    What people need to keep in mind, is that how a theoretical Clinton victory comes about will effect whether or not Obama folks would vote for her or not.

    Despite the rehtoric that get's exchanged between Obama and Hillary supporters, I think most people fundamentally value fairness. If there was some way she could win the nomination, without being handed it by the superdelegates or stealing pledge delegates, there wouldn't be a tenth of the hard feelings created as it will if it is seen as if she gained the nomination in a fundamentally unfair way.

    Obama supporters: Those under 45, white progressives (the democratic wing of the democratic party), blacks ect. may prefer Obama. But if Obama had lost the delegate race, most would accept Clinton. It will be the utter unfairness and hypocracy involved in any potential Clinton win that will keep them away from the polls for most, not Clinton herself.

    As Obama said, even his 6-year old can tell what's fair and what's not, and one of the things that draws many people to the Democratic party in the first place is that we don't treat Darwin like a God when it comes to society, and demonize him when it comes to everything
