Obama supporters should follow his lead

Isn't that obvious? If you support Obama, if you believe in the change he's so eloquently advocated, you do what the man says. What is the essence of the CHANGE Obama is talking about for the last couple of months? To seek common ground and solve real problems.

So if you really are an Obama supporter, please:
  • Stop Clinton hate. If common ground is what we are after, there are little but common ground between the two liberal democrats.
  • Stop calling for Clinton to quit. Obama said that Clinton has every right to continue her campaign.
  • Stop playing the old politics. Did Clinton really want Obama assassinated like RFK? Are you kidding?
  • Rein in your imagination. Did Clinton manufacture her tears in New Hampshire? Did she arrange to have people raise "Wash my shirt" signs? Did she intentionally lie about sniper fire in Bosnia? Obama would take her words and so should you.
I have no problem voting for Obama if Clinton cannot make the nomination. The man wants almost exactly the same things I'm hoping for -- except for his supporters. They rally behind his call for unity while playing the same divisive politics in his name. How curious!

It just came to light that Obama had to distance himself with yet another of his supporters -- the Rev. Michael Pfleger -- who mocked Clinton's as a racist. Obama was right to be disappointed. But the more telling fact is: If Obama cannot really influence his supporters, how is he gonna lead the nation?
