Clinton Might Cause Trouble at Convention
For those who miss those halcyon days when Hillary Clinton was impeding Barack Obamaâ€™s journey to the White House â€“ the drama may not be over yet. In a move that should surprise no one whoâ€™s followed the uninhibited ambition of the Clintons, Hillary Clinton has been caught telling a California reception that she thinks it could be good for the party if her delegates went ahead and nominated her at the upcoming convention.
Thatâ€™s right. Clinton believes Democrats could benefit if her supporters made a symbolic show of support for her. She called it â€œcatharsis.â€Apparently, Clinton voters will happily flock to Obama just as soon as theyâ€™ve had the chance to voice how much theyâ€™d prefer if a different candidate received the nomination.
The Obama campaign has, as you would expect, released statements saying the Clintons fully support Obama and thereâ€™s no ill will between them.
Clinton does not have the delegates to win the nomination â€“ barring a shocking turn of events. But she does have the delegates to make the convention more interesting than expected. Weâ€™ll see what happens.
