender or age issues. I'm Left of Centre on social issues and right of centre on many other issues.
I'm anti-gun, pro choice, do not feel threatened by gay marriage concept, have $, have 2 degrees and strongly believe that it is an American Tragedy of the first order that millions of folks do not have health care
I was "for" the Iraq Invasion becuase I belived that the liklihood was very high that Saddam had WMD. I think that GWB is one of the WORST Presidents of all time-and a national embarassment at that.
Why do I feel the need to write down my thoughts here? Beacause I think that too many Dems have it wrong. This should NOT be about age or gender or race -and it should NOT be about "turning the page" vs the 'establishment. This IS about WHO can best beat McCain in November. Everything else is a smokescree, We Democrats have often found a way to shoot ourselves in the foot by staying true to our 'core values' in the Primaries only to see that we have played into the GOP's hands and we Lose the General!
Simply put--When I cross that bridge to do battle with the 'enemy' on the other side waiting for us in Nov I want ot make sure that we have the best ammunition and the best scrapper that can be found--Cause we can;t go back !!
McCain in my judgment will easily defeat Obama in Nov once the real deal gets going--forget all these silly polls done now re Obama vs McCain or HRC vs NcCain--that's highly naive and also VERY premature!
He will have a much harder time vs Hillary in the end--She will neutralize his war/ terrorist calling cards and by the Fall folks will be worried about the economy and women will shift furthur to Hillary (amoung the 10% swing between the 45% given's on either side)--"If we don't do it now, it will be lost for generations" type of thinking---as long as Hillary can be viewed as not a typical far left leaning Liberal and appeal to conservative values at the margin
Folks--Get with the program here--this is a BIG deal--Do not fall for this "change" junk that the Obama side is pushing--In every Pres election there is ALWAYS a 'change' thing--in the real world of rough and tumble politics, a blood sport, we MUST have Hillary !! when we do battle in November
I've been a HRC supporter for 3 months now--WHY?--Mainly because My sense is that she can and will make us proud when we cross that river. She is a fighter and contrary to many folks who keep saying she is Too Polarizing to win ,the truth is that the alternative (Obama) will get eaten alive even if some of us feel mesmerized by his oratory etc etc
Hillary is actually the glue here--Bill had so much going for him but of the two was more morally bankrupt (zipper). Hillary is the brains as well as the substance here !!--my take anyway
