You have no idea how many good old boys really can't handle the truth. It was for the best at the time because without it you'd have witch hunt city messing with esprit de corps. They're still banging heads having to take orders from women for crimminy sake.

I still have my Hillary "You Go Girl" Button. DH says it will be a collectors' item, but I am holding onto it for '12.

It will be Obama's undoing, wait and see.

Okay, so all of you who were Hillary voters in the primary, who did you vote for in the general election then?

It's not like she isn't in charge, anyway. Just like Cheney was.

I voted for Ron Paul in the primaries.
I really thought Americans would have been fed up with the TARP vote in Oct 2008 to rally for change.

All during the campaign though..Ron Paul was my first choice and Hillary was my second.

I think the push-back on Hillary would have been less. Whether it's pure racism, cultural disassociation or what, Obama has certainly brought out the worst in America's lesser half.

Maybe Hillary wouldn't have been fillibustered so completely, and maybe the American public would have 'related' to her more.

She is a skilled governor unlike all the businessmen on the Right who have no interest in such things (beyond tax cuts and deregulation).

Thanks for your response. I wonder who the other Hillary backers voted for though when they say "Don't blame me, I voted for Hillary". Because they could not have voted for her in the general, and I'm assuming many of the Hillary fans ended up begrudgingly backing Obama in the end.

More Hawkish??? Obama is still Iraq and Afghanistan mean while he is hitting Pakistan daily. The wars are the main cause of the deficit and yet we need to be more hawkish
