There is no doubt this contest is hurtful to the Democratic Party. But it might actually be helpful toward bringing Americans together. I know that sounds odd. But I think that this is actually helping bring Republicans and Democrats together. Let me give you three examples ...
1. I personally find myself respecting Hillary more than ever in the past. My guess is, other conservatives feel the same way. Sure, she may be a socialist, but she is at least tough and doesn't give up. It's hard to admit, but I find myself having this grudging respect for her. Is this the Hillary that liberals have always admired -- but I was blind to because of philosophical differences?
2. Just as I may have a new-found respect for Hillary, Obama supporters are finally seeing the real Bill Clinton. Yes -- he's slimy. That's what we've been telling you guys for decades now!
3. A close friend of mine (who also happens to be a liberal) is now a frequent TH.com reader. Why? She's supporting Hillary, and for the first time ever, she and I see eye to eye on things like the liberal media. She has always viewed herself as a liberal, but now she is seeing first-hand just how quixotic and dangerous the Obama supporters are.
Who knows how long it will last, but I think these are positive developments ...
