Memo to my fellow Democrats: Dump the Clintons--now!
Every Democratic Party platform embraces tolerance and embraces diversity and eschews racism and bigotry. Senator Barack Obama has been the victim of vicious, hateful, racist, religiously bigoted e-mail and whisper campaigns. Senator Clinton’s campaign has on multiple occasions aided and abetted this attack. Several Clinton campaign officials, including Bill Clinton, have attempted to malign Obama’s reputation. When given a chance to "reject and denounce" the hateful e-mail campaign, Senator Clinton qualified her response (“not that I know of”) just enough to stoke the suspicions of those who stand gullibly ready to believe the e-mail slander.
Senator Clinton compounded the insult and injury by effectively endorsing John McCain over Barack Obama. Beyond making a great attack ad for the GOP, she has eliminated her own ability to campaign for Senator Obama when he becomes the Democratic nominee.
While it is clear that Republicans have voted for both Clinton and Obama, it is also clear that the Republicans who voted for Obama will return to vote for him in November. Those who voted for Clinton will not.
So, is there any principle the Democratic Party loves more than it loves the Clintons? What does the Democratic Party stand for?
Decision time, Democrats: Hope for Change with Obama or keep rolling in the mud with the Clintons. Here's a petition by some Obama supporters, to be sent to the DNC, stating that if Senator Clinton becomes the Democratic nominee for the presidential election, you will either: (a) abstain from voting in the general election; or (b) support a third-party-candidate during the general election.
