Clinton Supporter explodes after RBC meeting: "God damn the Democrats!"

Saturday's Rules and Bylaws Committee (RBC) meeting put a controversial end to the Florida and Michigan primaries, and arguably the nail in the coffin of Clinton's campaign.

The committee, charged with deciding whether to count delegates from the two primary states that broke party lines by holding their elections in February, essentially ruled that each states' delegates' vote be halved. Naturally, the decision received mixed reviews.

This video of Clinton supporter Harriet Christian's emotional outburst after the ruling has sparked debate across the internet as to whether Christian's views reflect those of other hardcore Clinton supporters.

I pose the question to you: If Obama gets the nomination, will Clinton supporters really be angry enough to vote McCain in the general election?
