If Hillary is for continuing troop involvement in Iraq, and the last
election was to install Dems to stop the war, why are so many people for Hillary?

Of course I would vote for her if she became the Dem Candidate, but, why are Dems backing continued support for this occupation?

1. FWIW, I don't know anyone who is "for Hillary"
We covered this last week and I'm not alone in that observation.

4. You are delusional. She is way ahead in the polls so obviously
there are a few people for her.

I work in the medical field and also at a large university


I know plenty of people who are "for Hillary"

14. No, I just don't know any Hillary supporters.
How is that delusional?

There were several other DU'ers who don't know any either. I guess it just depends who you hang out with.

Yes, it is difficult when they are restricted by a 25' tether.


But seriously and unfortunately, many confine themselves to their own little clique,

so of course there is no diversity in their lives.

2. These clowns want to be all things to all people, or so the
impression they give. But actually, they all dance to the tune of their corporate masters. And if they say stay in the Middle East until every last drop of oil is gone, that's what their real hidden policy will be.

5. at daily kos, when they do straw polls, hillary barely
outdoes Kucinich, and comes in 4th or 5th place. so my conclusion is she is not very popular on the blogosphere.

8. The lefty blogosphere has all the predictive wisdom of Dick Morris...
You can take what they say will happen, and you can be pretty sure the exact opposite will occur...

That Hillary is not the favorite of the blogosphere...is a good sign in terms of ultimate chance of winning

9. all i said is that hillary has little support in DU/Daily Kos
not saying she hasn't support elsewhere. rich people, for example. and conservative democrats.
and like i said, fred krueger thompson has lots of support also.

13. You are extremely disingenuous. "fred krueger thompson has lots of support also."
Define "lots" Where do they stand in the polls?

Do they have 45 million in the bank?

15. My theory is.....
Some people want to be on the "winning" team, regardless of the issues. So, they get behind the one who is doing better in the polls or has raked in the most campaign money. (All you need for proof of this is to look at the VAST post about how their candidate is doing in the polls or how much they have gotten in contributions.)

It is sad really. They care less about issues than not appearing to back a "loser".
