Complaint by Numbers

Could an Edwards endorsement finally end this madness? | May 14, 2008

CNN recently confirmed that John Edwards will endorse Barack Obama in the upcoming race for the presidency. While Edwards didn’t pull too much of the electorate during the primaries, his endorsement could mean the support of many voters who could otherwise be swayed to the (sinking) Clinton campaign. After all, Edwards won 7% of the votes in West Virginia, despite his absence from the race. Perhaps with this endorsement, Clinton will gracefully step down. Now if only Gore would drop some hints about his leanings…

I don’t mean to Clinton-bash. At the beginning of the year, and in fact, in the weeks preceding Super Tuesday, I was still a fan of Clinton, though somewhat hesitantly. Unfortunately, her recent campaign tactics and mudslinging which have won her many votes, have turned me off entirely to her entire campaign. 

Through her entire run, I’ve been reminded of this Mad TV parody of the Britney Spears song, “Lucky.” I don’t generally enjoy Mad TV, but I was struck by the foresight of this video.

  1. I’m democrat but will NEVER EVER vote for Obama, because:
    1. Obama has never done any job from starting to the end
    2. He is a walkie-talkie
    3. He has no political ideas at all
    4. He was rised by Chicago mafia politicians
    5. His wife Michelle takes bribes
    6. His portfolio is thinner than a sheet
    7. He ruined the party with all those betrayers like Richardson, Pelosi, Kennedy ans so on

    So if Clinton is not chosen or the results are falsified (as Dean & Co try hard) then I vote for Nader or write-in Clinton

  2. I see you’re quite passionate about this, and I respect your opinion. I was considering writing in Obama, or voting Nader should Clinton get the nod. While I feel she is certainly a politician, I don’t necessarily see that as a good thing.

    It’s a shame that the party is thus divided. It’s really going to hurt come November.

  3. and who did this hurt? Clinton was ready to do the job from day 1 and then came that walkie-talkie. it would take 3 years for him to adjust in the White House so it’s lost time to make a country better

  4. There are a lot of dems who are going to jump ship and either not vote or vote Nader this fall, which means McCain wins. I’m not saying Clinton’s hurting democrats, but the rift splitting the party is. I don’t foresee a positive outcome for us (because though our opinions on the candidates differ, we are still part of the same party) unless we can unite.

    Also, I’m not quite sure Clinton is prepared to do the job. What connections does she have that aren’t necessarily Bill’s? I realize she has been in the Senate, but we all know that was to give her enough “experience” to run for the presidency now.

    And just for kicks, you made some arguments, and I wouldn’t mind seeing them backed up by evidence. I’m also unsure of what you mean by “walkie-talkie.” 🙂
