Noticed that Air America has turned into the ANTI Hillary station. I used to listen all during the day and I'v noticed that Just about everyone except Rachel Madow has turned there whole show into talking about how bad Bill and Hillary are? Anyone else notice or is it just me

Yes, it's been that way for quite awhile. Stephanie Miller, who is not employed by Air America but is carried on many AA stations is also very critical of the Clintons.

Barker's wife is the daughter of the FFRF founder and is now the co-president with Barker. Her brother is my business partner.

I believe that's the real cover art, not a photochop. Am I right?

What makes you think it's ideology and not just a general lack of appeal? Senator Clinton's voting record is, as I've pointed out here many times, practically indistinguishable from Senator Obama's.

It fits my agenda less.

Actually it's the Clintons' campaign tactics they abhor.

I never read dailykos. On Air America, which I listen to frequently (I listen to right wing radio with about equal frequency - can't listen to music in the car - too boring to me), it's definitely the Clintons' tactics which have created so much opposition.

Then the dailykos people are either lying or misinformed.

Is it really surprising that in the middle of a very heated fight for the nomination many people have taken sides? I'd guess that most of this anti-Clinton stuff on liberal talk shows is a natural and temporary polarization from people rooting for Obama.

My view, as a nonpartisan who used to be a strong Democrat, is that a lot of Democrats are upset with Clinton because her behavior implies a willingness to sacrifice the health of the party as long as it insures her nomination. Certainly my wife feels this way. Before the campaign she preferred Obama to Clinton <i>slightly</i>, mostly because of his charisma. Now she really despises Clinton because of her tactics.

Yup, I think there's a lot of that going around.

That assumes that votes are the only way in this particular case to assess ideology.


How many votes have they both participated in, and in how many of those votes where they voted similarly were they in alignment with the overwhelming majority of the Democrat party?

I simply do not think there have been enough bellwether votes shared by these two to determine ideological differences.
