    Well... at least Michigan and Florida will count. :lol::lol:

    Hillary has found a way to get herself some votes and try not to be the bad guy but, why in the world Obama agreed to this I'll never know. Is she really that strong even this week? Oh well, it will be fun to watch!

    It's about party unity.

    The Hillanistas deserve Democratic respect.

    They won one hell of a lot of votes, their policies are solidly democratic, and Hillary is falling on her sword to give the Oval Office to the Dems. that has GOT to be one helluva hard thing to do for a woman of her talent and ambition.

    It's almost as though somebody replaced the entire Democratic leadership with Pod-politicians.

    I, for one, am damned impressed.

    No floor fight. Even now, it's possible she could win the Dem nomination.

    Pledged delegates aren't exactly pledged. They have the option to change their vote. If she continued to push the issue, it would hurt Obama.
