Hillary Clinton wants to bend the rules...

Although Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton was declared the winner of the New Mexico caucuses, a Feb. 5 state that took its time tallying the results, she wants now that the delegates from Michigan, Florida caucuses are counted. Clinton wants to change the rules set and agreed on by Democratic National Committee (DNC) as well as by herself and Obama last summer, because she is running behind on the number of delegates.

The DNC penalized Michigan and Florida for moving their primaries to earlier dates in violation of party rules. Both states were stripped of their delegates, and the party’s presidential candidates signed a pledge not to campaign in either state. Florida lost 185 delegates; Michigan, 128. I guess Hillary Rodham Clinton was not present during this pledge!

Nonetheless, Hillary Rodham Clinton’s campaign has pushed hard for both states’ delegations to be seated. Why? Because Clinton won Florida’s primary Jan. 29 and Michigan’s Jan. 15, but was the only candidate to appear on the Michigan ballot after the other candidates removed their names.

Well, how can you call this an election?

So, hey Ms. Hillary Rodham Clinton, you can’t change the rules in the middle of a competition, Ms. Hillary Rodham Clinton because you are behind!

Such actions have been taken by the current government (Bush ans co.) over the last seven years and we don’t want another president who bends the rules as it pleases, just to stay in power.
