Molly Ivins Is My New Hero...

.... at least for today. Just read her take on Hillary Clinton and the current state of the Democratic party. No further comment necessary, save to say that I agree with her 110%, and will be supporting an Independent candidate if Senator Clinton takes the Democratic nomination. I will not suffer through another Kerry-esque campaign.

Grassroots Democrats need to tell Democratic leadership that we're not simply going to run with whomever is served up as the best choice, as we did in the past. This time, I want to support a candidate who believes what I believe. I want to support a candidate who stands a chance to win, because they actually have a firm, defensible platform.

Don't get me wrong. I like Hillary Clinton. I think she has served as a VERY strong member of the U.S. Senate. And I think she could continue to galvanize the Democratic party behind a solid candidate. But she has proven to me over and over again that she cannot be that candidate, and that she is not capable of winning.

And for the time being, I want to support THIS candidate.
