Holy smokes! At this Hillary Clinton forum, called… HillaryClintonForum.net, the frustrated Hillary supporters are thrilled – almost as joyous as the glee coming from my readers. Comments include:
HOPE ITS PALIN, I WOULD VOTE TWICE JUST TO STICK IT TO OBAMA
Leave it to the GOP to pick a woman for the ticket. Obama snubbed the most viable and experienced woman who received 18 million votes, for another MALE. I have a feeling, somewhere somehow, Hillary is snickering!
If this is true, this moves me from staying at home to voting McCain.
They may not be a representative sample of Hillary’s 18 million supporters, but obviously, a certain number of those folks are elated to see a woman on a major party ticket, and are talking about donating and volunteering for the McCain-Palin ticket.
I get the feeling that this was expected, as one of my McCain guys just told me, “I think Obama will find that she’s more than just a ‘sweetie.’”
And now, about a week later… the Biden pick looks pretty crappy, huh? Is Obama sure he doesn’t want Hillary on the ticket?
UPDATE: A reader notes, “The Democratic National Convention was a woman-palooza. Hillary’s speech celebrated women’s progress. Michelle’s speech celebrated Hillary shattering the glass ceiling. Talk talk talk. Guess which party has a woman on the ticket.”
