Just sent this to the Clinton campaign

I am a loyal Democrat and have sworn that after this last 8 year disaster, I would never vote for a Republican again. John McCain is just more of the same. Until a few days ago, I was just happy with both Democratic candidates and so proud of the history unfolding before us.

But Senator Clinton, if you continue this "scorched earth" campaign against Senator Obama and actually win the nomination, I will stay home. I cannot support this Rovian politics that you seem to have embraced. What ever happened to "I am proud to be up here with Senator Obama?" What happened to that Senator who was running a reasoned and passionate campaign? Now you are playing the race card and playing coy with the Muslim whisper campaign? And suggesting that Senator McCain would be a better President than Obama?

Keith Olbermann is right, Senator, you need to reclaim the reins to your campaign. Unless this is exactly what you want. I can't count how many times I have defended you and your husband to Republican friends. That is at an end as well.

You got cojones, my friend.

She's gonna kick your ass for that, Streak. No, actually, she'll probably have someone else do it, then refuse to denounce and refject those comments, then smile and send you a coupon for the pillow you are going to buy for Obama.

Well said. There was a time that I could have voted for Hillary and it has passed.

If Hillary wins the nomination, I will still vote for her over McCain, but I will have to (1) rationalize that I'm actually voting for her cabinet and "spiritual advisers" (what the hell does that mean anyway?) over his, and (2) have at least three drinks first.

When push comes to shove, I probably will have to cast a vote, but her actions have made that an act I would do--like leighton, with a few belts.

Streak- Love the letter. May I plagiarize? Keep in mind, Mr. Nader may be on the ballot as an alternative:-).

Just vote for Nader. Hillary would probably still win, but at least you'd still have your soul intact. Even if McCain does win by some miracle, I imagine that the Democrats are going to pick up enough seats in Congress that he'd be a lame duck on day one.

I think I'm too selfish not to vote for Hillary if she gets the nomination. Her Secretaries of State and Homeland Security would make my work life easier than McCain's would. Hers might actually start clearing up some of this mess in immigration policies that Bush's team has partly exacerbated, but mostly created.
