A friend of mine was wondering why on earth I would run an ad for Hillary Clinton on the sidebar of my blog if I wasn't a fan. She thought I was going against my principles. I explained that in a primary race I wouldn't support Hillary, but if she were to be the Democrat's primary winner that I would support her in the presidential race. I'm not sure if I made myself clear, but I just came across something from Daily Kos that describes my views about triangulating Dems and how they relate to the big picture:
We need more Dems willing to fight for us in the Congress. And that is what Election 2006 will be about. Personally, in the primaries, I will support the Dems who will fight for our ideals and our well being. I am a Big Tent Dem, and I will support almost all the Dems in November, but in the primaries, I fight for the principles of the Democratic Party.
That's it in a nutshell. So, Nancy, if you're reading this, I hope that makes sense. I'm not adamantly opposed to Hillary, I just prefer someone who would be more progressive, along with someone who would have voted against the invasion of Iraq.
