I have a tremendous amount of respect for Hillary Clinton. She has been a very effective Senator for New York and a spokesperson for the Left. She's a fighter against the Dark Side. She has strengths and weaknesses, and so does Obama.But what the hell is going on here? I mean, there's a time to fight your cousin and there's a time to fight the infidel. McCain is the Enemy, and as Democrats we need to start getting our shit together. I may not like it that Obama has the edge in delegates, or that Hillary has more popular votes, or whatever the hell. But now that it looks like the numbers are tipping Obama's way, Hillary can help defeat McCain in the fall or she can rip the Party apart. With this speech it looks like she's promising war to the knife and the knife to the hilt. WHY??
I hope there's another explanation for this. Because if this is just about a politician and her supporters unwilling to accept defeat for the betterment of the Left as a whole it just makes me more angry, more downcast and more sure that we are as doomed as the old Roman Republic.
