Wisconsin Delegate for Hillary gets ousted for not supporting Obama

Apparently if your a delegate and you don't support Obama you lose your delegate status.

Debra Bartoshevich a Hillary delegate has been kicked out of the Denver Convention for not fully supporting Obama.

"In an interview, Bartoshevich expressed lingering unhappiness over the Democratic nominating process, said Clinton was treated unfairly by the party and said she has deep reservations about Obama’s lack of experience and his judgment.

“I’m kind of disenfranchised,” she said.

She said she planned to vote for Clinton at the convention, but in an Obama-McCain matchup in November, “I will not be voting for Obama. I will cast my vote for John McCain.

“I just feel you need to have somebody who has experience with foreign matters.”

She said a series of controversial Obama associations, including but not limited to the Rev. Jeremiah Wright and Chicago developer Tony Rezko, reflected poorly on his judgment. And she echoed the complaints of many of Clinton’s most ardent supporters that Clinton was treated unfairly in the nominating process and by the party.

“No self-respecting woman should wish or work for the success of a party that ignores her — that’s by Susan B. Anthony,” said Bartoshevich, referring to the suffragist.

Bartoshevich called herself a “devoted Democrat” who had never voted for a Republican for president.

“I’m on a lot of the (pro-Clinton) blogs, and so many people, male and female, feel the same way as I do,” said Bartoshevich, who was listed as a Racine County co-chair for the Clinton campaign and who traveled outside Wisconsin to volunteer for Clinton. “The Democrats jumped on this wagon of Barack Obama, and nobody really knows him.”

Never in a hundred years did I think I would be reading things like this about the Democratic Party. It saddens me...

This is so outrageous!! People really need to stand up and protect our democratic process! This primary has been a sham!! The media and DNC have appointed us a nominee while stomping on Senator Clinton from the very beginning.
I'm seeing some very troubling signs and I hope our elected officials who are paid to work for, and represent the people, stand up and say NO DEAL!!!
I highly praise this Wisconsin delegate who displayed her integrity and honor above party politics!!
Mr Obama has more baggage than United Airlines!! We need super- delegates and delegates to do their job and not allow this hijacking of our democracy to take place!

OUR VOICES ARE NOT GOING TO BE HEARD. THE DNC AND OBAMA WILL DO WHAT THEY PLEASE..IT IS LIKE DEAN SAID HE DIDN'T KNOW THAT THEY WAS BEING SEXIST TO HILLARY! BULL! THEY NEED TO THROW HIM OUT OF THE DNC, AND INVESTIGATE WHAT THE HECK IS GOING ON. OBAMA IS TAKING OVER LIKE THE MOFIA. WE WILL NOT BE HEARD THIS COMING AUGUST AT ALL IF OBAMA HAS ANYTHING TO DO WITH IT...THAT IS WHY EVERYTHING IS BEING MOVED TO CHICAGO...ANYONE GOING UP AGAINST HIM WILL BE MUD. AND WE THOUGHT THE REPUBLICANS WAS BAD. WE HAVEN'T SEEN ANYTHING YET..I AM STILL SETTING THIS ELECTION OUT. MY FINGERS ARE NOT GOING TO BE DIRTIED BY THE DNC OR THE REPUBLICANS. I FEEL SORRY FOR THE MILLIONS OF WOMEN WHO STOOD UP FOR HILLARY..WE HAVE BEEN SET BACK A 100 YEARS. WE HAVE BEEN DENIED DUE PROCESS BY THE MEDIA AND DNC.

The problem is that the Democratic is undemocratic. This was Howard Dean's party, now it is Obama party.

Sign up to be an independent today.

If not Hillary, then McCain. It's easier than you think! At least we know that McCain loves this country.

I couldn't agree more with all of you that have left comments..I've not been this involved with an election since Bill Clinton ran for President...The way the media..critics treated her...all of them should be highly ashamed of themselves...the thing is...they all knew that she has experience and that she could win in November...but, they let Obama sway them...To me...EXPERIENCE counts...I don't feel good in the fact that Obama could win...in fact...it scares me...all he ever talked about was "change" but never said what those "changes" would be...he started throwing dirt at Hillary and he would have liked her to "bow out" long before she did...I still feel that the convention should decide the candidate and do away with the delegates and super delegates...I admire Hillary and the speech she gave on June 7th...I knew in my heart that it had to have hurt her to give that speech...she put it to her supporters to "unite" and support Obama but...I know that I cannot do that....the whole thing is a mess anyway now....
NEVER GIVE UP ON YOUR DREAM, HILLARY......YOUR SUPPORTERS WILL ALWAYS REMAIN FAITHFUL TO YOU...
GOD BLESS YOU....ALWAYS!!
