Vote Count and the Will of the Democratic Party

Hillary Clinton maintains that she is the rightful nominee of the Democratic Party.

She bases this claim on the premise that she is the popular vote leader.

Is she the popular vote leader and if she is should we use the popular vote as the measure of the party's will?

Let's look at the numbers; according to Real Clear Politics Obama has 17,596,239 popular votes, while Hillary Clinton has 17,650,671 popular votes. Therefore Clinton has 54,432 vote margin and a claim on the nomination basis on winning the popular vote. 2008/president/democratic_vote_count.htm l

How can Obama supporters deny Hillary the nomination if she has won more votes without being anti-democratic?

There are two basic reasons for rejecting the popular vote as the measure of party will. If either if these arguments for rejecting Hillary's claim is true then Hillary's claim to "more popular votes" as the reason she is the rightful winner of the nomination is false.

If you care to hear my argument join me after the fold.

We have a unique chance to make a statement to McCain, Arizona, the media, and the Republican Party. John McCain is coming to Prescott Arizona tomorrow at 11:00 AM. We want to greet him with more war protesters than supporters. Prescott is a relatively small town and McCain will be lucky to get a few hundred people here. Two weeks ago we had over 100 for a vigil marking the fifth anniversary of the invasion and occupation of Iraq. If we can get the word to Phoenix and Flagstaff we could easily have bigger crowd than McCain. We have no intention of disrupting McCain's rally. We just want to show McCain, the media and the Republican Party our strength. The rally is at the Court House Square, and starts officially at 11:00 a.m. We want to be there at 10:00 am. Please reccomend this diary so that it gets maximum exposure. We have a unique chance to make a statement to McCain, Arizona, the media, and the Republican Party. If you can come to Prescott, and have contacts in Arizona, please help me get the word out.
