    ters. She is one person. She has obviously lost her bearings. She has been "out of the news" for over 20 years until recently. She was "let go" from the Clinton campaign.

    Obama will win. So let Hillary do what she wants. She is not getting the coverage. Like it or not, we need Hillary supporters to win. They are expressing outrage and grief over their loss.

      ...Ferraro doesn't represent Hillary supporters, yet the first handful of Obama supporters here the diarist picks out represent all Obama supporters? Come on.

      •  Nope. (0+ / 0-)

        Diarist didn't say "all" and he didn't say "some" or "a few". So s/he could have been clearer. I generally infer "some" unless "ALL" is written.

        The diarist was criticizing people on THIS site, and he gave specific examples. That's called backing up your argument.

        Being "right" about ALL of Hillary's MANY flaws will not win over her supporters to vote for Obama. But too many of us "elite" bloggers feel being "right" is more important than winning. Kind of like Nader voters in 2000!

        So I prefer to keep my critiques of Hillary to a minimum, and extend open arms to welcome Hillary supporters to actually win this election.

          "it will be the fault of Obama supporters not uniting the party"

          I'm sorry, but it is not the fault of Obama supporters that people like Geraldine Ferraro and the "Clinton Supporters Count Too" crowd are failing to unite behind our nominee. You seem to be saying that by responding to divisiveness they are causing divisiveness. The cause can't come after the effect, man.

          Like I said, some Obama supporters should be better winners. Fine. But they're the ones responsible for bullshit like that? Not a chance.

    •  Hillary should address this (0+ / 0-)

      Now that she has said she might not vote for Obama, HRC should express regret that someone like Geraldine has ever been associated with her.  This is beyond the pale for a public Democrat.  It is far worse than some anonymous person saying something uncivil on the internet.
