53. When you have a divisive, pro-war candidate who plays the "Inevitability Card" by proxy... are going to get resistance. This is the primary season and this election cannot be any more important. To sit back and do nothing or be told to shut up for the sake of "inevitability" is not what being a Democrat is all about.

Plying the pedestrian notion that putting the Clinton dynasty under scrutiny is somehow off limits because it's considered "metamorphosing into republicans" simply proves that her candidacy is particularly bad for the Democratic party.

To sophmorically call someone who would dare put Clinton's continuingly opposing statements to her previous statements into scrutiny a "lurking freeper" is weak at best.

To defend one's other candidate against a rabid Clinton supporter who wants to spread lies is sincere dedication to the truth and setting the record straight.

Since Hillary Clinton wants to bring her husband Bill Clinton into the "package", there is certainly a lot that can be discussed about his record as President. You don't even have to mention the obvious stuff that put their own marriage's weakness on display.

Does American want family dynasties? Do Democrats want to give the Republicans the chance to empower their base with a Clinton X 2 nomination? Do we want to discuss her voting record on the war and recent votes on perhaps helping start the next war?

The discussion is not "becoming absurd". It is not "hatred". It is democracy.

I just got back from some grassroots work today for my preferred candidate, Barack Obama, and it's not my fault that at least a few dozen people made a point of telling me that they do not want Hillary Clinton as the nominee. I didn't ask them anything. They felt the need to let it be known. These are not "rapid freepers" or "lurking Republicans". They are mostly women and from I could tell very intelligent and current on the issues of the day.

Are they part of the "obsession" that was "once unique to the republican party"?

They want a choice for real change and they will make it known when they vote.
