The Michigonian candidate
Ladbrokes is now paying $6 on Hillary Clinton going all the way to the Democratic convention. The LA Times is reporting that tomorrow's Democratic party rules committee will make the call over what to do with the disqualified Florida and Michigan delegates:
Clinton loyalists are expected to demonstrate outside the hotel. The Obama campaign has urged its supporters to stand down. "We don't think it's a helpful dynamic to create chaos," said David Plouffe, Obama's campaign manager. "In the interest of party unity, we're encouraging our supporters not to protest."
One Clinton supporter on the rules panel, who asked not to be named in order to be able to discuss the matter candidly, conceded that there was virtually no outcome in the committee that could lead to a Clinton victory. "It's not going to make a difference," the Clinton ally said. "At the end of the day, what we do on Saturday is not going to change the fact that Obama is going to win the nomination."
I don't know which is more like the Manchurian Candidate: Hillary playing the Angela Lansbury/Meryl Streep character rolled into the grasping Sen. Iselin, playing the victim and orchestrating an assasination of the nominee (has she rehearsed the speech for when Obama gets killed?) - or McCain and as a brainwashed sleeper agent for the Communist hard-liners in Hanoi? No Swift boat denials by the vet's for McCain -
