Big Tent Democrat speaks for me:
Our friend Markos approvingly quotes this offensive comment:
It’s bizarre, but I don’t really consider [Hillary Clinton] a Dem any more.
Wow.. and double wow. Astounding.
BTD goes on:
It is bizarre that any Dem who wants to win in November with a unified Party would quote that approvingly. For the record, would “not a Dem” say this?
Obviously, we are still contesting to determine who will be the nominee. But once that is resolved, I think it is absolutely imperative that our entire party close ranks. That we become unified. I will do everything to make sure that the people who supported me support our nominee. I will go anywhere in the country to make the case. And I know that Barack feels the same way because both of us have spent 15 months traveling our country. I have seen the damage of the Bush years. I’ve seen the extraordinary pain that people have suffered from because of the failed policies. You know, those who have held my hands who’ve lost sons or daughters in Iraq. And those who have lost sons or daughters because they didn’t have health insurance. And so, regardless of the differences there may be between us, and there are differences, they pale in comparison to the differences between us and Senator McCain. So, we will certainly do whatever is necessary to make sure that a Democrat is in the White House next January.
(Emphasis supplied.) I wonder who the real Dems are. The ones who say they will unify the Party or the ones intent on destroying Hillary Clinton. Some people need to take a real hard look in the mirror. I do not think that the Some people are Hillary Clinton or Barack Obama. Get a grip, “Creative Class.”
Oh and then there’s this update from BTD:
I don’t think the Democrats have a monopoly on good ideas. I think that there are a lot of thoughtful Republicans out there. The problem is, we’ve been locked in a divided politics for so long that we’ve stopped listening to each other. And I think that this president, in particular, has fed those divisions. That’s something that we’ve tried to end in this campaign. And I think we’re being successful.
Three guesses on who made that statement in the debate last night. It wasn’t Hillary.
Who died and left Markos and the pro-Obama croud in the blogosphere to determine who is or isn’t a Democrat? I support Hillary Clinton in this election. Unlike Markos, who was once a registered Republican, I’m a life long (registered) Democrat — a died in the wool Massachusetts liberal. I’ve never, I repeat never, crossed party lines to vote for any Republican and I’ve never been associated with any other political party — but Markos and the pro-Obama croud want to start judging who is a Democrat? My response — Get over yourself!
