Will Hillary Democrats Actually Vote McCain?
According to a new poll from Planned Parenthood that was commissioned through Peter Hart, 50% of of American women in key battleground states don't know John McCain's record on women's reproductive rights. By the time the general election rolls around they will. Hillary Democrats may be mad now, but I'm betting they won't scuttle their daughter's and granddaughter's civil rights on the altar of anger. McCain has voted against affordable family planning, cancer screening for low income women, sex education, and a host of other women's issues, including ignoring the importance of equal pay.

These die-hard anti-Obama voters are now spanning out across the internet, with Sean Hannity happy to play up the divisions on Hannity & Colmes. He featured a woman from "Just say no deal" that has sprung up where anti-Obama zealots can register. Their pitch is "if you thought you were alone, you're wrong." What they intend to do to change the outcome of the race is unknown. Getting on Fox is easy if you're slamming Obama. Making an impact on the ground is hard.
But again, will these people really vote for John McCain?
I will NEVER vote for BO. I think we don't know anything about him, as we do her, and this is just a popularity contest initiated by teenagers who would vote for 50 cent if given the chance. I was here for the post primary caucus and was subjected to a terrorizing night of having to guard ballots for three hours from the militant BO supporters because they did not allow us enough time to close the polls before the caucus mob pushed their way into the building. This is a clue of what is to come. I don't want anything to do with it. There will not be any McBush signs in my yard, but I will not vote if need be... - CD
...His membership in his church speaks volumes about his real views. 20 years cannot be washed away. I will vote for Mc Cain. - JG
Or will they not vote?
It's a long way to November.
Yet I'm also starting to hear a few voices rising, more and more everyday, who know we've got to find a way to heal. It's all about Hillary Democrats getting respect.
I'd take it one step further. It's about Hillary being shown respect from Senator Obama, his team and the entire Democratic Party who stood by silently while the media sexism boiled over without one peep from the political party who is supposed to be a champion for women's rights.
In the end only Hillary can bring her supporters back into the fold and over to Obama. But Barack's going to have to reach out to Hillary to make it happen.
The Democratic Party needs Hillary more than they know and her supporters are going to make sure they don't forget it.
