People clamoring for DWS to be removed demonstrate their lack of DNC history.

And they likely are not regularly involved in the Democratic Party. They are outsiders clamoring for members of an organization they are not a member to change their rules and leaders.

Check out the DNC Wikipedia

Notice how long DNC chairs tend to serve. I am not a fan of Debbie Wasserman Schultz. And I look forward to her leaving but it can wait until they have their regular election to fill that and other positions which don't happen until next year.

The impact imo of the DNC during the general election is nothing compared to the Democratic nominee's campaign. The DNC acts as a subsidiary at that point.

By the way. Sanders continues to make enemies by making his outrageous statements when his status will be in doubt after the election.

I wasn't the biggest fan of DWS, but the railroading that she has received on behalf of the Sanders campaign is completely unfair. Everyone tends to forget that 2012 saw a viable republican nominee get completely waylaid by a long debate schedule. Romney got pushed so far to the right (hell, he was to the right of Rick Perry on immigration by the end) that he never fully recovered from that.

People forgot that though when they wanted to cry foul because a back bench socialist needed some free advertisement among democrats. Maybe the next outside candidate can do something and be known for that.

Wow! That handshake showed Sanders lack of respect. Can I say he is a jerk? I probably would get alerted if did more.

probably b/c she said that the Pope hadn't invited BS to come.

Here you can see at about 15 seconds mark.

was spot on when she stated that the "invitation" violated protocol and was steeped in American electoral politics.

One of the most un-presidential moves. Not at all statesman like.
