Contempt For Clinton Supporters and Clinton Voters

By Big Tent Democrat

Speaking for me only

Nothing demonstrates to me more how divisive and harmful the drive of some Obama supporters to end this race can be than this from Mike Lux (see also Tom Watson on a similar issue)

What those remaining undeclared folks are telling me in private, though, is that they hope the race will play itself out and Obama will emerge as the clear winner so that they don't have to piss the Clintons and their machine off. . . . I am encouraging my friends to come out of their political closet. If all the superdelegates and other influential friends that I have talked to who believe that the best path for the party is for Obama to win a clear victory would come out in is favor, this thing really would be over.

(Emphasis supplied.) Lux does not even make sense from one graf to the next. The remaining undeclared delegates told him something very sigificant and he is too obtuse to understand it -- they want "the race [to] play itself out and Obama [to] emerge as the clear winner." That means they want Obama to win it with VOTERS, not super delegates. Lux's contempt for Clinton VOTERS (over 13,000,000 of them so far) is exactly the attitude exhibited by the Obama blogs, Obama endorsers (see Leahy and Dodd), the Obama network (NBC) and the Obama campaign itself. Keep this up much longer, and both Obama and Clinton may soon be unelectable in November.
