28. So overthrowing Obama in August
sets up a Hillary win in Nov?

I am not trying to be mean but no black would vote for her and most all other Obama supporters wouldn't either out of madness.

Now if the rolls were reversed I am sure the same would happen with Hillary's voters. They consider her the winner and in August they find the rug was pulled out from under them and now Obama is the nominee, he would also lose 90% of her voters.

Let MI and FL get their voice in in June. We can not go any longer then that.
If Hillary then wins I will back her and slowly others will too. But not if this goes to August because she disagrees with every proposal and offer from the DNC and Obama...

History shows that when this goes to the convention the dems lose. There is not enough time to bring the party together, period.
