However when it was clear that she needed those delegates she all of a sudden became concerned that Michigan was being disenfranchised even though they broke the party rules. She shamelessly is advocating the counting of those delegates and wants us to believe that being behind in all the measures of this primary campaign has nothing to do with it.
Now recently the Clinton's are talking up the electoral college as a metric in giving them the nomination even though they are behind in the popular vote, the number of states won and the number of delegates won. Clinton shill Senator Evan Bayh is really talking this creative math up:
“So who carried the states with the most Electoral College votes is an important factor to consider because ultimately, that’s how we choose the president of the United States,” Mr. Bayh said on CNN’s “Late Edition.”
So far, Mrs. Clinton has won states with a total of 219 Electoral College votes, not counting Florida and Michigan, while Mr. Obama has won states with a total of 202 electoral votes.
“Presidential elections are decided on electoral votes,” a spokesman for Mrs. Clinton, Howard Wolfson, said in an e-mail message.
But Mr. Wolfson said superdelegates would also be looking at the popular vote when determining which candidate to support.
Bill Burton, a spokesman for Mr. Obama, said that the idea of using the Electoral College as a metric was specious because the Democratic nominee, regardless of whom it was, would almost certainly win California and New York.TPJ: Yet what has Hillary herself had to say about the value of the Electoral College?
(AP) Senator-elect Hillary Rodham Clinton began a victory tour of upstate New York Friday by calling for elimination of the Electoral College.
At an airport news conference, the first lady said she would support legislation seeking a constitutional amendment providing for the direct election of the president.
"We are a very different country than we were 200 years ago," Clinton said. "I believe strongly that in a democracy, we should respect the will of the people and to me, that means it's time to do away with the Electoral College and move to the popular election of our president."
TPJ: This week we have seen the video of Hillary Clinton and her daughter Chelsea walking calmly in Bosnia and greeted warmly by a welcoming ceremony. Yet she has stated several times in this election that she had to run to their cars, dodging sniper fire as well as saying that there was no welcoming ceremony there in Bosnia. Check out the video footage comparing her comments with the actual footage:
I forgive her for that Bosnia mistake but it is not a single instance, there has been a pattern of exaggeration from her and that is the bigger issue (see my previous post). So will the real Hillary please stand up? Yet how would we know who the real Hillary is even if she did stand up? Does she even know who the real Hillary is?
