Not all Democrats falling for Obama

clipped from
Nothing personal, Sen. Obama, but our
re-election comes first. Barack Obama, for all his attention and
primary successes, does not go over so well in a fair number of
Democratic lawmakers' home districts. So it seems there is little
chance that some will endorse him for president.
Some are counting on Republican votes in their re-election bids.
Some are newly minted and in rematches with 2006 opponents. Some
may be wary of how their constituents will react to a black
presidential candidate. Some, too, have made it a practice of
distancing themselves from the national party, fearing the
inevitable campaign ad that has their face morphing into Howard
Dean, the party chairman, and Obama.
Rep. Dan Boren, the only congressional Democrat in Oklahoma,
calls Obama "the most liberal senator" in Congress and says he
has no plans to make a public endorsement.

  1. Hey, I love Hillary and have long done whatever she asks. While I am fully prepared to vote for Obama, per Hillary's request, there is a line I simply will not cross. Asking Hillary's most loyal supporters to vote for both the race-baiter Barack Obama and the Judas Bill Richardson on the very same ticket is just too much of a double-whammy of very bad politics. There are somt things we HRC supporters just wont do.
