Billary wanted divisiveness and now she's got plenty of it:
PRINCETON, NJ -- A sizable proportion of Democrats would vote for John McCain next November if he is matched against the candidate they do not support for the Democratic nomination. This is particularly true for Hillary Clinton supporters, more than a quarter of whom currently say they would vote for McCain if Barack Obama is the Democratic nominee.This doesn't surprise me in the least. But unlike the Hillary shills that want to pin this on Rev. Jeremiah Wright, I say it's way more about Geraldine Ferraro. After all, it was Ferraro's racist comments about Barack Obama (the second time she'd made racist comments against a Black presidential candidate) that in my opinion brought to the surface the resentment of many white, elitist, liberal, female supporters of Hillary Clinton currently have towards the Black liberal Democratic base: "we've taken care of you for years and now you betray us like this?"
Again, it all goes back to the sense of entitlement within the Hillary camp, that it was "her turn" this year and how dare this Barack guy get in the way of Billary's return to the throne, much less how dare Black liberals switch their allegiance and loyalty to this relative newcomer. So while I feel that most white liberal males will stay loyal to the Democratic party regardless if Hillary or Obama wins the nomination, the fact that more and more Hillary supporters (aka rich, white, female, liberal, elitists) are willing to abandon their party if Senator Obama is the nominee not only shows their true colors, but can only help John McCain in the long run. And the McCain can mostly thank Geraldine Ferraro for that.
