There will be a Democratic debate tonight on CNN at 8pm ET. It will be held at the University of Nevada and hosted by Wolf Blitzer. Folks, if this even goes down anything like the last debate, where everyone plays a game of gang-up-on-Hillary, then I suggest we don't even watch it. What we suggest you do is, watch the first 5 minutes of the debate. Go into it with an open mind. But if you hear one attack on Hillary, whether by Wolf Blitzer or by her opponents, the thing to do is just turn off the television.
We need to hold CNN accountable if they let this turn into yet another Hillary Clinton smear campaign. If this in fact goes down the way I suspect it will, then we need to boycott all advertisers that will be marketing during the debate, and we certainly don't need to hear anymore of the opposition's rhetoric. I repeat, if this turns into yet another smear campaign, then boycott CNN's advertisers. This hits them right in the pocketbook. If we lived in a perfect world, everyone would see Hillary Clinton as our only hope, and instead of attacking her, they'd be praising her for politically prowess. But unfortunately we live in a world where greed and ignorance trumps intellectual honesty, and we need to act accordingly.
