Can I hide out here for a while?

My wife and I are both 90%+ sure that we will vote for Hillary in the SC primary (and remember that it was SC that basically propelled Obama to the 2008 nomination).

I got a notice the other day that I have been barred from the Bernie Sanders forum.
My crime?
I posted a reply in a thread which I didn't even realize was in the Sanders forum about a ridiculous and misleading post. The title said that more Democrats were now supporting Sanders than Clinton, but the body of the text asserted that Clinton would lose the election if nominated. I replied that the post was both misleading and ridiculous. Not a comment that really had anything to do with which candidate I supported or why.
While I could appeal and have this action rescinded, I decided to put the group leader on my ignore list and stay away from such a narrow-minded and thin-skinned environment.
I am a huge fan of Bernie's, and think he is possibly the best current member of the US Senate. I can't support him in the primary because I think Clinton will likely win the general election while I am afraid Sanders would lose. And, I think Clinton would be best able to carry on effectively advancing a liberal agenda.
I think the next election, with its implications for Supreme Court appointments, campaign financing and voter suppression may be a major turning point in our history. Following 8 years of Obama with 8 more of a Democratic President should destroy the very real threat of the Tea Party fanatics and give us a progressive government and a sane opposition party.
I feel confidant that we will all come together behind our party's candidate when the primary is over - the stakes are too high not to win this one.

Tribute for Emanuel AME?

I don't know if this is possible under the rules, but listening to the grieving families forgiving that 21 year old monster and not calling for revenge and retribution had a profound effect on me. I think it would be very appropriate, if possible, to consider this historic church (and by reference its membership) for the next Nobel Peace Prize.
