26. If that happens
If Hillary is nominated against the will of the majority of Democratic Party primary voters it will be very damaging to the Party. It will turn off many of the new people coming into the political process directly as a result of Senator Obama, maybe turn them off to the Democratic Party altogether. And that will hurt. And a Senator Obama as nominee will also hurt the Democratic Party by dividing the long time base of the Party against the newcomers and having yet another popular nominee get defeated in the GE. Either way, the Democratic Party suffers, only which scenario causes it to suffer more?

We've lived in a 2 Party system for far too long and maybe this is the impetus for change that is actually needed. The Republican Party actually addresses some of my concerns but the Democratic Party addresses more of them, hence I vote Democratic. But there could be another Party, a combination of the 2 majors platforms, that addresses even more of my concerns.

The economy is a disaster, reading these boards one sees that even simple civility is difficult for many Americans, at least when it comes to politics, we've lost respect around the world and are laughed at for our elected "leaders"......things are going to change but for the better or for the worse?
