128. And that attitide is why many of us Clinton backers are so angry
I don't agree with the version of history you have presented. Hillary has run for president because she loves the country. And if the race was truly rightfully over then Obama would have the needed delegates.

I don't think Obama supporters understand that the basis for reunification cannot be anything approaching the condescending terms that you will want. It can't be something like Obama saying: "We need to forgive Hillary and remember all the good she has done in the past. Yes, she has behaved badly, but we all make mistakes. If anybody deserves forgiveness and redemption it is Hillary Clinton. So let's let bygones be bygones and welcome her back. She once stood for the old order but today I truly believe that nobody is more committed to our revolution then Hillary Clinton."

This kind of condescending an degrading peace is no peace at all--it is a facillitator to a high five between David Axelrod and David Ploufe. Obama will have to chose between the high five and the Clinton supporters. Unfortunately, I think he is convinced he can have both.
