I find the Clinton article to be so self-congratulatory and smarmy I'm about to vomit.

Yes. Let's all laud the woman who effectively eviscerated the Democrats' moral high ground in exchange for personal political gain.

I've no intention of funding her ability to pursue her agenda further.

But I'm happy to support Obama.
