Kos at DailyKos says Hillary knows she can only win “via coup by super delegate”
Yet a coup by super delegate would sunder the party in civil war. Clinton knows this, it’s her only path to victory, and she doesn’t care. She is willing — nay, eager to split the party apart in her mad pursuit of power.
People like me have two choices — look the other way while Clinton attempts to ignite her civil war, or fight back now, before we cross that dangerous line.
And the more super delegates see what is happening, and what Clinton has in store, the more imperative it is that they line up behind Obama and put an end to it before it’s too late.
DailyKos gets 150,000-250,000 visits a day and is influential. This post by Kos is in part a response to a Clinton-supporters “strike” at DailyKos and is getting huge traction in the blogosphere.
One basic rule of politics is that it’s best not to kill your opponents because you might need their support sometime down the line.
(The other) Connecticut Bob has an impassioned post about this. A fratricidal internal war among the Dems would be disastrous because come November whoever the candidate is will need votes and support from everyone in the party.
