1. original from NPR including summary
(text doesn't have all the audio in it, worth a listen if you can, but you can read if you can't do audio where you are)

5. Cool, thanks for the link

This stuff needs to be out there. People need to know what
kind of person Hillary Clinton really is. Then the voters can
determine whether she'd make a good president, or not.

6. That's a different interview
That's from today, where she says they SHOULD count; the link in the OP is from January, where she says 'it's clear this election they're having is not going to count for anything'.

10. oh, sorry, I just assumed it was the one I heard this morning
where they questioned her about FL/MI, superdelegates, etc. Anyone want to compare the two?

2. I'll say it again: Hillary wants to trick MI voters
1. MI voters are told their vote won't go towards delegates. Hillary is cool with it.
2. MI has our faux primary, many dems don't bother voting. Many candidates aren't on the ballot.
3. Clinton determines that it is in her own best political interest to try to squeeze delegates out of MI, and wants to tell the voters "Surprise! Despite what you were told, we are now going to give me delegates based on your primary!"

This MI voter says SCREW THAT.

7. She is a two faced
Democrat that is willingly taking the party down with her.
Seems to me that she is determine to have her way, even
though her way is not the most brilliant, who does that
remind you of?

8. Nothing she says or does not say can change the equities involved
The correct approach to FL and MI is the correct approach in all circumstances. It has nothing to do with candidates, and both of them should just shut up... as contestants, they do not deserve any say in the process. (In fact, they should have the least say, as the ultimate interested parties)
