Unity Begins at Home

There are outliers. I have heard a few people say that they'll throw a fit if Obama loses the nomination. Some have calmly just said they'd withdraw support for Democrats. But the people supporting Democrats today largely agree that we don't want McCain to be president.

Why wait until we have a nominee to beat on John McCain? I, for one, don't want to spend the next few months worried about who is going to be the nominee. I will be bitterly disappointed if Obama doesn't win, but I'm confident he will get the pledged delegates and that the superdelegates will support that.

I'll start thinking more about why I don't want McCain to be president. It's negative, but it beats focusing on some of the stomach-turning turns of the last few weeks.

I'm not going to forget supporting Obama. I'm clicking that "donate" link on the website again. I'm going to, as Maggie did this time around, try to get over my telephone aversion and make some phone calls as the next round of primaries approach.

Even though I believe this primary fight can hurt Democratic chances in November, we'll be better off if we think about how it could help us. It's not all bad.

Really, people. Do we want to lose this one, or what?
