What a difference a year makes

Just one year ago, … thoughts of having Hillary and Bill Clinton back in the White House provoked excitement, [and] Hillary was the overwhelming choice. [But] as 2007 progressed … [and] Hillary didn’t succumb to liberal pressures, the angry left embarked on a Hillary-abolishment crusade.

By mid-2007, anti-Hillary liberals found their revenge: Barack Obama. Obviously, Hillary still has support: [She won] in New Hampshire, [although] according to left-wing media, the Democratic primary [there] was fraudulent. …

Why are [those of] the extreme left burning their bridges behind them? Obviously the primaries create party division. Unfortunately, progressives might not merge at the end of the primary. … This could be disastrous for the Democratic Party. Will this attitude carry into Super Tuesday? If Hillary wins, would their agenda prevent unity?

Will progressives connect and vote for Hillary if she is selected? Based on Democratic talk shows, no—disapproving Hillary’s policies is imperative.

Has Hillary Clinton joined the ranks of Joe Lieberman, Zell Miller and Dennis Kucinich? If so, her future in the heisted Democratic Party is over. All the hard-hitting liberals have sided with Barack Obama. … If Hillary were elected president, would Democrats abandon her? With Democratic and Republican resistance, the nation will suffer even more.

There might be a positive from all of this. For the first time ever, Stephanie Miller and Rush Limbaugh agree with each other: They both hate Hillary. This confirms [that] loathing is not partisan—[both] the extreme right and the extreme left are full of hate.

Clinton and Obama may be the final straw in dividing the nation to the point of no return. With racism and sexism at the forefront, can Americans see past the rhetoric and do what’s best for the country?
