  •  The 2008 primaries did reveal (12+ / 0-)

    some flaws in Clinton's campaign style -- hopefully she's learned from her mistakes. And it could be argued that a contentious primary made Obama a better candidate for the general.

      toughened him/campaign to the point that McCain's fumbling/bumbling/stumbling and puma + faux Dem undercutting ("Whitey tape" anyone?) were rather easily handled.  

      Competition makes the team better - not necessarily every individual (sports training camp/Olympic trials example: some can't handle it emotionally/ psychologically when someone else is better. Some improve, some wash out.).

      Let's get the fumbles handled in a Dem primary, not "live" in October 2016.
