Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid seem to have this illusion that they are the Top Kicks in the Democratic Party, and are pushing for a resolution to the Nomination Battle between Hilary Clinton and Barack Obama. Which has me wondering, why? I mean it isn’t like they are doing much to give whoever wins a legitimate shot at winning, so why the rush?
Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said that he, House of Representatives Speaker Nancy Pelosi and party chairman Howard Dean will urge uncommitted superdelegates — the party leaders and other who may choose whomever they like — to choose sides quickly so that there is not a fight at the August convention.

The last primaries haven’t been decided yet, and I can see why the convention fight, but you know, it might just be fun to actually see happen?are worried. I mean the SPECTER OF RACISM has once more taken center stage in the race for the White House, and for some odd reason, they all seem to blame Obama for it. Funny, the biggest nonsense comes from Hilary, and her reminders of how she is first off, White, then second a She. Still, I can see how Pelosi, Reid, & Dean want to avoid a
To begin with, neither Candidate talks about the issues, or about any real SPECIFICS about what their plans are, in regards to Health Care, Education, Economy, Trade, Social Security, Civil Rights, War on Terror, Iraq. They talk in circles, or point their fingers at the other, or at old grandpa John McCain.

Is OBAMA the real deal, who knows, given how everything is so well orchestrated, and Clinton, well she has more excuses for her gaffs, than there are recalls of faulty products from Communist China.
Obviously people are undecided, so let’s put it to the ultimate test. Let the Convention decide, not the Elite, and here is a radical thought, LET EVERY DELEGATE VOTE THEIR CONSCIENCE! Woohoo, now wouldn’t that be an interesting convention? Can you imagine poor Howard Dean having to explain to the Big Shots in the back room that the people actually made a choice, and IT WASN’T THE ONE THEY WANTED?
There is no doubt, the primary process is flawed, but hey who cares? I mean with all the suspect voting machines that will be used come Election Day, it doesn’t matter who the Nominee’s are. It will be decided by who paid the most bucks to have the most electronic voting machines tampered with, and rigged. So, why worry about who really is the people’s choice, and let’s have a good old fashioned donnybrook come Convention Time.
