The hard left did not want her. For reasons that she is sane and not part of the bush derangement syndrome and does not call for radical change and she voted for the war. But that is just the artsy fartsy vote. however, that plus the black vote (which is unbelievably racist – 9-1 in favor of obama) gave obama a plurality.
The rest of the field, the woman, white males with some brains, and the regular democrats would have voted for her, had she worn a skirt just once. Just once – hell, i would have crossed over and voted for her. let her take a week hiatus, lose 6-8 pounds and then about 8 more, get a tight skirt on – and then when that glib black dude says "you are liked well enough" let’s see the backlash. Pants suits are lame. they suck. she lost because of them.
