Since that time we have seen the PUMA movement take hold. Which for those living under a rock, stands for Party Unity My Ass. I am not going to get into a diatribe about them because in some ways I understand what they are doing and somewhat how they are feeling.
- Disappointed that Hillary will not be the President in 2009? Okay.
- Don't agree with some of his policies? Okay.
- Reviled at his campaign's tactics during the primary? Okay.
- Think Hillary would have been the better candidate? Okay.
- Dislike Obama? Okay.
But you know what? THE PRIMARY IS OVER.
And for those that are thinking of voting for McCain? Stop and think what you are doing -you are throwing Hillary under the bus. Everything she stands for has very little to do with the Republican party ideals and voting for them would be a slap in her face. Yes - a slap.
As my good pal Kysen wrote:
But, opting not to vote?
Voting only downticket?
Writing in Hillary?
Seems a bit like holding one's breath to get one's way....but, at least it is not sullying Hillary's name.
So for the love of god - if you cannot vote for the Democratic nominee - people may not like your decision but will understand it. But DO NOT betray Hillary and everything she stands for by voting for McCain.
