    I agree. I think what she did was fantastic. Too bad so many of the right will vilify her now. Her political career is probably over, all for doing the right thing.

    Yes, she probably will be. Do you suppose she will be under consideration as a Veep running mate?

    I had to laugh at the media as NBC was on yesterday about this flag issue and it showed to people that thought it should not be taken down but they picked tow very light skinned if not albino very rotund couple and the guy had a long beard and hat and both wearing t-shirts. Rachel Maddow could not have done better in picking a couple to comment on the flag coming down. How hideous the media has become.

    Removing history because you're a jellyfish is never a good thing. She did not have to cave but chose to.

    Yep they pick the sane people in the crowd. Interesting that my local station sent a black reporter down there to cover it.

    This assumes that she was supportive of keeping the confederate flag there in the first place. Was she?

    The first time they tried to take it down she was supportive of keeping it. Now that someone else made it a scapegoat she caved to the naysayers. In other words she's a typical politician.
