Please don’t vote for McCain.
I just read a great article in the Boston Globe written by Susan Jhirad, a professor of English at North Shore Community College, about the hard-line feminist Clinton supporters who threatened to vote for McCain in the general election if Clinton didn’t get the nomination. Some of them even now are so angry that they are claiming that that is what they will damn well do.
Perhaps I’m just being naïve, but I have a hard time believing that the majority of them will follow through with it. Some of them may choose to not vote at all, but I have enough faith in the intelligence of my fellow Democrats (though perhaps I really shouldn’t) that they will realize that they cannot do anything about Clinton not winning the nomination, and since their only options now are McCain and Obama, Obama is BY FAR the better choice.
I support Barack Obama for president. It’s OK that you have supported Hillary Clinton. I get it, I really do. What I don’t get, can’t get, is seeing some of you riled up Clinton supporters threatening to vote for McCain.
Let me get this straight; you consider yourself a Democrat and a feminist. Yet rather than vote for a man who supports a woman’s right to choose, children’s healthcare, and an end to the war in Iraq, you would vote for a man who voted against all of these things.
You would vote for a man who is promising to nominate far-right activists for the Supreme Court, a man who votes consistently against choice, affirmative action, and workers’ rights.
You would vote for a man who supports President Bush on most major issues vs. a man whose positions are quite similar to Clinton’s.
I just don’t get it.
Read the rest of the article; it is superbly written and puts into words what I’ve been feeling for months now.
