    They've already swallowed that pill if they're willing to even consider McCain

      ...most haven't.

      I really think the "I care about Hillary more than the party" angle among Clinton supporters is being exaggerated in the media.

      The vast majority will vote for Obama, and, indeed, the polls already show the party coming together.

      My sister, who's far more conservative than me but generally votes Dem because choice is her drop-dead issue (she supported Giuliani wholeheartedly), told me she was leaning McCain.

      It took a LOT of research and sending her things to convince her that McMaverick wasn't "stealth pro-choice who really can't come out and say that because he's a Republican." She really believed that. I had to overwhelm her with data to get her to not believe it.

      How many other people think it? People not as savvy as my sister, and without a brother to send them research to prove it wrong?

      The flip-flop meme has taken hold, and sometimes in ways that don't benefit us. Because McCain did flip-flop on abortion....but it was something like 20 years ago. Unless people get that explained, they can figure, like Sis did, "Oh, he'll just flip again."

      Remember: if it's close, they'll steal it.
