    Hillary cannot recapture those people.

    Sorry I do not believe in blanket statements of fortune tellers.

    A big chunk of the Reagan democrats are dead and buried.  Many, many of them were like my father......duped by the "I want to feel good about America" meme of 1980.  They were angry because of what Iran did with hostages.  Sadly most of them were ignorant of "Blowback" and how Iran was paying back years of the Americans supporting the puppet Peacock Throne, which with training from Americas learned how to tortune, imprison families in Iran that were against their dictator.

    Most of the Reagan democrats learned the hard way that they were being screwed as Reagan destroyed unions and all the things they worked for.  But they remained ignorant of his connections to dictators all over the world.

    I am not sure if I want the liberal party of this country that decried the evil doing of the state to be county on those who have no problem with imperialism.

      I have been having, for months, with conservatives.  This is what they say to me:

      "I'm not really enthused by any of the Republican candidates.  I can't stand McCain.  I'll probably stay home on election day.  Unless Hillary is the Democratic candidate.  Then I'll have to vote for the Republican.  I have to admit, Obama intrigues me."

      I want those people to stay home.  If they stay home, it helps the other progressive candidates on the underticket.
