Blah!

Call me crazy but, I don't care which big name endorses a candidate. At the end of the day, my vote is MY vote. The Kennedys can vote for whomever they choose to. I am pretty sure they have different concerns than me. These endorsements kill me!

I think you have to take endorsements with a grain of salt, but there is something deep and truthful to intuit from the lack of endorsements.

I have already voted for Senator Obama in early voting, and I expect to vote for him again in November. If, in fact, Senator Clinton is the Democratic nominee, I will NOT be voting for her.

I will vote in November, and just leave my selection for President blank. There is no way I could vote for the Clintons after the divisive, malicious way that they have injected race into the campaign and dismissed the thousands of people (Black, white and otherwise) who voted in the SC Primary.

Interestingly, H. Clinton is campaigning in FL where there are no delegates, explaining herself by saying that the people of FL should have their votes counted (especially since they might go in her favor). What about the folks who just voted in SC, who had their votes dismissed -- oh, I forgot those were majority Black Jesse Jackson redux votes.

I find the Clintons' behavior disgusting and unbecoming of anyone who wants to be president of the most diverse country in the world.

Naymon

James, that's a horrible idea. Hillary, John Edwards or especially Barack Obama would each be much better than Mitt Romney or John McCain and not voting helps them.

As far as the race campaign, there is enough blame for both sides. It's becoming very frustrating to hear other Obama supporters ignore the many crazy things their fellow supporters said and did. Obama wasn't even attracting the majority of black voters until he won Iowa.

James

It may sound like a horrible idea, but this is not a game. My vote is priceless and I refuse to give it to anyone who I'm not comfortable with.

After their behavior over the past few weeks, there is absolutely no way they could represent me. I am a proud Black, gay man, but I am so much more: optimistic, passionate, inquisitive, and full of hope.

I'm tired of the hatred, division and cynicism of the past eight years. I'm not going backwards. A vote for H. Clinton is an endorsement of the divisive past. I also choose not to vote for the Clintons because of policy decisions made the first time around:
DOMA.
Don't Ask Don't Tell.
The Reorganization of the Federal Govt. in which millions of Black people lost thier jobs.
The end of welfare in which millions of poor people were essentially railroaded off of welfare into even deeper levels of poverty and despair.

Ed

I cosign James. I was a political science major have followed politics since I was in Jr High School. I have voted in every election since I was able to vote and I used to tell my parents who to vote for before I was able to vote.
I cannot imaging not voting in an election, but after the actions of the Clinton's in SC, I feel that if Obama is not the democratic candidate in Nov., I will not vote for president.

This idea is killing me because of my passion for politics, but I cannot see myself voting for Hillary after SC. The way that Bill performed in SC makes me sick to my stomach. I have always been a fan of the Clintons and was looking forward to H. Clinton's turn as Pres., because of Bill. But after SC, the last thing I want is 4 or 8 years of the Clinton's in office. I can now see why there is a limit on the number of terms that a president can serve.

"...the way that Bill Clinton performed in S. Carolina..."

Yes, Ed, the way that Big Cigar Bill performed, NOT Hillary. She probably cussed his out of control ass out after the backlash from the black community--a community NO Democrat can afford to offend. Roberts, Alito, Thomas and the sub-human Scalia--that's all I have to chant to myself, then I can vote for any Democrat...even old senile, red-neck KKK Robert Byrd.
