Edwards supporters - The 5 stages of Grief
Advertisements [?]
1. Denial: When I first read that JE was going to drop out, before the words came out of his mouth, I did NOT want to buy it, I hoped it was a rumor.
2. Anger: Didn't he just say he was in until the convention? The damn M$M are too obsessed with the H&O hype-wars. Jesus, doesn't anyone in this country realize what a great person he is and how he could have really turned things around?
3. Bargaining: Just let a Dem win, it'll be OK
4. Depression: OK, so maybe I'm not OK with settling for someone just because they are a Dem. If someone like John (or, John) doesn't get into/re-enter this race, we are doomed.
5. Acceptance: Will never happen. Never again, not for me. I will not compromise my vote or stop working to bring the best nominee to the table/President to the 'office'. The types of major changes/shake-ups that need to happen to bring this country even halfway back to justice, fairness, and moral standing, will not, IMO, happen without people waking up and supporting someone like JE.

So, if that means I write in a candidate without a chance of winning, so be it. I'm sick of compromising my beliefs and principles for the 'good' of anyone.
