You know the time is right to take control, we gotta take offense against the status quo

Catawa is my favorite bleeding heart liberal.
A person joins a party because a presumed shared set of beliefs, the party (ie the people) chose candidates on the presumption that the candidate shares enough similar beliefs to be a useful member of the team, and as a member of the team, they are expected to follow certain basic codes. One of those codes is to keep supporting the team when the fans voted for the other guy as MVP.
Did the Red Queen endorse McCain just because her attempts to play the race card in the 2008 primaries were trumped by Obama's natural joker in the Race Game? No. Hillary went out and helped, and the Messiah carefully put her out in plain sight as Secretary of State where he could keep an eye on her.
Refusing to support your rival in the primary in a childish fit of pique knowing that such churlishness might easily allow the opposing team to win the game is dispicable and cowardly.
I'm all for crazy loons if they'll:
Protect the unborn.
Close the damn borders and send the invaders home.
That's why the GOP is finding it's hand picked candidates getting pushed out the door and American candidates are replacing them on the ballots.
When the indivdual chooses to join a group, he assumes responsibilities and duties as a member of that group. Ain't one damn thing in libertarianism that relieves the individual of the responsibility to fulfill formal and implied obligations. If Castle wanted to abandon the Republicans in Delaware, there were two times when it was appropriate to do so, when his choice would not harm people he allowed to rely on his behavior. When he filed his candidacy for the Senate primary, and when the November election was over.
Castle was the little child who ran home crying when the short-stop got the ball to first base before he did. The GOP should be glad that wimpy ass lost. The Americans certainly are.
Besides, who was the last Secretary of State the earned any respect? Kissinger?
