Talking Points
• We believe that the DNC must honor our core democratic principles and enfranchise the people of MI and FL and their respective delegations.
• We believe that Hillary Clinton is best for our party, most likely to win in November and best for our country.
• We believe the contest for the democratic nomination must not end before all of the votes from each State and US Territory have been cast and counted and that nominating conventions, not candidates (or the media), declare the nominee.
• We believe that the media and DNC have underestimated the passion, strength, intensity and determination of women voters and the power of the women’s vote.

Rules:
• We are not going to be disruptive; we are not going to break any rules or laws.
• If approached by the press, we are optimistic and are rallying in support of the founding principle of the right to vote. We are not protesting or demonstrating. We have a deep and abiding love of our country and are looking to create unity. Please always maintain an optimistic and energetic tone.
• No one is allowed to go on hotel property unless you have a room in the hotel or credentials to the meeting. If you step onto the hotel property and neither of these criteria apply to you, you will be asked to leave.
• Watch out of rough behavior and please ignore it if possible. If you see someone acting rough or violent, please ask a nearby police officer to remove that individual.
• Any Count Every Vote rally-goer who is perceived to be acting or speaking violently will be asked to leave.
• We are peaceful, law-abiding folk who love our country and its democratic values.

  1. I am in Salem/Keizer, Oregon but with all of you in spirit and power.

    Every vote counts! Senator Obama chose not to be on the Michigan ballot, he should get no delegates. He should only be awarded delegates based on the number of votes he received in Florida. The same for Senator Clinton – this is fair. And, no one made him remove his name from the ballot – his choice.

  2. Good luck, guys! You cannot tell me that Senator Obama has a prayer in this country after the latest video from his longtime friend Father Pflegler. People who saw that were sickened. Are we going to have a coterie of cartoons at the White House?

    Or are we going to let America know that only Hillary CAN!!! Only Hillary can beat John McCain. And sadly, if the DNC refuses to listen, it will absolutely RAIN MCCAIN in November.

    Good luck to every one of you. We will send good vibrations from the West Coast!

  3. Good Luck all. Wish i could be there with you all. As a sick woman i am not able but my heart is there with you and with our next President Hillary Rodham Clinton.

  4. I’m from Tigard oregon. I am with you in spirit and will follow what happens today. Good luck to all of you. I truely believe in what you are doing and back you 100%. And I know I want my vote counted or why bother to vote. Anyway good day to all of you. Hillary 2008

  5. I am with you, my Sisters.

    Hang in there, Hillary. We are not giving up…EVER!!!

    Blessings,
