Clearly, Rep. Jackson, Jr. is speaking in hyperbole, expressing how deeply it means to him as an African-American. I imagine that according to how he sees the world, this is a very, very significant event, one that touches him personally. And personal moments always outweight events that we only see through the lens of students of history.
Jackson is not suggesting that we convene a modern version of the Council of Nicea to amend and re-edit the Bible.
...and you do, when you say that it would have been legitimate to award Hillary all of the delegates, then I think it's only fair to mention that your definition of legitimacy includes tossing out 30,000 votes because a candidate's name was written in.
You're willing to throw away all of the votes of the people who voted uncommitted, who clearly didn't want to vote for Clinton. What's not so clear is who they would have voted for had they been given an actual choice. And, of course, there's the matter of those people who would have voted had the primary been sanctioned.
For all these reasons(and a few more), the "results" of the MI primary cannot be said to legitimately reflect the will of the voters of MI.
to their daughters and granddaughters exactly why it is they can't get an abortion after they've been raped because back in the day they voted for John McCain to spite Obama and gave away the Supreme Court to rightwing zealots.
I come from a family of strong independent women and I hope these so-called feminists have the deceny and good sense to NOT screw future generations of women by voting McCain.
