• Pretty funny, people keep saying that before every state votes, then Hillary gets walloped time and time again.

    I don't think momentum has existed in this race. People are voting for the candidate they want as President most of all, since both have had an equal chance of winning.

    Now if Obama wins Wisconsin and one of the two big states coming up, I think we'll see momentum, but more likely Hillary dropping out of the race before that happens.

    You're correct, the candidate with the most delegates and the DNC will control the convention. Hmm, I wonder how they'll rule?

  • on a comment on Florida voters over 6 years ago

    Haha so the "Rules Committee" doesn't set rules? Most of these states certainly thought they did.

    And in order to be seated at the convention, the decision would need to be overturned by the rules committee for the convention. Those are the rules.

  • Exactly, so what's your point? It obviously isn't weather related.

  • So the weather will be the excuse this time? Btw you're wrong on that. The weather will be bad on Sunday and Hillary is still doing events on that day. Then the weather will clear up on Monday (when Hillary will be doing an event and then leaving early). So she's leaving early and the weather will be fine at that point, but she's doing events when the weather is nasty. Your point has obviously been proven wrong.

    The rules are that Florida receives no delegates. This is the one Hillary now wants to change.

    It sounds like you're the one that doesn't like Democracy. The Obama has the right side of this argument, which is following the rules already in place. You want to change those rules after the fact, which is wrong.

  • comment on a post Wisconsin: Should be a Clinton win over 6 years ago

    The media seems to believe Wisconsin should be a Hillary state. Many commentators have been saying how it's a blue-collar state and they just can't see why she's not there.

    If candidates had campaigned in Florida and people expected our results to count, then there would have been a different result. If Hillary wanted a change in the rules, the time to ask for it was before Iowa, NH, and others voted.

    Political parties aren't in the Constitution. The DNC sets the rules. Rules are rules.

    The delegates will be seated, but it should be half-half for Obama and Hillary. There is no reason to give one candidate more than the other.

  • comment on a post Wisconsin -- HUH? over 6 years ago

    I would point out I don't think the McAuliffes and that the side of the party has ever been good at running campaigns. McAuliffe did a terrible job running the DNC and was always hammered in debates with Mehlman and other RNC people. Really it's people like Penn, McAuliffe, and the DLC more than anything else that I don't want Hillary to win. I just don't think the Democratic Party can afford more years of their leadership and that's being shown quite well in this campaign.

    And no one was easily swayed. The point is they voted for Edwards on progressive principle because it didn't matter anyway.

    I would have voted Edwards either way and made the point that others might as well vote for him since Florida is not going to count. In other words, it wasn't crucial to vote Obama if they wanted to stop Hillary, since there are no delegates.

  • on a comment on Florida voters over 6 years ago

    I don't want any rule change. The DNC has already decided Florida doesn't count, so that's how it should remain.

    If voters had known Florida was going to count, then some would have voted differently or even voted at all.

    That's why the DNC should not count Florida. Stick to the rules.

  • comment on a post Wisconsin -- HUH? over 6 years ago

    I am wondering if there are two teams who want different directions in the Clinton campaign?

    It seems part of her campaign wants her to go to Wisconsin (the side running the ads is WI). But the other side has her campaigning in Ohio and Texas and not spending much money on those ads in WI. It's hard to see one coherent strategy with this discrepancy.
