  •  I absolutely agree... (0+ / 0-)

    But why don't we take it a step further?  Why don't we all (Edwards and Obama supporters) make it clear to that these kinds of tactics, the divisive trade mark all primary Clinton campaigns, will not be tolerated. They will go to any lengths to whip the populists and progressives of the Democratic Party back into line so as not to offend their corporate paymasters.

    I strongly encourage every single Democrat to recognize the fact that accepting money from Washington Lobbyists and special interests PACs is an immoral and potentially traitorous act that undermines all the Party is suppose to stand for, and indeed, the basic principles of democracy itself.

    I, for one will not vote for Hilary if she is the Party's nominee in the general election merely for the sake of Party unity. Genuine principles and basic integrity do matter. Without a serious and unlikely change in Hilary's position on corporate lobbying/PAC money I will simply not be able to.

    I pray that Obama can overcome the sleazy tactics of division so favored by the Clintons and be able to secure the nomination so that I can preserve my twenty something year affiliation with the Democratic Party.

    If it is Hilary and she remains unrepentant, I will register as an Independent and probably spend the rest of my days voting with the Greens.  It is not about sour grapes....I have compromised many times before, including both times I voted for Bill Clinton.  It is about personal integrity.....not Hilary's, for that is, in all probability, a lost cause.  Shave her head and put a sign around her neck with the words "corporate collaborator." In my actions I will be seeking to preserve my own integrity by recognizing that John Edwards was right....the system is badly, perhaps irrepairably, broken. A vote for the Clintons is, in fact, a vote for the continuation of the "two Americas."
