An open letter to Senator Hillary Clinton
Dear Senator Clinton,
Stop! Please stop! Stop sounding like a crazy angry perpetually PMS'ed mad woman. When I hear you speak these days you don't sound like you are giving a "Let's win one for the Gipper" speech but more like you are scolding an entire nation full of misogynists. Can't you say anything without sounding snippy, whiny, or angry?
Stop the negative ads against Obama. Obama is not your enemy. Obama is simply running for the same position as you are. Stop telling us how unprepared he is to be president. Stop making innuendos that he is Muslim and standing by the people in your campaign that continue to make racist remarks.
Stop pretending that you have experience just because you were first lady for eight years. I don't want my dentist's wife drilling on my teeth just because she is married to my dentist! Stop trying to make your USO tours look like foreign policy meetings. And please check your date book, because you arrived the day after the borders in Kosovo were opened to refugees, so you couldn't have had an influence in that. You weren't even there!
Stop wasting your money, your energy and your party's time by carrying on this campaign. The numbers truly are against you and it is time for us to be united behind one candidate who can lead the Democratic party to a victory in November. Do you realize that Rush Limbaugh is encouraging Republicans to cross party lines in open primary seats to vote for you because the Republicans know that if it came down between a choice of you or Senator McCain that the majority of this nation would vote for the Republican. Do you really want 4 more years of Republican control of the executive branch? Do you really want 4 more years of nothing getting done? Do you really want 100 more years of war in the Middle East?
Stop, please stop thinking that Senator Obama's supporters are a bunch of Kool-aide drinking radical dunderheads who can't think for themselves and are only caught up in his glamor. I happen to be a well educated woman who has looked at both sides and made a logical and informed decision that Barack Obama has what it takes to turn this country around after the past 8 years of downward spiralling that has happened.
Please, Senator Clinton, it is time to stop. It is time to support Senator Obama and stop tearing him down. He hasn't done that to you. He isn't willing to stoop to your level, so rise to his. Take this moment before the Pennsylvania primary to decide if you want another 4 years of a Republican Presidency because you didn't know when to stop!
