What is lost in Hillary for President argument
One thing that I couldnt stop thinking about while watching that Rules and Bylaws committee meeting, when Hillary supporters were chanting, "Denver, Denver" is, what would happen IF Hillary pulled out an upset?
Well, lets think about the scenario.:
Hillary argues, she wins the big states, the popular vote lie, can beat McCain. Superdelegates look at the electoral map and believe the lie that Hillary won the popular vote and they decide, "Hey ya know what, she does deserve to be the nominee, lets give it to her." Superdelegates flock to Hillary, she reaches the magic number first.
Does the Clinton campaign and her supporters think that then the Obama campaign and his supporters would just accept that and say, "Oh well?". Of course not, Obama stands up and says, "We won the most pledged delegates, the most states and we can create a NEW blue majority." We already know that Obama is more organized, has a better fund raising aparatus, stronger grassroots supporter and a better argument: Delegates are what nominates.
So, given the unlikely scenario that Clinton pulls out some big upset, the fight goes to the convention, period. As much talk there is about unity and bringing together the party, Obama and us will not just lay down and allow Hillary to steal the nomination. We all saw the despicable rhetoric and attitudes of her supporters yesterday, imagine if there were a million Obama supporters descending upon the convention in August, organized, funded and protesting in a way that Hillary's supporters did not, with class, dignity and a legitimate argument.
