As I have been saying, Senator Clinton will emerge from this election year as the most influential progressive politician in the country

For quite some time, I have been telling people that whatever happens with the Democratic Convention and whoever becomes our next President, Senator Hillary Rodham Clinton will emerge from this period as the most influential progressive politician in the country no matter what office she holds. This confirms my long-held conviction on the point.

Superdelegates, who should be given a serious opportunity to decide who will actually be the Party's nominee, might want to consider the importance of having the most influential progressive politician in the country in the Oval Office. Clinton pledged delegates who are considering switching their allegiances if a true roll call vote is held, one with both candidates in nomination, should think about this too. Everybody should remember that no matter what anybody says, the Democratic Party does not have an official nominee yet; no candidate secured enough pledged delegates during the primaries to become automatically the nominee; the position is open.

Thank you Heidi for keeping us informed about the convention.

The Democrats should realize their object is to WIN the election. With Obama they are having trouble. I hope they wake up and realize that Hillary is much more popular than Obama ever was, but I am not holding my breath.

I am reading Dr. Jerome Corsi's book "Obama Nation" and recommend it to everyone out there. It is an outrage that a candidate for president was not "vetted", has continually lied to the American people about his birth, associations and ties to foreign countries, schooling in an Islamic country, possible dual citizenship, radical philosophies and much more. I hope this information gets out there in time so that the American people can decide for themselves whether they want Obama as their president.

Isn't this why some people worked so hard to oust her from the primaries? They want to keep up all this stealing and cheating.

Obama would probably be much more cooperative for them to continue.

I started reading the article without looking at the by line and after a sentence or two I said WOW! Who’s this??....if it's a WSJ staff writer, they have some explaining to do since WSJ cheered all the abuses on!! Then I saw it was Hillary! Well who else? Thank God for Hillary Clinton! Other wise I fear we would lose even the memory of what statesmanship looks and sounds like . Hillary is a genius, she has an instinct for social justice that is immutable and a hell of alot of common sense. All this makes her a towering figure.

I have been telling delegates for months to get in on the HRC ground floor. Hillary may have her hands tied at the moment , but events and the caliber of her leadership will cause her to prevail .The more they try to push Hillary down , the more political capital she'll eventually have.

The timing of this article is not random...it tells me, among other things, the economic picture is far worse than what is being admitted and IMO, Hillary knows the elite of both parties and their backers's plan is an expansion of the Bush Iraq / Katrina shock and awe economics to here...to state side. In this article Hillary has put both parties on notice that she will fight it.

FDR had the Depression to help him make the Upper Crust do the right thing. Let's hope it won't have to get that bad before the actions Hillary calls for are heeded.

Thank you for your blog and efforts Heidi!

Senator Clinton is the reform candidate thus much feared by the anti-reformers in the Democratic Party.

The “this” of the current post is wonderful. Hillary thinks, treats others with respect, and is trying to increase our awareness of the issues facing our country. The “this” of yesterday shows someone who treats others with disdain, and panders to fear and emotion to control.

The Democrats still have a chance to nominate the best candidate to win in November and that is Hillary Clinton. If they do not nominate the best candidate what they are saying to the American people is: We like George Bush’s policies and we plan to make sure those policies continue in force. We like fear and corruption and we want it to continue. That’s why we selected our nominee.

Heidi, I come eagerly to your blog site several times a day so I can read your articulate and intelligent posts. They are refreshing. Would it not also be wonderful if we had a president like Hillary whom we would want to listen to or whose writings we would want to read every day?

I agree that Senator Clinton is the most powerful, influential progressive, and therefore feared candidate. She has been minding the store for the American public and knows that things are much worse than the leadership of both parties and their corporate backers will let us know.
The stakes are high and the consequences are serious. I see no other option than the continued financial meltdown with taxpayers being stuck with the bill and influential players grabbing profits before the bottom drops.
