27. Its a shame HRC supporters don't know hyperbole when they hear it
But that's good for Obama - the more completely insane they seem the less chance anyone will take them seriously.

I dare you to do a "woman on the street" pole - ask ten people NOT on DU if they really think KO want's someone to "take out" HRC permnently. The look on their faces would be priceless.
