Obama & Clinton Supporters Must Approach Race With A Fonz Like Cool

While I’m frustrated Senator Hillary Clinton is staying in the Democratic nomination race, please allow me to restate my view that I will support the final nominee of the party.   

My own view is that if Senator Clinton could win, or if she were a message candidate like a Jesse Jackson or a Pat Buchanan in recent nomination fights, then she would have a reason to keep going.

It feels that she is staying in for her own good and not for the good of the party or the nation.

Still, Mrs. Clinton has the right to continue and we have to respect this fact.

Polls, to the extent they are worth anything, continue to show Senator Barack Obama running slightly ahead of John McCain. Mrs. Clinton runs basically even with Mr. McCain.

I’m playing this all cool. Very cool like the Fonz. There is plenty of time before November.  

The bottom line is winning in November.

We have to always keep in mind that either Mr. Obama or Mrs. Clinton would be much better than Mr. McCain.

We will we win if we stay cool like the Fonz.

Here is the Obama for President webpage.

  1. After Desert storm and Kosovo, the USA could be like The Fonz and other countries would think at least twice before messing with us.

    After the Neocon motivated, ill conceived, ill advised and ill-executed Iraq fiasco, we could no longer be like The Fonz.

    Obama is more like The Fonz than Hillary or McNasty.

  2. Well that’s good–We’ll have our most Fonz-like cool person in the White House. But Mrs. Clinton is still much better than Mr. McCain.

    Thanks for the comment.

  3. McCain is potentially even worse than GW Bush. The more I have googled details about his tempr and war record, the scarier he looks.

    GW Bush was a front and he knew it. McCain takes himself seriously.

  4. I agree with this. Mr. McCain seems to be in love with violence and war.

  5. Hallelujah!
    The biggest threat to the democrats not taking the white house is the split of the dem party. The scariest thing I have heard since Bush got re-elected has been the threats from voters that if their desired dem candidate does not win they will vote for McCain. If that’s the truth, I will have lost all hope for this country.

    “And, in a troubling sign for the Obama camp, only 50 percent of Pennsylvania voters who picked Clinton said they would vote for Obama if he was the Democratic nominee, while 26 percent said they would vote for McCain.

    Nineteen percent of Clinton’s Pennsylvania supporters said they would not vote in the fall if she was not the Democratic nominee.”
