If the people here are any indication, I would kind of doubt it.

but these people are very closed minded and not representative of real democrats

I for one will support the nominee

1. Hey, classy sweeping generalization!
Obama supporters = "these people are very closed minded and not representative of real democrats"

Welcome to DU, I guess.

2. Yes...
Despite her racist tactics in S.C., I'd much rather have her in the White House than McCain. Though, I still think that if Obama can get past this pastor thing he will be the nominee. I also think that most other Obama supporters will support Clinton if she is the nominee (albeit, without nearly as much enthusiasm) as McCain really starts to pander to the conservatives and religous right.

5. That has been asked and answered. It's not us you have to worry about.
25% of Clinton supporters say they will not support Obama if he wins the nomination.

10% of Obama supporters say they will not support Hillary if she wins.

It's been all over the news. This is just flame baiting.

6. thanks for that...
I take offense at your comment. but guess you're not much different than your extremist brethren ....see, I singled out some supporters rather than making a broad generalization.
If you really feel either side is all "very closed minded and not representative of real democrats"
then you don't get out much....

Democrats will support Democrats. save your criticism for someone who says differently and believe me, they are on both sides.

Yes, I will certainly vote for Clinton if she is the nominee.

9. I will vote for her
but will not volunteer or donate money to her or the DNC if she wins the nomination. I just can't after the dirty campaign she has run and will continue to run.

11. Gonna have to......
..after all, the most important goal is bringing the 'Reign of (T)Error' to an end - be it in the form of Bush or McCain. Period.

15. I would vote for a yellow dog
so I'll certainly vote for whomever. This indicates to me a lot of juvenile thinking that one might not vote for the nominee. In the number of primaries in my life...lots of times I didn't pick the winner and the reason I don't like the primaries...is cause of the animosity they cause.

17. I will
No matter how mad she makes me, the stakes are too high to have another 4 years of Republican rule.

18. I won't but before I'm flamed for saying that
please realize that I live in AZ and this state will be going to McCain regardless of who I would vote for. After the truly ugly and nasty comments from Clinton supporters here and the efforts they've put in to bring Obama down there is no way I could bring myself to vote for her.
If I lived in a state where my vote could make a difference I would consider voting for her but that is all I would do.

19. I will vote for the Demo nominee.
I'd rather vote for someone who shares 80% of the political ideologies of my candidate than one who shares 10%.

20. I won't
she voted for the war, her campaign tactics have been abominable, I'm not going to compromise my ideals. I think in the long run, her being elected president would be bad for the party and our hold on Congress.
