A Donation to Retire the Debt = A Slap in the Face to the D.N.C.

(Second in a series. Note, all links take you to Senator Clinton's website where you can donate to RETIRE THE DEBT.)

Believe you me, nobody but nobody is more disgusted with the current D.N.C., particularly with the hapless Dr. Dean. As with all corrupt institutions, I am refraining from having ANYTHING to do with the D.N.C. They make me sick.

Ok, that said, let me explain the following.

A Donation to Retire the Debt = A Slap in the Face to the D.N.C.

The D.N.C. is in real trouble right now. They can't raise money. Senator Clinton's most powerful fundraisers are not going to help them - at least not based on what I have heard them saying - even if Senator Clinton would like the D.N.C. to receive help (Senator Clinton is thinking of the downstream Democrats who rely on the party for assistance in their upcoming elections).

My view is that if the D.N.C. wants one lick of help from any supporter of Senator Clinton the first thing it should do is boot Howard Dean and make it clear that the new chair is somebody who Senator Clinton wants in that position.

In the meantime, we can help Senator Clinton AND tick off the D.N.C. at the same time (smile a slightly naughty smile here). If we very quickly raise a ton 'o money to rid Senator Clinton of her debt, believe me, the D.N.C. will understand where the true power lies. After we raise that money, we hold on to every penny we have unless and until Senator Clinton becomes the nominee for President or clearly takes control of the D.N.C.

I love how you think, and I agree with you 100%. Hopefully, many of your "secret" readers will surprise you.

I am glad they are taking a stand against the DNC and I will do what I can to help Hillary.
Which brings us to the third act in this Kabuki drama: Obama is an illegitimate nominee. Riverdaughter writes:

Hmmm, now we know why the RBC did what the did. She had over 100 delegates from Florida and 73 from Michigan. If he got zero from Michigan and both states had been able to seat with full strength, she could have added over 86 delegates and he would have lost 59. Hmm, that brings her total to 1725 and Obama’s to 1707. Day-um! I wouldn’t concede either.

Thanks for your dual goals--retiring the debt and dissing the DNC. My husband and I have unsubscribed from all Democratic e-mail lists, with pointed references to the injustices of the nominating process and the actions of the RBC. We have not supported any Democratic fundraising except Hillary. Keep up the good work.

My worry about the DNC is that it is only going to get worse. Obama already seems to be taking control of it and putting his people in. How can someone who hasn't yet gotten the "real" votes at the convention start taking over like that? I would think there would be a rule against it. Of course, Donna only cites the rules when they give her what she wants. We all know that.

Hey Heidi, thanks for leading this effort. I just made a small donation and will give more next week.

Yes, everyone....Hillary really needs our support. A woman needs control of her own finances; she does not need permission from or obligation to a man when it comes to cash. Some of us have maxed out; keep reminding supporters who have not....participation is powerful and every gift in any amount is the drop that fills the bucket...if you want to support downstream Dems who support HRC one resource (and there are others) would be
Thanks so much Heidi for all that you do and keeping this going....and your unconditional support of Hillary's autonomy.

This is a strategic window put to use intelligently, bravo Heidi. Let's do it!

I can not BELIEVE the Dems are actually going to leave King Dean in place! He and his pals broke the DNC rules again and again and then paraded around the various "news" programs lecturing anyone and everyone else for breaking rules. Where do the Dems find such pompous creeps, and WHY do they keep them? It took me approximately 2 minutes to find the ACTUAL DNC rules on their web-site: strip 1/2 the delegates for primaries before Feb. 5th, NOT all, just 1/2. Dean broke that rule, too, made a mess of the rest of the primary season, so what do the Dems do? They keep him!

Not one more penny from me for the Dems, that's for sure. Gee, isn't it just a surprise that the poor dears are hurting for money? Perhaps if they'd thought about just how biased they were each and every time they said that Hillary was attacking, when she was merely pointing out the differences between campaign platforms. I guess she was supposed to smile and curtsy when she spoke. Oooops, forgot that part.

Dean has now been marginalized by the Obama/Chicago machine. He has not been able to raise money. He is essentially of no use to Obama.

The problem with the "New Coalition" in the DNC is that is the party Obama. They don't seem to be interested in the democratic party. The old democratic core isn't going to give money because we are ticked off. I always gave more money to the DNC to let them spread it around as it was needed. Not this year.

I have been missing some folks...

Not sure you got the memo but Obama won the nomination.

Either way the DNC acted foolishly and sees that we the people are more willing to support our respective candidates directly and care not what the DNC has to say.

This will go a long way to creating CHANGE in the party. It's got to be kind of scary for them to see obama and hillary getting money while the DNC gets ignored by voters.
