I devoted a paragraph the other day to the asinine practice of trashing fellow Democrats in the Primary. It’s beyond short-sighted, its patently stupid. If you are a Clinton supporter, I have news for you….Obama is not the enemy. If you want to know a little about the real enemy, read this. It was printed last August, but it may be more relevant now. Theres a name in that article you do not want to skip over, if you care about your candidate. The name is Arthur Finklestein, and he is a Republican political operative of the worst kind. Yes, Obama will have an army of 527s against him as well, and he may or may not be as adept at fending them off as Hillary.
I am prepared to work hard for either candidate. When I talk to uncommitted people, especially bloggers, I am well positioned to make my case for Hillary Clinton, even though I have publicly stated I voted for Obama in the primary. The reason I can do this is because you will find nothing disparaging about either candidate on this blog. I had a choice to make, and I did so, and stated my reasons for it. I have a preference, thats it.
There is a great deal at stake in the General Election, so a win is extremely important to me as a citizen. As a person, how we win is of more importance. I truly believe our country is poised to rally behind not just change, but real leadership that includes keeping citizens informed of what is at stake, without exaggeration or misrepresentation. Even the media will come around.
Already, I’m hearing about what a bloodbath Pennsylvania will be. Do people really think anybody besides a whorish media benefits from that? We’ll need to put forth a message in the General that resonates with voters. Lets get to work on that, shall we?
