It was interesting that the DNC rules committee was 2/3 Clinton supporters. They followed their by laws to the letter which was reviewed by DNC legal counsel a few days before. the only tough call was the apportionment of the Michigan votes. I think it was fair since the impetus for certain candidates pulling their names off was the committees public sanction of the state's violation. A candidate showing support to party rulings should not be a penalty to their candidacy when the ruling is changed to accept the votes.

Clinton has done what she has promised the people: keep pressure on the party to address FL and Michigan and get every state to vote.

Now, she needs her space to make her decision. We, the voters, need to decide whether we stay or leave this party based on the decision they just made. For me, it is simple - I do not want to be part of a party who stole people votes.

Write in Hillary if it is legal in your state, otherwise vote McCain.

Obama said that in his view the general election campaign starts on Tuesday.

Hillary can either be an asset or a deficit; she will not, however, be the nominee!

Indeed, contribute to Hillary (who is still running ads) so that she can recoup her out-of-pocket campaigning expenses! After all, the Clintons really need to line their pockets with your hard-earned money, NOT!

Hillary, the Queen of Spin and a Legend in Her Own Mind!

The Democratic Party has no idea, what's about to happen if they pick BHO as their nominee. But indeed, it appears they are about to find out.

Once they do they have no right to complain about what happens next, it will be their burden and their loss.

The DNC was very generous to Clinton and her supporters with this. All candidates, INCLUDING HILLARY CLINTON, had agreed that neither Michigan's nor Florida's votes would count AT ALL. What the DNC has done now is change the rules just to appease Clinton supporters, to make the votes count 1/2. Yet you're accusing them of "stealing" votes? they've just GIVEN her votes!

"The 2008 HRC Campaign: A Crisis of Truthlessness"

WHY CAN'T THEY STOP LYING TO US?

They do not have a popular vote lead. Repeat, repeat, repeat and that makes it true. Did she learn that from Bush and Rove? It's like the "35 years of experience" line. The majority of those years were working as a corporate lawyer defending companies against people. Or on the board of the union-busting Walmart. Etc, etc.

The popular vote argument goes like this - count only primaries, not caucuses, and include territories who do not vote in the general while excluding actual states.

If you factor in the caucus estimates (they don't keep actual tallies), Obama leads in the popular vote, and that will not change. So, STOP LYING.

Don't you Clintonites know what is going on here? She's ONLY IN THIS TO MILK YOU OF YOUR $$$$

A protracted race is the only way to continue to beg shamelessly for money ("Go to HillaryClinton.com ").

Sigh. Tired of the lies... so so tired.

(and dont even let me get into Harold Ickes and the whole Michigan, Florida fiasco. I feel so bad for those misled into protesting for Hillary. This whole disaster was her doing. She fanned those flames. She made the pledge like Barack did. Harold Ickes signed off on it - he voted on the damn initial penalty!!! again, don't get me going...)

I think the DNC has been hijacked by ultra-liberals who are borderline socialists, no actually they are socialists. But whatever, Obama will lose big in November, and it will be the Dems fault too.

vote4thebest - you are being duped. She's only become a populist when she realized "hardworking" folks like you were voting for her.

Where was her populism when she was on the board of walmart bashing unions?

And if you are too blind to see how duplicitous Clinton is, then you will fit in perfectly with the Republican party. They enjoy blatantly lying to their supporters.

Hillary really should bring this to an end. It has been over for weeks and she keeps hurting the Democrats.

Ha ha ha ha, it's just hilarious how this media made Obama who spends 460 million on the nomination process is going to help us with the economy, trade, international politics, domestic issues, oil prices, etc. The poor man can't even pick the right church. But his ghost written book was good, I bet he wishes the author did not put in the part about him being a truant, druggie for much of his younger years.

The Clinton folks are feeding this stuff to the press to make it look like they are tortured about whether to go on or not. In the end, I am 100% sure they will fight Obama to the convention. Sen. Clinton's selfishness and self delusion will be a great pity for the Democratic party but this for her it only about power, not about party unity or beating the GOP in 2008

What a disgrace......did we learn nothing from Florida in 2000? The DNC is run by sellouts.

8 more years of inexperience and lackluster leadership:

I can't wait until this country finally puts a good president into office. I'm 35. I spent the last 8 years from the time I was 27, dealing with the lack of leadership of the present administration. Another 8 years and I'll be 43, spending the best years of my life with nothing to look forward to. Life was better with Jimmy Carter. And yet the funny thing about the whole situation is that Americans are the ones responsible for this crap. If we do not have the judgement to elect good leadership, the only place this country can go is down. And I think its pretty obvious that that's where we are presently headed.

The DNC did sell out their people, which does not surprise me at all.

I am sick and tired of all the lunacy and idiocy of the Hillary campaign. The more it moves, the more it commits blunders. Anyway, how will it win when it is composed of only two kinds of people: the naive and idiotic and the carpetbaggers and opportunists. What a way to finish the race.

In desperation Clinton and her disgruntled insiders are trying every hypocritical trick they can to spread FUD and the more she does this the worse she appears. She no longer has a shred of integrity left. The last thing this country needs is another Karl Rove (wearing a skirt).
Hillary appears to be willing to take the entire democratic party down in order to satisfy her unbridled ambition. If she is willing to do that, then she would also be willing to sacrifice the entire country for her ego. Not unlike what Bush did in Iraq.

I agree that the followers of both democratic hopefuls are interesting to say the least. Maybe neither of these cadidates deserves to win. The democratic party should start over and get new candidates. I say go to the Philippines find someone who drives a Jeepney and bring them over, they could do a better job.

Patria, don't you get tired of stupid US Politics on your TV? I mean who cares?

Hopefully the Democratic part will recognize the divisive nature of the primary system. For months the Dems have been fighting and running for the nomination while the Republicans have been running for office.

This primary system may have worked well one hundred or even 50 years ago, but in the age of instantaneous media the process is too long.

As much as I disagree with the republican's ideals, the do understand the business of politics. The Democratic part needs to figure out what is really important and manage it well. It will be a miracle if we don't have another 4 years of failed Republican policies in place because of the amateurish Democratic Party's management.
