I was a proud supporter of Joe Biden and John Edwards
I am a hopefully optimistic supporter of Obama. I am a bit of a sour supporter of Hillary the way the campaign has gone (more supportive earlier). Regardless I am scared to death of what another 4 years of Republican rule will do to this country and more selfishly my career and well being.

I plan to support the democratic nominee whether Hillary or Obama. In 2000 I wasn't crazy about either candidate and didn't vote because I thought there were enough checks and balances in our constitution to keep one person from destroying the country. Bush has proven me wrong 10,000 times over. I won't make the same mistake and if it comes down to it will vote for the lesser evil - and to me it is clear no matter the dem nominee that the greater evil is a President McCain and Republican legislature.

3. I like Biden and Edwards too.

But Biden wasn't electable, and when Edwards dropped out before super tuesday after saying how he would "fight for us" I lost a lot of respect for him.

I will support our nomination, as long as it is who the people voted for.

It wasn't okay when the republicans stole it for Bush, and it won't be right if the democrats steal it for Hillary.

Quite frankly, these days, I don't see a lot of difference between Hillary and McCain. She reminds me of the republicans more and more with each passing day.

If she wins this legit, by earning the most pledged delegates, then she has my vote. If she gets it by twisting arms and turning supers, I won't vote for her. I'll just stay home.

Right is still right and wrong is still wrong. That's just how I see it.

4. I understand that - but for me the bigger wrong is the US under McCain
but thats just my opinion. Manipulating the delegate vote is a bad one.

5. I won't vote for a repug. I won't do it.
I won't vote for McCain. But, if Hillary steal this, then it makes her no better than them.

I understand it's technically not cheating. But if it doesn't matter who we vote for, then why bother?

After the last two presidential elections, I really have had enough. If the people don't choose this president, completely, then I am just done with the whole damned process.
