I am a Hillary Supporter, and there is no way either me or my family would vote for Obama. We will vote for McCain, if Obama is the Democrats’ nominee.p>We are angry and we find it completely unacceptable the way Obama, his stooges, the Liberal Media and the DNC has treated her. br> — Romila Thakar /p>
Having lost the fight to get Florida and Michigan’s delegates seated in toto, Hillary must realize that she cannot win the Democratic nomination in 2008 unless she manages to convince a lot of delegates to switch votes, which will not happen unless Obama or one of his supporters produces a truly spectacular gaffe, one that even the media can’t ignore. While this might happen, it’s not likely. Hillary has to look past 2008 and position herself for 2012. In order to do this, several things must happen: Obama must lose the general election, as an incumbent Obama will be even harder to defeat four years from now, at least in the primaries. Also, if Obama is vulnerable to a primary challenge, it will be because he has failed on the scale that Jimmy Carter did previously. Hillary knows that this will damage the Democratic Party’s chances to hold the White House more than anything that she could do. A successful Obama presidency would force her to wait until 2016, and that’s just too long to stay married to Bill. She can’t take the vice-presidential slot for the same reason. If Obama wins in 2008, he will run for reelection in 2012, and she still has to put off her run until 2016. Again, that’s not her idea of a good time.p>I believe that Hillary will take her fight to the convention, make the case that she is the only Democrat who can beat McCain, then gracefully (in public) accept the verdict of the party as Obama is nominated, but in private, she will work to ensure that he does not win the general election. Barack Obama cannot win without New York, and she will not let him have it. Oh, she’ll make a few speeches, attend a few rallies, and make all of the right gestures, but watch how little the Democratic Party machine in NY does to get the votes out on election day. Her supporters in Emily’s List and NOW will sit on their hands when Obama needs help, and may even turn out, very quietly, for McCain. An Obama loss in the general election would vindicate Hillary, who will spend the next four years blaming the far left wing of her party for the loss of a sure thing and triangulating to the center in order to position herself for another run against a Republican incumbent. br> —

The debacle of this president’s administration is both a cause and a symptom of the decline of American values. Unless Congress impeaches him, that decline will go on unchecked. An eminent jurist surveys the damage and assesses the chances for the recovery of our culture.
It won’t take long for conservatives to scratch this presidential wannabe off their 2008 scorecard.
The American Christmas, like the songs that celebrate it, makes room for everybody under the rainbow. Is that why so many people seem to be hostile to it?
