148. If being honest, ethical, and fair cost us the General....then
Yes...I will stick to principle ANY day. I have looked at all the information surrounding this that I can find...All but one of the Democratic state legislatures voted to move it up...after being sternly warned that there would be stiff penalties for doing so...they laughed in the DNC's face and said "Dare ya" the DNC said okay smart ass!!! The Democratic politicians in the states and the Democratic constituents did not protest, speak out against or do jack crap to stop it. If they are mad I say take it out on your local officials who caused the problem, if you do not like it and do not live in that state..tough shit for you and we know your motives. If you do not like the way the DNC handled it...write them and tell them your beef and make a suggestion on how to penalize fairly for primaries going forward.

Personally I wish the DNC had just cut their pledged delegates in half and striped them of their super delegates. Perhaps that would keep us from having to listen to the ridiculous arguments that are going on...however, somehow I think Clinton and you guys would still be fussing about how unfair it was to take a single delegate or Super Delagate from them.
