Although I don't agree with many things this man stands for, I certainly agree with him here.

You know, Teddy No-Pants should really pipe down and stay out of it. He's showing himself to be a huge hypocrite. He challenged Jimmy Carter for the Dem. nomination AT THE 1980 CONVENTION.

From the Miller Center of Public Affairs website:

"Kennedy came close to defeating Carter as the party split into two wings. The day after the president lost the New York primary, a tabloid headline brayed, "Big apple to Carter: Get Smarter!" The president limped into that summer's convention weakened by the troubles at home and abroad, but he did have more delegates than Kennedy, and if they stuck to their pledges to vote for him, he would win the nomination. Kennedy desperately tried to get the convention to repeal the system of pledged delegates, arguing that if delegates could vote freely, they would dump Carter. But the convention refused to change its rules and Carter won renomination."

Does Teddy No-Pants have an incredible amount of nerve running his mouth now, or what?!

Mmm...no. He's just calling it how he sees it today. You're a Clinton supporter so I'm betting you can appreciate the Convention's right to enforce the Rules.

The Dem. rules -- in just about every aspect -- are a mess. As much as I support Hillary, I'd be dismayed if she pulled a Teddy No-Pants at the convention unless there was some overwhelmingly clear reason to do so. It's undignified.

But for the Dem. bigwigs like Teddy to keep dissing Hillary when they will leave no stone unturned to get what THEY want, individually and collectively, is really hypocritical. I do hope that Hillary will cite campaign and physical fatigue to beg off campaigning for ANY Dem. interest.

She won't. It will ruin the rest of her career, and she's too smart and has worked way too hard to get where she is. That said you can't fault the Dem's for how they treat the loser - they're consistent, they treat all losers the same, like drops of blood in the water.

Until they muck things up in the next election and then they wail about how they want the previous losers back to come to the convention and make everything nice again! Hahahahahaha

Hillary as VP would be lousy idea. She is not one to take the back seat. Ever. With anyone. She is a Senator! That is a helluva lifetime achievement! If she doesn't get the party nomination this go round . . . she still has a great career ahead of her. (And I don't think she will get the nomination . . . but I think she is going to try to the bitter end).

I support Hillary Clinton

I'm saying no to Hillary Clinton being Vice President, because I want her to be the president of the United States.

Woot Hillary
