      I didn't.  I don't rec candidate diaries anymore, of any stripe.

      You aren't even obligated to be civil in discussion with those you disagree with.  But folks are more likely to try and engage you, and respect your choice of candidate, when you don't act like an asshole.

      Dismissing your opposition here smacks of being cheap and petty.  That inevitability crap stuck in my craw when HRC used it, and it pisses me off when I see Senator Obama's supporters use a variant on it.

      Your candidate is arguably the best choice we've had for President in a long time.  He's dynamic, classy, and inclusive.  Why sully that?

        I think it is legitimate to criticize the "woe is me" attitude of the diarist, for the reasons given above.
        However, I sometimes AM a jerk without realizing it, so I have to rely on other people to tell me when it happens. So tone-wise, I grant I was being a jerk
