Poll question: How do you feel about Hillary after her McCain comment?

Sorry, polls are turned off at Level 3.

2. You forgot to add...
"I hate her with a white-hot passion and will dance on her grave when she dies."
or
"I wouldn't p*ss on her to put her out if she was on fire."
or
"You're sexist for even putting up this poll."

6. You should add an "Other" category
for people like me that plenty of reasons to be disgusted by her Rovian tactics, but that don't have a poll option that reflects our views.

7. Depends what mood I'm in
I am pissed about her McCain comments but would not go as far as to say I hate her. Some days I feel like I hate her and other days I find myself wishing they could both get the nomination (although I have mixed feelings about a joint ticket).

10. It changed my mind

I used to like Hillary, now I dont. But if Hillary beats Obama I will vote for her in November. And of course I will vote for Obama if he wins.

But how can any Democrat support Hillary after she said this in Texas.

Hillary Clinton told reporters that both she and the presumtive Republican nominee John McCain offer the experience to be ready to tackle any crisis facing the country under their watch, but Barack Obama simply offers more rhetoric.

I think you'll be able to imagine many things Senator McCain will be able to say, she said.

Hes never been the president, but he will put forth his lifetime of experience. I will put forth my lifetime of experience.

Senator Obama will put forth a speech he made in 2002. Clinton was referring to Obamas anti-war speech he delivered in Chicago before entering the United States Senate.

I can not support her in the primary after those statements. If Obama beats her I can see McCain running ads of Hillary saying the above statements where she says McCain would be a better president than Obama.

That is unacceptable to me.

11. She would be an adequate nominee
... but I say that through clenched teeth. Sure, I'm an Obama supporter, and you can weigh that however you like, but I say her McCain remark was infuriatingly wrongheaded.

If she wanted to say that Obama is a lightweight compared to her, if she wanted to say that only she has the experience needed to challenge McCain, if she wanted to off-handedly acknowledge McCain's own experience-any of that would have been fair play. Instead, she conflated all of those sentiments in such a way as to suggest that McCain would be a better President than Obama.

If that statement was a mistake, it was a whopper. If that's what she actually meant to convey, unpleasant implications abound.

12. Right now I'd hold my nose and vote for her in November
But I won't help the campaign. She is making it increasingly hard even to cast a November vote for her.

13. I used to just dislike her
but was set to vote for her in November if needed. Now, if she's the nominee, I really don't care if she wins or loses the election. She wants this to be about experience, right? McCain can put forth his several terms of experience in the senate, compared to 1.25 of Clinton's (and her time as being the president's wife).

And Clinton's votes and comments have also echoed the republicans this election season. They both want to maintain the status quo, which has no understanding of terrorism or the origin of it. They both will continue to pour billions into Pakistan and prop up Musharraf as a puppet dictator. And Hillary also strikes me as someone that can be manipulated into going after Iran, while foolishly keeping troops in Iraq forever. Oh not to mention, she'll still keep the embargo in place against Cuba, refuse to speak to Chavez about anything...

Indeed.
