The DNC Caves on Florida and Michigan

Monique Chartier

Just in time for the convention, but only after all the Democrat state primaries are over and

with some adjustments in Obama's favor

Following upon the revelation that Senator Hillary Clinton never made Senator Barack Obama's vice-presidential short list, isn't this a little offensive to Senator Clinton and her supporters, not to mention generally undemocratic? "Okay, you're back in. But only now that the primaries are over and what's-her-name can't pick up any momentum from them, plus we've artificially skewed the results."

Further, hasn't the DNC opened the door to rampant lawlessness during the next Democrat state primary season [what's that? the Rhode Island Democrat primary has already been scheduled for next September? * ] by failing to stick by its sanctions and their deterrent effect to the end?

* Strictly an illustrative joke; Rhode Island's next Dem presidential primary has not yet been scheduled.

The Clinton team has been making demands as if Hillary had won the nomination. Talk about raging entitlement.
Bill doesn't consider it the Democratic Party anymore. He considers it the Clinton Party.

Geez,rhody-for a liberal you don't know sh*t-it's been the Clinton party since 1992 when they brought in their Arkancide crew and the NY lowlifes

In Hillary's mind, she did. Don't be surprised if she upstages Obama.

Will is absolutely correct. Hillary WILL upstage the Obamas.

I get the impression Hillary's made her peace with the whole thing, even if people claiming to act on her behalf haven't.
Bill (and the crew around him) seems like the bigger concern.

If Hillary does upstage Obama, you won't be able to hear the applause from the Clinton-supporting RI delegation. Obama's people couldn't have seated them any further from the podium!

I guess they couldn't put the RI delegation in the concourse for fire safety reasons!

So now if you're a state Democratic chairman and you see all the press that New Hampshire gets by being the first one to the polls, what keeps you from scheduling your primary before New Hampshire? Before Iowa? There's no penalty for it. I'd do it.
