Heidi,
Is there a link to some sort of "primer" of HOW the convention is supposed to work - something we could use as a link in blogs, etc?
The article in CQ is great exposure, and is already engendering responses (and accusations). Would be nice to respond with factual info and, frankly, I am at a loss.
What's the old saying about the truth? At first, it is denied; then, it is vehemently opposed;, finally it is accepted as fact.
Thank you for all you do.

Once again Heidi, kudos to you and Marc!

There are no words that can adequately express my joy! Not only are those who worked to establish the United States smiling but also, among others, William O. Douglas, Hugo Black, and even Warren Burger. The Burger Court ordered Richard Nixon to turn over the tapes and in doing so preserved the rule of law and democracy. I always thought it spoke well of Nixon that he did turn over the tapes. Forcing the DNC to do no less and respect the principles of law and democracy is a just fight.

The recognition by CQ is well deserved. Kudos again.

"...negotiating a respectful presence followed by a graceful exit..."
I cracked up when I read that. If that's all HRC wanted, what's to negotiate?! LOL. Hillary alias Rocky once said, 'I'm no shrinking violet'.
The Denver Group is fighting for democracy and the people's choice.

Whatever they may change re the DNC rules, they have to be based on Democracy, otherwise voters are disenfranchised and many, many will, sooner or later, either fight or leave the "congregation".

The article is brilliant, Heidi, thank you. The more reactions, the better, even if many are critical, doubts are at least being sewed.

BTW: this publication is no small thing:
wikipedia cites a circulation of
85'000(nndb: 21'000). The readership is 95% of members of congress, members of business and non profit, government affair and the executive branch.

"In 1965, Poynter summed up his reasons for founding CQ, saying "The federal government will never set up an adequate agency to check on itself, and a foundation is too timid for that. So it had to be a private enterprise beholden to its clients."

This will stir up attention, kudos Heidi!
