I haven’t written anything about the elections, but I will say what I want in a candidate is a person that realizes they are not the queen or king just because we vote for them. They must continue to listen to the people while they’re in office. Our opinions are more important than theirs. Without that basic concept in place we are not truly a government by the people and for the people.
That being said why is it that a handful of people are constantly being told by Clinton that they should vote against the will of the people? If the majority of Democrats have voted for Obama then he should get the nod. What Hillary is trying to do now is exactly what Bush has done – take the office without the popular vote (of course Bush massaged a few numbers in Florida too – strangely Florida still has issues with voting). If Hillary Clinton believes in the people then she’ll follow their orders. If not then why would anyone want her in office anyway? This is apparently now about her ego and not about this country. There’s no doubt she felt she had this on lock. Personally I’ll not vote for anyone that refuses to listen to what the people want. And they call Obama elitist?
Do you want another president that doesn’t listen to us?
But Clinton rules have a different set of standards, just like Bush did. They bring the heavy artillery representing the entrenched moneyed interests of the Republicrat status quo in D.C. to redefine democracy. It’s no longer who wins the election; it’s who bullies their way into mugging the process through threatened lawsuits, flip-flopping like a dying fish about DNC rules that the Clinton campaign originally agreed to, bullying superdelegates, and denying that the will of the people counts for anything.
In order to woo the superdelagates Clinton claims that whites will not vote for Obama. Well Hillary it doesn’t matter if white will vote for Obama (though this one will) – what matters is who the Democrat voters want to represent them and currently you’re not it.
Clinton Touts White Support – New York Times

As if the divisions between race and gender in the Democratic Party hadn’t been further exposed through Tuesday night’s exit polls — and by a very heated exchange on CNN between Donna Brazile and Paul Begala — Senator Hillary Rodham Clinton’s interview with USA Today on Wednesday is further mining those tense depths.
“I have a much broader base to build a winning coalition on,” she said in the interview, citing an article by The Associated Press.
It “found how Senator Obama’s support among working, hard-working Americans, white Americans, is weakening again, and how whites in both states who had not completed college were supporting me.”
“There’s a pattern emerging here,” she said.
