The critical factor in determining the election is if the "Hillary Supporters now for McCain" keep on growing, as they have been. Then, Obama cannot win the election. McCain'’s use of the "Hillary commercials" and the strong presence of "defrocked" Wisconsin Hillary Delegate Debra Bartoshevich in McCain’s campaign are major positives.
Note: if you go to the Clintons4McCain Blog Talk Radio program (archived) two Saturdays ago, you'll hear an interview with Debra Bartoshevich and Bev Perlson (founder of TheBand of Mothers. I urge you to listen to these two strong women -- American patriots -- discuss why they're strongly "NoBama." http://www.blogtalkradio.com/clintons4mccain
"I have a lifetime of experience. Sen. McCain has a lifetime of experience. Barack Obama has a speech he gave in 2002." I can't imagine that HRC really wants us to ignore everything that was said and done over the last 18 months.
"The Obama played the race card . . . on me." (Bill Clinton)
"Every day since Joe Biden was selected John McCain has picked up a little ground." (Scott RaSmussen, pollster)
"8.8 million more women than men voted in the 2004 election." (FOX News)
McCain's chances in the General Election: It is winnable if we keep reaching out to as many people as possible -- friends, family, political allies, and people now "on-the-fence." I'm tired. We're all tired. We can rest up starting November .
"If Hillary Clinton releases those delegates before the end of the convention, I will consider that as fraud! We know he can not get the nomination without that [release of Hillary delegates] and there was a hidden agenda from the start to just fleece Americans out of their money. I am demanding a full refund for every cent I contributed! I have sent her a letter to that effect. If she announces [her withdrawal] or in anyway releases her delegates, I expect a full refund! I am asking the same of Joe Biden also seeing how he lied to me about Obama. FLAT OUT LIED!
The following e-mail was written by Charles, another staunch Hillary backer. Like so many Hillary backers, he's have a hard time accepting what he sees and hears.
We know you [Hillary] were threatened, but don’t sell us down the river . We worked hard for one year with a vast network of hundreds of thousands of supporters of yours (and satellite groups). We gave money, time, and effort 24/7. Please don’t do what you are about to do [ask your supporters to back Obama].
The second you encourage your supporters to back a person like Obama (the most dishonest, corrupt person in politics)...our group will go through with our plans of working even harder to elect McCain....the Party will not be united. We ask you one more time...PLEASE HILLARY...blind-side the corrupt people who treated you like dirt and either tell your people to vote for McCain or simply walk on and off the stage without saying a word.
Obama will never win, I promise. Please realize that to give your delegates to Obama goes against everything you promised us in the Primaries. Don’t add insult to injury.
Now Obama gives Fla. and Mich. the full vote [at the Convention], knowing it doesn't mean anything since you're going to turn around and give them to him. Surely the people are not that stupid in both states to buy this "generosity" from Obama, a pathological liar.
