The DNC Website

--Grace O'Rourke:
The DNC seems to be negating the need for a convention. Just visit the DNC web site where you will see – on the home page – the image of only ONE candidate. Can you guess who? Is this a selection or an election?

A phone call to the DNC's 'Contact Us' number proved challenging [no one is available to take calls!]. I finally spoke to Christy in the 'Press/Media' unit. Christy tried to do the "brush off"; however, she opted to listen once I advised her that, if the DNC did not want to hear the concerns of a fellow Democrat then, perhaps, the NY Daily News, NY Post, etc…would be interested. Christy did want to know if I was a reporter! What is the DNC afraid of?

Right now, the DNC Home Page, depicts a photo of only Barack Obama. By doing this the DNC is, in the minds of millions of Democrats, effectively disengaging them. Until the convention is over, there are still two candidates. Must we remind the DNC that they are not the press/media; the DNC represents ALL Democrats and must abide by our rules and fundamental beliefs of inclusiveness. The DNC risks disengaging millions of Democrats and assisting in electing a Republican if they forget these truths.

The DNC should immediately depict the images of both Sen. Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama. The DNC should publicly set the record straight, via the DNC web site and other media, that there will be a [delegate] vote at the Convention in Denver. The DNC best remind themselves that Sen. Hillary Clinton can still be on the ballot in November! What will they do then?

I HAVE JUST RECEIVED AN E-MAIL FROM HILLARYCLINTON.COM IN WHICH SHE ASKS ME TO TELL HER WHAT MATTERS THE MOST TO ME. IS SHE REACHING OUT TO US SINCE HER VOICE MAIL IS ALWAYS FULL WHEN I TRY TO CONTACT HER OR AM I READING TOO MUCH INTO THIS?

What I think is this election has been taken over by NDC power brokers (we all know who they are) and the media. That said, it's also true that while Senator Clinton did not release her delegates, she did give a rather empassioned speech stating that she had suspended her campaign and was throwing her support behind Barack Obama. And, since that time has continued to campaign for him. Let's face it, having her say in that now famous speech, "We must elect Barack Obama" repeatedly (ugh) was a strong statement on her part. So, while I'm an ardent Clinton supporter and continue to advocate for her in every way I can, I think the DNC's home page depicting Obama is somewhat telling not only of their bias, but of the fact that (sadly) Clinton did not remain in the race. She did not say she was going to take it all the way to Denver. So, it makes the waters a bit murky.

oops, meant DNC, not NDC (or perhaps it was a Freudian slip and I meant NDC = No Democratic Conscience!)

If you are reading this Hillary.
What matters the most to me is to protect America by defeating Obama come November. If you DON'T want to play a part that is YOUR choice but we can't allow the DNC to get away with stealing votes and selecting their own candidate. The issues are secondary to voter fraud and takeover by certain DNC members. Hillary YOU WON and you shouldn't throw in the towel but understand if that is your choice but we 18 million supporters have to stand our ground if it means voting for McCain, so be it. No vice-president deal either. NO OBAMA PERIOD HE DOESN'T BELONG IN THE WHITE HOUSE. YOU DO. To heck with 2012 I will be dead then. It is Hillary or McCain, that is it.
