    I hope they have a meaningful discussion about how to get those lingering Clinton supporters who have not come over to Obama. They need to look past their own egos to the bigger picture – a non-vote or witholding of support for Obama is a vote for McCain, and the Clinton/Obama policies and plans could not be farther from McCain's. They need to decide where they want America to go in the next years, including with the economy, the war, supreme court nominees, family and women's issues, and healthcare and take action that supports those issues. They need to start acting like adults instead of spoiled children who didn't get our way. It is too important to play children's games.

  3. Don't capitulate to hate

    Treachery and foul play by one democrat against another democratic candiate will NEVER win my vote.

    True democrat for democracy, freedom, justice, equality and fair politics. Therefore still for Hill and never for the installed imposter.

  5. hate drove us away

    If the democratic party valued its lifelong democratic party base…

    And if Obama wants our votes….

    He and his hateful cult following should have shown HRC the respect she has earned and deserves.

    He and his filthy, vulgar, loudmouthed supporters should have never insulted, debased, mocked, ridiculed and insulted greater than 50% of the democratic party.

    Too little, too late.

  6. A house divided

    Living through the terrible, hateful, fixed for Obama primary, I can say that this is just too little too late:

    If the democratic party valued its lifelong democratic party base…

    And if Obama wants our votes….

    He and his hateful cult following should have shown HRC the respect she has earned and deserves.

    He and his filthy, vulgar, loudmouthed supporters should have never insulted, debased, mocked, ridiculed and insulted greater than 50% of the democratic party.

    Too little, too late.

    The democratic base is gone…possibly for good.

    We all hate the direction of the new democratic party. Even those who will still reluctantly vote for the installed democratic nominee this NOV.

    Those that Obama has inspired and brought into the party are filled with vitriol. They disrespect fellow Americans, fellow democrats, and even democratic candidates. They argue, not out of an informed opinion but with name-calling belittling insults to demean ALL others who may disagree.

    They force, coerce, threaten and demand who gets to be nominee of the party.

    This is 3rd world election rigging by propaganda and manipulation of the media. It is not democracy, justice or freedom.

    The democrats are fools to think that UNITY is ever possible after the Obama show and the bash-fest of the past 6 months.

    Viva Liberty and the right to vote.

    What's the point? She's not stumping for him like Bill did for her.
    We don't need her nor her supporters.

  13. too late to kiss

    You will have to take the fact that Obama has lost the democratic base for the democratic party. This will cost Obama votes.

    My conscience is clear- I cast MY ballot for the very BEST candidate- no racial games, no gender bias, no filthy insults, no hatred, no forceful coercion of the democratic process.

    TAKE THAT!

    Thank goodness Hillary is taking over–however, Bill needs to take a hike–he is not being helpful–cutting up John McCain's war hero status is hitting below the belt!

  17. PUMA 4 HILL

    I wish she would stay far, far away from this puppet.

    She was the best choice and the boys in the club didn't like it.

    PUMA PAC – we will stop the DNC and the Obama thugs at just about any cost. I've stopped contrubuting to Hillary and moved my money to PUMA.

    Hillary supporters know what really happened at the caucuses and in the media and the DNC. And we are not just going to roll over and unite for the wrong reasons.

    McCain '08 for Clinton '12

  21. phony baloney Obama

    Maybe her humility will humble his big inflated ego.

    So far only the haters are falling for Obama- the vile, filthy bloggers...the name-calling insulters who di not argue by reason but by demeaning others... always ridiculing and denigrating other democrats.

    July 9, 2008 04:44 pm at 4:44 pm |
  22. Okay...

    Why doesn't he just announce her as his VP already. If not just dump her and pick Edwards as your VP. I'm tired of waiting for the VP announcement.
