(Update, I think my title was too long, shortened it)

Ok, I'm going to make this short and sweet.  Like many of you, I'm very angry right now about Hillary and her comments.

My ass she was only talking about Bill and June!  Which, by the way, thanks Hillary and Sirhan Sirhan for ruining my birthday month!  Yeah, that's right,the supposedly esteemed senator in with that bastard that killed Robert Kennedy.  This woman's had that incident on her mind for a long damn time, and Olbermann has proven it.

This is why she's staying in.  Not because she's the better candidate.  Not because Florida.  To me that was an excuse.  No, this women in her Geraldine  Ferarro moment, revealed what many unfortunately have thought.  That something is gonna happen to Barack Obama, first probably something having to do with Tony Retzko, then who knows something else about his past.  And if it wasn't something about his past, it would probably be something he or his wife would say, it was all part of the underestimation of the abilities of this man by the Clintonistas.  But of course the last thing, the one thing that was in the darkest regions of the Clintons' minds were RFK.

When I was young, no actually really even today, I always figured that this country took some sort of alternate reality turn when both JFK was gunned down in Dallas, and later his brother Robert in California.  Something inside me, perhaps its because my mind isn't exactly the best, but it felt as if this country wasn't supposed to go down this path.  That the first Kennedy administration was to herald something that Franklin Delano Roosevelt gave us, something like a New Deal.  That because of his death, his successor gave us Vietnam (yes, I know even back to Eisenhower we had "advisers" there) which lead us to Nixon which gave us Jimmy Carter (not a bad man, despite what many have claimed) which gave us...gulp..Reagan.  You know the rest.

The same with Robert F. Kennedy, that had he not died that June, that he would have become President of the United States.  I remember reading a book about such a thing, wasn't all that bad. Imagine, no Vietnam, no Nixon...perhaps no Reagan Revolution and the bastard we got now.   The thing is, history was taken away from us twice.

This is why she must understand that the idea of assassination should not be taken lightly.  Because it is indeed history that is at stake.  We all know the alternative, a Republican victory this November. This wasn't her time, yet she holds on in an almost Lucrezia Borgia fashion, that by some vile chance that her destiny will be given to her through the misfortune of others.  I'm sorry, but this should not be.  

Hillary, you showed your hand, and darling what we see isn't at all nice.  No, if something, God forbid, did happen to Barack, I don't give a damn if you are left running. You know, perhaps I would have voted for you, but not anymore, you don't even deserve the votes you've gotten now.  To secretly pine, and don't deny it, the misfortune of another Democrat of this degree betrays all those who did vote for you.

But we must be realists, I guess, and see that perhaps your black widow wish may come to pass.  And if history is to be taken from us again, then my dear, I say this with the utmost respect (which is decreasing every moment for you), it won't be you I will move to support.  No, as mentioned, God forbid, Obama could not run, I will do what I can to get John Edwards to replace him.  If any man, any outside of Barack Obama could be heir to the Kennedy's and the Roosevelt's move for reform, it is John Edwards.  

Lastly, though you probably will never read this (not exactly the best blogger on here, I will admit), I hope you do realize that you need to drop out. If not for political reasons, then for personal ones.  When a person wishing to achieve a position of authority has reached a point where they see the door opening with the closing of the casket door of another, then its time to quit.  You know, I started this entry in anger, but now, getting it all out, I feel sorry for you.  Hillary, it's time, leave not just for the sake of the party, but do it for yourself.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.

    To everyone who read this, thank you so much.  Tip or not, I hope you all have a pleasant Memorial Day weekend.  Thanks to all the soldiers out there who in the past and present put their lives on the line. God bless you all.

    so we can pray, light white candles that he is protected and that no harm will come his way.  For those who can visualize, we can visuzlize a circle of white light around him as in St. Michael, keeping him from safe and from harm of those who want to harm him.  I do this every day anyway but it is more potent when many do this.  I am sure there are many already who pray for his safety and for McCain and Hillary also.

    for a while. Something is amiss here. Clinton can't be as dumb as this. And her staying in the race in the face of insurmountable odds. It is like she's trying to tell us something, or at least tell Barack something. This latest of hers might be to get us to listen, instead of just hammering on her refusal to exit.

    What if, if Clinton has tangible evidence that something is coming Barack's way, but she can't say so out loud? Think about that, for a moment.

    Restore Democracy! Denounce the GOP (Georgie's Orwellian Party)!

    Those people who do all the standing around and seating people before events and do so in a pleasant, professional, and courteous manner help us reach January 20, 2009, by demonstrating a postive example for others to subsribe.

    We can also be responsible gun owners.  If you own a gun, don't stand in the way of legislation that will keep guns out of the hands of those who would do others harm.

    We can also change our penal system.  When former felons are released they need to be hired into a decent paying job.  Can you help by hiring a former felon at your place of employment?

    Our children need a good start.  Based upon the Harlem Promise Neighborhoods, Barack Obama would like to establish twenty more such neighborhoods that offer community support for children in poverty until they reach the age of 18.

    Once January 20, 2009, is behind us, we'll still have a lot of work to do.

  •  You are very wrong about JFK... (0+ / 0-)

    First of all, he was the one who started the escalation in Vietnam.  [It's certainly true that LBJ brought the war to yet another level.]

    Secondly, despite his good intentions, he wasn't able to get much significant legislation passed.  It was only after his assassination, when LBJ was President, that his core program got passed.  That was partly due to pressure to legislate his legacy coupled with LBJ's superior political skills.

    This whole blog is nothing but hate speech.  If Keith Olbermann would get a clue and read any other blog besides this, he wouldn't be jeopardizing his entire career with anit-Hillary poison, and neither would you.  I was alive when Bobby Kennedy was assassinated, and it was the saddest time of my life, but it's just about as sad now as people take her remarks out of context and deliberately misunderstand in order to spew venom and hatred in our party.  She was clearly talking about how a race can be changed by events,  I lived through it.  Why don't you ask the Kennedys how they feel about her comments.  Why don't you wake up to the hate speech this site fosters?
