Not All Democrats Want To Ride Obama's Coattails

Full story: The Bully Pulpit

Barack Obama could have long coattails this fall. That doesn't mean that every Democrat is going to want to grab on to them.

These article's author is very presumtious.

Read links beloe to learn the main reason why so many people refuse to vote for Sen Obama and SERIOUSLY question the motives of the DNC and others for supporting this candidate…
If what you read below infuriates you- remember-as a voter you have several options-NOT JUST TWO OPTIONS (MCCAIN OR OBAMA)-

Sen Clinton HAS NOT assigned her delegates to anyone. As of today-all her delegates still belong to her so…no…she is not out of the race yet. These links provide information (factual-well sourced where applicable) and the opinion pieces are ‘intelligent and rational”. Do not include trashy remarks or tons of adjectives-JUST FACTS as to why the person believes what he/she is telling you-ie what is their opinion based on.
ALSO-if you believe that we need a third party system-visit www.votenader.org . You can support the right to have third party candidates appear on ballots and if you choose-in November- you do not have to vote for the third party. PLEASE AT LEAST JUST GIVE THEM THE RIGHT TO APPEAR ON THE BALLOTS SO THAT FROM NOW UNTIL NOVEMBER THEY WILL BE ALLOWED TO PARTICIPATE IN PUBLIC DEBATES CONCERNING THIS CAMPAIGN. ALSO HELP THEM GET A FOUNDATION FOR FUTURE ELECTIONS. LOOK WHAT A TWO PARTY SYSTEM HAS DONE TO SEN CLINTON (& OTHER FORMER CANDIDATES)…AND TO OUR COUNTRY.
PLEASE EDUCATE YOUR FELLOW VOTERS.

What? You mean other politicians don't rely on the media placing them on a pedestal?
Fricken Obama. Nothing is good enough for him. Now, with the New Yorker, even our country's history of political cartoons aren't acceptable for him. That tradition only goes back to our very first president.
I'm with you two...PUMA's need to keep up the work! HRC is the only candidate who represents MY interests.

How old is too old to be president of the USA? 60, 70, 80, 90 and how many health issues make it to risky?

3 American men ex-military from Colombia have just been released from captivity and are talking about their experience along with a presidential candidate for that country. I believe their judgment regarding war and similar issues as being biased could be questioned today and in the future.

McCain has the same problem yet Americans want to put his finger on the NUKE button knowing, by his own admission, that he has PTSD and has been treated for it several times and is on medication for it. Even when the diagnosis of PTSD is made it is not thought to be curable a belief held in the face of widespread evidence. Drugs have a very limited role in the treatment of PTSD and are used for depression and anxiety. Psychological treatments such as Cognitive Behavior Therapy (CBT) have proven ineffective. Just one indicator of PTSD and there are others are chronic physical signs of “HYPERAROUSAL” that include sleep problems, trouble concentrating, irritability, anger, poor concentration, blackouts, difficulty remembering things, an increased tendency to being startled and hypervigilance to threat. This is something to consider in addition to his other medical conditions such as cancer in remission.

I think it's time for all the 18 million voters that supported Mrs. Clinton's campaign, to help her pay down her debt. Put your money where your mouth is. If everyone donated a mere $1, that would be 18 million dollars right there. If you support her, help to donate whatever you can to help her pay down her campaign debt.

Democratic Party leaders are starting to be wary of riding Obama's coattails. They see that he is trying to be all things to all people and is really nothing to anyone.

I will not be ridig the unity pony either by voting for this clown. Does the Democratic Party still have patriots with the courage to take a stand? It is not too late, Superdelegates. Vote your conscience and nominate Hillary in Denver!

If all the Hillary supporters are so hardcore, why does she have to go around begging for money from them? You are disgruntled, and it's timefor some people to get over their grudges.

Since Obama's positions change hourly it could be embarrasing to be too closely alligned with him. You would be giving a fine speech and someone in the audience would say; " oh, but haven't you heard, Obama said the opposite just an hour ago." Could be quite discouraging. Oh well, as Betty once said: " fasten your seat belts, it's going to be a bumpy ride."

Wait a minute, I thought all demokrats loved Obama now. Oh, they flirted with Hillary, but in the end, Obama (and Obama girl) "ruled the roost."

Pray to your new Overlord, Barrack Obama.
Told you so
