DNC rules and bylaws is on cable news right now.

Clinton side (Ausman plan) is seat all FL delegates w/ full votes but open to half a vote ......

I belive Obama dude just said he agrees on the Ausman plan with half a vote!

This lets HRC gain 19 delegates so its an an "extraordinary concession" from Obama -- we need unity etc.-- weneed to fight the general election starting now.

FINALLY some real fucking unity!

Entire room is clapping.

thankfully the top echelons of the Obama campagin don't listen to those Obama supporters who were against doing anything, became prissy sticklers for silly rules, and who claimed the whole HRC argument and appeal to this committee was shameful, bizarre, outrageous, evil, truly bitchy and witchy etc.

It's about the people.

Unity !

unPC you are such a sore loser. To think that Hillary Clinton would be the nominee right now if it hadn't been for all your obnoxious comments.

Sure, let's give Hillz the MI and FL delegates since hers was the only name on the ballot. That seems fair and democratic in a North Korea-Syria-Cuba kinda way. Then let's multiply by four and add in phantom delegates from pretend primaries in the Canadian provinces. Ya know, she might actually have a shot at winning this thing.


BTW, isn't "DNC" what they call an abortion in England?

The Times did give props. The student newspaper was mentioned in their story.

@3 Just to be clear: Obama removed his name from the Michigan primary ballot because they were not following the rules and the numbers were not going to be counted. It was a political decision on his part. There was no conspiracy to keep him off as you seem to believe.
