According to the UK Telegragh, Bill Clinton is so bitter about Barack Obama's victory over his wife Hillary that he has told friends the Democratic nominee will have to beg for his wholehearted support. And, Bill is telling people he doesn't think Obama will or can win in November.
No doubt Bill and Hillary are hoping Obama loses so she can run again in 2012. Bill needs Hillary to help repair the damage he did to the Democratic party, gays, the poor and the working class, all of which he sold out to the corporate rich for his own political power.
The Clintonistas are now protesting that "Obama is No Liberal", and point out his recent moves to the political "center", yet they support Billary who have been part of the DLC Corporate Centrists all along! Do they really think Hillary would have criticized the Supreme Court decision on guns in D.C.? Would she have agreed with the Supreme Court that capital punishment, which she supports, would be "cruel and unusual" punishment for CHILD RAPISTS? Are the Clintonistas really that stupid and naive??
The Clintonites claim that Hillary Clinton is a "progressive" candidate even though she supported, VOTED FOR, the resolution to authorize Bush to invade Iraq? The think Obama is NOT liberal since he supports the death penalty and "gun rights", but Hillary IS liberal even though she takes the indentical politically expedient positions?
Obama is NOT a radical, democratic socialist like me, nor is he nearly as progressive as I wish he were. But he is at least, if not MORE, liberal than Hillary Clinton on most issues. I and other progressives are supporting Obama not because he is a perfect candidate, but because he offers the best "hope" for changing the direction of this country. He is no messiah. We, progressives, will have to work hard to show him the way.
But enough of the HYPOCRISY of the Clintonistas, some of which are threatening to vote for JOHN MCCAIN, now is he "liberal" or "progressive" or are you womyn just blowing smoke up our asses??
