Bite me, Hillary...
I haven't done alot of political posts lately.

Angela and I have been following events with great interest, as we always do.  We had an Obama sign in our yard til after the Oregon primary.  But with SO MUCH being said, for SO LONG, I just didn't really have much to add.

However, at this point, I really must jump on the bandwagon, and throw in my two cents worth (and any other cliches I find laying around).

The winner of the Democratic primary has been inevitable for several months now.  Hillary's had a great deal of time to come to terms with it, and any number of occasions where she could have bowed out gracefully, and lent Obama her support.

But she didn't, and while I didn't like it, I bit my tongue.  Even incredibly narrow odds sometimes come through, and if she wanted to slug it out to the end, it was her right to do so, however bad it was for the Democrats and the country at large.

Last night, however, everything changed -- and for Hillary not to have IMMEDIATELY conceded the race and congratulated the nominee is simply intolerable.

*NOW*, there's no more doubt.  *NOW*, there's no more quibbling.  *NOW*, Hillary has earned every single name that she's ever been called, and then some.

It's not your decision anymore, Hillary.  YOU LOST.  There's nothing left to decide.  And by not coming clean and admitting that last night, you threw away any claim you may have had on our respect, or our sympathy.

Last night was Obama's night.  As of last night, it's Obama vs McCain for the presidency of the United States.  And Hillary was too small, too full of herself, to pick a side in that contest.

Nothing she says or does tonight, or later, will change the fact that, when the time finally came and the spotlight was on her, she could not bring herself to lose gracefully.

And THAT says more about her than the entire rest of the Primary process...

I felt pretty much the same way. I took the time to listen to her speech and could not believe it when she did not concede. I would've supported her as VP, but now it's clear that she has too much ego to serve in that role.
