    for Hillary haven't been given a fair hearing.  This campaign has been going on for a long time, and people on DailyKos (and other blogs) have heard Hillary out and have made up their damn minds!  It seems like you want to cry foul and demand that people "keep an open mind" and not make a decision, just because you don't like the decisions they've already made.

    That's silly.

    •  I respectfully disagree (5+ / 0-)

      MANY people on Daily Kos have made up their minds, and decided for Obama.  But, unless, I missed some new rule, such a majority opinion does not prohibit expression of other opinions or analysis of other candidates.  If I have missed some new rule, please point it out.

      If you refuse to vote for OUR PARTY'S nominee in November, the blood of a thousand back-alley abortions will be on your hands.

        or close-minded or anything like that.  It seems like that was being implied by the wailing that "nobody on DailyKos likes Hillary!"

        People here made up their minds, and they don't agree with you.  There's nothing "unfair" about it.

        •  actually... (0+ / 0-)

          that's not completely true.

          There are quite a few Kossacks who do agree with him...including at least on Front Pager who voted for HRC. Some are still around but really avoid the candidate diaries. Others have left due to the toxic atmosphere. Still others are rather vocal about their support.

          Granted their numbers do not meet the large % of Kossacks who are currently part of the Obama craze.

          And frankly, I've made up my mind. And I don't agree with you.

          I think they are both good candidates who deserve better than some of the dreck that has passed as candidate support.
