You forgot... there are people that don't want harmony, that want revenge... those people would be the Obama supporters.

I respect everyone initially until I find out that they are either racist or no longer deserving of that respect. My apologies to anyone I have offended in the past with my comments. Each of us is entitled to our opinions.

So, I will merely say that I have a great deal of respect and admiration for those here enlightened enough to support the great Barack Obama. You know who you are if you have in the past gotten rep points from me. This country needs more like us and only progresses because of people like us. Kudos to all the Obama supporters who post here!

Barack Obama is a brilliant man, perhaps too brilliant for this country. His own party is not even progressive enough to support him, instead trying to hold faith in a dead candidate in Hillary because they are not sure they want a black man representing the party. I am very disappointed in the Dem party and if somehow Hillary is allowed to sneak in, I will for the first time consider the Democrats and the Republicans to be essentially two sides of the same coin. I have already converted to Independent in anticipation. Hillary and McCain are both far inferior to Obama.

Hillary is the negative, divisive factor. She must play this role because Obama has her beat in all areas substantive. She must try to minimize him so he is not so high above her. Her supporters reflect this inferior position and sense of desperation, and like those who voted for Bush HAVE ALWAYS BEEN WRONG IN THEIR ANALYSIS OF HILLARY'S RELEVANCE.

I think it's amusing to watch the spectacle unfolding in the democratic party.
Here you have two people running for the highest office in the land, and what do they do, they ruin it with their brand of "toughness".
As a conservative, it really is fun to watch these two destroy the democratic party!
We all need to practice some civility in life, whether in politics, religion, daily life, etc..
Regardless of political persuasion, we've lost genuine respect for others in this great country over the past 40 years..

While I am on the opposite side of the fence as you politically, I could not agree with you more here.

Come on super delegates, make a decision one way or the other and lets get going on to more important issues!!!

Gee, I didn't know I wanted revenge........ and revenge for what, by the way?

Getting a little off topic here.....

LuckyGem stated, this is an anonymous forum. And I just laugh a little every time I see some of these posts, because I know some can state how they really feel on here and not even mention anything to anyone in real life.
Don't ya just love the internet?
