Clinton Donors Threaten To Withhold Funds From DNC
Democrats in Michigan and Florida struggled Friday to resolve the impasse over their disputed January primaries, coming up with a plan to hold a June primary in Michigan while remaining deadlocked in Florida.

Reflecting how tense the situation has become, influential fund-raisers for Senator Hillary Rodham Clinton have stepped up their behind-the-scenes pressure on national party leaders to resolve the matter, with some even threatening to withhold their donations to the Democratic National Committee unless it seats the delegates from the two states or holds new primaries there.

8. so then would this mean.......
that hillary is actually trying to buy the votes she needs to catch up to obama? the simple fact that she is willing to ALLOW anyone in her organization or representing her organization, in any form, to threaten the national party displays the lengths to which she is willing to stoop and the power she intends to wield with fear and intimidation and extortion. shameless.
