Obama Ordered to Support Clinton

I wanted to link to this story because it further illustrates a point I made a couple of days ago. Democrats take substantively damaging positions toward those they claim to support and then trot out anyone they can find in their party to defend them. In this case, Hillary made an obviously racist comment and who do we see defending her? A black man in the party. Democrats' policies on war are detrimental to the military, and who do we see defending them? A veteran in their party. If anything showed a bankruptcy in their views, this would be it. It's all about image to these people, and it needs to be about action and principles--something the Democrats have had neither of for many years now.
