The Democratic Nominee for President of the United States of America

If we are willing to work for it, and fight for it, and believe in it, then I am absolutely certain that generations from now, we will be able to look back and tell our children that this was the moment when we began to provide care for the sick and good jobs to the jobless; this was the moment when the rise of the oceans began to slow and our planet began to heal; this was the moment when we ended a war and secured our nation and restored our image as the last, best hope on Earth. This was the moment – this was the time – when we came together to remake this great nation so that it may always reflect our very best selves, and our highest ideals. Thank you, God Bless you, and may God Bless the United States of America.
-- Barack Obama, June 3, 2008

The Democratic Party trainwreck has officially begun.

Did you see how she refused to concede tonight, despite his victory?

Have you also noticed how she is using gangster tactics to force her way onto the ticket.


I didn't think she would bow out tonight.

Don't be too pessimistic. If I had to guess now, I'd say Obama will win big and Clinton won't be on the ticket.

Can you believe and not fully want to invest you heart. That’s were I’m at mentally. Barack has my vote he’s had it since the primary here in Texas when I was out past midnight caucusing. I’m down and hoping that America gets it right this time around and that we don’t have a repeat of Bush/Gore.

No doubt about it__the she-THUG's behavior last night was reprehensible. But that's who she IS!

For her to have behaved any other way wouldve meant her having to go completely Against her UNcivilized, Arrogant and Ignorant-azz THUGGISH nature.

In short, it was never gonna happen.

BUT!!!...me thinks her Ignorant-azz finally went too far for party leaders and even many of her supporters (except her THUG-pal Bob Johnson). Her blatant attemp to STEAL the spotlight by pissing on quite an Historic moment in American history offended MANY Americans_Black Americans in particular_and embarrassed the Democratic Party!

I'm with Political Realm on this one_ at this moment, I believe that Barack will be elected our next President and her thuggish azz will NOT be his VP.

Will he have to work his butt off to gain the confidence of the majority of voting Americans?

Ya da*mn skippy he will!

Narcissistic Personality Features:

]..a condition characterized by an inflated sense of self-importance, need for admiration, extreme self-involvement, and lack of empathy for others. Individuals with this disorder are usually arrogantly self-assured and confident. They expect to be noticed as superior. Many highly successful individuals might be considered narcissistic. However, this disorder is only diagnosed when these behaviors become persistent and very disabling or distressing.


Vulnerability in self-esteem makes individuals with this disorder very sensitive to criticism or defeat. Although they may not show it outwardly, criticism may haunt these individuals these individuals and may leave them feeling humiliated, degraded, hollow, and empty. They may react with disdain, rage, or defiant counterattack. Their social life is often impaired due to problems derived from entitlement, the need for admiration, and the relative disregard for the sensitivities of others. Though their excessive ambition and confidence may lead to high achievement; performance may be disrupted due to intolerance of criticism or defeat. Sometimes vocational functioning can be very low, reflecting an unwillingness to take a risk in competitive or other situations in which defeat is possible. Individuals with this disorder have special difficulties adjusting to growing old and losing their former ?superiority?.


In this disorder, sustained feelings of shame or humiliation and the attendant self-criticism may be associated with social withdrawal, depressed mood, and Dysthymic or Major Depressive Disorder. In contrast, sustained periods of grandiosity may be associated with a hypomanic mood. Anorexia Nervosa, Substance-Related Disorders (especially related to cocaine), and other Personality Disorders (especially Histrionic, Borderline, Antisocial, and Paranoid) frequently co-occur with this disorder....]

Yep, sounds like Bill and Hillary to me!

BTW: Even George W. Bush had enough sense to formally Congratulate Barack on his win, as per MSNBC at about 9:45 AM this morning.
