Hillary Democrats: Change Parties, Please

"2016: By that time, after eight years of an Obama presidency, America will be lucky if it's still a country."

I sent the material below to Lyn, a wonderful person in the NoBama Movement who was trying to come up with creative ways to influence the "SuperDelegates" (perhaps the most timid and frightened individuals on the planet). The SDs remind me of the character in the Flannery O'Connor short story ("A Good Man is Hard to Find") of whom it was said, "She would have been a good woman -- if someone had a gun to her head 24 hours a day."

Lyn, it was a very good idea (buying Corsi's book and giving to SDs), but I think we're stymied. I want you to know -- and any other people who get this note -- that I care a great deal about everyone in the NoBama Movement. I also want you to know that, like you, conscience and country matter to me about one thousand times more than Party -- any political party. That said . . .

I don't think there is any chance in the world (barring something totally unforeseen) that Barack Obama will not be the nominee of the Democratic Party. I do believe, as an observer, that the Party is broken, and I wonder if it will be fixed anytime soon. I don't say those things to hurt people's feelings; I say them because they're obvious.

I don't blame anyone who follows his or her heart and head, because I do so myself.

Today, a friend sent me an article (and a video) critical of John Kerry, who is a hero to some people (a diminishing number). Kerry, Ted Kennedy, and Gov. Patrick all endorsed Obama even though their state, Massashusetts, went for Hillary by a huge margin. My own Democratic congressman, Jason Altmire, supports Obama although his district went two-to-one for Hillary. My own county voted for Hillary 28,000 to 12,000.

What I ask my friends in the Democratic Party is this: what are YOU going to do about these people (and include Howard Dean, Donna Brazille, and Nancy Pelosi, along with many other colleagues of HRC who turned their backs on ther)? If the answer is nothing, as I fear it may be from too many people, then they have the Party they deserve.

In 2016, the Party will perhaps nominate a Howard Dean-Donna Brazile ticket, and Democrats will be told to take-it-or-leave it. Some Democrats will be wandering around thinking, "Now, should I vote for Dean-Brazile, or should I consider the (shudder, shudder) Republican candidate?"

By that time, America, after eight years of Barack Obama, will be lucky if it's still a country.

In my view, the Party of FDR, Harry S Turman, and JFK has ceased to exist. People need to begin to look elsewhere for their political allegiances. To those who consider Barack H. Obama a suitable candidate for POTUS, they have my wishes for a speedy recovery.

As author O'Connor said, "a good man is hard to find." And Barack Obama isn't that man.
