8. Y'know, I've talked to a few people I consider right wing
and while they really do want a Repuke, they've said in lowered voices that perhaps Obama wouldn't be so bad. In other words, they think he might be somebody who their politicians can work with. On the other hand, the mere mention of Hillary sends them into a frenzy.


Perhaps they're more sexist than racist, or maybe she's just an extremely divisive figure who would get zero accomplished for our side if she ever did become President, where Obama might be able to reach across the gap, like Bill Clinton did.

9. YES!!
This is what Ive been seeing a lot of too and I live in a very Republican state. Most of the Republicans I've talked to cannot stand Hillary but have no problem with Obama and could even consider voting for him. I cannot understand how people find Hillary electable when half the country would not vote for her and the other have would only CONSIDER voting for her...

4. I'm glad Obama is doing well.
I hope that struggle centers in politics and ideology and not on petty and nasty diversions.

11. That's because independents are allowed to vote in Dem primaries...
and the independents trend republican, and they are spoilers. they'd vote just to screw up Hillary's chances.

14. Absolutely correct. And sometime in the future, the rest of the Democrats will figure this out...

Absolutely correct. And sometime in the future, the
rest of the Democrats will figure this out and the
NH Democratic Primary will be consigned to the dust
bin of history, as it should have been years ago.

Aside from Bill Clinton (who was, essentially, a
Republican), when was the last time it picked a
real winner for the Democrats?
