103. That is not my recollection. My recollection is that the criticisms came to a sudden & complete end
Edited on Thu Mar-03-11 04:01 PM by stevenleser
once Hillary conceded and we were all on the same page for the first time in a long time.

Criticisms did not start again until after election day. Some people started right in when cabinet selections were leaked.

     - Who was he before?  Fuddnik   Mar-03-11 03:45 PM   #68

  - There will be no Primaries. If that's what you're wondering about.  WolfoftheWild   Mar-03-11 03:11 PM   #8 
     - No, it isn't.  Starry Messenger   Mar-03-11 03:13 PM   #13 
        - soon enough, dear  WolfoftheWild   Mar-03-11 03:27 PM   #34

                                - Why would it come sooner if there are no primaries?  Starry Messenger   Mar-03-11 04:05 PM   #110 
                                   - because no primaries means he is the de facto nominee.  WolfoftheWild   Mar-03-11 04:17 PM   #120
