42. So vote for McCain...
Edited on Thu Jun-26-08 01:19 PM by Baby Snooks
I am a little amazed by this sudden return to the "bamabashing" as if some believe something will change and when everyone gets to the convention floor the superdelegates will have changed their minds and will override the party and the people and select Hillary Clinton.

Either support Obama or shut the fuck up. Pardon my french. There is no one else to vote for but McCain. You want to talk about lesser of two evils? Then do so. But accept that McCain is the greater evil.

I'm sorry but Clinton versus McCain would have been a matter of the lesser of two evils. Not Obama versus McCain.

There is no such thing as a perfect candidate. No one can please everyone. But for the most part, Obama has pleased a majority of Americans. Including a growing number of Republicans who simply cannot bear the thought of John McCain destroying what's left of this country.

They apparently are smarter than some Democrats.
