If Democrats Can’t Unify After 8 Years Of Bush, Then They Do Not Deserve To Govern

Senator Hillary Clinton made her convention speech yesterday. Many say it was a very strong speech. Maybe they are right. It was very gracious at many points. 

For my very small part in this process, I never supported Senator Clinton. But I made clear as long ago as last October that I would support her strongly if she were the nominee.

All I can say this morning is that if Democrats can’t unify after 8 years of George Bush and threat of four more wasted years under John McCain, then they do not deserve to govern. This is the election year we have and this is the chance we have to move forward in this country.

  1. I agree. If the Dems can’t put this away after the last 8 years and running against McSame, they don’t deserve to govern. Obviously they’d need to go back to the drawing board and learn to work together first.

    HOWEVER, I’d like to add to that. If Americans as a whole continue to make the same mistakes over and over, then we deserve what we get.

  2. Sad, but true. We will all suffer because of the spoiled rotten antics of a particular Democratic group.

  3. dare3000—When you make the same mistake over and over, it is at some point up to you to change. Let’s hope the people are up to it.

    steadycat—Well, we’ll see how it progresses. Hopefully the threat of Mr. McCain will be enough.

    Thanks for both comments.

  4. its up to the people not the party to make better choices for themselves. too bad all these stupid fucking people need to be led and told what to do.

  5. Bill—I think parties can provide a shorthand for the huge number of issues voters face. It’s true that people could think better for themselves, but parties serve a real purpose in a democracy.

    Without parties, politicians would be (more) free to act without regard to any anchor of a bascially accepted set of views. They would be total free agents accountable to nothing but big money donors.

    As bad as things are now, I feel they would be even worse without parties.
