11. Then there are those of us
who feel completely disenfranchised by this whole primary season by having BOTH of these two "star" & "history-making" candidates shoved down our throats. Who feel that they are BOTH less than "great" candidates. Who felt that, with the exception of Gravel, ANY of the other Dem candidates would have been better candidates -that these two were the least desirable. Who now will have to hold our noses with great big giant noseclips NO MATTER WHO we vote for in the general election. Who feel we are screwed because none of the current candidates will take up the charge to address the truly GRAVE issues we are facing, will reverse and correct many of the power grabs of the current administration, will pursue investigations and criminal proceedings against the outgoing administration, along with a host of other issues.

The infighting and attacking between these two supporter groups is ridiculous to watch and has a somewhat morbidly amusing quality to it when you look at it from the perspective of someone like me who agrees with the detractors on BOTH sides. :evilfrown:
