Above is Isaiah's The World Today Just Nuts "Dirty Debbie" and below is Hillary is 44's "'NObama' Say Hillary Clinton Voters:"
The “maybe not” might be due to Hillary Clinton voters. Why Hillary Clinton voters?:
“For a striking number of Democrats, May 31, 2008, is a day that lives in infamy. It marked the moment that the national party’s rules committee dealt a deathblow to Hillary Clinton’s bid to win the presidential nomination over Barack Obama.Gayle Allegro is not alone. There are many like her in Florida and in Pennsylvania. Big Media calls us the “bitter” and the “clinging” but usually forgets to add “determined”. And that determination is a Gayle force wind spitting in the face of Barack Obama’s reelection chances:
The committee, weighted with Obama loyalists, issued a unanimous decision amid whispered back-door deals.
The date “will not be forgotten,” according to Gayle Allegro, a Democrat from Pine Island, Fla. – which is why Allegro was frosted by last week’s announcement that Bill Clinton will be the keynote speaker at the Democrats’ national convention next month.
“If Obama and his crew think that having Bill Clinton give a speech is going to sway all the Democrats that left the party in 2010 or just slipped into the shadows, they are mistaken,” she said.
“Do they really think we are that stupid, that we don’t see what is going on?”
“Allegro, 60, is one of those women who break glass ceilings. She has lived in Europe, North Africa and Israel, and she was one of the first women to work as a laborer on the Alaska oil pipeline while earning a master’s degree in economic geology.Republicans/conservatives who don’t understand that anger, that determined motivated anger and resolve are missing an important opportunity. Mitt Romney appears to understand he has a strong chance of winning over Hillary Clinton voters and does not miss a chance to praise certain aspects of the Bill Clinton presidency, Hillary Clinton’s work ethic, and the fact that Barack Obama is no Bill Clinton. It’s a smart move by Mitt Romney:
In 2008, most Democrats sucked up their sense of personal loss regarding Hillary and voted for Obama because the idea of handing Republicans another four years in the White House was just too awful to bear, said Lara Brown, an electoral-college expert at Villanova University.
“Nevertheless, they had reservations about Obama’s leadership skills and experience,” Brown said.
By 2010, that allegiance waned and Clinton Democrats were the deciding factor that removed Democrats from power in the U.S. House, closed the margin in the U.S. Senate, and flipped state legislatures and governor’s mansions to Republicans across the country.
I'm not a "White voter" -- that's who the press is tracking. But I am on record already stating that plans to vote for a third party ticket go out the window on election day if the race looks close. As I've said before, if it looks close, I'll vote for Mitt Romney. Do some of that strategic voting I.F. Stone advised decades ago.
If Barack is not rebuked, the Democratic Party gets even less about the grass roots Democrats. We either send a clear message that the last four years do not cut it, or we accept that we're encouraging the party to get weaker and more and more entrenched with corporate interests.
So I will vote for Roseanne or Jill Stein on election day . . . unless it looks like Barack's going to get a second term. At which point, my vote goes to Mitt Romney.
I am not calling a vote for a third party a waste. I am not saying that. I am saying that this is what I will do. And I've spent nearly 4 years thinking about it.
I encourage everyone to vote in the way that makes them comfortable.
That even means if you want to vote for Barack.
One thing C.I. has sort of instilled in all of us in her 8 years online is that your vote it your vote.
You use it (which can include not voting) as you see fit and it is not my job to hector you or ridicule you for your decision.
