You've hit it on the head.

We are a nation divided. Forty percent of Pennsylvanians said they would not vote for Senator Obama if he were to win the nomination. Forty percent carry that same, vindictive spirit that Hillary has.

The Clintons have done more to destroy the Democratic Party and alienate the black vote than they ever did to build it.

They tapped into the very fear of White America. A black man having oversight over them. Hillary can have her PA victory. She won it. But my respect, she can never win now.

The chasm is dividing, and it's just sad.

I couldn't agree more. A vote for Hillary Clinton in any primary is like a vote for McCain in November. With the huge turnout (especially of the young) that an Obama nomination would bring, he has the far better chance of winning for the Democrats; not to mention the fact that he is a far more progressive candidate. The Republicans are salivating over each Clinton primary win--they know each of her victories brings McCain that much closer to the White House.

If Hillary were honest her campaign slogan would be " VOTE WHITE, SAVE AMERICA!"
