I’ve gotten 215 signatures on the petition I created telling the DNC that we resent the process by which Barack Obama appears to have been pre-selected as the Democratic nominee, and that he will not beat McCain. I have Howard Dean’s direct email address, and I will be sending it to him at the end of the day.
Here’s a little anecdote from my weekend. A very good friend, a lifelong Democrat from Connecticut who voted for Lamont in the primary, says that if Obama is the nominee, he will have to vote Republican for the first time in his life.
“He just doesn’t have the experience,” said our friend.
He doesn’t hate Obama. He doesn’t follow the blogs. He’s just a guy who can read a resume.
Food for thought, eh?
Barack Obama has a 37.3% chance of beating John McCain. Believe it or not, this is a slight improvement.
Hillary Clinton has a 100% chance of beating John McCain.
Yes, you heard me.
One. Hundred. Fucking. Percent.
I can haz two-term Democratic Preznit now?
Let’s hope the Democratic Party superdelegates – and the DNC – know how to read polls, or it looks like the “party of the people” will snatch defeat from the jaws of victory once again.
