If they want to win back the White House come November.
Apparently Obama during a meeting with the Black Congressional Caucus made this statement in reference to the ‘healing’ that still needs to be done by many Clinton supporters,
I need to make a decision in the next few months as to how I manage that since I’m running against John McCain, which takes a lot of time. If women take a moment to realize that on every issue important to women, John McCain is not in their corner, that would help them get over it.
Apparently, Rep Sheila Jackson Lee, D-Texas, an ardent Clinton supporter took offense to the last three words, ‘get over it’ and she told Obama as much.
However, though I’m sure Obama meant no offense I must say that I do believe that those Clinton supporters who are still harbouring ill feelings towards Obama should ‘get over it’. Clinton lost, he won but WE all want to win come November and we can’t do that if they don’t and wouldn’t get over the primary results.
We can’t win in November with a divided party and in this election unlike many others in the past, every single vote and I mean EVERY single vote will matter. This election the choice couldn’t be more simple.
Do you want another eight years of disaster or eight years of prosperity?
Believe me, I can understand how many of her supporters feel in some of my earlier posts I was leaning towards not supporting Clinton or the Democrats if SHE won but I finally came to the conclusion that I want what’s best for America and regardless of the outcome between the two, Obama and Clinton, voting for John McCain was not an option!
And I hope that Clinton’s supporters realize that before it’s too late.
Besides, like my mom always said to me when I lost a race (I did athletics in high school..), ” There’s always next time…”
