During the 2008 Democratic Primaries if someone observed the goings on from a non Obamamania/ Obama fever standpoint, one can see that Senator Hillary Clinton was being pressured by certain sections of the media to do and say particular things.

After losing the Democratic Iowa Primary to Senator Barack Obama, she was being pressured to quit the quest for the White House.

When a substantial amount of delegates and Super Delegates kept leaping to Senator Obamaís side and it seemed that Senator Hillary Clintonís delegate count was not gaining much momentum, she was being pressured to quit and encourage her delegates and supporters to support Senator Obama.

And on the night of August 26th 2008 at the Democratic National Convention, once again as I watched the New York senator give her speech, a speech that was filled with all the things a Senator Obama supporter was delighted to hear, again there seemed to be a particular amount of that invisible presence of pressure.

For Senator Hillary Clinton verbally not only expressed her support for Mr. Obama, but urged her supporters to back him too. In the end, it seemed as though Senator Hillary Clinton said all the things members of the media and a handful of her own supporters wanted her to say.

Pressure, you say? There is a certain level of pressure involved when it comes to the matter of saying all the things people want to hear for the sake of oneís political party.

Thatís what the senator from New York did, she said the right things at the right time in order to save the Democratic party.

Hi Judy

This is most definitely thought provoking. Even a benighted Third Worlder such as I got the very distinct impression that the Clintons had somehow been 'got to'. And coerced into throwing in the towel. Just as well .

From our Liliputian perspective, anything and everything about the US is gargantuan . Even Brobdignag doesn't come close.

The only way the likes of us can survive and avoid being crushed ( like so many ants under a jackboot ) is to : steer clear , lie low -keeping perfectly still. But if cornered just keep genuflecting saying : 'yes sir , yes sir , three bags full sir' . And hope for the best.

Hi RJKT, and thanks. After listening to Bill Clinton's speech the other night, I guess he also said all the things Senator Obama's supporters and the media wanted him to say.
