The Classy Clintons, cont.

You have to love this. A comment from a reader of the Guardian:
I thought Obama was the Great Uniter not the Great Hater. His message seems to be a bit lost on his supporters - they all hate Hillary. They don't just disagree with her policies, they hate her. Compare that to Hillary's supporters - they just prefer her over Obama. They don't get into the nastiness.
Now, a quote from a Clinton adviser in the very Guardian column that attracted the comment above:
If you have a social need, you're with Hillary. If you want Obama to be your imaginary hip black friend and you're young and you have no social needs, then he's cool.
People aren't learning. It's not Obama supporters who hate Hillary. It's about 51% of the American public. Does that number ring troublesome to anyone?

you know i love you regardless,
but i must ask, as your posts seem to beg elaboration:
what do you think Obama can do?
Why do you prefer him?

I'm truly interested in your opinions,
not just looking for a debate

thanks,
KO

You know, I had been a Hillary Clinton supporter until she started to out-Rove Karl Rove himself. This is just flat-out repulsive.

The racist doggy-whistle comments were one thing-- the hip black friend is just the latest in a long string of them.

Now Hillary is trying to disenfranchise voters in the Nevada caucus.

She is truly toxic to the Democratic Party and the country. I'll never vote for any of the Clintons again. Ever. And I would urge other Democrats to hit the Clintons hard.
