    Oh yeah, a whole lotta hollow posturing...


    "As The Times' Michael Finnegan detailed today, initial signs indicate that many women voters who had supported Hillary Clinton's presidential quest are more quickly and willingly lining up behind Barack Obama than many analysts had anticipated. And one conversion is bound to get a lot of attention -- the Obama campaign has announced that additions to its staff include Patti Solis Doyle, who for more than a year managed Clinton's bid."

    Women voters lining up behind Obama
    McCain hopes to lure Clinton loyalists. But polls show they are staying Democratic.
    By Michael Finnegan
    Los Angeles Times Staff Writer

    June 16, 2008

    Marilyn Authenreith, a mother of two in North Carolina, felt strongly about supporting Hillary Rodham Clinton in the Democratic presidential primary.

    But once the former first lady quit the race, Authenreith switched allegiance to Barack Obama, mainly because she thinks that he -- unlike Republican John McCain -- will push for universal healthcare.

    "I can't understand the thinking of how someone would jump from Hillary to McCain," she said. "It doesn't make any sense."

    Now that the Democratic marathon is over, Clinton supporters like Authenreith are siding heavily with Obama over McCain, polls show. And Obama has taken a wide lead among female voters, belying months of political chatter and polls of primary voters suggesting that disappointment over Clinton's defeat might block the Illinois senator from enjoying his party's historic edge among women.

    Is there a reason for this thread other than to display your sexism? Of course, Clinton's female supporters will now back Obama. That is the reasonable and logical thing to do. There was never a whole lot of difference between the two. Just that Hillary was the better qualified.

    Tell that to Ravi. Her and her "enemy of her enemy" friends here have been making claims to the contrary for quite some time now.

    Now you're just going to lie about what I've posted?

    I might not vote for Obama. I don't recall saying that none of Hillary's supporters wouldn't. My main discussion about the topic was to point out that Florida could easily go for McCain since it is a swing state anyway.

    I have posted several times here that in the end that most Dems will fall behind the nominee.

    I believe she said a long time ago that she would support Obama if he won the nomination.

    Why are you being so divisive? Are you secretly for McCain? :lol:

    I remember that too. But she's been slowly changing her tune as it became more apparent that Obama would be the nominee.
