I’ve diligently read the posts here at the Mighty Corrente Building regarding Senators Clinton and Obama over the last months. And, until now, I’ve kept my trap shut. Please allow me to open it once again and say, “Enough!”
My preferred Democratic candidates: Kucinich, Richardson, Biden and Edwards, dropped out of the race long ago. Between Clinton and Obama, I can’t say that I have a definitive preference.
What mystifies me is that the many Progressives here that once touted the virtues of John Edwards have radically swung to the center to support Senator Clinton.
Is it that someone bet on the wrong horse (pony)?
So the solution, it seems, has become – “I just won’t vote.” “I’m withdrawing my registration as a Democrat.” Go ahead. Hold your breath and stomp your feet because you aren’t getting everything you want in a candidate.
No matter how the nomination goes – just about half of the Democratic Party is going to be pissed off (thank you David Axelrod, Howard Wolfson, Mark Penn – Karl Rove must be so proud). And if only half of them decide to protest by not voting, please allow me to introduce President John McCain.
Yes, your protests will be heard.
And it will sound like a tree in the woods falling…
On the bright side, we’ll all have plenty to bitch (blog) about for another four years.
