After a long primary season, that is wrapping up, some Clinton supporters cannot admit they have lost. But what really upsets me, is the Clinton supporters who have come to a realization that she won't win, but decide to vote McCain, or do NOTHING about it. As a former Clinton supporter, (obviously a better democrat than Clinton-ite). Let's move on! Stop bickering! But no, here in innocuous (yep) Southern Westchester, frolicking amongst stock-brokers, people are being idiots.

In this election, there are not 3 parties, but 4. Green, Republican, Obama, Clinton. Now, it is time to merge those last two into one "Democrat" party. I have been talking to people, and they will leave Clinton. But here's the catch: They just sit down and bow out. They don't care. At least 60% of the people I have talked to have said this: "I just don't think Barack can win in November." Well, instead of griping about it, get moving! Hand out fliers! Talk to friends! Don't complain!

Twiddling around on, I came up with several scenarios in which Barack can win.

  1. Win Missouri, Michigan and Nevada (with Minnesota). A difficult proposition to say the least, but achievable.
  1. Win New Hampshire, Michigan, and Indiana. Even more difficult.
  1. Win Montana, Indiana, and Ohio. (lose Michigan).

Now all these scenarios come with winning Maryland, Wisconsin and PA. So, all the people who are sitting back, need to help, now.

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.
