48. There is a HUGE difference between an voter, a supporter and an apologist.
Many people voted for Hillary Clinton. Many were and are good Democrats. Most of these Democrats do not necessarily define themselves by their candidate and they will have other candidates, including our party's nominee,Barack Obama.

Supporters so blinded by their support that they accept any and all behavior from their candidate at the expense of the Democratic Party are not Democrats. Anyone who harms the Democratic Party for the sake of any one candidate is not a Democrat and should find no safe harbor in the Democratic Party.

Anyone who condones Hillary Clinton's Republican-like tactics and outrageous statements are as guilty as she is of dividing for the sake of ambition. With "Democrats" like these who needs Republicans?

Maybe the party is at a defining moment. Are we going to be the party of decency and integrity or are we going to be exactly like the other side? If Hillary Clinton apologists don't feel welcome in the Democratic party and they leave, so be it. The party will only be stronger for the house-cleaning.
