On Monday, I wrote a piece for Salon about the anger felt by Hillary Clinton supporters that's making it hard for them to get in line behind Barack Obama. In it, I concluded that with time, tempers would cool, and that many of Clinton's liberal and politically devoted supporters would find a way to their own excitement about Obama's candidacy. Many of these angry Clinton supporters disagreed with me, and let me know how wrong I was in hundreds of letters of protest.
