"I think at the end of the day, you won't be loyal to Hillary if you are not loyal to Obama."

Just because it's said doesn't make it so...Yet the title of this thread is what was stated by Columbus Mayor Coleman who has been an Obama supporter since the beginning as reported by today's Cleveland Plain Dealer.
"I think that once Hillary Clinton gets up there and has her speech, she'll put all this to rest," said Michael Coleman, the mayor of Columbus and a longtime Obama backer, chatting outside the hotel. "I think at the end of the day, you won't be loyal to Hillary if you are not loyal to Obama."

Evidently he didn't get the message that some of Clinton's supporters realize exactly what she is doing, and the reasons why and it has not changed how they feel about Obama.

Questioning their loyalty to her based on their support of Obama has been suggested, some buy it, some don't. If you look at this most recent poll more Clinton supporters are stating they will not support Obama now as opposed to the end of June. What else was interesting is what was stated by a Clinton delegate:

Steve Lieber of University Heights is one of only two Clinton delegates from the 11th Congressional District, which includes the city's East Side and eastern suburbs and whose voters overwhelming supported Obama in Ohio's May primary.

"I want Clinton to be honored and respected, and a roll call is a way to honor her," he said. "But I don't know that we will be satisfied."

Another unfortunate thing that the Columbus mayor said. Luckily living in Westerville, he isn't my mayor, but close. He drives me nuts!
