The primary race between Obama and Clinton has got to be the most astounding and embarrassing political discourse ever. I have never seen such flagrant race and gender baiting and muckraking. Every day presents a new revelation accusing the other of questionable past associations and insinuations of character flaws and you name it. I admit that it's humorous and enormously entertaining.
Even though I would never vote for either of the Democratic candidates as they are totally unqualified for the most important office at the most critical time, I can't help feeling sympathetic towards all those many voters earnestly wishing for change. My empathy extends to all those who enthusiastically gave their support and vigorously campaigned for one of these candidates. How bitterly disappointed they must feel as day in and day out this primary starts to imitate a TV sitcom. At this stage, we can only assume that both candidates have such utter contempt and built up hatred for each other's camps that they are each willing to drag their party down with them should they fail to get the nod.
Can anyone forgive the obvious and shameful arrogance being displayed by both candidates? McCain's lukewarm conservative supporters won't even have to vote as Democrats and liberal Independents will wind up voting for anyone but Barrack or Hill.
Hey, maybe even a late independent entry might stand a chance.
