A (very liberal) friend who was a strong Hillary supporter told me over the weekend that she would be supporting McCain instead. When I asked her why, she was vague.....so,

If you are a Democrat/Liberal/Progressive and had been a Hillary supporter, what has made you change over to McCain?

Can you give specific policy examples?

The only reason I can come up with why a, "very liberal" (as you describe) would vote for McCain was that they possibly incurred a concussion?

Did you friend fall down recently?

She was a precinct chair for Hillary! I know. If I didn't know her so well, I'd say she'd been kidnapped by aliens.

Easily manipulated maybe?

Maybe she is not smart enough to not see through the rumers in the GOP's phone calls and chain emails.

Some people are in it so much for "their side" or "their candidate" they just go off the deep end when they lose. She may be just taking the Hillary's loss out on her fellow Dems. Both Hillary and Obama had almost identical platforms.


There is actually one of these "rare birds" on this forum, but I suspect it's just a right wing poster's sock puppet.

That makes sense.

I'd be interested in know how she can switch over to McCain with Sarah Palin on the ticket?? That's what turned me. If your friend had half a brain and truly supported Hillary, she would write in Hillary instead of being a brat.

I'll ask her why she didn't do that. Great point.

If Obama wins he will get two terms in office. If McCain wins that will give Hillary another chance in 2012.
