Why I hate this primary campaign

Just heard that Hilary Clinton says she wouldn't have stayed in Rev. Wright's church after he said such incendinary things. Well, I guess that balances with the number of people who declared they would never stay with a husband that betrayed them in the way Bill did her. Who the f*ck cares? And who has the right to judge the reasons people stay with those who are less than perfect? If I remember correctly, the bible says, judge not lest ye be judged.

Can we just stop the crap now?

Well, this combined with:

- having the Clinton campaign distribute American Spectator hit pieces, and
- Hillary Clinton sitting down with Richard Mellon Scaife,

... well, I guess we can see that she's kinda willing to do anything to improve that 10% chance her own advisors says she has to catch Obama, even if it means tearing down the likely general election candidate for the Democratic Party AND sucking up to the people who vilified her and her husband.

Man, this is sad. I really wished that the "Clintons will do ANYTHING" line was bunk. It's not too surprising, I guess, because it's pretty clear Hillary's in a bunker mentality, but incredibly sad to see it isn't.

Playing the Reverend Wright card before the head of the VRWC is something I never thought I'd see. That's the place she should depart because her prayers won't be answered there either.

Watching from my side of the Pacific in Asia, it seems so strange to many here why its all getting so personal. I host a radio show in Manila and a lot of my listeners reactions say - Why not just let them all run and have a real popular vote?

It seems most people overseas can't understand why there's still a electoral college system or super delegates or things like primaries.

To them in manila and elsewhere in Asia - its like why not go out and vote on one day and have over and done with in one gulp and let the peoples vote speak vox populi- vox dei

Mike, the electoral college is the only one of those things that's directly related to the actual election, and we're working on that. The primary process may be weird, but I think it's a lot more democratic than the way most parties choose their candidates in other countries. I could be wrong, though. How do the parties in the Philippines select their candidates?

That line from the Bible doesn't mean "don't pass judgement, or some day judgement will be passed on you." It means that you should live your life the way you say others should. By that measure, Hillary Clinton seems to be doing better than Barack Obama.

Sometimes leaders have to do unpleasant things, like talk to the opposition. They don't just rail against them in a friendly crowd. If there's one thing the Clintons have done over the years, it's that. I'm not sure I could have in their place, but then I'm not asking to be leader of country, either. That's how you bring people together.

Talking to people isn't capitulating to them. I doubt that's something that Jeremiah Wright understands.

That Clinton wouldn't have been a member of that church doesn't surprise me one bit.

When you marry to take vow with your God and the church is very different from just listening to a service and accepting it or rejecting it.

Hillary married Bill only to find an extrodinary hardship towards a relationship. But vowed for better or worse. Or would it be easier if Bill was gay ? I don't think so!! So move forward through life keeping your vow or give up and take an easy way out avoid public opinion to rule your life. Many can see Hillary or any women in this situation as very determined and very honorable to move forward with forgiving an admirable quality of Gods grace.
