Clinton Camp Seeks to Discount The Popular Vote

28 Mar

Hillary Clinton

Seth: Call it what you want. Clinton’s billionaire supporters’ letter to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi was outrageous, hellacious, and contagious! (Yes, I’m channeling Jesse Jackson.) The audacity of these folks – including BET founder Robert Johnson again – is simply amazing. If you are unaware, Nancy Pelosi publicly took the position that superdelegates should not overturn the popular vote when voting at the Democratic National Convention. Hillary’s friends’ letter criticized the Speaker for this and called this an “untenable” position.

The Clinton camp has consistently been trying to put forth the idea that superdelegates, and now even pledged delegates, are free to vote for whomever they choose. This is because she is behind Senator Obama in states won, popular votes and delegates. At this point, it doesn’t look possible for her to catch up in any of these categories.

This kind of “gray-area” politicking that she and her supporters have engaged in continues to divide the Democratic party. It’s also one of the main reasons that voters are flocking to Obama as he attempts to elevate us from this muck. Democrats better wise up and end this primary before the party splits into two separate voting blocks that can’t come together to defeat John McCain.

I read on another blog an idea for Obama to head a third party and run under their banner. Doesn’t seem like a bad idea to me, not at all.

    Indeed. The democrats seems so polarized against each other
    that none seems to really bother with the Republicans. Well, at least that is how it is coming out in the media with the everyday battles being fought by Obama and Hillary.
