It is disillusioning. We have wanted to believe as Democrats (those of us who have been one) were superior, wouldn't be fooled by a Bush and yet here we are seeing one state after another vote for the same kind of tricks. Worse is the number of people who are believing those stupid emails that suggest Obama would be some kind of terrorist if he was elected. The people who benefit from this kind of ignorance are the same ones who are doing all they can to destroy our public school system, creating more and more people incapable of using simple logic to make decisions or do research on their own for what is true. It's worrisome. I hope for the best but when she is successful with some of her latest spiels, it worries me about our country and where it's going. There are so many people who still support Bush with torture or his running us into bankruptcy and seemingly not seeing where it's going to end up with these debts accruing. I think anybody not depressed by it is not thinking. I still hope for the best but I don't know... :(

The results from the night are that she is done. She got hammered in NC, and she squeaked out what is basically a tie in my state of Indiana, which is even less impressive for her when you consider the thousands of Indiana republicans who voted for Clinton in order to try to prolong the in-fighting and help McCain. Without that, she would have been beaten, and probably soundly beaten, in Indiana.

There is no path remaining for her to get the nomination. If she still feels that she must continue the campaign, hopefully she will at least try to recover some dignity and run a positive campaign from here on out and stop the negative smears against her own party's nominee.
