The Democrats Class War

Why is the candidate of Wall Street the candidate that lower income Democrats vote for? David Sirota believes Obama can't adopt Edward's themes of working for working Americans without losing wealthy supporters and sounding too black. This leads to Obama's generalities and his offering hope and dialogue instead. Meanwhile:
Obama, the person who fought blue-collar joblessness in the shadows of shuttered factories, is winning wealthy enclaves. But Clinton, the person whose globalization policies helped shutter those factories, is winning blue-collar strongholds.

Obama, who was schooled by the same organizing networks as Cesar Chavez, is being endorsed by hedge fund managers. But Clinton, business’s favorite, is being endorsed by the United Farm Workers—the union that Chavez created.

Obama, the candidate from Chicago’s impoverished South Side, is finding support on Connecticut’s gilded south coast. But Hillary Clinton, the candidate representing Big Money, is finding support from those with relatively little money.
I also find it interesting that now Clinton is more beatable than Obama by McCain: TIME Poll. Independents, a big part of McCain's support, like Obama better than McCain. Too many people don't like Hillary making their race close.

Hillary does likely have the leadership of the credentials committee pulling for her about seating the Michigan and Florida delegations. That could pull her over the top. That conversation also gets heated as passions run high over the punishment. Really, Michigan and Florida should have a convention or caucus and get legal.

Is Texas really going to go for Hillary when Democrats are likely to pass impeachment resolutions for it's least favorite son? See you at the election and the conventions.

WHEREAS, George W. Bush and Richard B. Cheney have:
(1) Knowingly used fraudulent information to persuade Congress and the American people to support the war in Iraq; and
(2) Repeatedly violated people’s civil liberties and due process – including the use of torture on captives; and
(3) Illegally spied on U.S. citizens without a warrant; and
(4) Violated their oaths of office to “preserve, protect and defend the United States Constitution”;

THEREFORE, we the people and citizens and residents of the _______________ Precinct of __________ County in Texas do hereby call for the U.S. House of Representatives to begin impeachment proceedings against George W. Bush and Richard B. Cheney.
