Spoilt Sections of The Democrats

There are certain sections of the Democrat party, die hard Clinton supporters, who cannot accept that their candidate did not win the nomination for presidential candidate.

They are now, much like spoiled children, stamping their feet and vowing revenge upon Obama and the party; they threaten to vote Republican on 5 November.

The party would be better off without these people.
