Both candidates [Obama and Clinton] are targeting superdelegates in aggressive lobbying campaigns.
Carol Ann Campbell, a superdelegate from Philadelphia, which votes April 22, played for a reporter a recent voice mail from Michelle Obama.
“Hi, Carol, this is Michelle Obama. I’m the wife of Barack Obama, who is running for president. Just reaching out to see where you stand on this presidential race, and obviously we want your public support of Barack.”
Campbell said in an interview she was “somewhat” leaning toward Hillary Clinton. ”Not so much because of her,” she said, “but because of her husband. A brilliant man.”
What. The. Fuck? How can anyone say something that stupid? You can’t vote for someone based on how much you like their husband, how cute you think he/she is, or—god forbid—on how nice their shoes are. *head-desk*
On another note:
Hello!? The United States has GOT to do something about this insane anyone-and-their-crazy-grandma-can-get-a-gun thing. How many deaths will it take for people to understand that? Honestly, your personal right to protect yourself would work so much better if THERE WERE NO GUNS OUT THERE in the wrong hands, to begin with. How selfish can people get?
Take a look at what the U.N. wants and tell me it doesn’t make sense:
- Reduce the number of guns in private hands that include mandating a maximum one-gun-per-person rule;
- A ban on possession of handguns by anyone other than government officials and target shooters who would be forced to store their weapons at shooting ranges;
- Worldwide licensing of firearms registered in a vast U.N. computer bank.
