Hillary – The Gift For McCain That Keeps On Givin’

Ugh. Does everyone feel like that this morning? I do and it’s not because of the three glasses of wine I had, either. The foreshadowing last night provides as to what’s in front of us makes me want to hit the bottle again and it’s only 10 in the morning! The Democrats might just turn into New Guinea cannibals if that’s the measure it takes for personal glory. Hillary already has blood all over her face.

Alright, alright. I’ll say it. She deserves to stay in the race. The results last night by no means require her to step aside in the name of Democratic success. She wouldn’t do it anyway. I think she probably would have taken Texas and Ohio by a slight margin without all the negative ads and ridiculous answers on 60 Minutes and reprehensible comments saying she and McCain have life experiences and Obama just has a speech. She’s beginning to make me ill. But, Texas and Ohio are slow to change their ways – especially in TX with the cultural divide between Latinos and African-Americans. And the race continues.

Now Axelrod and Obama are going to have to decide how down and dirty they want to go in response. They’ll take into consideration the health of the party in the general election, unlike Hillary, before making this decision. And, believe you me, there is plenty of meat for them to throw in Hillary’s face – plenty. In fact, they don’t even have to get dirty, but can simple reiterate time and time again her singular focus on personal victory rather than ensuring the Democrats succeed in November.

The fact is that Hillary’s willing to stop at nothing for the nomination – trying to seat Florida and Michigan, leaning on the superdelegates, and ripping Obama to shreds whenever she can. The reality and results of such actions will reveal itself if she wins the nomination and people are so disgusted, they either don’t vote or the independents head over McCain’s direction.

She should be on notice now that if the Republicans win the general election, it will be her fault and everyone will blame her. She’ll be vilified worse than Nader ever was.

I’m all for the Democratic process and I’ll get over the events of last night, but if the next few months devolve into a frenzy that sucks all the enthusiasm out of the Democratic Party and McCain wins and stacks the Supreme Court and abortion is criminalized and the tax cuts for the wealthy are made permanent and the war in Iraq continues for years and big business gets even bigger and trade gets more and more unfair, I will never forgive her. For staying in it, I can forgive, for going negative and attacking, not a chance.

Think about that, Hillary.

    I woke up this morning to see a fellow Highbrid Nation writer reporting that Hillary has won the Ohio and Texas primaries and how this is getting bad. And like him I feel like this battle between Obama and Hillary has went on too long and now they are in danger of hurting the party by allowing McCain to take shots at them while they are dealing with each other. Howard Dean should step in and say “Look, Obama is going to be the canidate and Hillary you can be his running mate if you choose”…I know I know that would never happen but a guy can dream right?

    I’ll vote for that IF it’s Hillary as the candidate and Obama as running mate.

    And for her to actually say she and McCain will bring a lifetime of experience and Obama, a speech he wrote in ’02, hiniting that McCain is better than Obama. I’m amazed at the length this women will go to, to lock this nomination. There is nothing wrong with putting up a good fight, but since she will never catch up in the delegates count, why not let it go now for the good of the party?
