It's Still Obama VS. Hillary

The campaigns both claim new bonds of unity, but talk to any former Hillary supporter for 2.3 seconds and you know that's a crock... I'm sure seeing the latest Zogby/Reuters poll that Obama had not only squandered his 7 pt. lead over McCain, but was now 5 pts. behind didn't help instill the needed confidence in Barry...

"A massive e-mail and Internet campaign is under way aimed at derailing the nomination of Barack Obama and making Hillary Clinton the party’s standard bearer next week at the Democratic National Convention in Denver.

“I think it’s divisive for the ‘Support Hillary’ campaign to continue at this time. She made the decision to fully support Mr. Obama,” said Lowery, who initially supported Clinton but later switched his allegiance to Obama. “I don’t know why they’re not taking their cue from Hillary and falling in line.”

Lowery said he does not believe Clinton herself is behind the effort, but that it’s “her supporters, acting on their own because they’re proud of what they have done for her.” (source)

But here in the City of Brotherly Love it goes a bit deeper. You see, as I have posted about many times...this is a HUGE union city. That means many, many people here have who they are supposed to vote for dictated to them --and they listen! It's not just the labor unions, but the police and fire unions, the nurses union, etc. etc. If Obama is the nominee they will have to finally think for themselves and go against their almighty unions for the first time and they're obviously very uncomfortable at that prospect. See, we've had race-based politics for YEARS here in Philly and have seen the folly of voting for an unqualified person based solely on the color of their skin. It doesn't work. Barry is NOT qualified to be President. Full stop. Hence (IMO) the lawsuit challenging Barack Hussein's ability to be the nominee:

"A prominent Philadelphia attorney and Hillary Clinton supporter filed suit this afternoon in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Pennsylvania against Illinois Sen. Barack Obama and the Democratic National Committee. The action seeks an injunction preventing the senator from continuing his candidacy and a court order enjoining the DNC from nominating him next week, all on grounds that Sen. Obama is constitutionally ineligible to run for and hold the office of President of the United States." (Read the whole story at Stop the ACLU)
