    You are a citizen of this site and making a reasoned argument.

    What has got me a little hot-headed (I admit) is a very real perception that the Clinton campaign is using it in an orchestrated way to launch talking points and test trial balloons.  

    I think I have a pretty good record of discussing things with Clinton folks, and I even almost liked her myself until about a month ago.  

    I'd argue that them going farther is way beyond a perhaps, but its no matter.  My issue isn't with honest members of this site who support Clinton, even when they do so vigorously.

    I'm having a problem with the simultaneous coordinated surfacing of new nasty Clinton campaign themes on a daily basis.  I think it is a real threat to the site if either the Clinton or Obama campaigns infiltrate the site to the point where it becomes simply a tool for their agenda against the other.

    Also, I have a son, and he does and says stupid things all the time, so this dragging of a 23 year old boy through the mud really got my goat.

    Some advice: Travel lightly.

      by both Clinton and Obama campaign people - and I would guess Edwards people too.  I agree that 23 year old sons and daughters can be stupid also and I am not eager to destroy them for all eternity either.  But I also get the fact that people get freaked about rape jokes...

      Having said all of that, I would hope that everyone would consider fighting, but trying not to do it "to the death" which is what I feel we've done too much of within the party lately.  I have never been fans of the Clintons and always disagreed with the notion that they were the standard bearers of the party, but I don't quite feel like totally destroying them either - anymore than I feel like totally destroying Obama.  It seems lately that those are our only two choices though and I resent that.  Thanks for listening.
