So Obama doesn't vote the way you like on FISA, and you throw a fit.  Then Hillary votes how you like and panders to you on top of it, stoking your collective fire and making you angry at Obama all over again.  Some of you even regret having Obama as the nominee.  You don't think it's possible that Hillary had alterior motives for her vote?  That maybe she wanted to get one last shot in at the man who ended her Oval office dream?  The Clintons would bever do something like that, would they?

Obama is not perfect.  No candidate is.  But did he call social security a disgrace?  Did he say the casualties in Iraq "aren't that important"?  Did he make jokes about killing Iranian civilians or not know the difference between Shia and Sunni?  I think some of you have forgotten just how damn important this election is.  I cannot survive another four years of a Republican president.  I cannot wait for the perfect candidate.  I am unemployed, up to my neck in debt, and draft eligible.  I need change now, and I will not let you ruin it!  Get over your damn hissy fit and get behind Obama!

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.
