    certain likes and dislikes, and certain points of view, shaped by their experiences.

    The DKos community by and large likes Obama better than HRC. It, like MyDD or the DLC, is under no obligation to remain neutral. It has a certain history which shapes it's outlook. By and large, Dkosers do not appreciate triangulation, waffling or parsing; neither do they like the wing of the democratic party that refuses to yield power to the grassroots.

    Therefore, by and large, Dkos likes Obama better than HRC. Deal with it.

    •  How is this attack (9+ / 0-)

      even slightly responsive to this diary?  And what do you mean "deal with it"?  Do you mean I must not post diaries that say anything other than "Obama is great"?  Am I not allowed to question diaries, or to post something from another point of view?  I know this place had a preference, but I was not aware it passed new rules.  If it has, show me, and I will "deal with it."  If it has not, then you, sir, are the one who must "deal with it."  If this is the sort of response a Hillary supporter gets for posting a factual and substantive diary, then you are actually making Obama and his supporters look bad, not me.  Is your goal truly to leave such a bad taste it the mouth of a dedicated Democrat that I simply can not bring myself to push the button for Obama, no matter what my sig line might say?  Really, is that productive?

      If you refuse to vote for OUR PARTY'S nominee in November, the blood of a thousand back-alley abortions will be on your hands.

      and he's waffled on a variety of issues like the move on ad.

      •  whereas HRC (0+ / 0-)

        is the most straightforward politician in Washington and has always supported the netroots and grassroots party activism

        •  she defended Move On... (0+ / 0-)

          in a very straighforward way...but as it stands Clinton really isn't Obama's opponent anymore, barring a scandal he only needs to keep it close form now on and he's won the nomination.
