90. IMHO, this was a historic primary ... a Black American and a Woman
Edited on Tue Jun-17-08 01:04 AM by akbacchus_BC
ended up on the ticket for the Democratic nomination. Guess supporters on both sides were cheering their candidates and the Primaries allowed all Americans to vote, which I thought was great. Senator Clinton really toughened up Senator Obama in the long run by her not quitting. She is a fighter and I strongly believe that when the swiftboating starts against Senator Obama, he will fight as hard as she did, albeit with her support. However, it is sad that some Dems are not able to now support the presumptive Democratic nominee. Feelings having been running high for the past few months and me being an outsider, most of Senator Obama's supporters would have supported Senator Clinton if she were the nominee.

As far as I can see, some of Senator Clinton's supporters are not able to support Barack Obama and even though some of Senator Clinton's supporters were long standing members on here, some of them blatantly said they will support McCain. After the Primaries, quite a few of Senator Clinton's supporters got tombstoned, which is a pity. We need all Dems to vote for the presumptive nominee to ensure America takes its rightful place as a world leader.

Just my opinion, and I hope come November, most Dems will vote for the Democratic nominee, otherwise, the world would be reeling if McCain gets nominated. Keep your eyes on the Goal. Us Canadians want Obama or even if it were Senator Clinton, to be in the White House. Eight years of Bush is enough.


Edited to add if McCain gets selected to the White House, then world is doomed for another four years.
