Clyburn Speaks For Me ... well, maybe he's more polite than I am

Just watched Countdown with Keith Olbermann. There was an interesting interview with Majority Whip James E Clyburn from South Carolina. Mr. Clyburn talked about the growing number of African Americans who are becoming very upset about how Hillary Clinton is campaigning and the remarks of former President Bill Clinton. He claimed that he was getting a lot of phone calls and letters about this ... as well as folks coming up to him to talk about it. They are also worried that the super delegates are going to ignore the popular vote. Many people who voiced their concerns with Mr. Clyburn said that they thought the Clintons were “committed to doing everything they possibly can to damage Obama to a point that he could never win.”

Well, I know many pinky whites like me who feel the same way.

And ... okay, THREAT ALERT ... if the Democratic party's super delegates go against the popular wishes of regular folks/voters, I predict that it will cause an irreparable breach between their party and our checkbooks.

Stumble It!
