It seems the man most resembling a real Democrat this time is McCain and the closet Republican is Obama, who:
-would extend Bush's faith-based initiative
-supports telecom immunity
-voted for Cheney's energy bill
In what ways is Obama standing up for Liberal ideals and values?
The heart and soul of the Democratic party has been kicked to the curb by the likes of Donna Brazile. The RBC violated its own rules and chose Obama over Hillary, ignoring the fact that most voters, most Democrats voted for her, not him. As a result of the undemocratic nature of the DNC and top Democrats, millions of Democrats have left the party, joined PUMA groups, registered as Independents or Republicans or will simply not vote for Obama, should he be nominated at the convention.
The mean-spirited Obama supporters who call PUMAs names are acting in a self-defeating manner that will ensure retribution on November 4.
Hmm, maybe something will hit the news at 9 AM Monday morning that'll shed some light on some things.
Just remember: There is no such thing as a committed or pledged delegate. All delegates have the right to change their mind. They have a duty and a responsibility to go with the best candidate for the nomination to represent the party in November.
It doesn't matter what delegates Obama thinks he has by Tuesday night. It doesn't matter if he declares himself the winner on Wednesday. What matters is how those delegates vote in August.
Even if Obama gets to 2118, the new goal post, those delegate positions don't count until late August in Denver. Between then and next week, lots of things can happen. We will not have a nominee until August 28. More stuff on Obama will be coming out that may sour delegates on Obama who is already doing worse in the polls and has a declining approval rating.
As a result of the travesty in DC today by the RBC, a whole lot of long-faithful Democrats are going to be leaving this party. The DNC is breaking its own rules and that's intolerable. You just don't hand someone someone else's delegates. That deal they made with MI is totally unacceptable.
If you're looking for party unity, after today's stunt, you can just forget about it.
Many Obama supporters don't need health care right now so they don't care that his plan is far worse than Hillary's. And here I thought liberals wanted universal health care. Maybe Obama's white supporters aren't liberals or progressives.
Since the majority of Democrats and the majority of all primary voters want Hillary, she should be our nominee. She's also much stronger against McCain. It's the job of the super delegates to nominate the best candidate for the fall election. It'd be absurd to give the nomination to the weakest candidate.
Wonderful diary, linfar! I like wolves and all critters and varmints, being one myself. Not only shouldn't this be a Hillary/Barack issue, it shouldn't even be a R/D issue. We all have a stake in this planet so we should all care about nature.
It was wrong for the Bush admin to de-list wolves. Let's hope efforts to protect the wolves succeed.
Excellent diary! Yes, Hillary is helping to break down barriers, break through the glass ceiling, and pave the way for other women. She's a real champion! That's why Democrats overwhelmingly support her, especially women.
Women who are champions of women's rights don't remain silent when an injustice is done. They speak out and tell it like it is as Hillary has done and then keep on fighting.
