No one will come out the winner...
If we continue to throw accusations and negative attacks back and forth at each other. Clinton is not evil and Obama is not in deep with Rezko. This place is so divided. How do we come together and promote our candidates without attacking each other.

Please...no flaming...let's figure out how we can have an honest discussion about our candidates without the nastiness. Am I being naiive?

5. I apologize...
Edwards has stayed out of the fray.....It wasn't an intentional slight.

3. Yet you post that Bush has endorsed Clinton and Edwards has endorsed Obama.
Did you have a change of attitude in the past five minutes?

4. My post was misunderstood...
Edited on Mon Jan-28-08 07:01 PM by busymom
It was a spoof on the "Reagans' endorse Obama" and "Jesus endorses obama"...if you open it and read it, you will see that I said the exact same thing...that it is time to focus on ending the Bush *regime* and come together..and then I asked the exact same question which is how can we come together as a party to support each other without the negativity.

I have NO CLUE why it was considered flame bait and this isn't...and why Jesus and the Reagans' can endorse Obama and that isn't flame bait :shrug: Different title...same text.

I support Hillary Clinton, but I don't intend on seeing Obama destroyed by other democrats in the process....and vice versa.

9. I share your commendable view. However, Hillary and Bill were there first to go negative....
It was a couple of weeks before Iowa when the sXXt started to hit the fan. It accellerated ever since until SC.

I really thought Obama was in a no-win situation here. If he didn't respond to Bill and Hillary making race the issue, they would get a free pass. If he responded, he would also reinforce race is the issue and get side-tracked from his unity message.

Fortunately for Obama, SC went for him in such large numbers that it blew away race as the issue, in spite of that Bill and Hillary did.

Also, I might add that at least since last Spring, many of the Hillary Herd have been so smug, arrogant, rude and sickening that it has turned off a LOT of the rest of us. She was on her way to the coronation, Obama was not ready yet, yadayada, and inevitability showed its stupid head. Which, I guess, attracted some rude and arrogant people. Like people who root for the Yankees and Patriots, unless they are having a losing season.

I would be willing to bet that if Hillary's supporters were not so arrogant, there probably would not have been so much bashing of Hillary on these boards. ARrogant, verging on hero-worship.

10. But let's have an honest discusssion then about this topic...
We could go back and forth about who percieves that they were attacked first...arguing our points..pulling up threads and articles...and we would be wasting our time. I know that your experience is that many Hillary supporters have been rude...but I honestly have to say that some of the nastiest comments I've read come from the Obama supporters here. We could argue again about who was more rude first and who deserves to attack back, but it will get us nowhere.

Hi. I'm a Clinton supporter who does like Obama and admires his ideas. I will vote for Clinton in the primaries, but if Obama wins I will support him fully in the upcoming election.

:toast:

-1 rude hillary supporter.

7. We are being distracted...
from the real issues like the economy, Iraq and integrity of the voting system while we fight with each other. The republicans are loving it.

8. Understood. Sometimes it feels like Mad Max Beyond Thunderdome - Two go in one comes out.
The honest discussion begins when we discuss the actual issues and the candidates proposals.
