I think we all remember that night in 2008. Hope and change had come to America. In a crowd of tens of thousands in Chicago, people were crying tears of joy and emotion because a messiah had arrived to change everything.

My question is, was this odd emotional behavior simply directed for Obama, or can we expect the same sort of emotional outbursts again from Billary supporters?

I don't think so. Obama represented what both the left AND the right want to some degree. hope, and change. We differ on how we get there, but I think we all want that. And at the time, thats what people thought we were getting.

I don't see Hillary bringing that to the table. If the Republicans can bring someone to the table that does represent that, that will represent the country, and not just the extreme right, or the monied interests....you could see that sort of emotional behavior from people.

But Hillary doesn't have it from what I have seen so far.

What is this rightwing fixation with Obama being the messiah? You guys are the only ones who ever talk about it. You really need to get over your messiah-complex. It makes you look kinda silly.

People cried tears of joy when Obama was elected because another racist barrier had been removed. And if Hillary is elected many people will be crying, but their tears will be of relief that the country managed to keep a rightwing clown out of the White House again.

Tears of relief? Oh, yeah.

Now now, its not too late for the Republicans to find someone sane like Jon Huntsman.

But really with the big money involved, and the sheer disconnect between that money, and any electable candidate they are probably out of luck. I swear these people think if they throw enough money at a candidate that they can buy an election. Unfortunately for them money only goes so far. it can tilt a election, but not decide it.

They do not seem to understand this. They are used to being able to buy anything.

I wanted nothing to do with Obama's Hope and Change, and I want nothing of whatever Hillary will be offering in an attempt to win an election.
