An extremely tepid Obama voter I am, and extremely tepid I remain:
A Thursday afternoon meeting between Sen. Barack Obama, D-Ill., and other members of the Congressional Black Caucus grew tense and emotional for a moment -- perhaps illustrating that weeks after Sen. Hillary Clinton, D-N.Y., suspended her presidential campaign, some nerves [well, you know how women are] remain frayed.
Sources at the meeting said that Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee, D-Texas, a Clinton supporter, expressed the desire that Obama and his campaign would reach out the millions of women still aggrieved [well, you know women get bitter] about what happened in the campaign and still disappointed [emotional, and all] that Clinton lost.
Obama agreed that a lot of work needs to be done to heal the Democratic Party, and that he hoped the Clinton supporters in the room would help as much as possible.
According to Rep. Yvette Clarke, D-N.Y., Obama then said, "However, I need to make a decision in the next few months as to how I manage that since I'm running against John McCain, which takes a lot of time."
And a man has his priorities.....
"If women take a moment to realize that on every issue important to women..."
Translation: You've got no place to go.
".... John McCain is not in their corner, that would help them get over it."
Constructive suggestion, here:
Can't Obama hire a coach, or something?
He's got more money than God, right, so what's the problem?
And sheesh. Fat Tony's not good company to be in....
