    Default Former Clinton supporter finally throws in the towel

    I just can't abide the divisiveness any longer. Clinton's antics are giving the Republicans a chance in the Fall, when they never should have had the slightest opening.

    The last straw for me was seeing her explain oh so patiently why her Michigan delegates should be seated since Obama had voluntarily withdrawn his name. Well guess what? Clinton also agreed, voluntarily, in writing, not to participate in that primary. So did Obama. He kept his word. She didn't. And now her deceitful spin is just sickening.

    I found an online petition calling for Clinton to withdraw. Not many folks have discovered this one yet. It's probably one of many, and it's probably completely useless, but it made me feel better to add my name.

    Clinton is desparate. OBama keeps racking up delegates while she's left behind with her mouth dragging on the ground.


    Obama Expands Delegate Lead Over Clinton

    By MIKE GLOVER – 10 hours ago

    DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) — Democrat Barack Obama expanded his fragile lead in delegates over rival Hillary Rodham Clinton on Saturday, picking up nine delegates as Iowa activists took the next step in picking delegates to the national convention.

    More than half the 14 delegates allocated to John Edwards on the basis of caucus night projections switched Saturday to Obama.

    Iowa Democratic Party officials said that with all of the delegates picked, Obama claimed 52 percent of the delegates elected at county conventions on Saturday, compared with 32 percent for Clinton. Some of the delegates picked at Saturday's conventions were sticking with Edwards, even though he's dropped from the race since Iowa held its caucuses in January.

    Democratic Party projections said the results mean Obama increased by nine the number of delegates he collects from the state, getting a total of 25 compared with 14 for Clinton and six for Edwards.

    Twelve automatic delegates bring the state's total to 57. Obama has been endorsed by four of those and Clinton three, with the remainder uncommitted.

    Also Saturday, California's Democratic Party finalized the delegate counts from its Feb. 5 primary. Clinton picked up two more pledged delegates, raising her state total to 204; Obama gained five, raising his figure to 166.

    Counting Saturday's new figures from Iowa and California, an Associated Press delegate tally showed Obama with 1,617 delegates and Clinton with 1,498.

    Obama won Iowa's precinct caucuses in January with 39 percent of the vote, with Edwards narrowly edging Clinton to finish second. Projections on caucus night showed Obama getting 16 delegates, compared with 15 for Clinton and 14 for Edwards.

    "It means the Obama people are very organized," said Iowa Democratic Chairman Scott Brennan. "They have been working very hard for these conventions."

    Brennan said turnout was heavy, with more than 13,000 activists showing up at conventions in the state's 99 counties.

    "Today, Iowa Democrats again turned out in large numbers to reject the failed Bush-McCain campaign and its policies," said Brennan.

    Edwards finished second in the state's leadoff precinct caucuses on Jan. 3, but those caucuses are only the first step in a complicated process of picking the state's 45 pledged delegates to the Democratic National Convention in Denver in August.

    The next step in that process was Saturday with selection of delegates to congressional district and state conventions. Party officials said the results Saturday marked the election of 2,173 of the 2,500 delegates who will go to those convention.

    The epic presidential race between Clinton and Obama has been reshaped since Iowa's caucuses, but is no less intense with every delegate carrying weight.

    "Every single one counts and that's why we've been here organizing," said Teresa Vilmain, a field organizer for Clinton.

    "We've filled all of our slots," said Gordon Fischer, a former Iowa Democratic chairman who is organizing for Obama.

    Rob Tully, a Des Moines lawyer and prominent Edwards backer, sent an e-mail to supporters urging them to remain neutral, but there was clear movement to Obama when the results were tallied.

    "Barack Obama stands for a lot of the same things that John Edwards stood for," said Ro Foege, a state legislator from Mount Vernon who switched to the Obama camp.

    The county conventions are traditionally sleepy gatherings where party leaders have trouble gathering a quorum to conduct business, largely because the party usually has a nominee by this point. With the race still up for grabs, activists jammed school gymnasiums, auditoriums and meeting halls across the state.

    Former Gov. Tom Vilsack, a Clinton backer, spoke to more than 1,200 delegates jammed into a suburban high school gym.

    "The reality is we are united on one thing today, we are Democrats, we are proud Democrats and we are going to elect a Democratic president," said Vilsack, who dropped his own bid for the nomination even before the voting began. "Let us pledge that we will unite behind our nominee — be it he or she."

    Well, every time I try the links I get this error:

    Duplicate entry '0' for key 1


    Very Bizarre. I don't have any popup blockers on. I'll try it with Firefox and see what happens.

    Namaste'

    If Clinton wins it will be interesting to see how many people vote for her. I think she could easily be a worse president than Bush. At the very least she is a Bus clone and it will be interesting to see how many people who are not Bush fans vote for her. Will be the ultimate test of party loyalty in my opinion.

    That being said, I hope Obama wins. While I wouldn't vote for either, and certainly neither is a saint, I think McCain and Obama re two of the best candidates to get the nominations in a while,although that isn't saying much.

    "Please dont lie, cheat or steal...the government doesnt
    like competition".

    What are reparations? Making me pay
    for something I had nothing to do with compensates no one
    who suffered an injustice therefore I would be penalized for
    something I didnt do and someone else would receive a settlement
    for an injury they did not suffer.

    I've been watching the petition site, and I was seeing that error message earlier today too. I guess the site has been down. But it seems to be okay again now:
