Sadly I find myself, angry at Senator Hillary Rodham Clinton, her position she supported is not up on Obama platform and the sexism that faced her, face Palin, and most of it came out of the Obama camp, I believe what Madeline Albright said there is a place in hell for women who don't support other women, I do not go blindly to McCain / Palin, and I do not support this ticket just because Palin is a woman, but they most represent our ideals, and how can I support Obama when his platform really does not support Senator Hillary Rodam Clinton's let's face it his Health care is not really universal, and the whole bull of equal work for equal pay is a myth to him just look at his Senate office women make less than men and don't hold high position. McCain Senate office supports equal pay for equal work, this is a fact, plus Palin has proved that she can balance budgets and handle an executive position, none of the other candidates have this experience, and look at her approval rating 80% that is off the charts for any Governor, plus she has done what she said she would do. Senator Clinton is looking like a sell out and pathetic and I hate to say that, cause I believe in her...
Country before party...
Obama is un trust worthy and the issues that keeps haunting him of his past, and associates...
We need to tell Senator Hillary Rodham Clinton that you are supporting a man, and a camp that has unleashed sexist attacks on you and Palin. This should not have been tolerated of women of America let alone you...
Sincerely Ms. Matthews

"they most represent our ideals"

If you honestly believe this, you are blind - either that or you never really supported Hillary's ideals in the first place.

You voice my views precisely Ms Mattews! SEXISM is SEXISM...and I saw a lot of it against Hillary and I see a lot of it against Sarah Palin!

I will NEVER vote for Obama though I was a Hillary supporter. I feel obama will be bad for our country...and that's my opinion.

and the idea that I cannot like Hillary or want her in office because I won't vote for Obama is ludicrious!

Beth, I read the platform, and I was at the finale platform meeting, it has been more than thirty five years since a women's issue have been on the platform, just because some of the things on the platform include some women issue in it, does not make it a platform issue, as for Senator Hillary Rodham Clinton, I knew much of what she had on her platform, little of it showed up on the finale Democratic platform. Senator Hillary Clinton was firm on Universal Health care, not on the platform, it is a revised version, Hillary supported equal pay for equal work, not on the finale platform in total form, most what she supported was either gutted or tossed completely, that is fact, and to hear her go on about Obama when he slammed her with just as much sexist banter as the media, now he is the best things since sliced bread is a crock, it is pathetic, even she on the primary campaign trail, said this man is dangerous, now he is groovy, don't buy it...

"Just because it's in the plaform, doesn't mean it's part of the platform"?

Are you kidding me? That's impressive double-speak even for this forum.

Bravo for Sen McCain if his OFFICE supports equal pay. Unfortunately, his VOTES - which have a bit more affect on the rest of us - have not.

There is no way to claim that McCain is a stronger supporter or women's rights, or that his positions across the board are closer to Hillary's than Sen. Obama's. No how, no way.

Beth, have you ever heard of "what you resist persist?"

you are resisting what these Hillary supporters feel and therefore leave them with not being heard. This is the big missing from the democratic party. Instead, they (including you) resort to ridicule and/or "correction".

Can you just get that Obama is not for them? You are not going to win them over by "proving them wrong".

What can I say? I still think people are worth talking to/arguing with even when we disagree. I'm not afraid to have people voice a different opinion so I assume other folks aren't either.

Maybe I just have a higher opinion of people's intelligence and ability to speak and think for themselves than you do.

Hillary, really the sexism of Obama is closer to you than the McCain's deeds???
I'm angry too.
