I Told Ya So
It seems Hillary Clinton has kept her promise to enthusiastically campaign for Barack Obama, yet some of his Claymates still insist on being dicks about her.
"Yeah, she's doing it for political expediency..." ad nauseam.
As I've always said, I much prefer sore losers to sore winners.
Rather than his acolytes saying, "Hillary got 18 million votes; her endorsement is important to our candidate," still there are too many who cannot tamp down their innate hatred for her.
This whole mess has taught me one thing. Racism in America is a tiny fraction of the breadth of misogyny we've witnessed in the last year.
I've heard too many phony women haters say, "I'd vote for a woman to be president, just not THAT woman."
But when I ask which woman they WOULD support, the hemming and hawing begins.
The good part about Obama getting the nomination is that his rabid devotees will soon learn that he is just another pandering politician, like all politicians.
Just recently, he announced that he's for the death penalty.
In the months to come, watch for him to condone lots of other middle-to-rightwing policies so he can get elected.
Hillary did not invent pandering. Pandering is to politicians as ugly sports coats are to television sportscasters.
Obama needs high profile, moderate liberals like Hillary to endorse him.
When she steps forward to campaign for him, I wish his fan club would do me a favor and show a little gratitude.
