Hillary Will You Concede or Try To Steal The Election?

AAPP: It's time for Vernon Jordan to step up to the plate and tell Hillary it's over. (H.T VByers) Not many people believe the myths of keeping Hillary in the race anymore. Reality check Obama won Texas. If the Huffington Post report is right, maybe Vernon Jordan will tell her sooner than later.

The Huffington Post reports, in a recent, widely circulated New York Magazine piece, it was noted that, "according to Hillary's adjutants, the people most likely to have sway with her on this topic are not party elders at all but instead her fiercest loyalists, those who've won her trust over the years by dint of their unwavering support."
Familiar names from the annals of Clintondom are mentioned: Terry McAuliffe, Vernon Jordan, Rahm Emanuel (likely the only person in this club who is also close to Obama). So, too, are prominent endorsers such as Pennsylvania governor Ed Rendell. "If one of her major African-American endorsers, like Stephanie Tubbs-Jones, told her it was time to quit, that would be very powerful," adds a senior Clinton adviser. Oh, and let us not forget her husband.

And in the New York Times this weekend, two such advisors apparently set the terms of their support for Clinton continuing in the race.

It's Not Over Yet

As reported by David Paul Kuhn If the fight over whether to count the results in Florida and Michigan makes it to the Democratic National Convention, Hillary Clinton will not have enough pledged votes on the 169-member Credentials Committee to deliver a majority decision in her favor, according to an analysis conducted for Politico.

Her only hope of getting the key committee to vote out a “majority report” supporting her position rests on her ability to persuade an as-yet-undetermined number of the 25 members appointed to the committee by party Chairman Howard Dean to cast votes for her position.

The DNC’s Credentials Committee consists of 144 pledged members (Florida and Michigan are not included) plus the 25 party leaders and elected officials appointed by Dean. The 25 Dean appointees include a mix of Dean loyalists, Obama supporters and at least several individuals who have endorsed Clinton. Read more about Hillary's ugly plans.
