Obama Supporters; Say Something Good About A Clinton Super Delegate
show them that WE democrats don't play the same as they do. I'll start; John Murtha has balls the size of casaba melons-he was THE guy who stood up and said enough is enough with this war. I will NOT throw him under the Obama bus just because he supports Hillary. Who's next?

13. Actually Murtha I used to respect a lot
And still think he's a great advocate for our troops. If HE will endorse Obama, after the convention, I will respect him the morning after!

Edited on Wed Apr-02-08 05:23 PM by JayFredMuggs
FRANK

and I respect him since he has a great mind, likely NOT to lead local people in Mass to vote for McSame, if Obama wins the nomination.

He's smart enough to know what to do then!

Did a good job of engaging other countries rather then talking down to them. Was a hairs breadth away from an israeli-palestinian peace deal.

made a mistake in giving authority for war in Iraq. What happened to day one experience? With experience like that who needs to have an alternative to Bush?

58. Yeah. And they both tried to retract it.
Hilary said she wouldn'tt have voted for "war" if she had known then what she knows now.

Would "you" of said the same thing? I followed the U.N. inspections just as Hillary did and I couldn't say that without lying. That is Hillary's biggest problem with me - her honesty.

34. Many, many who support Clinton whether they are SDs or not
are good people and good Democrats. I support Obama and I do not make him more important or electable by trashing Clinton or the people who support her. We are all Democrats and it is McCain who is the ultimate person who needs to be defeated.

45. she has said that she will vote for but refuses to endorse or campaign for her
Barbara Boxer, one of the state's best-known superdelegates, has confused some by her stance. Boxer does not plan to endorse Clinton or Obama as long as both are running. But even though she has not thrown her support to either candidate, she does plan to vote for Clinton at the convention because Clinton won the California primary. Saying "the will of the voters is paramount," she hopes the superdelegates do not decide the nominee at the convention.

"Part of me says, 'Let's make the most of this.' We're seeing a record number of people turning out in state after state. There is tremendous excitement in states that we will need this fall. But this is dangerous territory - you try to control what your supporters say, but you can't always do that."

53. It's my understanding that she's not endorsing either one, but will vote for Clinton
because her constituents went for Clinton. Am I mistaken?

from link:

"Barbara Boxer, one of the state's best-known superdelegates, has confused some by her stance. Boxer does not plan to endorse Clinton or Obama as long as both are running. But even though she has not thrown her support to either candidate, she does plan to vote for Clinton at the convention because Clinton won the California primary.

I would love it if she would endorse Obama, though.

43. I've always liked Barbara Mikulski (THE BULLDOG!!!) and always will... no matter who she supports.
Same with Gephardt, Boxer... all of them really.

They have the right to support whomever they choose and I respect their opinion and even took it into consideration when making my decision.

It doesn't have to be as ugly as the Hillary folks make it. It all comes down to respect.

66. Rep. Sheila Jackson - Lee has done a lot of great deeds
for the Houston, Texas area. She is in a tough district and she delivers for them year after year. She was the rep that was booed at the County Caucus by her constituents b/c her district went 90-10 for Obama. She said she already pledged to Clinton over a year ago and couldn't change her vote. I know she wished she hadn't done that.

The Clinton's thought they could intimidate other candidates by shoring up these superdelegates before the election. Now it is hurting their people and their campaign. It would be noble for Clinton to let Rep. Jackson - Lee to vote the way of her district. But I won't hold my breath.

Pastor is one of the most liberal members of the House, and was a founding member of the Congressional Progressive Caucus. Pastor is pro-choice and in 2006 supported the interests of the Planned Parenthood 100 percent, according to their records.

He does not support the Iraq War. :thumbsup:
