Part of the reason why I enjoy surfing the ‘Net is because you’ll never know what nuggets of information you’ll come across.

For those of you under the delusion that Hillpatine isn’t up to dirty tricks; that she’s been the ‘nicer’ and ‘more polite’ Hillpatine- let me disabuse you of that notion.

Found this in the comments section over at The Field:

This is the e-mail I received from her campaign:

Dear Ron, Michigan & Florida – Make Sure They Have a Voice! Millions of voters in Florida and Michigan are depending on you to help make sure they have a voice in this race. Will you stand up for them today? Thanks to your efforts, thanks to the hundreds of thousands of people who have already spoken out, the DNC’s Rules and Bylaws Committee is meeting May 31 to make a decision about whether or not the votes in Michigan and Florida will count. Now I need you to urge the DNC to make the right decision on May 31. I need you to remind them that in the Democratic Party, we count every vote. Tell the Democratic National Committee to count the votes of Florida and Michigan. On May 31, the DNC has a chance to make it clear that the people of Florida and Michigan have a voice in our party. The decision is especially critical given the important role these states will play in November. And your voice could make the difference for the millions of people who went to the polls in those two states to make their choice for president. Stand with me today and tell the DNC to count the votes in Florida and Michigan. I have consistently said that every vote must count. It is such an important principle in our party. I really appreciate you standing up for the values we share. Thank you, Hillary Rodham Clinton

She is trying to undermine and de-legitimize Obama’s victory. May that be plain as day to you.

And Brian Francis over at broke it down as to what she’s trying to do with Florida & Michigan:

May 17, 2008
Obama gains 3 delegates today…..

His magic number is now 119 delegates. He picked up a delegate each in Nevada, Kansas, and Maryland.

Hillary’s last remaining argument is that Florida and Michigan should be seated as is. In the highly unlikely chance this happens, you need 1783.5 for a majority of pledged delegates(voted on delegates). This is seen as the threshold Obama or Hillary must pass to be guaranteed the nomination…as the superdelegates won’t overturn the will of the people…i.e…the person who holds the majority of the pledged delegates.

If Obama gets his delegates from Florida….and the 55 uncommitted delegates from Michigan….he will be at 1735.5. To gain a majority, 1783.5-1735.5= 48 pledged delegates are needed on Tuesday to hold the pledged delegate majority with Florida and Michigan seated as is.

Obama and Hillary will basically split the delegates come Tuesday 52-51.

So on Tuesday night, under every scenario, Obama will be the pledged delegate leader. Chucky Todd made this point on the day Edwards endorsed. I did not include Edwards’ delegates in my calculations.

This is why Hillary is pushing the Florida and Michigan votes to be seated AS IS. That would mean uncommitted doesn’t go to Obama, and they are free to vote how they please. So that means Hillary can try to sway them to vote for her.


Just trying to keep the snakes before you, JJP readers. Under no circumstances, whatsoever, can she or any or anyone around her BE TRUSTED.
