His lead will be very small, especially against Obama.  Both can fight for the independent voters, but will be offset by the Religious Right/disgruntled Hillary supporters, making it rather hard to call.

Yeah, some ditz on GLP was whining that if Hillary wasn't given the "respect" of getting first refusal of the VP slot, that her followers shouldn't vote.

Its a common feeling, at least among the idiots of the internet.  Many people involved the DailyKos walkout also said if Obama won they would not vote in the election for him, because of his supporters.

And naturally, the McCain supporters are loving this, and have been make subtle statements to the Clinton crowd, implying that they went through the same thing with Ron Paul, and playing it sympathetic.  Obvious ploy is obvious, but the sentiments seem to be spreading.

fucking ridiculous. it's obvious to me that if anyone has any moral justification (if you believe in such a thing) for purposely voting against the winner of the primary, it's whoever is supporting a candidate that wins by every imaginable measure and still loses the nomination because of party insiders.

if your person loses after trying to steal the nomination through bullshit tactics, and you get pissed off about it enough to vote against the person who won by real votes, then you're a cock sprocket and that's all there is to it.

Yes.  It is also the only thing worth having, and the one thing that's damn near impossible to get.
