What, no cut and run from Hillary?

A recent poll shows that a majority of Democrats think Hillary Clinton should stay in the race. The candidate herself, despite insurmountable odds, has indicated she will stay in until the end and that she plans to win. Hillary and her supporters want her to stay even though it looks impossible to win and even though she is broke and lending her campaign money.

These are the same people who want us to cut and run from Iraq. They are the folks who tell us that we cannot win in Iraq and that it is costing a lot of money (it is). The successes in Iraq are certainly more evident than in the Clinton campaign but nonetheless, they want us to cut and run from the war.

Why is it that people who advocate cutting and running from a war we are having success in advocate for Hillary to stay the course even though she cannot win without her party screwing Barack Obama over?

If these people applied the same standard to Hillary’s campaign as they do to the war then she would have been gone long ago. Not that I want to see her leave but one would think these people could at least be consistent.

The painful truth is that if the Democrats had a winner take all primary, Hillary would have locked up the nomination long ago. However, the Democrats chose to play games with their system and now they are in a pickle. There will be blood at their convention and a lot of people will have hurt feelings.

Who could ask for anything more?

    The war in Iraq? The Democratic primary? You should stick to your puns, your recent history of comparisons really stinks.

    I don’t think you’ll have your fun with the Dems after all. Hillary isn’t stupid and it’s only idiots like Dick Morris that suggest she’s taking this so personal as to destroy Obama so she can run again in 4 years. I grow more certain every day that she will simply finish out the primary season and then say what’s done is done, support Obama and maybe even try to pick up the VP slot.

    I just realized something. You and Dick Morris should get a cabin in the woods together. It looks like there is nothing either of you will not do or say to bash a Clinton. Hmm…

    Adams last blog post..A Hillary Clinton Stalwart?

    Maybe you and both Clintons should get that cabin because there is nothing that you will not do or say to defend them.

    If all is lost (and it is for Hillary) then why do they want her to continue?

    The Clintons would never take anything personally. Are you so deft that you can’t see the lies and the bad things? That was a rhetorical question…

    Funny, you support Hillary who voted for a war you oppose. It is you who will do anything to get a Dem in office.

    As for Dick Morris, why should you be surprised? He said anything to get Bill elected when he worked for the Clintons. You were OK with that.

    One needs to ask what it is that he saw that made him go against them. Considering all the things he saw and went through (he knew how sleazy they were when he was working for them and Bill physically attacked him) it must have been really, really bad for him to turn.
