Party unity, my @$$

That is what the PUMA stands for that was assembled by Hillary supporters. According to this report from Scripps Howard news service that's exactly what they still think today, and it could prove to be a precursor of things to come in Denver:

(HT to Captain Ed)

A massive e-mail and Internet campaign is under way aimed at derailing the nomination of Barack Obama and making Hillary Clinton the party’s standard bearer next week at the Democratic National Convention in Denver.

“It’s downright nasty,” said Memphis, Tenn., superdelegate and city council member Myron Lowery, who has shared dozens of the messages he’s received with The (Memphis) Commercial Appeal newspaper.

“I think it’s divisive for the ‘Support Hillary’ campaign to continue at this time. She made the decision to fully support Mr. Obama,” said Lowery, who initially supported Clinton but later switched his allegiance to Obama. “I don’t know why they’re not taking their cue from Hillary and falling in line.”

Watch it, bub. You don't tell the PUMA's what to do. You don't tell them to get in line. That sort of counterattack is only going to infuriate them more. Speaking of raising the ire, it looks like their using tactics that our side has been accused of (which we haven't done at all):

Most of the messages Lowery has received from across the country come from Hillary supporters making the case that she won more voters’ votes in the primaries, she won bigger states, that Obama won states that won’t vote Democratic in November, and that she is the only “electable” Democrat.

“I think it’s a terrible tactic,” said Memphis delegate, Baptist minister and Shelby County, Tenn., Democratic Party Chairman Keith Norman. “We had hoped that this kind of politics, especially from within the party, would have been abandoned.”

A pledged Obama delegate, Norman noted that some of the attacks are overtly racist and that in one instance Obama was likened to “the Anti-Christ.”

“We have a historic moment that we need to grasp and we need to move forward as a unified party,” he said.

This is what happens when you tick off a group of very angry women; women who believe (and possibly rightly so) that Hillary was mistreated during the primaries. Let's face it, folks, she was thrown under the MSM's bus the moment Obama threw his hat into the ring. Her supporters aren't happy at all with the Democrat party. We were already hearing rumors popping that some of the SuperDs were starting to have a sort of "buyer's remorse" with Obama.

However this continues to go, it's clear that the Hillary supporters aren't going to go quietly into the night. They're going to go to the wall for Hillary because they believe she's the better candidate. That might be true, but it's also clear to us that these women are going to continue to make their case, and they may be the only ones standing in the way of the Democrat party and the cliff the party is heading for.
