Hillary Clinton Needs To Get Out Of The 2008 Presidental Race Now!

I am truly tired of Hillary Clinton now. She can't win. Even if by some miracle she gets the nomination, black folks are never going to forgive her and they won't vote for her. She can't win without us. Why doesn't she get that? And if she gets the nomination and doesn't win, destroying the black support of the Democratic party in the process, she is in turn destroying her own legacy. Black folk may not have a lot of power, but they do have long memories.

I want Hillary to step aside now, too. But, our perspective is alittle off because the 2008 race began in late 2006. Plus, the repubs had such a weak field this year that McCain got the nom early. If it were a "normal" election cycle, taking the nomination process to May or June is not unusual. If Obama was up in delegates and popular vote like McCain, they could technically start the general election now. But, shifting to general election mode doesn't usually happen until summer.

BUT, for the interest of the Democratic party, to break the stalemate, to stop the divisions, Hillary would look really good if she stepped down now for the sake of the Democratic party.

I'm black and I will vote for her. So would my mother (who is a current Obama support) and my Grandmother. I understand the frustration. But please also understandthat there are people out there who thoroughly support her and would like to see her win, that is why she's still fighting it out. There might not be the majority of blacks, but there are some. I personally do not feel comfortable with Obama, and would most likely not vote for him. Just as you get tired of Hillary, I get tired of hearing people trying to shove Obama down my throat. They haven't finished yet and win or lose, I guess she's going to fight it out.

Just offering another perspective.

But the Clintons have engaged in so much race-baiting and fear-mongering that they have poisoned the well. Carvel referring to Richardson as Judas because the man made a tough choice but not one they wanted. Telling voters their states don't count because they didn't choose her. Telling people McCain is a better choice if not her. All of the good she may have been able to do but for the huge plank in her eye. Claiming to be a victim while reveling in her privilege. Feminists who feel they need a viable female candidate have McKinney as an option but they're not supporting her. Some of those same women part of the [white] Feminist Industrial Complex could have supported Shirley Chisholm or Carole M. Braun...but they didn't. Does the 'great hope' always have to be 'white' be it a man or a woman? I know that it's one that is more familiar and people feel more comfortable with it. But is it better really? I've been reading stories and watching youtube featuring returning war veterans who are opposed to war. I could only stomach about 4 minutes of testimony at the atrocities enacting against innocent civilian populations. Blowing up water supplies knowing it would be the death of children, removing the males from their homes and taking them to be tortured, I could go on and on. I would have NEVER authorized that 'war'. That's probably why I'm not a politician. My moral code needs to stay intact and the level of compromise people who want to get and maintain power for themselves could very easily destroy that. Today's freedom fighter is tomorrow terrorist depending on who gets to set the narrative.

I am voting for Hillary. I think I should support her as a woman.Not every black person supports Obama. The media made him popular. His wife said something messed up about black women in October that made me upset. Just because I did not run and support him in the beginning does not make me wrong. Our ancestors died for our right to vote for whoever the hell we want to. Plus Obama will have alot of asses to kiss when he gets in. Whoever supported him, he will have to do what the ask of him. Who the hell is that????

Rainy, I am a Hillary supporter also and I too don't feel comfortable about Obama. Why should she give up. She is the most qualified person for the job. Neither Mccain or Obama have the same track record. I'm not going to vote for anyone because of the color of their skin. I don't agree with his issue and he is a little too liberal for me. He talks a good game, but who is going to pay for all these programs, the middle class?
