I've been receiving hate filled emails, comments and phone calls from Barack Obama supporters who believe I am supporting Hillary Clinton. I've been called a whore, a traitor, told I'd sold my soul, etc. They are over the top and, worse, from friends and others I know. I wonder if they have actually listened to Sen. Obama. His message has been one of change; change from the politics of old, the politics of division, this exact kind of behavior.
Do these people really believe in Obama's message? It doesn't appear so. There's a serious disconnect. Vilifying and condemning someone for helping another campaign (especially after also helping yours) or for supporting their opponent isn't aiding their cause. They will completely alienate those who remain undecided because their actions so contradict their candidate's message. This is going to cost them votes.
