Silly Saturday: 2210 & All That Jazz
No matter what happens at the DNC's Rules & Bylaws Committee meeting today, Clinton wins.
I'm not kidding. There'll be gnashing of
The minute that stupid Jack Johnson, Maryland's now infamous Clinton-pledged delegate, switched to the Obamadarkside, all bets were off. You see, "pledged" delegates are no longer required (per party rules) to vote for their candidate in the first vote on the convention floor; ergo, there's really no such thing as a pledged delegate.
Watch the video while you read the rest...
One more point: "Uncommitted" means just that; it doesn't mean "Votes for Obama."
Got that? If the RBC votes to assign Michigan's uncommitted primary votes to Obama (even though he took his name off the ballot, and so did several other Dem prez candidates), the Clinton campaign's appeal --on behalf of the voters-- will be swift.
A final point: Do you want a candidate who backs party leaders or one who backs the voters all the way?
No matter what happens today, Clinton wins, and Obama looks like the party elders' political appeaser dude... more than willing to honor party process over the voters. What a loser strategy!
Hey, Clinton has nothing to lose as the champion of the American voter. Remember the Clinton-Boxer Count Every Vote Act of 2005? Even John Kerry signed on as a co-sponsor. Duh.
This really is my final point, I swear: Even if Obama manages to get 2210 delegates to swear allegiance to him in their own damned blood, they can still change their minds, rendering those blood oaths moot.
Have A Silly Saturday! Look for silliness wherever you go today. Here in DC, there will be much silly huffing and puffing by Obama followers... to no avail. Full of sound and fury and all that jazz. Signifying nothing.
Best bar bet in the world: Delilah didn't do it.
Judges 16:19-- And she made him (Samson) sleep upon her knees; and she called for a man, and she caused him to shave off the seven locks of his head.
