    Your comments make a great deal of sense. I hope people aren't going to tear you apart.

    I can understand why people may feel this woman is being betrayed, but I feel like other people are just using Schrader as an avatar for their own anger. They are transferring all their loathing for the Democratic Party onto her. The idea of the DCCC somehow stealing their money, when people here were the ones who set up a way to give her money and tipped off The Stakeholder about her website, is what confounds me. I mean, there were people here yesterday who warned about giving money before a candidate is finalized. The DCCC may have made some mistakes (they usually do), but we aren't their victim. We entered into all of this very willingly, in spite of having no idea if she would be the final nominee or not.

      and this is democracy.  

      This opportunity shouldn't look like BushCO.  She was selected by the voters, and she is eager to contest the race.

      No one is required to financially support her, but the DCCC shouldn't even hint that they might prefer another candidate or that they have any power to choose one.

      Pls don't defend the undefendable.
