Aboutface...

I hate to admit it but I cannot stand Hillary Clinton anymore. I hate her guts and not for any kind of trivial reason either. When the election season started I really was ambivalent towards her. I thought she would make a good president if she won the nomination. After watching her campaign get nastier and nastier in PA, I had to finally come to terms with my hatred. Apparently I'm not the only one because she watched a 20 point lead fall to 10 due to her lack of tact. I want her to stay in the race now. I want her to watch what should have been her nomination from the beginning slowly slip from her grasp like a frozen DiCaprio in Titanic. I want her to feel like she's floating on a board in the middle of the Atlantic ocean shivering and wondering what the hell had happened to her.

I guess the NYT feels the same way:

"The Pennsylvania campaign, which produced yet another inconclusive result on Tuesday, was even meaner, more vacuous, more desperate, and more filled with pandering than the mean, vacuous, desperate, pander-filled contests that preceded it.
Voters are getting tired of it; it is demeaning the political process; and it does not work. It is past time for Senator Hillary Rodham Clinton to acknowledge that the negativity, for which she is mostly responsible, does nothing but harm to her, her opponent, her party and the 2008 election.
If nothing else, self interest should push her in that direction. Mrs. Clinton did not get the big win in Pennsylvania that she needed to challenge the calculus of the Democratic race. It is true that Senator Barack Obama outspent her 2-to-1. But Mrs. Clinton and her advisers should mainly blame themselves, because, as the political operatives say, they went heavily negative and ended up squandering a good part of what was once a 20-point lead."


Remember, they endorsed her as their candidate. Ouch!

Yeah, I was also abmivalent but OK with Hillary if she had won the nomination, at first. Now I REALLY HATE HER! I get a migraine when I hear her cackle voice. I just cannot believe that there are so many people still out there who don't see who she really is! Unless they do, but their little prejudice and/or feminist brain implant does not allow them to vote for the better candidate.
The qualities she has shown to have in abundance make me want to vomit! She is compulsive liar, dishonest, petty, childish, selfish, extremely self-centered, tunel visioned, nasty, vindictive, arrogant, elitist, and disengenuous. The manner in which she has ruthlessly & unfairly attacked Barack Obama, her Demcratic colleague has been utterly disgusting and shameful!. Obama is not the enemy here!
Her inability to differentiate between an opponent and an enemy is very troubling and exemplefies her lack of good judgment. I certainly don't want another President who has poor judgment, is dishonest and lies to the American people, and will run over anyone who might not fit in the current agenda.
If Hillary knew how to behave herself like a mature adult, I would have no problem if she wanted to continue in the Democratic Nominating race until the cows came home, but since she does not know how to behave properly and is hurting the chances of the real Democratic Nominee as well as the Democratic party, I say she needs to pack up her kitchen sink and go home before she inflicts any more damage to all of us.
