12. But those who will vote ...
... to put the VP in place will not be off-the-street supporters, nor the MSM.

I realize that some of the more crazed "Hillary supporters" think that if they make enough noise, it's going to persuade delegates to vote in terms of their agenda rather than what is best for the party's chances in November. That's not going to happen.

Those same crazed supporters (who are, despite their grandiose claims, a small fraction of the populace) have been making noise for months - and yet the SDs have been coming out steadily for Obama despite the pot banging.

After eight years of Bush, and an overwhelmingly favourable opportunity to put a Democrat in the WH, the Party is not about to lessen our chances in order to appease a bunch of petulant, disgruntled nuts.
