If you translate the idea of putting Napolitano or Sebelius on the ticket as akin to saying "here's a girl, happy now?" you are indeed a poorly informed person. Are you seriously suggesting that only HRC can provide competent leadership and be a woman at the same time?? Do you clowns even realize how you sound?
These comments are reaffirming for me - MYDD is coming back from the Twilight Zone finally. As for this diary, the amazing fucking arrogance of these people still astounds. Napolitano, Sebelius, etc. not quite good enough - only HRC can carry the banner for women? Stunning idiocy.
How about a moratorium on apologies until HRC apologizes for bullshit, George Wallace-like, "hard working white people..." comments - How about an apology for that, not for "if I've offended you.." but a genuine apology for reinforcing the most harmful and unfair stereotype raised by any candidate in this race. How about an apology to our African American friends and neighbors? Until we get that, any apology by Saint or anyone else is premature and uncalled for. Hardcore race-baiting by a Democratic candidate is simply unacceptable. No VP, ever. She needs a primary challenge in NY....
Linda, take a breath. She isn't conceding - we don't expect her to. That would take class and insight and strength of character, and, well, you know. She won't concede, and that's what makes this all the more pathetic. She ought to. She'd look classy. But she won't. And people like you will yell and spit at the teevee...the rest of us are moving on.
Brad's point is refreshing in its optimism and faith in the ability of people to reason. Unfortunately, that's not what this is about. And it's certainly not about democracy - there is nothing democratic about throwing out the rules mid-game. This diarist is trafficking in the world of Milosevic and Mugabe, not Madison and Hamilton. This is end-results-driven game playing, and it's an insult to people who really care about democracy.
Not sure how to even begin responding to this beauty. Someone should clue in this drooler that "making racial history" - whatever the fuck that is supposed to mean - is not the point.
The only point of agreement we may share is that this may well lead to a crisis in the Democratic Party. Progressives can go in one direction, people like this diarist who are scared of all things "urban", can go another.
Wrong, wrong, and...wrong. No overall positive approvals, chippy. Gotta be fucking kidding. You can't have 50 plus negative ratings on core issues like "honesty" and be considered in good shape. Ahead in popular vote is of course a campaign-sanctioned lie, but you don't need to repeat to prove what a hack you are. And I thought she might be VP, til the whole political murder thing came up. Bummer.
You know, it often in fact IS about Obama...take this election, for instance. He's winning. He's going to be the nominee. It is mostly about him. Not about semi-literate losers, say, like you. The fact that you have a thing for Hillary is really important to you, irrelevant to the rest of us. Change your name to "Democratic Voter" and you'll earn back an ounce of respect. Otherwise, you're just one more dumb ass with a keyboard, scared of black people, mad at young people, with an overall shitty attitude.
