Here We Go!
One thing that really irks me about primary elections is, not so much candidates from the same party running each other down, but how they usually kiss and make up after the primary election. So let's see how ugly it gets between the two main contenders in the Democratic Primary for Governor of California.
This happens all the time. I'm not pointing fingers at other political parties, either, since even the Libertarian Party has at least a few individuals and candidates that put out hit pieces on their opponents, usually right up close to the nominating convention.
As much as I dislike Senator John McCain, I had to respect the fact that he didn't like George Bush and went against the normal tendency of a losing candidate after he'd lost the Republican nomination:
He didn't turn around, kiss and make up and endorse the guy who he'd been running down just the day before. He kept on hating him, despite efforts by the Republican establishment to smooth over their "problems".
Let's see what happens with this race in the Democratic Primary. Assuming the hostilities elevate and it gets really ugly, I'd almost be willing to bet money that whoever loses will turn around the next day, praise the victor and throw his support behind him, no matter how incompetent the loser said the winner was just the day before.
I don't know whether to laugh or throw up when I see that spectacle played out.
