Would it be possible to have one day where there were no Democratic Presidential candidates bashing going on here.

1. One can only hope...
however, there are always those "Henny Penny," gloom and doomers, who can never see the glass as half full. I live with one :crazy:

3. I just for the life of me cannot see how trashing a fellow democrat could in any way be conducive to
our goals of returning our government to us the people of the USA.

6. I'm right there with ya...
in fact, I can't stomach this place like I used to. The negativity is toxic and that's no way to get our country back.

8. as was stated up thread one can only hope
Personally I would and will proudly vote for the Democratic nomomonee no matter who it is, and especially this election cycle as I see them all as worthy and very capable of the office they seek. for instance sone shares my ideas on education, sone on the war and others on energy and on and on. I can identify with any and all of them. I have never seen a stronger field of candidates in my 59 some odd years

7. You know what it does...it brings people who would NOT
have been supporters move to the person being flamed side. They get so damn upset because of the manufacturing of tiny bits of so called evidence into a full blown flame they can't stand the candidate the bashers are supporting. It is a shame that people feel this way, but that is what flaming does it has the wrong effect of what the bashers wants.

10. I am with you on that one.
I was so disgusted with the stupidity on DU yesterday
that I logged off. Logged off for the first time ever.
I cannot see how the infighting between the different
dem campaign camps can help the democratic party. We
should be laying waste to the repukes. The repukes are
so much better at circling the wagons to protect their
party. The dems have party members who defect to the other
side at the first shot fired, so to speak. The dems also
seem to be infiltrated with double-operatives hell-bent on
turning the Democratic party into the Centrist/conservative
party.
