Mark Thompson on Sirius radio said he was shown a document by a “highly placed” Clinton supporter. The document outlined a plan wherein if Obama had a 5 point or less lead over McCain in the polls going into the convention, Hillary would sign the nomination form and force a roll call. It went on to state that SD’s are being informed at this time of her intentions.

OK, it’s a rumor, but I like it.

Update

And the lucky boy to be worthier of a key note than Hillary is – Mark Warner

Why? They are really salivating for Virginia. maybe they should check with Kerry and the effect on North Carolina (or South Carolina for that matter) of putting their favorite son – Tabloid Boy – on the ticket.

Ben Smith is careful to make sure that the “reward”  we’re offered in exchange for having our votes stolen doesn’t go to our heads

Clinton “is one of four prime-time headline speakers. We will have a separate keynote speaker,” said Jenny Backus, a consultant to the convention. “Stay tuned.”

So, you bitter women – STFU! Your candidate gets a one in four prime time speeches – don’t get greedy now, OK? Just be grateful and obey!

I am sure this is motivated by the obsession that she not outshine Michelle.

Personally, i never understood the cache of a speech at the coronation. I am kinda fixated on democracy rather than pageants. Which, makes me – I suppose, a dead-ender.

And for the commentator who thinks I need to grow up, here’s that picture again:

Turns out not all of us were amused by the cool hole secret handshake

(and they call Bush the fratboy)

At first, Rick Husong was stunned by the overwhelming wave of negative and sometimes crude reactions to his bid revealed in Whispers last week to build a pro-Sen. Barack Obama movement around a hand salute dubbed the Big-O. Among the hundreds of comments posted on the Whispers site were those comparing it to a gang gesture, a Nazi salute, or worse. “This is how Sieg Heil got started. And, no I’m not saying Obama is Hitler. I just think people should be careful about slipping into a personality cult for a charismatic leader

Then he decided to slip back into delusion

I would call that a raving success,” he says, adding that he plans to make his Big-O the “peace sign of our generation.”

Which is rich – considering that Obama wants to continue and escalate existing wars and start new ones.

I am posting this to use the link as a short answer to “how can you vote against Democratic values?” BS:

Mind you they missed “I never said I’d wthdraw the troops” or “Blackwater got a bad rap”

Cafferty is throwing a K0 size fit on this – asking for a response.

As I don’t know if mine will make it through moderation, here it is:

Yes. In order to satisfy democracy, and DNC’s own rules and traditions:

1972:
Ted Kennedy – 12 votes on first ballot
Kennedy had no chance of winning, but his name was placed in nomination.

1976:
Ted Kennedy – 1 vote on first ballot
Kennedy had no chance of winning, but his name was placed in nomination.

1980:
Jimmy Carter – 1981 delegates
Ted Kennedy – 1225 delegates
Uncommitted – 122
Kennedy had no chance of winning, but his name was placed in nomination.

1984:
Jesse Jackson – 465 votes
Jackson had no chance of winning, but his name was placed in nomination.

1988:
Jesse Jackson – 1218 votes
Jackson had no chance of winning, but his name was placed in nomination.

2004:
John Kerry: 2192.5 Pledged delegates
Howard Dean: 114.5 Pledged delegates
Dean had already dropped out, with no chance of winning, but his name was placed in nomination.

2008:
Barack Obama: 1766.5 Pledged delegates
Hillary Clinton: 1639.5 Pledged delegates

Post yours.
