    I know some who totally adored Bill and would be happy to see Hillary as POTUS because of her strengths and would see Bill as a plus.
    But my mom was one of those. She LOVED the Clintons. She even made a collage of 100s of pictures of them from the 90s from magazines. She always defended Bill and said she would have voted for him a third, forth and fifth time.
    But, mom who started out totally behind Hillary, shocked me by switching to Edwards and shocked me even further by becoming completely enthralled by Obama.
    Mom is a 65 year old "yellow dog" Democrat. Every time I ask her about Hillary...she just rolls her eyes and says "Dear. Lord". Mom has covered her vehicle in Obama stickers. If the Clintons can loose my mom, then I just don't know.

      think about this stuff as much as people like us do - at least that is my experience.  A lot of my friends write or call me when they decide to focus, but when I bring stuff up I find that few are really paying close attention - even the ones who do actually take time out of their busy lives to keep up.

        got distracted and hit post before I finished -

        The reality is that a lot of people just don't have super strong feelings one way or another - which is a good thing really because while the media is trying to build up our convention as a bloody battle - I think that amongst the greater population of Democratic voters, we aren't going to see a huge backlash against either of these candidates when the nomination is settled.  We will here if Clinton gets the nod, but most normal people (lol) will probably go with the flow - the one thing that enters into this dynamic is that most normal people (lol again) are aware that the real threat is another Republican in the White House - not Obama or Clinton.

          If Hillary does get our nomination, I will still vote for her as will mom and even my aunt who openly loathes Hillary. We vote Dem.
