Why I'm glad Obama won...

Because I couldn't handle the McCain-Clinton general election lovefest. From McCain's official campaign site (emphasis mine):

Senator Clinton has really grown on us over here in Crystal City over the past few months. She ran an impressive campaign, and proved herself to be an impressive candidate and as John McCain has said, inspired a generation of women.

[...]

Senator Clinton also didn't mention John McCain once during her speech. This came as something of a surprise over here, and a pleasant one at that. But it's clear that John McCain and Hillary Clinton respect each other -- and there is a genuine affection for her here at McCain HQ. During her speech there was no small amount of pleading with the TV: 'Don't do it, you can still win!'

I understand that McCain is trying to build bridges with disgruntled Hillary voters, but what's the use of doing that if it comes at the expense further alienating the people who are the most likely to donate to and volunteer for his campaign?

Exit question: Who must conservatives lobby to make sure all early GOP primaries are closed primaries?
