“Senator Clinton has made history in this campaign. She has made history not just because she is a woman who has done what no woman has done before, but because she is a leader who inspires millions of Americans with her strength, her courage, and her committment to the causes that brought us here tonight.”

-Senator Barack Obama

    Hillary Clinton canceled plans to attend an anti-Iran rally because Republican VP candidate Governor Sarah Palin would attend it.

    Why is Hillary Clinton more devoted to her party and not Americans? Why couldn’t she be bi-partisan and stand with both parties on this issue?

    Sarah Palin puts her country first, just like John McCain. Her own son is fighting in Iraq for the values and freedoms of all Americans.

    Country First!!! not party first.

    I don’t think I need to emphasize how out of place Governor Palin would have been at the anti-Iran rally planned by several Jewish groups. She can claim neither foreign policy experience, nor prior public support for Israel. A statement issued by the National Jewish Democratic Council even describes Palin as “totally out of step with Jewish public opinion.”

    Additionally, Palin’s attendance at the event alongside Senator Clinton would have been particularly awkward in the context of the current political campaign, as Palin is widely recognized to be attempting to woo disappointed Clinton supporters based on the one thing they have in common: they are both women.

    It is not Clinton’s cancellation that has cast a partisan light on the planned rally, but Palin’s decision to attend. So we can thank Hillary Clinton for averting a situation that could have disastrousy undermined the objective of the rally.

    You may be interested to note that the rally organizers have since reassessed their ill-conceived decision to invite Palin, instead recasting the rally “without American political personalities.”

    If we want Hillary Clinton to become President in 2012 Barack Hussein Obama needs to lose this election.

    If Obama wins and does well as President, then in 2012 people will just re-elect him and not vote for Hillary Clinton.

    If Obama does horrible as President, then people will not vote for Democrats and will just vote for Republicans.

    Thus, the McCain/Palin ticket has to win to ensure that Hillary Clinton becomes President in 2012.

    On top of that, Sarah Palin as Vice President would excite more confidence towards people in having Hillary Clinton as President in 2012.

    More and more prominent Hillary Clinton supporters are supporting McCain/Palin’08.

    No prominent Hillary Rodham Clinton supporter endorses John Sidney McCain III/Sarah Louise Heath Palin. Her supporters stand behind her ideas, her policies, and what she represents.

    How can one support Hillary Rodham Clinton yet not support her candidate? Does it make sense for a Hillary Rodham Clinton supporter to endure four years of her political opposite, for the chance he’ll disappoint the electorate enough to give her the chance to defeat his incumbency?

    Indeed, the only Hillary Rodham Clinton supporters you may be alluding to are certainly not prominent ones, because such a switch in allegiance requires unsavory rationalizations. Since their platforms share no similarity, such people can only be assumed to support John Sidney McCain III because his running mate, Sarah Louise Heath Palin is a woman. Alternatively, such people can only be assumed to oppose her political twin, Barack Hussein Obama because he claims African parentage.

    Or they submit to your simplistic pseudo-strategic reasoning, which makes me worry for the future of our country and question the effectiveness of our education system.

    Furthermore, I question your calculated use of Obama’s full name. Whereas my awkward use of full names was consistent for all aforementioned politicians, you chose to use a name rarely cited by any media source except in Islamophobic contexts.

    Your comment simultaneously reduces Barack Obama to a candidate with a Muslim-sounding name and Hillary Clinton supporters to blind followers who support her not for her platform but for her gender and care only to see a woman in the White House, nevermind who she is. It makes no valid arguments. It is propaganda.
