Hillary Wants Votes to Count! (if they help her)


Hillary is out there today railing on Obama saying he doesn't want the voters of Michigan and Florida to be heard. I guess she's making this statement based on the fact that he's not in favor of a do-over vote in those states, wants to keep the results as they are, and seat those delegates at the convention. Yeah, boy is he out to help himself. That jerk wants to keep in place the results of the elections THAT HE LOST in Michigan and Florida.

Hillary gets to play the "I'm a bigger person than you" card by crying for a re-vote even though she won those elections. It's really politically risky to scream for a re-vote the day after both states said their efforts to get that done were dead in the water. She gets to keep things the way they are and at the same time look like an advocate for "voter rights."

Obama had this to say about it to Anderson Cooper:

"Senator Clinton, I have to say on this, has been completely disingenuous. She said when she was still trying to compete with the votes in Iowa and New Hampshire that Michigan and Florida wouldn't count," he said. "Then as soon as she got into trouble politically and it looked like she would have no prospects of winning the nomination without having them count, suddenly she's extraordinarily concerned with the voters there."

"I understand the politics of it, but let's be clear that it's politics," he added. "I want the Michigan delegation and the Florida delegation to be seated. And however the Democratic National Committee determines we can get that done, I'm happy to abide by those rules."

Hillary could also yell at the DNC for not wanting to count the votes. Remember, they're in federal court arguing they have a constitutional right not to seat those delegates.
