Okay guys, I've done a 180 on this VP issue ...
Front-paged by James After reflecting on the content of the speeches by Senators Obama and Clinton last Tuesday, I did a bit of soul-searching on the issue of my having supported the draftobamaclinton.com movement.
I am uncomfortable with the notion that any candidate can lay claim to deciding how they are going to use their 18M votes going forward as did Senator Clinton-- in spite of the fact that Sen Obama is the presumptive nominee.
Your votes are entrusted to a candidate, and they can be withdrawn. And in the aftermath of her remarks on Tuesday evening Senator Clinton has obviously changed her course.
It's understandable how she must have felt as she spoke on Tuesday. I imagine that in the moment-- after such a historical, grueling primary season-- the pressures and emotions with which she was grappling were daunting.
