she's doing it Saturday. Her supporters were kind of PASSIONATE, and some of them are kind of angry. They feel she was screwed out of the nomination by the media sexism or the RBC, or their candidate, for whom they worked hard and loved along with her husband is the only one whom they feel could be President. With such passion as high and for as long, she could never ask her supports to just abruptly abandon her. Those supporters are what drove her, she feels attached to them. Her supporters would be too angry if she just abruptly endorsed Obama like a political robot. There needs to be a cool down. That is why she hasn't "conceded" yet.
all the more power to him. All I say is he better get >269 electoral votes. He is no "new" politician. I'll give him credit, he has found new ways to pretend to be a purveyor of "new politics" and "changing the tone"
It boggles me. If it were not for the Clintons neutralizing our party on race-baiting issues like welfare and crime, Obama would not be electable, not to mention we'd still be getting 100 electoral votes like Dukakis.
why didn't anyone say this about Fred Thompson? he didn't concede immediately. Edwards didn't concede immediately. Fred Thompson lost big time, he gave a non-concession speech too. What about Rudy? What is the double standard everywhere?
because you are right, those polls show something. But in November, can a woman and a black man on one ticket get elected together? I mean, don't get me wrong, but this country rejected John Kerry. I think Hillary on the top would be a surefire landslide win this November, but she most likely will not get the nomination (voting is not until 8/2008). On the bottom tho, if they're together, I can only imagine the racist innuendo too, compounded on what Obama is gonna get alone being black. The GOP could spread rumors of "Hill cheats on Bill with O" and spreading rumours of interracial adultery would be doom. We saw what happened in Tennessee with Harold Ford. But if Hillary does help put states in play, then its still a chance.
the Democratic, no the American voters vetting Bill Clinton twice. The Whitewater committees and the impeachment, of which he was found not guilty is enough vetting for the 42nd President of the United States, and the only Dem President in the last 27 years. He IS special. He needs no vetting.
a concession speech as good or better than Mitt Romney's at CPAC. While I of course disagree and laugh at everything he said, he sucked it up, and got lockstep behind McCain, while keeping his dignity and not throwing his values away. watch the vid, I think Hillary can top this AND sound genuine, but this is a good role model for her
I mean, this sounds nice for the 2008, but say the 2010 elections are tough, and we need lobbyist/PAC money, do we keep the rule? The truth is, the special interests are never going away. 2010 in congress may have less passion than this one.
