Gore is to Bush as Clinton is to…

28 08 2008
Oh Democrats, you’re so cute.
Thank you, Senator Clinton.

Thank you, Senator Clinton.

Many reasons were cited for Gore’s loss in 2000. One factor was of course Nader. But Nader alone could not have broken that camel’s back. Half the country voted for the other guy – twice – and the Dems still haven’t gotten their shit together. In baseball, one cannot blame the last batter for losing the entire game – there are 8 other players on the team.

Likewise, PUMA is just one of many players. The people who make up PUMA existed long before this summer, and will continue to live on for the next 20-40-60 years, even if the organization does not. 40 years ago the “hippies” got pissed and made great sacrifices to bring about change. Where could we be in 40 years if PUMA takes the same path?

I understand that HRC needs to appear to support BHO 200%, but those references to “keep fighting” and “don’t give up” along with what she did NOT say made me crack a smile.

She asked if we were in it “just for her” and not the mother, daughter, woman etc.. which in NO WAY spells out, “this election is bigger than me so vote for Obama” …

All it spells out is, “this election is bigger than me” – which it is.

Her losing now, like Gore losing in 2000, will have ramifications far beyond what she can control and I’d bet a shiny nickel that she’s thrilled about it on some level.

On another level she’s pretty bummed I bet – which is understandable. So am I.
