I think Rolling Stone magazine has some credibility as a source, but I also know some people automatically put anyone who is not fully in step with his or her views in the enemy camp. This is a short read that gives an objective look at what happened:


According to various reports, Sanders supporters yelled, threw chairs and booed Clinton surrogate Barbara Boxer, incensed by a process they saw as rigged in Clinton's favor. Clinton backers responded by calling for the disruptive Sanders delegates' arrests.

According to the Nevada Democratic Party, the Sanders campaign had a sizable advantage in delegate slots (2,124 to Clinton's 1,722) going into the convention, but it failed to fill all of those slots only 1,662 Sanders delegates showed up on Saturday, compared to 1,693 Clinton ones.

1. so I was right

if you CANT play by the rules and register correctly and by the right date you shouldn't be trusted to do anything complicated like draw a LINE to an arrow or make an X in a box.
