Hillary Clinton's campaign is directly responsible for stripping Florida of it's delegates and now she wants to break her own rules. The original penalty for holding an early primary was to lose 50% of a State's delegates. Only one delegate to the DNC Rules Panel voted for that option...
The Obama supporter!
All 12 Clinton supporters voted to completely strip both Michigan and Florida of the delegates Hillary so desperately now wants to count. Aren't we tired of Leaders who cheat?
On Aug. 25 (2007), when the DNC's rules panel declared Florida's primary date out of order, it agreed by a near-unanimous majority to exceed the 50 percent penalty called for under party rules. Instead, the group stripped Florida of all 210 delegates to underscore its displeasure with Florida's defiance and to discourage other states from following suit. In doing so, the DNC essentially committed itself, for fairness' sake, to strip the similarly defiant Michigan of all 156 of its delegates three months later. Clinton held tremendous potential leverage over this decision, and not only because she was then widely judged the likely nominee. Of the committee's 30 members, a near-majority of 12 were Clinton supporters. All of them—most notably strategist Harold Ickes—voted for Florida's full disenfranchisement. (The only dissenting vote was cast by a Tallahassee, Fla., city commissioner who supported Obama.)
There's a lot more to this story but it all boils down to the simple fact that Hillary Clinton lost the nomination by her own devious calculated lies and maneuvers and now will not, or can not, face that truth. She must now cheat to win and every minute she remains in the race, she divides the Democratic Party more and more. She can't win the Presidential nomination and it looks to me like she thinks the only way she can get the Vice Presidential spot is by threatening to tear the Democratic Party into shreds unless she gets her way.
I am very disappointed with Hillary Clinton. I thought she was better than that.
