Hillary Backs Obama

I'll be the first person to admit I'm not into politics. When something interests me I'll research and get involved, but for the most part I really try to stay away from it. (ducking tomatoes thrown from crowd...)

The one thing that really drives me nuts though happened this weekend when Hillary decided she was going to lose and thus ended her presidential bid - and ENDORSED BARAK OBAMA! Am I the only person who thinks this is absolutely ridiculous. Come on... She hasn't had anything good to say about this guy for months and months, and some of what she said, IMHO, was particularly mean-spirited, yet now when she decides she's done with the race, she tells all her followed they should follow him. What the heck? I get it, I mean, obviously she wants a dem in the White House, and since he's (basically) the only one left all the little Hillacons should vote for her opponent, whom she hasn't been able to abide for the last year. Did he suddenly become a "good guy" in her sight? Heck no.

I know, I know, it's how it's done, it's "politically correct", but seriously I think if you drop out of a race maybe you should have have the choice to keep your big yapper shut because I'm sure I'm not the only one who thinks Hillary looks like a total fool endorsing Obama. And just in case you're wondering, I don't think Romney should have endorsed McCain either, although I don't think they reached the same level of mudslinging as Hill and Barak did. Still, if you're OPPONENTS for Pete's sake, how can you endorse the other person? Simple minded, I know, but it just irritates the crap out of me and I had to get it off my chest.

that is why it is called politics my dear sister.... what Hillary is doing makes total sense, she is working to unite the democratic party and to tell 18 million voters who voted for her that they should support Obama as well and not that asshole McCain.

Like her or not, she is a fighter and has a loyal following. She recieved more votes in the primaries than any other person in history. Pretty impressive if you ask me!

What I got a kick out of was that even while she was giving a speech endorsing him, she still managed to make it all about her!
