85. I don't want to get into a 2008 primary fight.

The Obama campaign was not above politics either (particularly Plouffe and Axelrod). I too can recount plenty of things. Do we really want to start a political version of he said, she said?

BTW, the coffee remark nobody knows whether it's true or not. Kennedy was already dead by the time it was reported. In either case, it would have referred to lack of seniority. When Hillary entered the senate she was the one serving coffee at some of the meetings. The archaic protocol of the senate has long been called "the last remaining plantation".

As for Hillary's comments about Iran, they were in response to the question of what she would do if Iran attacked Israel with nuclear weapons. If you think that Obama, who has used drones more than Bush, would not do the same; then you are deluded.

As for voting for Hillary, if half of the party had to vote for Obama because the alternative would have been worse, then the other half can do the same if Hillary runs and becomes the nominee in 2016. Either way, I don't give a flying fig who people vote for.
