Well, Which Is It?

CNN: "Dem Delegate Deal Could Boost Clinton"

NYT: "The advice from Democratic Party lawyers is a blow to Senator Hillary Rodham Clinton’s efforts to seat the full delegations from Florida and Michigan."

Since she wants to make sure all the voters in Florida and Michigan count, can we find out, how many people did not vote because of the rules violation. I'm told that Florida alone has 4 million voters,only 1.7million voted. What about them as well as the voters in Michigan. I think the Clintons are more than willing to destroy the party in order to win. Why does she think she is the strongest, candidate, is it because she thinks she will get the black vote anyway. I don't think so, if they take this from Obama, say hello to 4 more years of Bush,it will be the death of the party. I'm praying this is over by next Wednesday, so Obama and true Democrats can really get focused on beating McBush

Always go with the pithier, easier-to-read headline from the television news network. You can't go wrong with a three-word headline with alliteration.

I'm sick and tired of the argument that the votes shouldn't be counted the way they stand b/c "many people stayed home b/c they knew their votes wouldn't count."

It is our CIVIC DUTY as citizens of this country to go out there and vote, PERIOD. One should not decide to go and vote only when a vote "might matter." I'm from California, and do you know for how long my vote hasn't "Counted" b/c by the time they get to us, the elections have been decided? This NEVER stopped me from voting b/c even though my vote won't have any effect on the outcome, guess what? I need to be a responsible citizen and go out there and vote! Although discouraging that your vote for the presidency won't count, no one FORCED anybody not to go out there and vote. In fact, if my state's votes would've been stripped, I would've gone out there with even more conviction, to make my point... then I'd really have a reason to complain!
Furthermore, one can't say, "there's 4 million people in Florida and only 1.7million voted" b/c not everyone votes- EVER... in fact, I am told by my cousin who lives out there in Florida, that this election still brought out record number of people out there in Florida...I think b/c of another important proposition on the ballot... (that's right, there are other issues to vote on besides the presidency)!

So those of you who stayed home, cry me a river...

Guess what Rhonda? Say hello to 4 more years of Bush ANYWAY... Obama WON'T win the G.E.! ...and what do you mean, "If they take this from Obama..."???? NO ONE has reached the delegate count...HELLO! The rules DON'T say "whoever's closest..."

One other point: Michigan was set and ready to do a revote, w/ an agreement from everyone, from the DNC to Hillary's camp...guess what? Your boy Obama and his savvy lawyers blocked it! Hmmm, what is he afraid of? I thought the people's "voice" should be heard? I guess not when it's not convenient to him...??? And do you seriously think that if Michigan and Florida don't get seated, that they will have the slightest desire to vote for Obama? ...Stop drinking that Kool Aid.

I DON'T KNOW WHY THIS CONVESATION IS STILL GOING ON.. THE MICHIGAN AND FLORIDA VOTERS MUST BE SEATED. IT WAS NOT THE VOTERS THAT SCREWED EVERYTHING UP IT WAS THE REPRESENTATIVES OF THESE STATES THAT STUCK THEIR NOSES AND MESSED IT UP. WHY SHOULD MILLIONS OF PEOPLE NOT COUNT JUST BECAUSE IT IS INCONVENIENT TO OBAMA. HE HAD THE CHANCE AND HE BLEW IT. HE HAD THE CHANCE TO HAVE A RE-VOTE. HE HAD A CHANCE TO KEEP HIS NAME IN THE MICHIGAN BALLOT AND HE BLEW IT. I THINK IT WAS BECAUSE HE KNEW THAT PEOPLE WERE NOT GOING TO VOTE FOR HIM REGARDLESS. IF ANYONE ACTS AS IF PEOPLE IN MICHIGAN DON'T COUNT IT IS OBAMA. HE DID NOT WANT TO DISCUSS IT UNTIL IT WAS CONVENIENT FOR HIM. NOW THAT HE HAS CROWNED HIMSELF KING AND WINNER OF THIS PRIMARY HE DECIDES THAT MAYBE HE SHOULD GO AND TRY TO MAKE AMENDS WITH PEOPLE IN THESE STATES. NOW, HE REMEMBERS THAT THEY COUNT. NOW THAT HE THINKS IT IS IN THE BAG. HE IS A HYPOCRITE. AND ALSO, IN FLORIDA WHEN THERE WAS TO BE NO CAMPAIGNING GUESS WHO DECIDED TO GO AHEAD AND RUN A COUPLE OF ADS THERE........OBAMA. SO CRY ME A RIVER. SIT THE DELEGATES ACCORDING TO HOW THEY SHOULD BE SEATED. IT IS B.S. THAT PEOPLE SAY THAT THE DELEGATES WILL BE SEATED BUT WILL NOT MATTER. THEN WHAT KIND OF VOTE IS THAT. IT IS THE SAME THINGS AS IF THEY DID NOT COUNT THEM.

But Willy blowing bubbles,
making crazy kinds a trouble,
cuz the Crazy white lady like the green

Crazy lady just like the trees...
laying in the shade with the breeze.
But the sun shine through,
and her lies do to,
cuz the Crazy lady just like the trees.

Crazy lady just like the wind...
She huffs and she puffs,
calling all their bluffs,
but she destroy everything in between.
cuz the Crazy lady just like the green...
and the Crazy people try'n ta come clean....

Wow. Who unlocked the asylum doors?

CNN has enjoyed a ratings boost ever since this election cycle started. They would love nothing better than to see this thing drawn out until Christmas.

CNN is an irresponsible organization and is yet to apologize for their role in the pre-war propaganda.

Tonight they even tried to create another flap similar to Rev. Wright. Shame on CNN.

Obama is doomed now. There is no doubt and there is nothing to discuss.

I have nothing to say here, other than that I changed my blogging-name to Tully from little-cicero on a whim (and perhaps after some rational calculation.

Background: Tully was Cicero's middle name, and the one by which his friends called him. Since I am no longer little, I am now tully.
