Just a bit of harmless friendly advice....
people need a bit of time. Some breathing room. I know if Obama had lost the nomination, I wouldn't immediately be holding hands and singing songs with Clinton supporters (though I've seen a few tonight who were able to and I was in awe of that). Most people just need to sort of re-group, get away from things for a few days, you know?

The day after the election of 2004, a neighbor guy who had been relentlessly ugly in his support of Bush and against my support of Kerry came over ringing my doorbell, grinning like a Cheshire cat, and wanting to shake hands and be friends again. Hey everything's cool, let's be friends! Oh SURE, HE was happy, of course.

And while I did shake his hand (my mother didn't raise me to be rude), it wasn't sincere. I was still angry, hurt. I didn't want to be his freaking FRIEND, he was an IDIOT and voted for that MOTHERFUCKER. I had a lot of anger, LOL.

I shut him out of my life, along with a few other Bush supporters for a while. But time helped.

That's all I'm saying. Goodnight DU. It's been surreal.

3. Oh I agree and let me add this here:
I do admire those who are offering apologies. That's awesome and I think it's needed.

I was just saying that sometimes it takes a bit of time, that's all.

5. First of all, she hasn't conceded yet and some of us won't be back anyway.
What reason would there be ? I never accepted Bush either! LOL!

2. But the thing is, he voted for BUSH
The mf-ers you're upset with tonight voted for another DEMOCRAT. Please try to put it in perspective. It may not make you feel better right now, but hopefully in time you'll see the difference. :hi:

4. I'm not upset with anyone.
I'm an Obama supporter. I was just using the Bush example because it was the same kind of situation and same feelings.
