  •  I don't believe in Pyhrric victories. (0+ / 0-)

    Winning a primary at all costs only leads to general election failure. I'm in Iowa.  What am I supposed to say to Iowa college students in November?  She tried to suppress their vote for the caucus.  How will I convince them that she respects their votes now when she actively fought against them before?  Scorched earth leaves no winners.

      I think Clinton is going to win in FL and win for Floridians.

        Was that your response when Ken Blackwell suppressed the vote in Ohio?  Are all your ethics dependent on your candidate choice or is it just your ethics about voters' rights?

        Your comment is a prime example of the cancer I was talking about.  Fucking voters who don't support in the primary is bad strategy when you'll need those votes in the fall.

        You'll have to be the one to convince the Iowa students.  Trust me, you'll need every single one of them if you intend to win the electoral college. I'll vote for her but I will not lift a finger for any candidate who attempts to suppress the vote.

        •  How Are You Going To Explain Your Vote (0+ / 0-)

          for Clinton after all the judgmental moral superiority over Clinton you've been expressing?  Fall back on "hate the sin, love the sinner?"

          Now I truly pity those Iowa students.

          •  Because sometimes a vote (0+ / 0-)

            really is a choice between the lesser of two evils.  After her actions in this campaign I do think she has crossed into evil territory.  I'm just hoping a Democratic Congress will keep her in line better than they will McCain or Huckabee.
