Hillary Campaign Says No To New Michigan Delegate Proposal
Advertisements [?]
Edited on Thu May-08-08 01:36 PM by IWantAnyDem
Why am I unsurprised? We are now fully into Hillary's final firewall being 2012. There can no longer be any doubts whatsoever, she wants McCain to win so she can run again in 2012.

Camp Hillary is rejecting the new plan floated today by Michigan Dems that would seat the delegation by awarding 69 delegates to Hillary and 59 to Obama.

Hillary spokesperson Isaac Baker emails over this:

"This proposal does not honor the 600,000 votes that were cast in Michigan's January primary. Those votes must be counted."

This is beyond the pale.
