It’s Snowing

It was dumping out this morning.  Fred, Josh and Jess went in to the back country while Emily and I contemplate our day. It is still questionable what we will do.

CNN is on mute while I watched Hilary make a speech today in North Carolina.  I admit, I voted for Hillary in the primary but at this point, I’ve had enough.  Enough of the every day polls that say Hillary supporters will vote for McCain.  Spare me.  I want to know what is truly happening in the back rooms at the DNC.  Is Schumer or Dean (where is he?) pressing for unity at this point?  How many months are the American people going to have to watch this contest which I believe is over.  The country has been through enough turmoil over the past 7 years.  Where we stand today is proof.  Bush continues to talk about how fantastic he is and how everything is just A-ok.  We can’t afford the war we are in, we are in debt up to our eyeballs, the rest of the world is not that happy with us, the dollar sucks, we are falling into a recession…need I go on?

Now is the time for unity within the Democratic party.  I hate to tell Hillary but she isn’t going to win.  Obama is going to be the Democratic candidate and hopefully be the next President of the United States.  Please don’t let this go until the convention.  We need unity now not only for the party but for the people of this country.  The endless backstabbing (coming mostly from the Clinton party) does not look good for anyone and it looks even worse for Bill’s legacy, at least in the short term. 

Hillary and Obama need to stand on a stage together and acknowledge the support of each other’s candidacy’s.  Take off the rose colored glasses and realize who is the front runner and move on.  The numbers point directly to Obama and the chances of Hillary winning now are slim to none.  I do not believe the slim part is worth the destruction that is being left in its path.  The newspapers can’t even afford to keep reporters on the daily trail anymore.  Let’s unite and move on.  Make it grand and glorious and do it together on one stage.  Hillary must get out there, accept her loss, acknowledge Obama and hit the trail making sure he is the next President of the US.  Either Obama should pick Hill as his VP or pick someone who has a true understanding of global economics to get this country back in gear, such as Mike Bloomberg.  But for everyones sake, lets move on.

I, for one, have had enough.
