Sharpton is absolutely right. These delegates should not be seated. That incredibly low-class Hillary Clinton wants them so because she's losing and desperate. What a shameful, disgusting woman. The Clintons are crap.

If the DNC seats these delegates, I will abandon this farcical party and I hope Obama does as well.

If anyone just tuned in and has been living on a deserted island somewhere, and hasn't the slightest clue about either Obama or Hillary, all they have to do is take a look at their stances on the delegate debate involving Michigan and Florida.

Simply from this, they can discover that Hillary Clinton wants to break the party rules, include delegates from two states where the other candidates had pledged not to run in and campaign in. Barack's name wasn't even on the Michigan ballot and she wants these delegates to count? Hillary Clinton is nothing more than a low class, undignified, badly-conditioned flea market trash. What an incredible desperate shame she is turning out to be. She can't win delegates legitimately, so she has resorted to promising everything with the ability to deliver nothing, beg, cry, and steal. She's disgusting.

Barack. Dignified. Follows the rules. Didn't vote for the war. Transcends race. Fortified from a life of overcoming adversity as a black man. Supremely intelligent. His mind is far more nimble. Of the utmost integrity. Is married to a magnificent woman who exceeds both Bill and Hillary in every way. Is backed by people who know greatness in the poltical arena more than anyone: The Kennedys. Back by the man who should've been elected President in '04 and who turned out to be correct about Bush: John Kerry. Backed by the most enlightened, most progressive people in this country. Not favored by the rednecks, white trash, underachievers, and excuse-makers. A man of unmatched consciousness, awareness, and versatility. A man who started the campaign as someone not taken seriously but has emerged as the frontrunner and the candidate overwhemingly preferred.

Faced with such a superior adversary, hollow Hillary is showing her true colors. Pure trash.

Please correct me if I'm wrong, but it sounds like you're using the same scare tactics as the Republicans. Why shouldn't Sharpton march if he notices something fishy about this delegate allotment? Heck, I'm about as white as they get and I have thought of protesting the DNC if either the MI or FL delegates get seated or the superdelegates go against the popular vote and chose Hillary. Is it ok for a white person to protest but not a black person? Yes, black people should get ticked off if the first viable black candidate for president gets screwed (sorry for the poor language,but it is what it is) out of the nomination. The fact of the matter is that MI and FL violated the rules. Obama and Edwards went along with the ruling of their party. Hillary didn't. She said she wouldn't campaign in FL but was there "casually speaking" before the primary. That's dishonest any way you try to paint it. Now she wants to get those delegates seated because she doesn't want to disenfranchise voters? Look, like you I get a little frustrated when the race card comes flying out at the slightest little inkling of a perceived insult, but please do not resort to using race to scare people into voting for Hillary. I've read your other posts and you are much more intelligent than that.

ok, let me say this slowly for you ...

Obama

the


Iraq



Resolution

voted

upon




Transcends race huh??? Please, his lackeys started throwing a "you're a racist, you're a racist" hissy fit when Hillary simply stated the truth that LBJ signed the civil rights bill ... that transcends race? I seem to recall Obama himself had to "bury the hatchet" on that debacle.

I think some folks need to put the Obama juice away and detox for a little while. Maybe then they will have more clarity on this campaign.

Bring it on Sharpton!

Actually Sharpton is right on this one. They did break the rules. But I don't know all of the legalities of this decision. Either way, Obama was not involved with it. His name wasn't even on the ballot in Michigan.

Does it actually surprise anybody that Sharpton is a racist? Obama has been trying to break the rules with the superdelegates too. This whole contest comes down to race.
