I can’t believe the hit-pieces are getting so much play around here today. Rather than posting diaries in support of one candidate or another, people are getting rec’d for posting attacks on our candidates and in all honesty, I think it does a disservice to the declared purpose of this community - promoting Democratic candidates.

I've always thought that if you want to see where a candidate will take us, look at where they've been.  To that end I’ve tried to provide links to Hillary's voting record in any diary I post about her – which by the way is one of the MOST PROGRESSIVE RECORDS IN THE SENATE.  But I suspect that many don’t follow the links.  They’d rather wallow in their ignorance rather than look at the facts – it allows them to continue under the misperception that Hillary is the devils spawn or something.

So rather than post yet ANOTHER link to her record I’m gonna lay it out in all its progressive glory - make the jump with me if you wanna be an informed citizen of this community...

Contrary to popular belief, she vote against CAFTA – twice.  She did NOT support the bankruptcy bill but in fact spoke out against it.  (She only missed that vote because Bill was having heart surgery at the time).  That's setting straight just a couple of the many misperceptions regarding her record, which is nearly identical to Obama's (just 2 votes separate the two) and it's more progressive than Edwards was.  If spoon-feeding her record to folks is what it’s gonna take then here ya go...

I’ve also been posting links that compares her record to Obama’s and Edwards records.  In the case of Obama’s – only two votes separate the two of them.  They’re nearly identical.  There’s more daylight between her and Edwards’ voting records, and if you take a close look you’ll realize that Hillary’s got the more progressive record of the two.  

Look, if you want to get an idea as to where a candidate will take us, just look at where she’s been.  This voting record tells a story that’s very different from that being portrayed in the top diaries here today.  Please – take a good look at her record and then decide for yourself whether she’s progressive enough to deserve your support in the primaries.

But please dear goddess, don’t rely on partisan hit pieces full of distortion and spin for your information.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
