Democrats to stage symbolic vote on Clinton's bid

-- What a load of crap !! There's no honor here. This looks like a humiliating pat on the head.


WASHINGTON (AFP) - Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton said Thursday they had agreed to submit her name to a symbolic vote by convention delegates who will decide the Democrats' White House nominee this month.

"I am convinced that honoring Senator Clinton's historic campaign in this way will help us celebrate this defining moment in our history and bring the party together in a strong united fashion," Obama said in a joint statement.

So what precisely do you people expect? You said you would stop whining if her name in put into nomination. Now, it will be and you're STILL not happy.

You can't force her into the presidency when SHE LOST THE NOMINATION fair and square. Talk about "selected, not elected!"

Neither candidate had the delegates required -- Obama people are unwilling to admit it. Superdelegates, according to DNC rules do not count until convention. Hillary was bullied out by Pelosi and Dean (the unity BS). It is sad, but if no Hillary then the silent Democrats for McCain will be deciding factor. Consequenctly, Republican President 4 more years.

I think it's ridiculous. I find it very interesting that this needed to be negotiated. When have elected delegates not been permited to do what they were elected to do: vote for their nominee? It seems Obama has now taken over the DNC..it's a shame what this party has now become.

Unless as some suspect you guys are really just Republican members of "Operation Chaos," I seriously doubt you wish to give McCain the keys to:

- Continue the Iraq war.
- Continue to sit on healthcare reform.
- Continue to give the rich tax breaks.
- Nominate 1, perhaps 3 anti-choice Supreme Court judges.

Oh please..ALL the Bush damage has ALREADY been done, nothing is going to change that...what we need here is to send a strong message to the DNC that we do not support a party that ignores the sexism that destroyed Hillary's campaign. The fact that Obama himself never spoke out about it is a shame..where are all the REAL DEMOCRATS??

I would rather give McCain keys to anything before letting nobama get anywhere near the door. And I am not a Repulican - but I will be an Independent after Novemeber.

for the first poster,

Are you fucking serious? OMG!

NO, I'm still not happy. This does nothing but insult the party's voters.

Can Obama keep his penis in his pants? The answer is no.

This has become the Alpha Dog party with its bitches in toe.

The Real Democrats will be taking its party back but its going to hurt first.

Sorry but its going in that direction.

It is not only a disgrace, but it is truly frightening to witness the fascistic takeover of a party by a candidate who lost the vote, and many of whose endorsers violated the trust of their Hillary voting constituents to endorse him because they were PAID to do so.

Rockin Robin said...

oh, and the link works

This is a good thing. The load of crap is that this obviously came from the Obama camp. Since when is the vote symbolic? It is an actual vote that can change the outcome but Obama is doing what he did before. Creating rumors and mis-information in order to sway the less informed voters. Just like his camp started that Hillary was going to announce that she was going to quit on the last day of voting. People saw the news, heard that and it affected some votes. This is the same thing. The vote isn't symbolic. It has real power and that is what we need to clarify up until the convention.

She did not lose the nomination idiot, they took it from her...and further more...in case you did not notice another lowlife man can't keep his pants zipped and again a woman has to pay for his lies.... I believe they all knew he was a cheater and had no prayer of being nominated but, simply wanted to garner more delegates for someone else beside us to give to "THE ONE" which Edwards did when he quit....he knew he wasn't going to get away with his cheating...yet he still continued to go after the delegates...well he got them didn't he and then like the DNC took FLorida and Michigan felegates and handed them to "THE ONE" he handed them over...I believe it was planned to keep Senator Clinton from winning the nomination...are you really that stupid? Just wait, it's not November yet...and "THE ONe can't seem to keep his mouth in working order....and oh, yea...we are voting for McCAIN...we'd rather vote for an honorable man than a sneak, a sexist and a radical racist...

irma said...

I believe that Obama is an honorable America loving man. I believe that Howard Dean and Nancy Pelosi are honorable and fair. I also believe in fairy tales. Yeap, that's how naive and ignorant I am. Can you believe that Dean had the audacity to ask for urgent action to fight the smears in the Obama Nation book. Says he's drawing the line here. Why wasn't he as furios when our own party attacked Senator Clinton. He never stood up to anybody then. Yea, he not only condoned it, he and Pelosi joined in. Sorry Dean, you're on your own. Defend your beloved Obama yourself.

When are people going to "wake" up??? OMG....Obama...has NO conscience..he doesn't care about anyone....other than himself...he's nothing more than a "slimball"....with...slick, sneaky ways...anyone who believes that he's going to do US any good...had better think twice...I still say agree with a few of you here...that this is NOT over with...The whole DNC is nothing more than a "sham" and should be ashamed of themselves for how they have acted and that would be...immature adults!! At least John McCain has kept things clean...would rather see him as President than Obama....and, look at the "baggage" that Obama would bring into that White House....anyone trusting him need to have their heads examined!!!!!!!!

To the first Poster:

I would like to say that Hillary got more votes from the primary. How can you say that Hillary lost. Hillary is in this situation because of the current corrupted DNC.

Do you remember, in the past they say that superdelegates should cast their votes with the people from their states. If this idea holds, Mr. John Keryy, Mr. Ted Kenedy, Mrs. Nanay Pelosi (and many more) should vote for Hillary. Now, they keep their mouth close. Do you think this is fair to Hillary?

We are not bitter but we are disgusted about the unfair treatment that Hillary received during the primary.

Wow, I started a flurry. The blogmistress should be pleased!

rockin:

Yes, I'm completely serious.

Care to elaborate on any "in his pants" comment specific to Obama except one from a self-proclaimed, now disgraced male prostitute? We already know McCain can't "keep it in his pants," having cheated on his first wife with his current--and he's your only other choice--Clinton LOST.

BTW: It's "in tow," not "in toe." I always knew PUMAs were brainless.


Real Democrats support their party instead of their sexist, every 28 days "a woman or else" bipolar silliness.


hilgal:

Uh, yeah, she did LOSE. Just look at the yahoo delegate results or any other factual information.

As to you calling all men "lowlife" and relating Obama to an otherwise unrelated man, thanks for proving you are little more than a misandrist (man-hater) and can therefore be dismissed.

FL and MI screwed themselves. They knew there would be repercussions when they voted early, but they did anyway. And oh by the way, your gal Hill totally agreed with denying their votes, until it looked like it was going to cost her.

As to sexism, the only sexism here was PRO-female. The special allowances for crying -- a male candidate would have been laughed out of the race for such a display, the affronts at any direct attack when men get much worse. The list is endless.

anon at 4:31 (last before me as I'm writing):

No, Obama got the most votes. That's why he's the nominee. Clinton was leading only in the supers and that was fading fast. Clinton is in this situation because she is incompetent. How else do you explain how she ran up her current debt on a failed campaign.

Heck, if you had the 18M you claim, a lousy $2 each would erase the debt. Where is it? The truth is, YOU aren't there!

I fully suspect this post will be gone by morning. If you have an ounce of honesty and integrity, prove me wrong!

Lauren M said...

Hillgal2008 and Rockin Robin.... you make me proud.

Rockin Robin may have a nasty mouth, but she is who she is and not some fake smooth talking slim ball running for President. Rockin Robin, I honor your input..... you are entitled to your opinion and all your points are valid..... so thank you.

Edwards is another jerk who found an opportunity to stick it to the American people..... Hell, he is a dishonest liar and cheat with his wife..... why would we expect him to be any better to Hillary (or us stupid American citizens who expected more of him).

I know, don't even bring up Bill, because two wrongs don't make a right and you would think the dumb ass would have learned something from past history...... Gawd.... people can be sooooooo stupid.

It's funny how the only honorable person who isn't a dishonest backstabbing cheater is pushed out of running for a position that would basically require those traits in a person's character. I get it now, Hillary just did NOT fit the mold.

No longer can Americans trust the media, which was given special constitutional privileges to look out for the folks."Obama is an empty suit. From the day he was sworn in to the Senate to the date he declared his run for the presidency, is only 145 days on the job. He has literally no experience. (Not figuratively, literally!) He's not qualified to run a Dairy Queen.

Proven Obama has most liberal voting record in the U.S. Senate. Obama is to the left of Ted Kennedy, Hillary Clinton, Russ Feingold, Pat Leahy and Barbara Boxer. That's extremely difficult to do. Obama is a textbook big-government, tax-and-spend liberal. He plans to raise income tax rates, capital gains tax rates, Social Security taxes (by virtue of eliminating the cap), dividend taxes, inheritance taxes, and introduce a slew of new taxes. His plan will destroy this country

To ALL the obamakins and of course the bias CNN & MSNBC I have one simple request. Please spare me the hope and the change bull, and the Bush's third term, McSame etc… Please just tell American voters what qualifies Barack Obama to run this country. What qualifies him to oversee our $14 trillion economy, the largest on earth? What qualifies him to be commander-in-chief of the U.S. armed forces in a time of war? Please just give me one single solid qualification. And race does not qualify!! That would be one more than anyone including cable media has provided to date. WE ALL HAVE GROWN EXTREMLY TIRED OF MEDIA SAINTED OBAMA….

Obama keeps reaching back to Chicago political past for policy advisers, and pulling one despicable, vile, and even evil “rabbit” after another out of his hat.
The list of Barack Obama’s radical associations is long and it keeps getting longer. Some are now well-known, but many are not. They need to be.

23 years at TUCC with Jeremiah Wright and James Meeks. racist sermons on Youtube.
He chose the most radical church in the country; chose to immerse himself in hard-core ideological radicalism. Never before has this country considered such a radical leftist for its chief executive.

Michael Pfleger and his hateful and race-hating ramblings, Obama met while carrying out his own radical social activism as community organizer at ACORN, (radical organization)

Penny Pritzker, heads Obama camp National Finance Committee was president of Superior Bank - massively failed and she literally bought her way out of jail paying $460 MILLION fine; was the very epicenter of subprime loan scandal” that would come to eat this nation’s financial system alive.

Fannie Mae CEO Jim Johnson, former head of Obama’s vice presidential selection committee, discovered he benefited from sweetheart loans from subprime king Countrywide.

Tony Rezko certainly and his federal indictments and financial dealing with Obamas of course and William Ayers, US terrorist bomber, Obama-co-lecturer, fellow board member, neighbor, and friend.

Communist Frank Marshall Davis, obama mentor; Saul Alinsky and Gerald Kellman (Kellman’s Woods Fund is how Obama hooked up with terrorist William Ayers)

Chicago lawyer Mazen Asbahi, appointed as Obama camp national coord for Muslim n affairs also stepped down after news about his stint on the fund’s board - which includes fundamentalist imam - prompting The Wall Street Journal inquiries about relationship with the Muslim Brotherhood and his long personal relationship with Hamas Jamal Said.

Obama desperately needs voters to forget hes the son of a Muslim father who served an incredibly brutal and corrupt Kenyan government; to forget he attended a madrassa in Indonesia and practiced Islam; forget that he campaigned in Kenya on behalf of Raila Odinga, who relied upon chaos, corruption, and violence in his campaign; numerous associations with radical Muslims; forget the photographs of Obama in traditional Muslim clothes, hanging with Muslim radicals such as Mazen Asbahi and anti-Semite Rashid Khalidi.

The mainstream media has frankly put the security of our great country at risk with an Obama coronation media like CNN & MSNBC is the only way Obama managed to steal the Dem nom. It’s extremely concerning that so many Americans could care less about who their candidate really is?? simply amazing and frankly scarey.

More and more people are becoming Hillary supporters by the second. My mother voted republican in the primary and now after the recent months she wishes she had voted for Hillary, in fact we may not even vote at all.

Truth is if this is a true democracy then we should be able to write her in on the ballot. Why should be forced to support Barack Obama because I affiliate as a democrat. Its the most undemocratic thing I have ever seen. No wonder everyone is going Independent!!!! Duh!!!

Calling the current state of the nomination a victory for Obama is simply one more Obama scam.
