    It means that if Hillary goes off and sulks, and McCain wins and appoints conservatives to the bench, a whole lot of Democrats are going to be royally pissed off at her.

    If that happens I'll hold you personally responsible.

    This is hope and unity? Hillary gets painted as a racist, as an assassin, the DNC disenfranchises my state, now you're trying to scare me into voting for Obama?

    How is he different from Bush?

    Besides, McCain is a social liberal, righto?

    doesn't matter...we will get a super majority in the Senate, which means a filibuster and veto, bullet proof Senate ....if mccain did win, he doesn't have the votes in the Senate to get any ultra Conservative thru the advice and consent of the SEnate....

    Doesn't matter. No one who doesn't know what judicial review is should ever be president. And, yes... if he gets to take away my right to choice and institutes a draft to fight hihs permanent war and my kid gets drafted, *I* will be royally pissed.

    Why? becuase at some point Hillary will suck it up. She will make a deal for the VP's spot or some other plum. And if we don't vote for the lesser of evils, we are self-spiting idiots.

    Gee... there's an idea. :rolleyes:

    I'll just point out that statements like that are what alienates people like Ravi and Care and me.

    And if you think Obama can win without us come November, you're deluded.

    I don't want him to win, I think he can accomplish more if not assassinated!

    I think the US deserves McCain, because otherwise we as a country will never "grow up."

    So those that won't support him are not a problem for me.

    I just love children who think they know everything when they aren't even grown up yet. Makes a good argument for not allowing people to vote until they're 25.
