Hey, D.N.C.: stupidity or perfidy, which is it?

Paraphrasing Senator Clinton: while Senator Obama might be able to beat John McCain in general election, Senator Clinton certainly can. Just look at the swing states or the polls. Just imagine when the Republican attack machine really starts in on Senator Obama.

One would think that the D.N.C. and the Democratic Party organizations (state and national) would prefer to win the general election this November. If so, they will make sure Senator Clinton becomes the nominee, which they can do by reversing their influence on the superdelegates and by treating Michigan and Florida voters like they actually matter.

If winning the Presidency for Democrats is the goal, than choosing anybody other than Senator Clinton to run would be incredibly incredibly stupid. Another theory: in an incredible sell-out of rank and file Democrats, the Party insiders and elders may not actuallly be aiming for a win in November. That would be an act of incredibly perfidy.

So, Dr. Dean, Speaker Pelosi, etc. etc.: which is it? Stupidity or perfidy?

Postscript: I suppose another explanation is lunacy. Remember the Dean Scream?

Donate to Senator Clinton, and practice "voting":
If you think the problem is stupidity
donate five dollars here.
If you think the problem is perfidy donate ten dollars here.
If you think the problem is lunacy, donate 15 dollars here.
Some bizarre combination of the above, make it 25 dollars.

Heidi:

You are now at this very moment where I have been since March 2008. Either you have been keeping these sentiments/feelings to yourself or you have tried very hard to ignore them. Either way, I'm glad to know that I'm not crazy and that there are enough people out there who share the same feelings. I also notice that a lot of prominent women journalist are speaking out about how Senator Clinton is being threated. A little to late perhaps; but I hope that this will help us move in the right direction and I sincerely hope, that the DNC is paying a little more attention today than they were yesterday or the day before. Horay to you and all of the hard working women supporting Senator Clinton. Yours is one of the only blogs or news outlet I read everyday. The rest simply makes me sick.

Heidi,

Actually had to look up perfidy.

I believe their Obama lunacy has rendered them stupid resulting in creeping perfidy which is dividing the party. Whew!

Here's my latest video, "American Idol Obama vs. Supergirl Clinton"

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=n8oHLJSvrFA&eurl

It is about our "presumptive nominee" and why Clinton is a stronger candidate against John McCain.

I would appreciate your support in publicizing the video on your blog, if you feel it is appropriate. If you do, can I request that you ask your readers go to youtube and RATE, COMMENT, and mark the video as a FAVORITE to help further promote the video.

Thanks for your support.

In complete agreement Heidi. One question: what is the theory re: the Democrats intentional will to lose? What is their motivation--so they do not have to inherit the Bush mess and be responsible for it? Curious.

Thank you for all you do for Hillary's candidacy and our democracy.
