I spent the last few days in Seattle (I actually got a hotel room on First Hill and wandered around downtown, shopping and doing things only available in a big city). Twice I was accosted by activists who asked me if "I wanted to help Bush out of office." I should have asked what group they represented. To the first, I replied, "No. I plan to vote for him in November". Her big smile fell and she turned to the next person on the sidewalk. I saw the second one coming (the "Loyal Democrat" button on his shirt gave away what he was all about, so I started shaking my head as I got closer. I also told him that I was voting for Bush in November. I thought for a minute he was going to argue with me, but he let it go.
I don't recall ever seeing such organized hatred of Clinton during his term in office.
