    Both Bill and Hillary are showing their good Democratic credentials as they are campaigning for Obama as we head into the final three weeks. Former Hillary supporters are following along as well...a Newsweek Poll of a couple days ago finds that while as many as a fifth of whom had at one point told pollsters they'd support McCain, now back Obama 88% to 7%.

    Democrats campaigning for democrats

    Why is this big news?

    The elusion of unity is newsworthy, someone better tell PUMA and the thousands of other Hillary supporters who will not vote for your messiah that they are apparently doing it like it or not.

    And why won’t you reply to my question on the other thread you started?

    I just looked, I can't find the question you are referring to...

    Those "thousands" of PUMA people have been reduced to an insignificant few. The Newsweek poll's number of a paltry 7% is noteworthy because you're going to get that many crossing party lines in every election. Face it, the disgruntled Hillary supporters made a lot of noise, got some inflated media coverage, but as many predicted all but that insignificant few have come back into the fold.

If there is another option or if I'm incorrect please don't hesitate to let me know.

    Popeye you ignored my questions. Please can you reply to them?


    First
    Do you have to have a new thread for everything?

    Second
    Do you blame Palin for the guy bringing the monkey?

    third
    how on earth do you connect the FACT that him knowing a domestic terrorist has anything to do with the man bringing a monkey to the rally?

    fourth

    If it is racist to make a person into a monkey then liberal scum has been racist against bush for 8 years. Here is a link of more bush=monkey pictures than I can post

    No

    McCain/Palin are currently running a campaign steeped in hate, as the rhetoric has heated up so have the incidents... “traitor,” “terrorist,” “kill him!” have all been shouted over the past few days at rallies....now we have the overt racism. So yes, McCain and Palin without a doubt have to share in the blame for this stuff ...you reap what you sow.


    Sorry if I gave that impression, it's not connected..the attacks on Obama about Bill Ayers are only the latest in the McCain/Palin kitchen sink strategy as they become more and more desperate. Frankly, the man with the monkey is a racist, he could care less about Bill Ayers or anything else...except that Obama is the wrong color.



    Not relevant, as Bush is white. You know as well as I that the monkey is a racist symbol, has been for decades...the man who brought the stuffed monkey obviously did.

    Well I can tell you I just watched Bill & Hillary hit it out of the Park for Senator Obama & Senator Biden in Scranton Pennsylvania!!! AND WHAT A GREAT JOB!!!

    Hillary: We needed a Democrat in the White House to clean up the economic mess left after the first Bush and we need a Democrat in the White House now to clean up the economic mess left by this Bush!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! BAM!!!!!!!!!!!!

    President Clinton was immediately off to Virginia and Hillary is coming straight here to Ohio. Things could not come together any better if we tried!:)

    Bill Clinton said in the Letterman show about 2 weeks ago. He said that they're to be visiting one of Hillary's nephew who was being baptized in Scranton, PA. At the same time Biden had asked them to campaing with him,..... No biggy...

    Did that Flip flopper ever help Hillary to pay off her 30 Million debt?
