Because of the hysteria in the blogosphere I am reposting this post that I wrote in August:
A recent post I wrote with James, defending Hillary from a racist Republican attack, has evoked e-mail and comment “accusations” that I am a “Hillary supporter.”
OF COURSE I AM A HILLARY SUPPORTER — I’M A DEMOCRAT!!
I also support Barack Obama, Chris Dodd and John Edwards! Duh!
I think I prefer Edwards and Dodd right now, because their polices and thinking and approach lines up more with my own. Obama sure is winning me over, too. I am more progressive-oriented than Hillary.
But let me suggest something to you — If Hillary Clinton becomes President, she will be the most progressive president America has ever had.
So relax. We have a great group of candidates this time.
That was August.
Now with that said let me add that our candidates should all be going after Republicans and defending each other. I will strongly support candidates who have an instinct to defend fellow Democrats against Republican attacks, in any race for any office. I will strongly support candidates who make it clear that they understand that the current Republican party has devolved into something unknown in American history, something dangerous and undemocratic and particularly dishonest.
