96. Hey, I'm there with ya.
I was an Edwards supporter too so I never got very emotionally vested in the Clinton/Obama thing like many here.

I was merely pointing out how the tables have turned. Long ago (and far away??) it was Clinton supporters pointing at the Court and Roe v. Wade and such. Now it's the Obama folks. Either way you look at it it's true, though it sucks.

And yes, I know full well how emotional things can get in a primary. I was a Dean supporter, nearly died of a broken heart, never got excited about Kerry. While sure at first I considered walking away, screw the SCOTUS and all that but NEVER said such a thing aloud. But still I think a SPOUSE should be cut a little slack for taking the campaign shit flinging a little harder than the rest of us.

In my primary I voted "uncommitted". At this point I am thinking of chairing the Committee to re-elect Uncommitted. It was a hell of a campaign here in MI and, for an unknown against a titan, Uncommitted had uber impressive returns. :-)
