Can't All Democrats Just Get Along

With the race gaining a little momentum as a result of Hillary's wins in Texas and Ohio it is anticipated that the democratic race for the nomination is about to become a straight dog fight! Technically there is no way for Clinton or Obama to win the nomination off of pledged delegate votes according to the numbers. Therefore it is official now that Super Delegates are going to play the determining role of who will get the Democratic nomination. So let the tongue lashing begin as John McCain sits back and chills! It already has began actually. Let's take a look at some of the things that have been said since Tuesday March 4th....

Well I hate to be the one to say it but what the hell we know that Senator Clinton has thrown most of the blows in this political battle. One of the first things that rubbed me the wrong way was her sarcastic statement that "The skies will open, the light will come down, celestial choirs will be singing and everyone will know we should do the right thing and the world will be perfect." So let me get this straight if we vote for you the world will be perfect? Well Hill if that was the case babes I'd definitely be casting the ballot with your name as my selection but I am afraid it's not and that statement shows it even further. In addition her Saturday Night Live attack on Senator Obama was also one that I could have done without. In this skit she says how the press is giving Obama a free ride. REALLY?! I aint know because every chance they get they using his middle name to try to make reference to him being a muslim which he is not among other things. Believe me Hill, he is getting attacked too. It's just that Senator Clinton brings so much more damn attention to herself, with the help of her husband, often she is an easy target in the press. Especially when your car is running down people in your security entourage. I mean c'mon!

Now the lady senator has a little confidence because FINALLY she got some primary wins. Forget the fact she only won by 10 delegates....right! I mean if you win Ohio clearly you are going to win the nomination, correct? I don't think so. I think it could be a coincidence that most candidates that win Ohio win the nomination so don't bank on that one too much Hillary. LOL This whole thing is truly entertaining to me. And according to one of Obama's spokespeople Senator Clinton now thinks it is necessary to call Senator Obama on the late night tip and challenge his views on national security. Chick, are you for real?! Like c'mon!

Then there is Obama's constant gnagging of the Clinton's to turn over their tax information. What is so hard about this? Just turn it over unless you have something to hide. And let's not forget the biggest and most recent attack on Clinton from the Obama camp by Ms. Samantha Powers. Samantha Power, the executive director and founder of the Carr Center for Human Rights Policy at Harvard, is touring Europe to promote a book, and she gave an interview with The Scotsman, which quotes her saying of Clinton, "We f***** up in Ohio. In Ohio, they are obsessed and Hillary is going to town on it, because she knows Ohio's the only place they can win. She is a monster, too -- that is off the record -- she is stooping to anything. Granted Ms. Powers many may agree with your statements I do not think it is too appropriate to say darling, on or off the record. As a result of course Senator Obama decided to let ol Samantha go. He is determined to keep his campaign positive he says even if Senator Clinton continues to attack him.

This brings me to my crucial point. McCain has got 2 democratic rivals that are going into 6-7 weeks of negative campaigning. Does one have to tear another down in order to win the nomination? This is a time when the party is supposed to become united so it is more of a thriving force to beat the Republicans in November but with the constant bickering due to the closeness and severity of the race it seems to be putting a huge dent in the progress of the democrats taking back the White House. McCain's campaign is really not that strong especially due to Bush's recent endorsement as well as the fact that this year's primary voting is one of the lowest turnouts for Republican voters due to the fact that they really didn't like any of the candidates according to correspondents on NPR. However, because of all the negative press following the democratic campaigns McCain is looking more promising to some voters. Plus now with the recent issues of Michigan and Florida controversy it looks like the party may still have a little more trouble than they thought taking back the White House. There has not been this much rivalry in the democratic camp since Kennedy and Carter states Harold Ickies the senior campaign advisor to Senator Clinton.

This democrat is trying to stay hopeful!

This race to the whitehouse is beyond interesting. With the democrats fighting each other, I feel it gives the republicans more advantage.
The race after the democratic nominations are set, is going to be uglier.

I got a feeling the Republicans got some secret weapon. Hussein this or something but Barack is half white. So funny how ppl forget this, but its goes back to the one drop rule.
My personal campaign is
Anything But McCain. I look at this dude, and I feel like he can't even identify with my needs or want. I need this ecomony to change. I need us to be in the right country fighting war. I need us to come up with some freakin alternatives to freakin GAS. I hate to say it but looking at his old wrinkled ass makes me think of slavery. McCain could careless about the Minority vote, black, Asian, female, etc. He is pure example of the Good Ole Boy network.

Down with the freakin GOOD OLD boys. I want to toss in up in the White House. ABM!

Geraldine Ferraro states that if Barack Obama were a white man or a woman he would not be doing as good as he is! It is simply because the nation is caught up! In what?? Someone who may actually CHANGE the way this country runs?! I know they aint caught up in the fact that he's black, right Gerry. After all you proclaim that you are not a racist and you don't understand the uproar that your comments are causing. And besides is the country really excited about the candidate being black or what he really represents and the change he wants to initiate?
