    as divisions along race and gender deepen.




    “The potential for anger is more pronounced -- and the consequences more dire -- than in most campaigns because this contest is being waged along the fault lines of gender and race, with the would-be first female president versus the would-be first black president.

    Valerie Zavala, 38, said that as soon as she identified herself as a Clinton supporter, Obama backers demanded to know why she had even bothered showing up. "There's a lot of hostility," she said. "I see a lot of tension



    Folks, it’s getting rough out there. I’ve seen some of it firsthand at the malls, in the neighborhood, at work.

    Getting rid of this failed republican administration and their policies is important, no wonder there is tough talk. Democrats are not ideological partisans who back anyone so long as R is tattooed on their forehead.

    Prepare for incoming. I posted the one about Hillary backers boycotting some lameass liberal website because of how Obama supporters were treating them and managed to get everything attacked but the issue itself.

    LMAO! Right. Seems like your first sentence directly contradicts your last.:eusa_think:

    When all is saide and done, y'all will march right out in lockstep and vote for the "D", even if it's Baby Huey.

    Both sides are equally guilty of it. When all is said and done, it always ends up being about keeping the other party out of office.

    Both sides had way better choices then what is currently left, but they chose to let the media make their decision for them, and now it's ONCE AGAIN become the lesser of evils choice, combined with the "beat the other side" choice.

    This is what you picked, America. Deal with it.

    Sad but true. That is EXACTLY what it's about nowadays. It hasn't been about voting "for" someone since 1980/84. It's about trying to keep the biggest cuckoo out.

    The choices now are probably the worst since Ford - Carter.

    Even the "Independents" are confused. McCain has this appearance of being "bi-partisan", and meeting the other side half way, but in reality he's not meeting the Dems halfway, he's driving all the way to their house and sleeping in their beds.

    Amnesty for illegal immigrants who are saturating our already depleating workforce, and potentially threatening our security? It doesn't get much more extreme than that.

    If you want to sell out this country and it's citizens just to "meet halfway", or just to keep a Dem out, then you deserve everything bad that might happen to you in the future because of it.

    Some truth, but the proof is in the pudding and Clinton's eight were a helluva lot better than Bush's seven and counting. There is a difference even though I admit it is tough to see sometimes.

    That isn't true at all. We voted FOR Clinton. It was only the rabid right who had issues with him... stupid issues, but issues nonetheless.

    I think an extended primary is making Obama a better candidate. That's the upside of it. He is really hitting his stride, and is a much better candidate than he was 12 months ago.
