Why the Republicans suddenly love Hillary Clinton

Frankly, that McCain is “reaching out” to Hillary Clinton supporters is nothing more than a disingenuous attempt to win a block of votes so they can preserve the status quo.  The Republicans will do and say anything to get a vote.  Remember that!

The Republicans are great at “promises, promises” but deliver little to the constituencies they try to own.  Consider the last 8 years of the Bush administration.  What can Christian evangelicals hang their hats on for all their Republican support?  What could the Republicans possibly offer a block of former Hillary Clinton supporters in exchange for their support?  How about giving up their right to choice? 

The bottom line is the Republicans are “fair weather friends” to the constituencies they rally support from.  Oh, they’ll tell you want to hear when they want your vote but they aren’t committed to the relationship.

Michele Obama hit the nail on the head last night when she observed that the Republicans motivate people by fear (he’s not ready, he doesn’t have the experience, he’s not tough enough, he’s not old enough) whereas the Democrats offer hope for change from the present status quo.  The Republicans–supported by narrow special interests whose trust they continually betray–are interested in preserving the status quo they’ve created rather than realizing change is essential.

There is a clear choice between Barack Obama and the Democratic Party and John McCain and the Republican Party.  If you like the status quo, vote for John McCain.  If you don’t like the status quo, vote for Barack Obama.  It’s that simple.
