quote:By constantly saying Obama is not ready to be President while McCain is, she is doing her best to ruin his chances against McCain if Obama ends up being the nominee. She says all this while at the same time saying she would pick Obama to be her Vice President. Obama has never said anything this damaging that could be used by the Republicans against Clinton in the fall. She is willing to destroy the Democratic Party's chances if she doesn't get to be the nominee. It's disgusting. If the Republicans end up winning in November, much of the blame will have to go to Hillary Clinton.

Thanks, Michael. I, too, have been really undecided and gone back and forth on who gets my vote. Just reading your post, I still think I'm not really going to know until I'm voting tomorrow, and just listen to what my instincts tell me.
Thought I'd share this post from Eric Leven's blog (one of our Rapture readers and one of New York's most inspiring young queer activists):

I'm ecstatic to be alive during a time when the first woman and black man run for president and make American history. Tomorrow I will join my fellow citizens and vote toward the future of this nation. I am a fan of Clinton and I am a fan of Obama and I think either would make a great President. So, who will get my vote?
* I have been alive for 26 years- 19 of those years have been lived with a Bush or Clinton in office.
* This nation is divided. Republicans vs. Democrats. Many who oppose Clinton seem to simply hate her. I don't know why this is, but if she were elected, that hatred would remain, further keeping us, as a nation, divided. You're right. You're wrong. We're tired.
* Clinton has White House experience. Obama does not. I'm okay with the idea of someone fresh taking office. I like the idea of out with the old, in with the new.
* Clinton knows what to do on day one. Obama has a vision.
I don't need Clinton's experience to pave the way for Obama to take office in four years. I'm ready for him and change and a new energy, now.

I used to think Condoleezza was a really cool robot.
(Sorry pretty, I know you like her)
She never seemed real to me.
But this one!
The Republicans have perfected it!
She is riviting.
They have taken Stepford wives into the 21st century.
