Write Sen. Clinton today!

Let me be clear. I did not vote for Clinton in the primaries. I had and have no desire to see her in the White House. I do feel, however, that she is essential to this campaign. Here is the letter I sent to her via her Senate website:
Senator Clinton-

I write to you to ask that you address your former supporters directly and let them know in no uncertain terms that they should vote for Barack Obama. I find it appalling that so many of your supporters are willing to vote for John McCain simply because he has chosen Sarah Palin as a running mate. I beg of you to address this issue directly, forcefully and, most importantly, publicly.

I know that you are disappointed for failing to secure the Democratic nomination, but you must put aside your hurt feelings and deal with the PUMAs and others who feel so disenfranchised that they are willing to sacrifice our nation’s future to 4 more years of disastrous Republican leadership. Set aside your ambition and speak to these women. Help them to see that Obama is a far superior candidate to McCain and Palin. Address Palin’s lies and distortions. Reach out to your supporters and enlighten them.

If you actually intend to support Barack Obama’s bid for the White House, you must convince your former supporters that to vote for McCain/Palin is to ensure 4 more years of Bush. Four more years of lies and deceit and idiotic frat-boy politics. You must, absolutely must, fight Sarah Palin with every fiber of your being. Be the leader your supporters believe you are. Prove your detractors wrong. Do the right thing. TO NOT DO SO WILL BE A SUPREME ACT OF COWARDICE.

I encourage you to do the same. Tell Senator Clinton how important you believe her support will be in this campaign. For that matter, write and tell Obama the same thing. Tell everyone you know to look past Palin's ovaries and see the real woman that will only bring 4 more years of Republican idiocy. Be a voice for your friends, your school, your family. Speak now or forever hold your peace.
