As repugnant as I find the option, if we can’t get Bernie Sanders to the finish line, I intend to vote for Hillary Clinton. I care too much to chance a Trump, Cruz, or Kasich presidency.
But, that said, if HRC’s supporters continue to disrespect the efforts of others aspiring to something better, and if they continue to prematurely declare victory, their tone-deaf strategy will inadvertently push votes away.
How many? Who knows? And should Trump win, will Hillary understand how her campaign will have contributed to the outcome?
I, for one, had been strongly inclined to support whomever the party elected in our primaries — without hesitation. But now I am so angered by Hillary’s condescension that to cast a vote for her feels tantamount to sentencing our future generations to an awfully bleak future — led by a person who has succumbed to the greed of the party to the right.
Never miss a local story.
If only the Hillary campaign had displayed some class, they would not now have to worry whether we will get behind her, should she win. The smug assumption that Bernie doesn’t stand a chance, even as he has clearly gained enough support to threaten her candidacy, is all bluff, designed to discourage dreams for the better country to which Bernie will lead us.
You, Hillary, with your “can’t do” attitude, have not yet earned our votes.
