I would have a lot of respect for Hillary Clinton if she dropped out of the race now, and spent her considerable energy and experience to boost the Democratic Party and Barack Obama, and to sputter all her poison on McCain.
Wishful thinking, probably. I suppose it's really hard in such a situation, when you've worked so hard and only had one goal in mind, to step back and let go. That goes not only for Hillary, it also goes for her supporters. It must be tough, and very bitter.
But here's the clinch: we need you guys. If we want to win the presidential election in November, we all have to pull on the same string. I know Hillary supporters who don't want to vote or even want to vote for McCain if Obama wins the nomination. That is... dangerous, to say the least.
Of course it's easy to argue from the (hopefully!) winning side (although I did start out as a Hillary supporter way back when she first ran for Senator - and then she lost me with her vote for the war). But let's all look forward and work together towards the goal that we really want to obtain: to push the Republicans out of the White House. Surely that should be worth it, no?
