People Are Pissed Here At Hillary

I am still at Yearly Kos, and I can tell you, Senator Clinton's decicision to skip the question and answer session, which every other candidate is participating in, is ticking people off.

What is it with her campaign? Everytime they do something that excites the base, like taking on O'Reilly, they snub a core constituency, in what only seems like an constant effort to extend a middle finger.

People can stay home next year if you are the nominee Mrs. Clinton. People like me and my wife who life in the unimportant state of Ohio. And frankly, I am getting really sick of all the positioning, posturing and pretend-support for a reasonable agenda of getting out of the war, providing universal healthcare and cleaning up elections. You've been forewarned.

Here is Obama's take:

"Why turn down the opportunity to hear from people excited about bringing change to Washington and new leadership to the White House?" spokeswoman for the Illinois Senator's campaign, Jen Psaki, said in an e-mail to RAW STORY. "It is Barack Obama's birthday and he can't think of a better place to be."

I'll agree with you there! My primary vote WILL NOT be for Hillary. Go tell them that - I'm sure it'll make them quake in their boots, lol ;)

Heads up.

Peter Daou, HRC's campaign Internet Director posted this over at DailyKos (emphasis mine):

"Last night, there was an announcement at YearlyKos that Hillary would not conduct a breakout session after the Presidential Leadership Forum. Attendees who were under the impression that they had signed up to see Hillary were understandably upset. The organizers posted a diary last night clarifying what happened.

"Our campaign made clear over a week ago that Hillary would be participating in the forum but would not be able to make the breakout session. Ann Lewis, a senior advisor to the campaign and the director of women's outreach, was due to conduct the breakout. However, after seeing the mix-up, and knowing that the organizers have worked very hard to pull together a great event, Hillary asked her staff to rearrange her schedule and we have been working with the organizers since early this morning to work out the details.

"Hillary will now join the breakout session for a good portion of the time. Ann Lewis and other senior staffers will conduct the remainder of the session.

"Please check with the organizers for new details of the session.

"We look forward to seeing you in Chicago!"

Now settle down.

Regarding Jen Psaki's dig about how Obama "can't think of a better place to be."

It seemed that Obama didn't think the first presidential forum with AFSCME union members in Nevada back in February was a better place to--compared to the private dinner at David Geffen's house for donors who've committed to raising $46,000. Maybe he thought he didn't need the union votes.

Jen needs to be careful. Karma has a way of biting.

Thanks for the update Corinne. I can't wait to hear how it went. Stuck in Washington and it sounds like I am missing the fun.

So far, I'm leaning toward Edwards in the Primary. I never thought I would say that because in the beginning, I thought he was too weak and wouldn't fight. He certainly has proved me wrong and gained my vote. My daughter lives in New Hampshire and she just went to see Edwards last weekend. He was speaking at a place that was a five minute walk from her apartment. She had a seat in the third row from the front right in the middle of the stage. She said he was amazing. Not only did you take time to take questions, but was running late and had to run to his next stop. So he said that whoever had a question that he didn't get a chance to answer, to go to his website and e-mail him. He also said to be sure to write that they were at that event, because he will answer those e-mails personally.

Maybe Hillary could take some notes on how to talk to voters.

That was not as upsetting to me as her pledge to continue to take money from big PACs. That indicates a deeper problem in my mind. She's lost my vote for the primary, but I'd vote for a dead monkey over anyone in the GOP in the general.
