Lea Lane's article: Do whatever you must to trick Hillary supporters into voting for Barack.

From LSekhmet at Alegre's Corner, A MUST READ

This article by Lea Lane is truly awful; it's called, "Do Whatever You Must to Trick Hillary Supporters Into Voting for Barack" -- and it's disgusting. (The secondary title, btw, is: "Eat Crow? Hell Yes, to Win This Election."

Here's the first two paragraphs:

The Obama team is suddenly making a huge effort to gain women's votes, but many die-hard Hillary supporters - dozens of my acquaintances - remain bruised and confused. The fact that Palin is on the ticket when HRC wasn't even vetted may turn out to have been the major gaffe of Axelrod and Company, and the tipping point of this tight election.

If you've been an outspoken Obama supporter from the beginning, it's time to make amends with Hillary supporters you know. Arguing with, or browbeating them to get on board is counterproductive, but showing you've come around to respecting Hillary may ease their hurt enough to do the trick. (Even if you don't mean it. This is politics.)
