Democratic National Committee MUST Come Up with an Equitable Decision


The DNC Should NOT Reward Those Who Break the Rules, Whatever the Political Fallout.

It is akin to rewarding a criminal who breaks the law.

Florida and Michigan broke the rules.

These two states must be seen by other states as serving a punishment from DNC. Otherwise, it makes a mockery of the power of the DNC to enforce party rules and an insult to the constitutional framework of the Democratic Party.

It sends a wrong signal to others and sets a bad precedent.

Hillary Clinton's play on Florida and Michigan is opportunistic.

She had agreed that that these two states should play by the rules and be punished by the rules.

For DNC to acquiesce to Hillary Clinton's demand that the goal post be moved once the game has started is morally and legally unacceptable.

    Reader’s letter: Clinton disappoints Democratic Party

    Wednesday, May 28, 2008 12:26 AM PDT

    I am stunned by Hillary Clinton’s behavior and deeply saddened by it. I used to hold her up as someone to emulate, now I just bow my head in embarrassment for her. She is not “entitled” to be president, so please stop!

    Both Florida and Michigan knew the rules and they broke them. The DNC stripped Florida and Michigan of 366 total delegates after the two states submitted delegate selection plans that violated party rules. She should stop acting as if she is owed this nomination! It’s not her time. And unfortunately it may never be if she keeps behaving like an elitist.

    I am and always will be a Yellow Dog Democrat, but if she somehow corrupts this fair primary, I can promise her I will vote for Ralph Nader before I vote for her.

    Shame on her and the disgrace she brings upon this party. If she thinks Florida voters would really throw their votes away on McCain because they would rather be childish instead of voting out the status quo, she is delusional.

    Don’t be a cheater, a liar and a thief. Don’t prove the conjecture of the right wing when they went after you and President Clinton during the witch hunt of Whitewater. Have some self respect and stop using the McCain threat, it’s ridiculous!
