White Female Clinton Supporters: Why So Angry?

What did Clinton supporters expect the Democratic National Committee’s Rules and Bylaws Committee to do with the Florida and Michigan delegate allocation?

How can there be no penalties after rules were broken?  What would happen in 2012?

It has been revealed that Barack Obama had enough votes in Michigan’s write in ballots (write in ballots were not initially counted) to demand a 50/50 delegate allocation in Michigan but he left the allocation up to the RBC — the RBC split the delegates 69/59 in Clinton’s favor.  Barack Obama could have insisted on something other than half a vote for each Florida delegate but he didn’t — he left the allocation up to the RBC.  After the rulings Senator Clinton came out ahead with a net of 24 delegates more than Senator Obama.

How is this Barack Obama’s fault?

I don’t understand all the hate being projected onto Barack Obama.  How is Hillary losing his fault?  It’s a competition and he’s winning.  Are people angry just because he’s running and winning? What would they prefer?  That he did not run?  If anyone is to blame it’s Hillary for not running a better race.  Hillary was the ‘Presumptive Nominee’ when the race started.  It was her race to lose.

I am a HUGE sports fan.  I want the LA Lakers to win the NBA Championship but I won’t HATE the Boston Celtics if they win.  I would be disappointed that the Lakers lost, but I would have to respect the Celtics for winning.  If they win it’s only because they played a better game.

In sports there’s nothing more exciting than a highly competitive game; I love a game that goes into overtime.  The only difference in this nomination process is that it’s the fourth quarter and Barack Obama is winning and it doesn’t look like his opponent can score enough points to win.  It’s a competition, someone has to win.

Do you remember this years Super Bowl game between the New York Giants and the highly favored New England Patriots?  The game was one of the most significant upsets in Super Bowl history.  It was an exciting game!  The Giants (14-6) won 17–14 preventing the Patriots (18-1) from becoming the first undefeated team since the 1972 Miami Dolphins went 17–0.

The Giants became the first NFC wild card team to win a Super Bowl!
