Answer the following:
Is she broke?
Does she have to spend the 23 million she has in her general election campaign fund prior to receiving the nomination if she is to elect public funding?
Does she have any fund raising operation set up for the general election that might exceed the 85 million she would get from public funding?
Does she have a national campaign organization?
Does she have regional and state organizations set up?
Does she have her issues team in place?
Does she have the ability to get people to work for her who still have not been paid from the primaries?
Is Obama coordinating the now successful DNC fundraising?
With a deflated ego will Obama become the slave to master Hillary and give her his organization and fund raising abilities?

Yup she gets the nomination and falls so flat on her face that when the right starts their smear campaign she can barely afford a You Tube video to counter.

Go Hillary really create a legacy.

knowledge in this forum? At times yes but all to often the visceral flows and the cerebral goes down.

If Hillary was the nominee, I would be voting for John McCain. No way I'll ever support her.

Obama 08!

And nearly 1/4 of Hillary supporters say they will vote for McCain or stay home versus voting for Clinton. Polls have shown the same number around 11-13% for Obama supporters if Clinton was the nominee.

The first time it was posted several days ago on other websites. I don't really care for Rick Astley.

But we'll more than make up for their loss with the indepedents that Obama will pick up. And Obama is competetive in Colorado, Indiana, and Virginia. Hillary is not.

Besides, I have a strong suspicion most of those Hillary supporters are concentrated in states like Arkansas, West Virginia, and Kentucky. States where Obama has no chance in winning anyway. *shrugs shoulders* Oh well. No big loss.

Many were Republicans or Independents who lived in states with closed primaries and had to switch registration to Democrat to be able to vote in the Democratic primary and support Hillary as the first woman candidate.
