Act Now: Sign Hillary’s Petition to DNC, Pass It On!

Immediate Action: Sign Hillary’s petition to the DNC to seat FL and MI delegates. Time and quantity of signatures are of the essence.

This is the note I included to the DNC along with my signature on the petition:

“Count the votes of the voting voters to reflect how they voted! Can I say it more simply? One person, one vote.”

Pass it on!

    I will like my vote to be counted. Please seat the delegates from Florida. this is not a democracy you are taking away Clinton nomination. I cannot believe. If this happen, i am voting Mackain 2008 all the way. I would never cast my vote to obama at all. I do not think so he has the experience and does not convinced me

    Thanks,

    Hillary 2008 You are the best do not give up fight for what you believe

    To the DNC: 5/16/08 7:30pm EST
    It is absolutely imperative that you count every single vote from the MI and FL primaries. Hillary Clinton is winning ALL the swing states by huge margins. She won ALL the counties in WVA, AR and nearly ALL the counties in TN, OH, PA, FL, OK. In addition, Hillary is winning by huge margins the democratic base – women, hispanic, rural, Reagan democrats along with several other demographics.

    Hillary Clinton is the MOST qualified candidate our courtry has ever seen and if she is not on the TOP of the ticket in Nov. I will leave the Democratic Party after 30 years as a member.

    HILLARY CLINTON, MI AND FL – ABSOLUTELY MUST BE COUNTED.

    Well, I’m in Florida, didn’t vote because the DNC told us it wouldn’t count, but would have voted for Hillary back then.

    The thing is, since then, I’ve come to know Senator Obama, hear his message and believe he’s the best person for the Democratic party and the best person to become President next year.

    The fact that, (despite agreeing with the DNC’s ruling), Hillary that night was here in Florida claiming ‘victory’ and publicly started the campaign to have FL and MI delegates seated, to me seemed ridiculous.

    I for one trust the rest of the country to make an informed decision and I’m happy with the decisions they’ve made over the last 5 months, and would have been even if Hillary was in Obama’s current position.

    But as this is here to petition the DNC to allow Floridians and whatever the term is for residents of Michigan to vote, I say great! And maybe there are a few other Floridians around who like me didn’t vote or did and have now switched as a result of getting to know Obama better.

    I came to this country USA 20 years ago. Against the odd I learned English. I have my associate degree in education toward to my bachelor degree to be a Spanish teacher. I am a current student. I am an American citizen.

    I am writing you because Hillary Clinton and I have much in common. We fight in what we believe is right. We fight against the odd.

    Hillary’s proven ability to win blue-collar and working-class votes like me. Also she will be stronger nominee against Sen McCain. Senator Obama has not yet proven that he can win the key states, nor has he proven that he can win the votes of blue-collar worker.

    United Stated of America has 50 states and it should be a convention of 50 states delegations. Hillary won significan victoria on both Florida and Michigan and the delegations of those states ought to be seated.

    Please help Hillary now. Do it for me and my two kids.

  6. Emily Blair-Nix says:

    I am a recent college graduate, preparing to begin my Masters studies. My own parents, like so many middle class folks, have lost much of their savings to put me through college. I have so many college friends that are behind Hillary just like me. She is without a doubt the stronger candidate to beat John McCain in November. If the Michigan and Florida delegates are unseated, and those who voted are disenfranchised, what a horrible message! Floridians still feel like they got the shaft in 2000, and we all know how that one turned out. Hillary (like Al Gore) won those states and she deserves those votes. Obama cannot win for us like Hillary could. It is a shame to see how the Democrats and the news media have been so one-sided…If Senator Obama receives the nomination under such dubious circumstances, then I assure you, the DNC has lost a lifelong supporter, and I know I am not alone in my thinking.

  7. Ruth says:

    I think the DNC has made a huge mistake in not counting these voters. No amount of later “damage control” is going to help this situation. Florida and Michigan voters need to be counted now.

    Obama has won CAUCUS states and there is ample evidence of quite a bit of cheating in several of them. Hillary is winning PRIMARIES and we all know there are no caucuses in November. She is clearly the strongest candidate against McCain.

    I for one cannot vote for Obama in November. The DNC and the MSM have utterly alienated those of us who supported Clinton. No one said a word and we feel this party does not represent us any further. We have been slated as racist or uneducated and every other disgusting label in the book if we did not support Obama.

    The marginalizing, the nasty attacks on Clinton AND her supporters who btw are HALF the voters in this part of the election are not going to help the DNC in November if Florida and Michigan are left out. It’s just one more reason to leave the democratic party since it has refused to BE democratic!

    Please count these votes and show you are still the democratic party we have identified with for so long.

  8. Valerie says:

    Every vote must count!
    It’s only right…otherwise you are suppressing and being un-constitutional. If the votes of Michigan and Florida do not count, so many people are going to feel like they have no voice, like their opinion and choice mean nothing. And to me, that is the most UN-American thing you can do to anyone. If those votes do not count, I will NEVER vote again! Because if their voices are silenced and do not matter, why should mine matter?

    Seat Florida and Michigan!!!

  9. Connie says:

    I sincerely feel that Hillary is the most qualified Candidate for President. I have believed this from day one of this race. Early on, I had also decided that if Hillary did not get the nomination, I would fully support whomever became the Democratic Nominee. However, since that time, after having gotten to know Obama better, and learned more about him, it has lead me to feel even more strongly, that Hillary is the best and most qualified. In fact, after learning more about Senator Obama there is no possible way that I can or will vote for him.

    I also believe, along with millions of others, that Hillary is the strongest Candidate to stand against McCain. Not only do I believe she can stand against him, I also believe that she can win the Election. If Obama, on the other hand, should become our Nominee, I feel that without a doubt, we will be delivering the race and Presidency straight into the hands of McCain and the Republicans.

    I am very disappointed in the behavior of the MSM and the DNC and their handling of this race. The Media failed to do any vetting of Obama until late in the game and many in the MSM showed extreme bias against Hillary, a fact that has even been noted by independent Watch Dog groups.

    So please let the voices of the voters in Michigan and Florida be heard, their votes need to and should be counted and their delegates need to and should be seated.

  10. Bodge says:

    Mr. Edwards, we must express our “extreme sadness” and disgust with your endorsement of the racist Obama after the voters in W.VA spoke in volumes about the concern of an Obama in the white house. You should have done some research since you quit in Jan/08. What about ALL the issues you threw at Obama while campaigning, now there ok with you because you need a job? How sad…We stood behind you twice until you quit the race and now YOU turned your back on those working “WHITE” middle class voters who supported you. It’s obvious that you’re looking out for your own special interests even after Obama gave you the slap down in a public debate which made voters feel you were weak, even then we defended you while your numbers fell drastically until you were forced to drop out, now you support that candidate who has more friends and corrupt business partners that HATE America, a wife that touts racism and not so proud of America now has you to join in the selling out of our great country. Shame on you! Because of your endorsement my family and friends WILL NOT support the Democratic Party if Obama is the nominee.

    You will never again have our support in any election. You know Senator Clinton is the strongest best candidate to help our country. Obama had divided the party in race and cannot win a general election with you and the black biased vote. His skin color DOES NOT entitle him to the Presidency…History will blame you or the democrats losing again in 2008.

    You should have LISTENED to your wife! Your problem with strong women is apparent and sad.

    We pray Mrs. Edwards is remains healthy. Enjoy your stay as the Osama’s hired help and having a part in destroying our great but troubled country with Obama terrorist’s friends! You showed the country you’re not the man you claimed to be. Thank God we didn’t elect you!!!

    Since the media has failed voters and Obamas refuse to explain or tell the truth, Maybe you can explain Obamas relationship with Ayers, Gadaffi Syrian tycoon, Antoin Rezko, Saudi Arabian Scheiks and Nadhami Auchi, Iraqi billionaire, global arms dealer who was best friends with Saddam Hussein, and the main financial backer for Saddam’s Iraqi -Saudi oil pipeline, and stood trial with Saddam Hussein for conspiring to assassinate Iraqi President Qasim. VOTERS are concerned why CNN & MSNBC refuse to question those relationships, coupled with Obama’s 20 plus yrs with Rev. Wright shows a serious pattern, which Obama seems quite comfortable with people who really, really, really HATE U.S of America. If you question him or his values or policies, you’re part of the “divisive, distracting” practices voters associate with Washington. Them’s the Obama Rules.

  11. Evelyn Jewell says:

    Yes, Florida & Michigan’s votes should be counted. The folks who voted in those two STATES, are U.S. citizens too.

    It appears, the DNC, allowed Obama’s scheme, not to count the votes in those two STATES, because it would put Hillary ahead in the delegate count, not Obama.

    Obama is not going to win this November, it’s evident, the way W.V. voted last Tuesday.

    Hillary is a much stronger candidate to beat Mc Cain.

    Yet, like the year 2004, we selected the wrong candidate, to win the White House. It’s about to happen again in 2008, for the Democrats.

  12. Ben Wilson says:

    Mi and Fl should count! They should do the vote again, but this is democracy, and democracy isnt democracy if it excludes elegible voters. Regardless of rules.
    Who knows the early voting could have been deliberate sabotage! If you guys dont get to vote I dont know how you can have any faith in the democractic (not the party) process

  13. VoteObama says:

    HIllary knew the rules going into Florida and Michigan and she signed the same pledge Obama signed not to campaign and to nullify these states’ delegates. She then decided to campaign in both states (against no one) and declare victory and now wants those delegates counted. Do we really want a president who will bend the rules to further her own interests? Haven’t we had enough of that with the last 8 years of Bush/ Cheney? When are people going to stand up and demand a leader with integrity and accountability–a leader who stands by their promises?

  14. VoteObama

    Clearly you are mis-informed. The media has made it very, very clear that neither Clinton or Obama campaigned in either Michigan or Florida.

  15. Janis Foreman says:

    I keep receiving emails and while I appreciate that the democratic party needs money, I am waiting until the nomination is over before I donate any more more to the democratic party. Like many millions of Americans I am disgusted at the way the democratic party has handed the nomination to Obama and at every turn trampled on Hillary Clinton. I am ready to leave the party along with 242 other members of my family. We will wait to see how this nomination ends up and, if it is Obama we will leave. Because we cannot believe after being good democrats all of our lives and watching Donna Brazile, Pelosi, Dean, Kennedy, Leahy, Dodd, etc take the party over and put their chosen one in as the nominee, we must assume that the party is run by radicals, like Obama. We have viewed many websites trying to find out about this candidate aside from the fact that he has no experience. We have gone to such sites as Savage Politics, No Quarter, etc and found too many disturbing things about him, Anti-American, terroist associates, not to mention his anti-white church, etc. I never thought any of us would have to make the choice to leave the democratic party. The mass media has been in the Obama tank from the beginning and I see hardly anyone in the democratic party going on these news shows (if you can call it that) and defending Hillary Clinton and making the case that Obama is not experienced and has all of this baggage. John Edwards just came out for Obama and took away the limelight from Hillary’s big win in West Virginia. Wasn’t that nice of him? For whatever reason, the democratic party has decided to push Clinton out of the process. No candidate has every been asked to leave a race before. I guess its the penis brigade. I am an American first and then I belong to the democratic party. However, since my party has deserted me and millions of others who voted for Hillary Clinton, unless she receives its nomination, she will leave. The Florida voters voted and for those who did not, it was your choice. Obama has been the one along with Brazile, Dean, etc who have helped make sure the votes in Michigan and Florida will not be counted. Other states moved their primaries up and were not punished. Obama stopped new primaries because he wanted only caucuses which we know what his supporters do at those now don’t we? He refused to let new primaries be run even when James Carville and others arranged to have the monies paid for it by them instead of the states. Hillary is more than qualified. Obama is despicable, giving the finger to Hillary Clinton, etc. If he is the nominee, we will leave the party. We will also work against anyone who voted for Obama so they are not elected or re-elected even if it means voting independent or republican for the first time in our lives. The Chicago mob infested our DNC. WE LOVED BILL CLINTON AND HIS ADMINISTRATION WAS THE BEST WE HAVE SEEN SINCE JOHN KENNEDY AND WE LOVE HILLARY CLINTON, THE CANDIDATE WHO KNOWS WHAT IS NEEDED AND KNOWS HOW TO DO IT.

  16. Note to all commenters:

    Please do not spread right wing talking points about Barack Obama here, such as Obama has terrorist connections. All further commenters here who make those claims will be subject to moderation as per our comment policy.

  17. Connie says:

    VoteObama…

    I don’t know where you get your information but it’s False, Hillary did not campaign in either state. She held two private fund raisers in the Florida, fund raisers were permitted under the pledge they signed. The speech she gave in Florida was made AFTER the polls had closed.

    Obama, however, did break the rules, he was the only Candidate that aired ads in Florida before the primary, this was a violation of the pledge he signed. He also held an impromptu news conference outside one of his fund raisers in Florida, where he answered over a dozen questions for news reporter. The fund raiser was of course permitted, meeting with the press and answering questions was not, so that’s another violation.

    In addition, Obama’s name was on the ballot in Michigan, He Chose to remove it. He then tried to have it put back on, he missed the deadline for filing the paperwork, so it was too late.

  18. Denise says:

    KC,
    Just because your vote is not important to you and you are happy to let the rest of the country decide for you, that does not negate the fact that it is unconstitutional to not count the votes cast. The DNC, the candidates, or Barney the dinosaur have no right to suggest a vote cast in America does not count or matter.
    Vote Obama,
    Again I would say to you…no one has the right to take away votes cast by any American citizen, period. No amount of debate will “CHANGE” that fact. Counting every vote is fundamental to our society.

  19. Brandon Frost says:

    I trully do not understand this idea that Hillary is being mistreated in Michigan and Florida. As a resident of Michigan for the past 28 years, I think it is horrible that Hillary continues to claim that she “won” Michigan when she was the only person on the ballot because she went against the rules that she and all the other candidates agreed to. And by the way, between the choice of Hillary and Nobody in Michigan, Hillary only beat nobody by 10%.

    Hillary is lying to her supporters by saying that the results of Florida and Michigan will make enough of a difference to change things. Even if Hillary gets the split in Florida and Michigan that her campaign has agreed to, she is still losing by a lot. Please, if you don’t believe me, go to slate’s delegate counter or any other site and do the extremely simple math required to figure out that it is over.

  20. Denise says:

    Brandonfrost,

    Mr Obama removed his own name, why is Hillary accountable for that? If she had removed her name from a contest she were unlikely to have won, like North Carolina for example, would that have meant Obama didn’t win it? Nonetheless, he tried to reinstate his name and then instructed his voters to cast as uncommitted. How else would you explain uncommitted receiving 40% of the vote in MI?
    Furthermore, check out the delegate statistics including MI and FL.
    This from the site 2008 Democratic Convention Watch, which has been remarkably accurate and consistently updated in keeping track of delegates.

    Obama 1987
    Clinton 1909
    remaining delegates 446

    http://demconwatch.blogspot.com/2008/01/superdelegates-who-havent-endorsed.html

    Therefore your plea is answered, I do not believe you.

  21. Brandon Frost says:

    Hi Denise,

    Thanks for taking the time to read my post.

    Yes, Obama took his name off the ballot because that is what everyone, including Hillary agreed to, when he saw that she went against her word and a signed statement that she made. Please listen to Hillary herself talk about it. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ULxxBz-PAjg .

    Also, I don’t see how they break down the delegates for MI and FL on the site that you linked and that is something that I would like to know, aren’t you interested to?

    The site shows that Hillary would go gain 193 Delegates from MI and FL and Barack would gain 76. That means that Hillary would get 72% of the vote to Barack’s 28%! How does that make any sense when she only got 55% when she was the only person on the ballot and in Florida barack got 33%.

    Also, 78 Delegates is an insurmountable margin when you realize that it there are only 189 delegates left that are not superdelegates and superdelegates are not going to overturn the voters.

    I was the biggest Clinton supporter during her time as first lady and in congress but her willfull misrepresentation and actions in Michigan have changed my views forever.

  22. Brandon Frost says:

    Denise,

    I was looking over the site again and they do show how they breakdown MI and FL here http://demconwatch.blogspot.com/2008/05/fl-mi-by-numbers.html . They chose to use the most pro Hillary Breakdown that seats the delegates not taking into account that Barrack was not on the Ballot, ie, He does not get any of the 55 uncommited delegates that you yourself state really were voting for him when they voted uncommited. So this break down is never going to happen and I’m sure everyone would agree is completely unfair. I’m guessing the DNC committee will go with the 69-59 split when they decide and then this race will be officially over and we can all go out for ice cream 🙂

  23. Brandon Frost says:

    Michigan has approved a plan to seat the delegates and the DNC will go with it.

    A 69/59 Delegate Split for Hillary. I think this is fair for everyone and I’m glad the Michigan Legislature did one thing right. But I would also strip away all superdelegates from MI and FL as punishment for screwing this up in the first place but I doubt they will.

  24. Brandon

    The video clip you linked to here is not a full quote of what Clinton said in the Oct 11, 2007 radio interview. From the WaPo:

    Democratic presidential hopeful Hillary Rodham Clinton said it would be foolish to take her name off Michigan’s primary ballot and sacrifice her chances against the Republican nominee.

    As the only top tier Democrat remaining on Michigan ballot, Clinton is all but guaranteed to win the state’s primary. Michigan is tentatively slated to send 156 delegates to the 2008 Democratic National Convention, but national party officials have threatened to take away those delegates if the state persists in holding its primary on Jan. 15.

    “It’s clear, this election they’re having is not going to count for anything,” Clinton said Thursday during an interview on New Hampshire Public Radio’s call-in program, “The Exchange.” “But I just personally did not want to set up a situation where the Republicans are going to be campaigning between now and whenever, and then after the nomination, we have to go in and repair the damage to be ready to win Michigan in 2008.”

    Speaking in the first primary state, Clinton said she understands concerns about her refusal. Rivals Barack Obama, John Edwards, Bill Richardson and Joe Biden took their names off Michigan’s Jan. 15 primary ballot this week, and Michigan’s hope for nominating clout all but evaporated.

    Clinton’s comment reflects an optimism she will win her party’s nomination to face the Republican nominee in November 2008. She said any snub to Michigan could hurt her _ and all Democrats’ _ chances to defeat the Republicans there.

    Clinton was prompted by a caller who said, “It strikes me that this is politics as usual, where politicians say one thing and do something else.”

    Clinton brushed aside the comment.

    I did not believe it was fair to just say, ‘Goodbye Michigan’ and not take into account the fact we’re going to have to win Michigan if we’re going to be in the White House in January 2009,” she said.

    My take on that is that she has always had concerns that Michigan count regardless of the DNC rules.

    Also FYI, Chris Dodd and Kucinich also remained on the ballot in MI, and as a Michigan resident, I am quite sure that you know that Michigan Obama and Edwards supporters were urged to go to the polls and vote “uncommitted” so that their votes would count in effect for Obama or Edwards.

  25. Brandon Frost says:

    Pamela,

    This is a done deal, I don’t know why Hillary is urging people to sign a petition. The Michigan delegates WILL COUNT as determined by the Michigan Legislature. It will be a 10 Delegate win for Hillary 69 to 59. Congratulations.

    http://www.freep.com/apps/pbcs.dll/article?AID=/20080507/NEWS15/80507111

  26. Brandon

    The petition is for both MI & FL – and nothing has been decided on FL. Furthermore the DNC rules committee meets at the end of the month and it is possible that the Michigan plan could change. Relax. Clinton supporters have a right to voice their opinions to the DNC via the petition — that is after all what freedom of speech is about.

  27. Brandon Frost says:

    I’m all for free speech, of course, but it makes no sense to argue over 10-20 delegates when Barack is going to win by 150. And its stupid to sign a petition for something that everyone, including Howard Dean, said is going to happen.

    I am not worried about the FL delegates, let all their votes count or don’t let any of their votes count, it makes no difference, Barack has won the nomination.

  28. Kathy says:

    Look what has happened to us. Here we are trying to rationalize who would get what and when. Who cares?

    We all are falling for a system that has failed us. It has failed not only the states but the voters as well. With the caucuses; the convenient state’s voting date; delegates, super delegates; complicated DNC rules… yikes!

    And, here we are fighting about the two senator’s and who gets what. How convenient for the DNC! We’ve got them right where they want us.

    Everyone please take a minute and think what is going on here. We’re not children and we understand that fellow Americans are being denied a voice. Are voting dates all that important? And, why are they held on a Tuesday? Why not Saturday, or after church on Sunday? Why not more than one day to vote, like Sears days?

    Nope, on a Tuesday, even if you have to work…

    Once again, we are forced to eat the BS political sandwich that has been handed to us since forever.

    The DNC was fully aware of what was happening to MI and FL long before they voted. Instead of someone being smart on the committee and simply saying “We see the tight spot you’re in and we accept the reason why you have to vote on that day. Go vote.”

    Now, wouldn’t that have been a reasonable solution. No, they have this proportional state date division that makes no sense to me, but who am I?

    We’re just a bunch of stupid Americans. The sad thing is, we can’t sell out and move to another country, because they’re just as stupid!

    These votes need to be counted! I don’t care whose name was on the ticket or not. I don’t care if they campaigned or not. But I do care that votes are counted, so quit bickering. Get a grip.

  29. Ruby says:

    Can any of you Hillary supporters do simple math? The numbers are against her. Do the math.

    Her loss is due simply to the faltering of her campaign, her strategies (or lack thereof) and tactical things. Pray tell it has nothing to do with her gender, but with the merits of her character (lack thereof). It is she, who has cast herself as a victim and you guys have fallen so very hard for it. It was she who started with negative campaigning. It was also she who said, “if you can’t stand the heat, get out of the kitchen.” Now all of you have seemingly suffered as well from the heat. Of course your votes matter, it ‘s just that those voting for Obama happen to matter more because they outnumbered yours.

    Just that simple — it really isn’t as serious as you make it to be. Should you vote for McCain, it is not only Obama voters who will suffer, but mostly you will suffer and will have to live with such a childish, foolish, selfish decision. It’s on you. You will bring about your own kind of change, from bad to worst.

  30. Ruby

    The simple math says that FL & MI must be counted. That’s all. Furthermore, as the owner/editor of The Dem Daily, I have been very vocal here about Clinton supporters following Hillary Clinton’s lead, in supporting Obama if he is the nominee. Thank you.

  31. june ploch says:

    She is still alive.. Count Florida and Michigan. We want her to be our president.

  32. Thanh Phan says:

    If Senator Hillary Clinton can not be DEM. nominee, I’ll vote for her as independent candidate.

  33. AJ says:

    As a Floridian senior, my very large family of democrats also live in the state. We didn’t vote, nor did my elderly mom and friends who follow my support every election. This was the first year since 18 that I didn’t vote. They said the votes wouldn’t count so in turn I told everyone not to. I was leaning toward Hillary because I liked the Clintons from the W.House.I’m glad I didn’t. I didn’t know Barack Obama unitl I rcvd cable to follow his campaign.If this is revoted as it should be, I will be happy to advise my family and friends to support Sen Obama.I have foolishly followed the Clintons until I rcvd all this derogatory information on the Clintons & I am disgusted.

    ***LINK REMOVED & COMMENT EDITED BY MODERATOR***

  34. AJ says:

    I would like to hear Senator’s Clinton explanation of the Clinton Chronicles. I am very hurt and distressed. I pray all these things are not true. I have been a loyal supporter and felt that although I didn’t vote for her as I wanted to in Florida I didn’t vote for anyone. If Senator Clinton were to be the nominee, I cannot in clear conscience refer my many family members and supporters to vote for Mrs Clinton blindly. They expect me to do my research. Thank you.

  35. Robert Lake says:

    I truly believe that Hilllary Clinton is by far the most qulaified of the three individuals running for the office of President of the United States. If in their infinite wisdom, the Democtatic Party does not see fit to nominate her to represent our party against John McCain this November they will be doing this country a great disservice. If that shoud happen I would hope Hillary would leave the Democratic party and declare herself an Independent and run as such in the November election. Based on the primaries and the popular vote that she has amassed, there is no doubt in my mind that she could and would be elected easily. I am a 20 year retired serviceman and a 22 year retired civil servant. I have always been a Democrat but am close to becoming an Independent because I don’t like the way the party and the DNC is treating the people in Michigan and in Florida(where I live.) If you don’t get the nomination please consider running as an Idependent. I AND MANY MORE WILL VOTE FOR YOU.

  36. Jeff says:

    The people in Florida need to get over the fact that she can’t win. Where was all this passion when the black people in Florida were disenfranchised in the 2000 election. She’ll probably cheat in the end to win the nomination and I was niave to think racism was a thing of the past. She ran a terrible campaign and if your mad at someone look towards her staff.

  37. Dennis Dittrich says:

    Florida and Michigan should be counted as they stand and BEFORE the DNC meets. My families live in both states, should their votes not be counted by Dean and the DNC, they will not stay home to vote, they will vote for McCain, and honestly, so will I.

    Mr. Obama does not have the experience yet to run this country. Clinton might night be a well loved politician, but theres a difference between being loved, and how to run this country that is now in the tank. Don’t be fooled, a majority of Clinton supporters will for the first time vote for a Republican over the shenanigans that have been run by the DNC and the news medias.

  38. AJ

    Your link has been removed. Please do not attempt to link here again to right wing biased Clinton haters. Thank you.

  39. Gloria Porfilo says:

    Hillary Clinton is the best candidate for president, most
    qualified, most intelligent, most experienced She has been
    treated so unfairly by both democrats and the media that
    this race will be considered illigitimate if Hillary is not at the
    top of the ticket. She has the majority of popular vote,
    majority of electoral votes where it counts and is needed to
    win. She wins without African vote, but Obama loses to
    white women, blue collar workers, hispanic, jewish, catholics,
    and anti Rev. Wright people. So this is a no brainer, and
    superdelegates must follow the voice of the people not the
    voice of the superdelegates.
