Carter to Endorse Obama

I'm just baffled by these Democrats who officially remained neutral all this time, only to endorse in the final stretch, especially when everyone's talking about all the reconciliation that needs to be done. Clinton's teetering on a precipice as it is; what in fuck makes Jimmy Carter want to look like the guy who gives her a swift kick over the edge? It positively reeks of disrespect and contempt, for her and the millions of people who voted for her, and it honestly breaks my heart.

It would be upsetting no matter who it was, for a real nail-biter to culminate with such unnecessary ignominy. That it's someone who would have been a historic candidate makes it ever so much worse.

I'm not even angry about it. I'm just desperately sad.
