Is Party Unity a Pipe Dream?

I decided to watch Hillary’s speech this afternoon via her website’s live stream. Interestingly, the stream also came with a uStream chatbox where registered Clinton supporters could chat about the speech. From what I read there I realized that while it may not be a pipe dream, we have a tough row to hoe.

Below the fold is a snippit of the live chat that is still ongoing at HillaryClinton.com.

10:07 lateniter : we are ready for a black president
10:07 Indyvote333 : Not me
10:07 jseliskar : No cause they know better
10:07 LiquidFitness : people just judge PERIOD

10:07 Reality_Bites : the problem is ignorant people like jseliskar…who think they can talk up every unlrelated point as proof that he can not run this country
10:07 Indyvote333 : I don’t care about color
10:07 PDavis : we are ready but not this one, too inexperienced

10:07 lateniter : we are still prejudice
10:07 Reality_Bites : when he has already shown..buy the way he has run his campaign..that he can run this country

10:08 PDavis : he doesn’t speak near as well without a teleprompter
10:09 OmegaJH : This is pointless idk why you guys think that sitting in here ad convince whos better and who you should vote for is pointless. Get a life, wait till voteing day, then do it.
