Must See Reality Tv

So I've definitely reached the over 25 mark, I've been tuning into The Democratic National Convention all week. I feel like I've been at an adult pep rally the entire time. I don't know if any of you all caught it yesterday, but after Hillary's speech the media took a turn for the worse. Not the media exactly, but the delegate they interviewed. The media interviewed a black woman maybe in her late 30s early 40s. The lady was very passionate about Hillary Clinton, to the point of holding back tears and a cracking voice. Now I'm all for people being passionate about their beliefs, but the fuckery which followed took the cake. The lady spoke on how she truly believed that Hillary's speech on "unity" was exactly the speech of a President. This delegate said that she wouldn't vote for McCain, but to make it simple, she hasn't made a connection to Obama. She said she saw in Hillary what her potential future could be (so much for goals). When asked if she would vote for Obama in November, she said "I may be faced with with something I don't wanna have to deal with". She was basically referring to the point that she may not vote. Can I say IGNORANT, IGNORANT, IGNORANT!!! This interview spoke on sooo many levels. The speech by Clinton was on UNITY, uniting the party, and encouraging her followers to vote for Obama. I never heard her say to not vote. The attitude of this delegate is one that the Democratic party can do without. And for her to mention slightly that "we" fought for the right to vote, meant she knows that her future actions are wrong. I believe that everyone has a right to their own opinion, but doing the right thing  should always override an opinion? Three words for the delegate GET OVER IT. Its been over 7 weeks since Barack has had the nomination, there was plenty of time for her to take hold of her emotions, instead of having a hissy fit.
