Just caught this one off huffington post:

This is contrary to any democratic ideal I have ever come to believe.
I am amazed how thoroughly ruthless Camp Clinton has become. They are going to do a full court press of the Rules and Bylaws committee to force the seating of Florida and Michigan with out regard toward the other 48 states who actually followed party rules. " Iowa you don't count you don't count Nevada" or any other state in the union who followed DNC guides and set their primaries according to the DNC direction. This is truly of mockery of all Democratic Party Members.

Camp Clinton may seek to totally circumvent states rights. We Floridians were bamboozled by our legislatures. We Floridian will deal with them come re-election time. I never saw the Clinton's raise so much as a peep over hanging chads in 2000. Now after the possibility of the election not turning in the favor of Clinton, the rights of voters matter. The outrage was not there in December 2007 when the DNC announced Florida and Michigan would not be sat.

This will destroy the party. We cannot have another stolen election. Whether it be a Primary or GE. The Slash and burn attempts will alienate not only Black but youth and crossover independents. After so many have registered and worked to engage Americans once again in the process we can not withstand even the slightest hint of taint to our process. We must have confidence in the process of elections. That is the only way we will win in November. We will be too divided to attract anyone. This will drive away the independents in droves
Republicans act this way not Democratic Candidates . The whole line about this is what we expect from the re pubs in the GE is just another Rovian fear tactic. It is a bullshit line that justifies wretched behavior of one candidate toward the another. This is a line no Democratic contender should cross.
