Hillary Clinton: In It to Win It

CNN just declared Hillary Clinton the winner of the Pennsylvania primary.

Now that the Democrats' candidates have been reduced to prize fighters, let's throw our support behind the candidate that had been counted out again, and again, and again.

We don't know the margin of victory yet, but a win is a win. And speaking of margins, W didn't win by a landslide in 2000 or 2004. So let's give Hillary her props.

Team Obama has a lot of money to burn on Indiana, but if he truly cares about change, if his supporters really want to win in November, then we have to reclaim our party from the trenches of entertainment television and mount our campaign against the Republicans.

We already know what the Republicans are going to say about Hillary: she's a socialist, she's a liar, she's pro-choice, bla bla bla. Think about how much we still don't know about Obama and when the right time would be, for the Republicans, to drop a bombshell.

Everyone LOVES to bash Hillary, but homegirl still comes out on top. So the Dems shouldn't worry about her electability, the Republicans should.

I was a supporter of Hillary Clinton early in this primary season, but no more. Hillary, growing my desperate and deranged by the minute, continues to evoke the race card, while Obama remains a class act and focused on issues that will truly affect his nation. Instead, Hillary Clinton has resorted by evoking fear in white people (did anyone say Farrakhan?), and using her cronies (i.e., Geraldine Ferraro), to say disgraceful things about her competitor. I guarantee you that Ferraro's remarks that "Obama wouldn't be getting so much attention if he weren't black" were carefully orchestrated to insert this disgusting sentiment that Hillary Clinton knows she can't say hearself.

I'd rather choose a leader with a hopeful vision. Instead, Hillary Clinton is taking a page from the George Bush school of leadership, which is to use fear to scare people into voting for her.
