Denver Post’s video of Cheesman Park rally

Democrats show they are anything but:

Police in riot gear surround
protesters on 15th Street near
Civic Center park in downtown
Denver on Monday night. This
is not America. This is what a
police state looks like. You re
worried about Beijing? This is repression,
one activist shouted. (Jason Halley, Special to The Denver Post)

The Hill tells on Bill

He said: “Suppose you’re a voter, and you’ve got candidate X and candidate Y. Candidate X agrees with you on everything, but you don’t think that candidate can deliver on anything at all. Candidate Y you agree with on about half the issues, but he can deliver. Which candidate are you going to vote for?”

“For those of us interested in politics, it was an endlessly fascinating process already, and it’s still got some twists and turns between now and November,” Clinton said.

Best pundit quip

Never at a loss for biting words, Democratic strategist and CNN commentator James Carville said both Obama and Hillary Clinton have work to do to make sure the overwhelming majority of Clinton backers support Obama. Switching loyalties can be hard, he said.

Of which I am adding the ABC report as it fits this blog’s title

As frustrated Democrats converged on Denver yesterday, some began chanting “caucus fraud,” while others shouted the word “sweetie,” a reference to the time Obama called a female reporter by the same name.

Update with another protest Los Angeles lawyer and Hillary Clinton supporter Gloria Allred finds a way to make her point at the Democratic National Convention

Gloria Alred was fed up with delegation leaders rebuffing her efforts to give Clinton her due. She said she had wanted to honor Clinton’s “historic candidacy” in an address to fellow delegates at their Tuesday morning breakfast, but was turned down.

She tied a cloth napkin around her mouth and distributed a flier asking the question: “Why is Gloria being gagged?”

Later, she said she wants to “fight for Obama, but first I want to honor the votes that were cast for Clinton.”

Party leaders said they fear a nationally televised floor demonstration that would underscore party divisions.

“It seems to be a little more of a problem than I anticipated,” former Democratic Party chairman Don Fowler told the AP. “All you need is 200 people in that crowd to boo and stuff like that and it will be replayed 900 times. And that’s not what you want out of this.”

yeah, Donny – as that other Donny used to say: “Democracy is messy”
