The nerve of the woman

Hillary Clinton's claim that she might appeal against the Democratic Party's decision to award only half the delegates or Florida and Michigan is ludicrous when you look at the issue of Michigan itself.

The Democrats said that neither Clinton or Obama's names should be on the ballots, and Obama ensured his name was not on the ballot whilst Clinton ignored this ruling and got her name on the ballot. Is it any wonder she on 70% of the delegates in Michigan when the other candidate was "other".

What is clear is that 30% of Democrats in Michigan wanted anyone else rather than Clinton. That speaks volumes.

What ever does it say about her that she is prepared to ignore rules, go against her party and then moan that its not fair ?

She is so consumed by the need for power that she is blind to the realities of her position.

The sooner she is out of the race, the better.

I wonder how willing she is going to be to have to give up

So the Democrats were wrong by denying the voters of Michigan the right to vote in the primary because of something that the Michigan Legislature did, and Obama stupid to obey them. I think that alone justifies Hillary's claim to the Michigan delegates.

It's true that the Republicans stiched Florida and Michigan up but she has no claim to the delegates because the campaign wasnt run fairly there....Obama's name wasn't even on the ballot in Michigan so how people can say she has fair claim to all the delegates is beyond me....

Hilary has a massive case that she has won the Democratic nomination and it is false to say that Barack Obama has won. He hasn't and he hasn't enough delegates to take him over the winning line.

Senior Delegates will have to be called in to cast their votes for who they think the ordinary voter would vote for in a contest that is seeing Republicans losing the election even before it starts.

You are wrong to write Hilary off and you are wrong to say she doesn't have a case to complain.
