maybe not you, but on this very forum we've had people talking about how they won't vote for Hillary because she's a bitch.
the strongest anti Hillary venom is from the Obama people


just like the strongest anti-McCain stuff is from the GOP / conservatives you mentioned

just wait until the general.

then you'll see what real misogyny is waiting for Hillary.

they're just rubbing their hands -- and perhaps some are rubbing in that way, in some weird kind of mommy-spank-me fantasy -- and waiting for her to somehow make it to the general.

and then we'll hear what hate is all about.

The two Dem camps are often at each other's throats right now, period, and I don't see that ending until a clear winner in the delegates stakes emerges. It's stupid, because there's nothing to be gained at this point from squabbling about it...it's too late to decisively change most people's minds anyway.

I'd like to think Obama could evade a witch hunt in the general but I'm certainly not counting on it, I've seen too many election seasons come and go for that.

Obama has had a fairly easy primary season

the other candidates were/ are at a loss to go on the offense

when they do/ or did
they get jumped on all over by the democrats


the general election will be different
it will only be about the swing voters
and these people won't circle the wagons around Obama
like his supporters have during the primaries

It's a gamble either way, I agree.

W had a pretty easy primary season, too.

You may recall.

I don't use terms like hand out or leg up in political discussions


I will say they each have had their "people", followers beating down the opposition.

also the press seemed to favor W in 2000 like it is favoring Obama, now.

while i don't agree that the press has somehow been easier on Obama,

if you are going to win in the general,

isn't it good to have the media in your corner?

do you recall in 2000 how the press kept calling Gore stiff, and boring?

and W was the feel good guy?


Well,
it did get W close enough to steal the election in 2000

Your comparisons are ridiculous. Gore WAS pretty stiff in his campaign...he's a lot better at appearing comfortable in public NOW, but back then he WAS boring - but his policies were right.

As for GWB being the 'feel good guy' - please don't even try this. NO ONE ever called GWB charasmatic, NO ONE ever called GWB 'a movement', NO ONE ever accused him of being in the ranks of JFK and MLK in terms of oratory skill and ability to inspire. No one.

'I'd rather have a drink with GWB than Gore' is in a completey different universe from the things people are saying about Obama.

It's not even comprable and I'm surprised that you are saying such silly things.

Maybe right now, but overall it's from the GOP, before Obama even threw in his name Hillary was uniting the GOP. As I drive through East TX this weekend I noticted all the "anything but Hillary" signs, and these are definately not Obama fans, most of them still had Romney or Guiliani signs that they haven't removed yet.

The Libertarian candidate will loose.
I hope you're right.
