Is it possible that the D.N.C. could drive me over the edge? You decide.

I really am annoyed at the "party chiefs" and the beyond-hapless D.N.C. now announcing that they are in a twist about a "lengthy nomination fight." First, I truly believe there's no such thing as bad publicity. It is good for the public to see how engaged and energized Dems are. By November, McCain will have run so many negative ads, nobody will even remember negative ads run by Clinton or Obama now. Second, if Dr. Dean, Speaker Pelosi, and the rest are they are so concerned, they should ask Obama to step down, since it is clear he cannot win the swing states the Dems need in the general election.

They do not care about winning the election.

What I don't get is why. Perhaps they care more about forcing the Democratic party to become the New Libertarian Party than about winning or losing? Or maybe a few GOP toads got in? Or maybe they're just so blinded by Obama-love they can't see straight? Maybe powerful individuals such as Dean care more about their own personal power than the party's well being, and that personal power is on the line right now?

What is clear is that they are putting something else above the party's welfare and/or the desire to win the election with the best candidate.

I wish somebody would ask those idiots why they schedule primaries into June if they believe the candidate must be chosen by March?

And if they believe the candidate must be chosen by March, how can they blame states (like Florida and Mich.) that set early dates so they can count?

All this talk about needing time to prepare against McCain is bull . . . if for no other reason than the value of the publicity.

If they believe that Dems. will lose in Nov. if the nomination isn't sewn up now, than they must think the Dem. party has very little to offer - or that Americans are so slow on the uptake that they need 6 mos. to make a decision between the Dem. and the Rep.
