102. I liked the post. And only 3 Obama supporters called us bigots.
Way back when Hillary unexpectedly won Connecticut (?) the media said it was because she cried. I didn't agree with that assessment. I thought it was because she adopted Edwards' rhetoric and said "I'll fight for you." To me this contrasted with Obama saying how much he liked Republicans and got along with them while he simultaneously criticized dems for not being nice enough. He divided the old (bitter, which at the time was still bad) and the new, ie., loyal to Obama, not to democratic causes.

Race-baiting goes two ways. To have people here suggest you're a bigot if you still prefer HIllary to Barack doesn't do a lot to persuade. Just makes me want to cling more bitterly to someone I at least know is a democrat. If Hillary got the nomination, Obama would run as an Independent faster than you can say Joe Lieberman.
