WHY OBAMA AND NOT CLINTON
In the preceding entry, I explained my decision to support Barack Obama as a strategic one. But I didn't bother to explain the strategy or describe how it came about. Sorry about that.
That strategy--a decision, really--solidified after I watched a group of video interviews conducted among voters of both parties following the maverick Florida primaries. I'd read and heard negative comments about Hillary before, but nothing like the venom spewed by a number of the male Republicans interviewed.
I concluded the depth of Hillary hatred isn't something Democrats should waste our time pondering or countering. I determined then that I would support Hillary Clinton if she won the nomination but would cast my primary vote for another candidate.
That 'other' candidate, originally John Edwards, was Barack Obama.
