6. Given the fact that most people including many Clinton supporters
now realize that the nomination has been decided I perceive that there has been a shift in manners. It would be adviseable for those of us who are Obama supporters to understate rather than overstate what is now obvious. I have also been guilty of this but would not suggest a more neutral title like - Ongoing ground problems plague Clinton in Texas - will be more effective. More people will read it and not take offense at it.

What would have been seen as perfectly normal 2 weeks ago is now being perceived as pouring salt in the wounds - unnecessarily.

Thank you for your post and if you are kind enough to edit your subject line I thank you in advance.
