Nice to see a 'bulldog' like Joe Biden on the ticket! Obama seems to be showing signs of being in the mold of Dukakis, Gore and Kerry..
i.e. human pianta for the GOP-sleaze machine!
Biden sure doesn't help in any given state
though. Bad sign when he might have to help carry traditional Democratic state of Pennsylvania.
Will John McBush be issuing any announcement from one of his 4..whoops...make that 7 homes???

Dear Ms. Sweet,

Please investigate this upcoming documentary. The information about this documentary was posted on a pro Hillary site.

WE WILL NOT BE SILENCED!

The Democratic party has a long history of selecting nominees that do not represent the majority of Americans in this country, despite having core principles that tend to benefit those very Americans. Once again, despite factors swinging to favor Democrats, our party seems destined to choose a losing candidate.

The fatally-flawed caucus system essentially throws the core value of "one person, one vote" under the bus, and it apparently has been manipulated to advantage Obama over Hillary Clinton.

Clinton Democrats have been sounding the alarm since Iowa about the manipulation of the process and where it would lead. The super delegate system was created in order to avert disaster in case the nominating system produced a candidate with no chance of winning. Of course, that system was created with the hope that integrity, principles and backbone would rule the day and delegates might vote their conscience. Fat chance.
We have not given up on Hillary's chances at the convention for a meaningful roll call vote. However, if past actions are an indication of future outcomes, the die may already be cast.

We will not quit fighting. Whatever the outcome in Denver, we will carry on. Our transformation to activist is complete. There are huge challenges ahead and we, the (unpaid) lobbyists for the American people, have an important role in the future of this country.

We may not have the big hairy dollars of corporate America, but we still have our votes. Let's spend them wisely. Stay involved and pledge to only support candidates that represent you...and pledge to toss out the legislators that do not.


"I raise this objection to debate the process, and protect the integrity of the true will of the people. "
