    I haven’t given up hope (yet) that I’ll convince the Clintonistas that supporting McCain would be counter-productive. I don’t know that I’m making a whole lot of progress.

    Would I be sexist if I responded to Ferraro’s comments that Hillary Clinton would not be where she is today if she were not (or did not stay) married to Billy?

    Daryl,
    You give up when you give up…I admire you for trying. I can’t help but think of the old saying: Hell hath no fury…

    The Clintonistas as you call them, Ferraro included, know that supporting McSame is idiotic…I think they’re just “too caught up in the concept” (a woman, any woman president) to think clearly.

    Sore losers chewing on sour grapes…

    Voting for McCain is counter-productive to your agenda, but not necessarily to theirs. If their goal is to get Clinton in the WH, then to have McCain elected in 08 gives her a shot at 2012, whereas, having Obama in there pretty much kills any chance that Hillary will become president ever.

    A lot of women had their hearts and minds set on seeing the first woman president. Even my mother-in-law, who has never voted anything other than Republican her entire life, was looking forward to voting for the first woman president. (I just about died when she told us she was voting for Hillary.)

    But it is. If Hillary et al are seen as having killed Obama’s chances, she’d be persona non grata in 2012. She wouldn’t even make it out of Iowa (which is BIG Obama country.)

    Thats kind of funny, I’ve heard just the opposite, I’ve even felt that if Hillary wins the nomination, I would vote for McCain rather than her. I like Obama, but the truth is, I would also love to see a woman president, any woman president just about, EXCEPT for Hillary Clinton.

    Well, after Barack Obama serves two terms, Michelle Obama will be qualified to be president (using Hillary-esque standards). Maybe she can become the first female president? Unless of course her rightful turn is usurped by some hotshot, upstart politician who is clearly less qualified.

    Well, at least I like Michelle Obama. 🙂

    Hotheads abound on both sides, though. I just posted an “oh, calm down” email to our local Obama list where one poster was calling for riots in the streets — or darned close to it — if the Rules Committee doesn’t do what the poster wants. Which seemed to involve mostly giving nothing to HC in a loud voice.

    BO has, thank goodness, called for calm and made the point that it doesn’t really matter anyway.

    “I haven’t given up hope (yet) that I’ll convince the Clintonistas that supporting McCain would be counter-productive.”

    Give it time. We conservatives all hate McCain, and there were plenty of threats to vote Hillary when he ended up ‘our pick’, but the firey rhetoric has died down to muttering and low-grade cursing. We’ll bite the bullet and vote McCain – the Hillary supporters will vote Obama. Nobody has enough of an attention span to stay mad until November.

    LOL – he’s a great candidate and I think will be a very good president, maybe transformative, but Obama just doesn’t have anything about his name that’s appealing, does he?
    BO??
