    Have you seen the dribble that some of the Obama people have been passing for intelligent debate on this diary?

      So, if you can come up with some good zingers (preferably better than "Knowing that I touched a nerve makes me feel good."), I might give you an actual tip.  I reward creativity, which has been fleeting at best lately.

      But as far as the BHO/HRC supporter wars, (as an Edwards supporter) I've tried to not get too deep into it.  HRC p*ssed me off last year at yKos and then with Lieberman-Kyl, and firmly seated herself in 8th place in my Democratic Candidate rankings.

      I was hoping for an actual liberal as our candidate, but failing that, someone who can unite the country.  Going negative on other candidates and proclaiming that my state doesn't matter is hardly a way to engender my support.  Besides, she'll destroy us downticket in my state.

      But yeah, the debates between supports have been a bad joke of late.  This is why I prefer (and rec) positive candidate diaries by Alegre when she writes them but pan attack diaries (again by Alegre when she writes them).

      Meh.

      (Oh, and I was here for the Dean wars so this isn't new.  Just LONGER.)

        I was badly outnumbered in this diary. Given the sheer volume of snark I had to produce, I think I did well.  I'm a high school teacher, so I've been forced to learn to think on my feet.

        I wish we had candidates who were more liberal as well.  Hillary isn't perfect for me, but I have very personal reasons for supporting her candidacy.  You can read about it here if you wish.

        In my heart, I really liked the idea of Edwards, but I was always afraid that he came off as too angry to really connect with voters.

        Together, we will turn promises into action, words into solutions and hope into reality.
