As of now (7:05 PST), Hillary is laying a thumping on Obama in WV: 65-28%.
Since the IN and NC primaries, there has been a coronation of Obama as the Democratic nominee. Obama has planned his acceptance speech/party on May 20th. The media and blogger boiz have essentially ruled Hillary Clinton completely out of the race. Obama, as the “presumed nominee” outspent Hillary in WV and had more staff than she did. The Obama super delegates have ruled Hillary out of the race. But Hillary won. And she won big.
Tonight was a massive repudiation of the MSM, the Obama [blogger] boys, and many of Obama’s Super-Ds trying to push Hillary from the race. The Democratic leadership should pay attention. This has ramifications for November on more than just the presidential election. We don’t want a candidate forced on us and we don’t want our brothers and sisters in FL and MI to be disenfranchised.
My last vote in California is for the June 3rd primary. I am a big fan of my representative, Anna Eshoo, but on the Democratic ballot I have at home, I’m voting “other” instead of Eshoo. Not for her support of Obama, but for her silence on FL and MI and the gross unfairness of this primary. For not sticking up for me when I’m called a racist. For staying silent as a caring, compassionate woman is torn to shreds by the media and Obama’s online supporters. I have no intention of voting GOP in the fall. But if I am voting against Eshoo in a primary (after supporting her with time and money in the past), then I imagine there are others who are deeply disappointed in the Democratic Party. Democratic leaders should pay attention to today’s massive repudiation of those trying to force Hillary out.
