This is juicy, payback time... Anybody who believes the intra-party battle is just temporary is delusional.

Support of Obama costs MarDee Xifaras her spot on Democratic National Committee

Attorney Margaret “MarDee” Xifaras has been ousted after 28 years from the state’s delegation to the Democratic National Committee by what one supporter describes as “hard-core Hillary feminists” upset with her endorsement of Sen. Barack Obama for president in a state that went for Sen. Clinton.
...
After cheerfully saying, “I’m still standing,” Mrs. Xifaras told The Standard-Times, “It was interesting to watch because there was a fair amount of disconcert from friends, partly female friends, that I had chosen to support Obama.”
Susan Thomson, who until recently was the state party’s executive director, campaigned to replace Mrs. Xifaras, and won a four-year term with the heavy majority of the female vote.
...
“Let me put it this way,” he said. “Among the Clinton supporters there was a sort of unwritten word that went out that said we elect our own, and the collateral damage on that was we don’t vote Xifaras.”
He said that state Senate President Therese Murray, D-Plymouth, and former Sen. Lois G. Pines were at the meeting and “have been very outspoken, each of them, about women who have not been supporting Hillary Clinton.”

Freedom of Religion NOT Freedom from Religion

Is they don't forget it, and I am not certain they actually understand the word forgive.


"Those who expect to reap the blessings of freedom must, like men, undergo the fatigue of supporting it."
-Thomas Paine: The American Crisis, No. 4, 1777

in that area in MA and know how they act. It's not even exclusive to women only, it's the same with Obama for minorities and also for different European ethnicities in the area. It happens every year there are elections with the branded "white person" running against an ethnic European or minority, everyone gets upset if you are not backing the ethnic guy who represents the people of the south coast, so they'll go out of their way to harass you, although, not many of the citizens are even registered to vote.

Before you get to heaven, you must go through hell, which in my case is the People's Republic of Massachusetts.
