If Hillary only has one flaw…
…it’s that she cares too much [pause to wipe tear].
From the American Prospect’s Ezra Klein, Hillary Clinton is now calling on her fellow potential nominees to re-instate the delegates from Michigan and Florida that were stripped by the DNC when they violated their rules and moved their primary ahead of the 2/5 limit.
I hear all the time from people in Florida and Michigan that they want their voices heard in selecting the Democratic nominee.
I believe our nominee will need the enthusiastic support of Democrats in these states to win the general election, and so I will ask my Democratic convention delegates to support seating the delegations from Florida and Michigan.
Of course, I’m sure it has nothing to do with the fact that Obama and Edwards weren’t even on the Michigan ballot, and are prohibited by the DNC from campaigning in Florida, where Hillary has had a lead since last January, preventing them from duplicating the kind of success they had in Iowa and (soon-to-be) in South Carolina.
You have to wonder if, at a certain point, Hillary just gave up at trying not to appear craven, and how gullible the people are who believe that Hillary has anyone’s interests other than her own in mind.
