“What does Hillary want? What does she want?” she asked us last night. She wants to know if and how we will support her.
What do you, one of 18 million who voted for her, want her to do? Write to Hillary! Right now! Tell Senator Clinton how much you appreciate what she has already accomplished, and let her know what you think she should do going forward. Oh, and please add to the collection plate while you’re at it.
And what will you do? Will you continue to support her? Should she take it to the Convention? Should she concede? Should she contest at the Credentials Committee the DNC RBC’s decision to rob her of votes? Should she be VP? (See Lanny Davis’ campaign: http://www.womenforfairpolitics.com.) Should she start a third party? Should she suspend her campaign and reserve her delegates? Should there be a vote on the Convention floor? Should she end her campaign now, this week? Should there be investigations of alleged improprieties reportedly pushed on voters by Obama supporters and operatives at caucuses and polling places? Should the Superdelegates put their endorsements to the side and see what happens between now and the Convention? Should she endorse Obama? Will she wait to see what falls out of Obama’s closet between now and Denver? Is the Electorate College electable?
And just last week, in light of Scott McClelland’s new Bush bashing book, the MSM gave two seconds of regret that they did not do their jobs leading up to the war. Yet again, they have seriously failed in their vetting of Obama, and given a pass to an untested candidate in crucial and dangerous times. In an election year when “we” Dems were a shoe-in to win. McCain, Karl Rove, and Fox News are just beginning to ramp it up, and I can feel the tidal wave of what’s approaching. The Repubs DO NOT WANT TO RUN AGAINST HILLARY. Again, and I’ll keep repeating it, Superdelegates can change their minds anytime up to the Convention.
Hillary has often told the electorate that she didn’t envy our decision as voters. What decisions she must face as she weighs her options within a party whose members have mostly turned their backs on her, refusing to defend her in light of unprecedented sexist, misogynist, race-baiting attacks from all corners. How they have blocked her at every turn, all the while stealing her votes, her thunder, and her record. How we all mourned when Al Gore wimped out in Y2K and didn’t take the strong stand we needed so desperately at the time. But when the Party got an experienced fighter and uniter, they conspired to take her down. And if she stayed and fought for the 18 million of us, would the MSM and Party babies cry out and magnify to the rest of the world, including the villages of Kenya, that “an entitled white woman” has stolen the election that in truth was stolen from her by an “historic black candidate” in a fancy table cloth trick?
I can only imagine the pressure she’s feeling from Pelosi and Reid et al, as their must decide immediately letter circulates through our hollowed halls of government. How many of them no longer exist for me? And yet, what can Hillary do without them in the reality of corporate power schemes? Oh, right, she vowed to investigate corporate power. Hmmm. New politics, my foot.
For all that she has stood up to, I’m fine with her taking her sweet time to weigh her options, considering the position she is in. I’m even finer seeing her make the MSM and Democrats squirm in their seats, crap and all. Hillary Clinton has won the big states, the swing states, and garnered the most popular votes of any US Presidential Primary candidate in history. Hold strong, Hillary! We’ve got your back.
