The scoop from Washington

Obama, Biden, Clinton names to be placed in nomination.

| 4 Comments

DENVER--Here's how the symbolic dance is going to work. According to Obama spokesman Bill Burton, a deal was reached for Barack Obama, Joe Biden and Hillary Rodham Clinton to all be nominated on Wednesday on the convention floor. The deal was cut Monday night between Obama chief delegate counter Jeff Berman and Clinton advisor Craig Smith. Joint petitions will be circulated; each needs just 300 signatures.

Most likely there won't be a whole roll call: Illinois and New York may get to vote--to give
Clinton her due from her adopted state, and, as a bridge to Obama, her native state of Illinois.

What planet are you people from. I work at a union grocery store, the only difference in my store and the other stores in the same company as far as benefits, and pay are that the union employees pay $25.00 dollars per week for nothing. Taxes were much higher with Clinton than Bush. I hope all of you will move to France asap,

Lynn Sweet,

As a woman and a fellow "Sweet".
I watch Hillary tonight to wonder how our support failed such a confident and well deserving candidate for The President of The United States of America.
So please fellow Americans "HEAR MY APOLOGY" to Mrs. Hillary Rodham Clinton I feel my vote just wasn't enough !!! That's 2 elections that have made me feel this way.
I cannot help think what a critical choice was passed over . My vote should count and so should yours.
