CNN reports that California Representative Maxine Waters, a longtime Clinton supporter, has switched to Obama and wishes Clinton well [and that we all come together.] Sigh. Here we go girls and boys.
The MSM and Superdelegates have finished out the final Presidential Primary day by exerting their influence on the voters yet to have their say by promulgating four to five different rumors. And now, instead of letting her have her glory, they are accusing her of stealing Obama’s thunder by saying she’s open to VP, which was in answer to a question on a phone call. We’ll see what she says tonight. Gotta go get ready. It’s time for a party to honor Hillary Clinton.
Contact your Superdelegate today, especially if you’re a constituent or a campaign donor, they need to hear from you! Here’s a handy link, thanks to Jeralyn at Talk Left via katiebird at The Confluence.
Superdelegates need to hear from you about why Hillary is your choice and the best choice for President. Comparing Hillary to Obama, she will win the general election against McCain, he will not. How many more of Obama’s shady dealings, inexperienced utterances, and associations with haters will emerge from his closet? Let the SDs know why you support Hillary, tell them your concerns.
Superdelegates can change their minds, or even decide who they’ll endorse anytime up to the Democratic Convention.
It’s about ELECTABILITY! The next few days are critical. Let the people prevail!
We pesky older women just won’t shut the @#$% up and skulk away sedately like they want us to. Harriet Christian’s cell phone-captured video rant went viral after she voiced her frustration about the sorry state of the Democratic Party. At the DNC RBC meeting, 30 party officials decided the fate of over 2.3 million votes in MI and FL. It was just too much for her and millions of us. Here’s her articulate June 2, 2008 interview with Neil Cavuto on Fox News discussing the roots of her anger. She does not give one inch. Give ’em hell, Harriet!

Fox News reports at 11:08 AM that AP reports that Hillary Clinton will acknowledge tonight that Barack Obama has the delegates needed to win the nomination. The Clinton Campaign explicitly say this is FALSE. Terry McAuliffe and Harold Ickes DENY this report AS FALSE. Now, who do you think is responsible for this little announcement?
Ickes on MSNBC:
Obama does not have the delegates and will not have them tonight. It might be over by Thursday, but I don’t see it going to the Convention. Mrs. Clinton continues to make her case. I don’t want to leave any impression about the credential challenge; she’s made no decision. We continue to make the case that she will be the strongest candidate.
He refutes reports that have him saying “it’s over,” declaring he has said no such thing!
Statement from the Clinton Campaign:
The AP story is incorrect. Senator Clinton will not concede the nomination this evening.
Keep going! It’s not over! Have courage. Make calls to Montana and South Dakota. Vote for Hillary! Contribute. Keep going!
Dear Mr. Ickes,
Thank you for being such a clear, articulate spokesperson for Hillary Clinton, the Truth, and the heart and soul of our country at the DNC RBC Meeting.
I came from NYC to participate in the rally, and am one of those who, for some reason appear to be drawn to a cause here that’s bigger than myself. (Mind you, I’ve lived my whole life based on that, so it’s not like I was looking for a cause.) I began my own blog last March in service of her campaign and have dedicated all my time to promoting Hillary and shoveling all the crap, swatting all the flies out there.
I hope that someone is investigating the reportedly documented allegations that keep floating around about improprieties perpetrated by Obama supporters at caucuses, such as coercion, being locked out, pushed out, and bullied; and at polling places, such as campaigning and turning Clinton voters away. By gosh, that very thing seemed to occur at the RBC Meeting where reportedly 3/4 of the audience credentials went to Obama supporters, while Clinton supporters were shut out.
Thank you so much for taking a stand. All these ship jumpers are so weak. Don’t give up. One thing, now that I have your ear: I can’t understand why there’s all this pressure for the Superdelegates to decide. Isn’t their soul raison d’etre to make sure we have an electable candidate if the voters get it wrong? The voters are getting it right enough to win the electoral college. Why are the SDs being pressured to overturn this? What happened to all my longtime liberal Democratic heroes?
Hillary is the best qualified candidate to run and save us from this mess, and I respect her immensely. I watched the meeting on CSPAN after returning on Sunday. Like many of Hillary’s supporters, I can’t believe we’re having another stolen election — and this time at the hands of our own, plus the mainstream media. Our country is in danger, now more than ever.
