    Wow the Obama supporters are really nervous. Seams they cant just say good job Hillary, congratulations. The fear is evident in the same old rhettoric about polarizing and baggage. Come November whoever is nominated the Democratic party will come together. Threatening to vote republican if Obama doesnt win is also very childish. If your willing to throw the democratic party under the bus because your man doesnt win then you belong with the republicans. I am a Hillary supporter, but if Obama wins it I will swallow my pride and support him for the good of the party. Stop being so selfish and stop being such sore loosers. this is'nt a game its real life. Any democrat is better than another 4 years of republican war mongering and economic collapse. Give us a break and grow up.

    It is not a threat to vote republican, it will be the reality of many voting democrats. "The good of the party" is not what I am concerned about; however, the good of the country is exactly my concern. Obviously, you are more concerned with party lines than the good of America. "Any Democrat" does not equate to "good" and "All republican" does not equate to "evil"... I think you need to grow in understanding of humanity. It is childish to believe such things.

    You are certainly right that any Democrat does not equate to good and all republicans do not equate to evil - and it has nothing to do with understanding humanity. What it has to do with is the basic differences in the beliefs of each party (which you can find on their platforms) and for what they stand.

    If you are neither strongly ProChoice nor ProLife or care little about gun control or tax relief for the middle class or personal liberities (to name but 4 major differences) then by all means become an Independent and vote for the candidate of your choice rather than based on party lines. However to those who in fact strongly support ProChoice and personal freedoms, then they will either vote for the Democratic candidate or choose to sit out rather than vote for a Republican who will most certainly have the opportunity to change the direction of the US Supreme Court = and Roe vs Wade will be overturned – and things like wire-tapping, big brother watching, search and seizure rights, holding someone without legal representation and more may very well become a fact of life.
