So if you really are an Obama supporter, please:
- Stop Clinton hate. If common ground is what we are after, there are little but common ground between the two liberal democrats.
- Stop calling for Clinton to quit. Obama said that Clinton has every right to continue her campaign.
- Stop playing the old politics. Did Clinton really want Obama assassinated like RFK? Are you kidding?
- Rein in your imagination. Did Clinton manufacture her tears in New Hampshire? Did she arrange to have people raise "Wash my shirt" signs? Did she intentionally lie about sniper fire in Bosnia? Obama would take her words and so should you.
It just came to light that Obama had to distance himself with yet another of his supporters -- the Rev. Michael Pfleger -- who mocked Clinton's as a racist. Obama was right to be disappointed. But the more telling fact is: If Obama cannot really influence his supporters, how is he gonna lead the nation?
