My emails and views on Sen. Clinton

In response to the emails I've forwarded recently, one friend thought I should not send out "unsubstaniated and uncredited" emails, or at least should add some of my own commentary. Regarding "unsubstantiated", I was forwarding various peoples' personal opinions so I don't think there's need for substantiation. As for identifying the authors of these emails, I see the point, but no can do. There's no upside for most of my friends to having their names appear in my emails and on my blog and even if some were willing to let me use their names, I don't have time to ask each person. These are just various friends of mine, none with any formal affiliation with any particular campaign (that I'm aware of). Finally, as for commentary -- guilty as charged. I was in South Africa yesterday and just arrived home this morning, so I didn't have much time to add my usual commentary.
Another friend asked my why I "dislike Hillary so much." I don't at all. As I've said many times before, I think she's been an excellent Senator and would be a very good President, so if she wins the Democratic nomination, it will be a no-brainer for me to support her vs. any of the Republicans -- just not nearly as enthusiastically as if Sen. Obama's the nominee. The only wild card would be if Bloomberg runs -- I think I'd support him over her, unless I thought he had no chance to win.
