  • | Reply | Permalink nonsense. clinton doesn't just go from being one of the two most important dems in the country to the bottom of the bucket just because obama is now the presumptive and uncontested nominee. pretending that she doesn't have any power or influence in the party doesn't make it so. this sort of arrogance among obama supporters reminds me of bush's claim to have received a mandate after squeaking by in one of the closest elections ever. it would be wise to continue keeping in mind that nearly half of dem primary voters supported clinton. obama won, but what clinton does between now and november can certainly have an impact on a lot of dem voters. (particularly as obama tacks back to the right after hornswoggling so many progressives.)
