When will we stop fighting each other?

I know many people here feel the same way I do, and I understand that many other people are pointing out policy differences, but I'm a little worried that we're dividing ourselves so much that we won't rally behind the nominee once there is one.

Personally I'm a former Dean supporter and current Edwards supporter with Clark as my 2nd choice, but I would enthusiastically vote for whoever the nominee is when the time comes, and I'm not willing to spend hours of wasted energy fighting other Democrats who want basically the same things I want. That's basically why I've been hanging out in the lounge so long. I just get the feeling that the freepers that are sure to be lurking around here love to see us fighting this way.

I'm idealistic and truthfully none of the candidates are far enough to the left for me, but I'm also practical enough to see that another 4 years of Bush would be a disaster, and I'm willing to compromise to make sure that that disaster doesn't happen.

Isn't it time we support our candidates, and hold nothing against those who support others. Shouldn't we be coming together as a party to fight the REAL enemy? Or should I just go back to the Lounge and hunker down till this is all over and hope that there's enough fight left in us to fight the real battle?
