Cinton supporters tonight, maybe Republicans in November

Posted by David Postman

Hillary Clinton is expected to speak soon to a capacity crowd at the Pier 30 Event Center in Seattle.
Times reporter Haley Edwards is there and ran into two Seattle men who say while Clinton is their first choice, they might vote Republican in November if Barack Obama ends up with the Democratic nomination.

Jaime Vasconcelos, 31, told Edwards:

“Hillary’s got insider’s knowledge. I think Obama is inspiring but I trust Hillary more. Between Obama and McCain I might consider McCain. I supported him in 2000, I trust him too.”

Henry Lingat, 43, said the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan are the most important issues to him.

“With Hillary I feel faith and protected. She has strength behind her. I don’t know if Obama could handle the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq at once. If Hillary loses the candidacy then I might vote for McCain.”
