Hillary Clinton cannot Bring Herself to Congratulate Barack Obama on Wins

Bad form.

On Tuesday in El Paso, hours after Virginia had been called for Obama, she stuck to her “Texas campaign kickoff” message and did not stray from an energetic, Lone Star-themed stump speech. She did mention Obama by name, only to chide his health care plan.

On Saturday night in Richmond, Virginia, Clinton spoke to a crowd of thousands at the state’s annual Jefferson-Jackson dinner, but she ignored Obama’s quartet of blowout primary and caucus wins that day as well (Obama also won the Maine caucuses the next day).

The courtesy of conceding a primary or caucus loss — and then congratulating your opponent — is by no means required. But it has become standard practice during campaign season.

Clinton is banking on Texas and Ohio but as Wapo reports the Clinton coalition is showing "cracks" and they are saying it marks a turning point.

The Democrats have a big problem, they have a woman that tends to hide behind her husbands coattails and hangs ON to her rivals coattails but cannot stand on her own, which is one of the reasons I believe she has lost her lead in the race for the Democratic nomination.

The second major problem for Democratic supporters, is that their alternative, Barack Obama, although he speaks well and tends to draw out a good crowd, is too inexperienced to run a country.

With those two pathetic choices for Democratic supporters, is it any wonder they remain bitter angry people?
