This is Obama Time

While the rest of the Main Stream Media is begging to ask who will be Barack Obama’s running mate this is not the time to ask that question. The run up of the end of the primary is still way to fresh in the heart beat of Democrat voters and the time to heal those primary wounds is now. If you had the chance to see the Unity, NH first speech between the former Presidential candidates for President on the Democrat ticket then it was a love fest. Hillary is in the Obama camp and she is ready to fight for what is right. Something she has always done throughout her political career.

Hillary Clinton is jumping on the Obama campaign and it is what a true Democrat should do. She didn’t lose the election, she participated in it. Her voice was heard loud and clear during the primary process and it is now and will be a part of this election that will work against John McCain. McCain has no weapon in his political artillery to throw up against Hillary Clinton without pointing his own Senate record at himself. A dilemma that both Barack Obama and John McCain face in this election cycle.

Many of the folks in the MSM are discounting the Hillary Clinton vote base that will transfer from Obama to McCain and that is ridiculous! Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama were so close on all of the issues that it was tantamount as a liberal or moderate voter to picking the cutest puppy of the two. Everyone loves what both of them are selling and that is the end message. Only Democrats could put up a Black man and a Women in an election process for President of the United States. Do you think for a minute that any form of the Republican political party could do that? Not in this lifetime or the next, or the next, or the next! That is the grass roots difference in this election. Democrats are about change in America and Republicans are looking at another old man that used to be a hero but morphed into more of the same because politics told him to change.

Time for change is not about Hillary Clinton or Barack Obama, it’s about the candidacy of John McCain in step with George W. Bush. President Bush is an oxymoron of America and what we are as a people. Since the days of Abraham Lincoln and probably before that this has been a nation of ideals that changed the world for the better. Change is what this nation needs and in that respect, all of the facts point to the fact that Hillary Clinton is on the same page when discussing what is best for America in her support for Barack Obama.

This election is not just about red states and blue states anymore. America is a world leader and our place in the world has been hijacked by a seriously misguided President. Our sense of America has been distorted to think that being an American is no better than being an imperialist with nation building ideology.

Hillary Clinton is cool with Barack Obama as the Democrat nominee for President. Only the MSM has a problem with that fact. Democrats should see loud and clear that “Johnny keep us in Iraq for 100 years McCain” is not the same candidate for President of the United States of America that Hillary Clinton was! Why in honest to God sense would a Clinton supporter refuse to not support someone that has almost identical issue agreement on most of the issues? Why would they think McCain is the only logical choice for President?

Simple answer to that question is that the former Clinton supporters would rather commit suicide than vote for John McCain and that is reality. Liberals in the Clinton camp do not go extreme right wing simply because the liberal candidate is no longer in the race for President. Mega Duh to the pundits tossing Hillary Clinton supporters to McCain. All of the spin doctors can spin this story all they want but I can’t think of a single Clinton supporter ever voting for a strong conservative hard line stance that ignores the American people and their thoughts of what America should be in the world. Americans should come first.

Just my opinion.

I agree with your opinion that Hiliary supporters will vote for Obama. The platform of both Democratic nominees is 180 degrees opposite of McCain/Bush. It would make no sense to cast protest vote to help the status quo. It is my hope and prayer, Obama will unite this country, as much as it can be done, to eliminate the party lines of Red and Blue. It's a tough job, but he's the only one available at this time, that has a chance to do this.

Only 53% of Clinton supporters now back Obama. 23% favor McCain.

Poll -- ignore the rather desperate spin with which the article is written, and just look at the numbers.

I think the numbers are wrong Infidel. A true liberal can never wear a John McCain suit coat. It
is still to early to tell.

Thanks for the comment my friend!

Perhaps not, but many Clinton supporters are centrists, not "true liberals". It is these swing voters who will decide the general election. Clinton won them in the primaries and could have won them in November. Obama, in my opinion, can't. That's my point.

I see your point Infidel. Check this site out for the latest polls state by state on what the Electoral College is looking like. This is probably the most accurate that I could find on the whole nations vote.
