The DNC Rules committee is presently making a backroom blunder as they take a VERY long “lunch break” in a hotel in Washington D.C. They were supposed to be back to discuss and debate the outcome of the Michigan and Florida delegates.
No question the DNC Rules Committee has finished eating lunch. They were supposed to be making their deliberations in public in front of the cameras. They’re likely deciding on what they are going to let the public see as far as what they are going debate and vote on.
For those Americans who are not bothering to watch this so-called open forum, and they care about who will be the President of United States, they may want to tune into CNN or click here to watch the DNC Rules Committee live. When you open this link you will see a small screen that you need to click to what the DNC Rules Committee in action and without commercials.
I think the DNC is making a huge mistake stopping in the middle of the day for “closed door sessions”. This sets a bad tone for Americans and the voters may believe that the whole process and decision was all back door.
So far the Clinton supporters in the meetings are urging that they get 73% of the delegates in Michigan where Barack Obama was not even on the ballot. The Obama supporters are supporting the notion that ALL delegates from Michigan and Florida are seated even if that means they will lose some delegate ground to Hillary Clinton and her campaign.
From my point of view, and from what I’ve heard from the Clinton supporters today, it seems to me that they want to keep changing the rules until they win. The Clinton supporters seem very frustrated because they know what is coming. Michigan and Florida broke the DNC rules and they are going to suffer for it.
Not only that, the Clinton campaign has been using language that blames the DNC for the mess in Florida and in Michigan when was the officials at the state level that decided to ignore the wishes and rules set by the DNC regarding their primary voting dates.
There are 368 delegates at stake in this deal, and looks like even if Hillary gets EVERYTHING she wants, she STILL won’t have enough delegates to win the Democratic nomination.
They better get back in front of the cameras soon, or it’s going to be messy.
