Will Hillary Clinton Hijack the Democratic Convention from Barack Obama.

Hillary Clinton's name to be placed in nomination at convention - Los Angeles Times

WASHINGTON -- A Democratic National Convention that is supposed to showcase Barack Obama will devote a considerable amount of time to Hillary Rodham Clinton and her family, with the two campaigns announcing an agreement Thursday to formally enter her name into nomination.

The development means that during the state-by-state vote on a nominee for president, delegates will have the option of choosing Clinton rather than Obama -- giving supporters a chance to cheer her candidacy one last time.

Senator Hillary Clinton

I was shocked when I heard this. A few weeks ago it didn't look like the Clintons where going to play a large roll in the Democratic Convention. Now a lot of time has been given to Hillary Clinton and her family, President Bill Clinton and their daughter, Chelsea Clinton.
The first thought that came to my mine, was that Hillary will try to hijack the Democratic Convention from Barack Obama and take the nomination.

What is Hillary Clinton up to?
On Aug. 6 2008, Asked whether or not her name would be placed into nomination at the convention, Clinton did not rule out the possibility and said, "Senator Obama and I share the goal of ensuring that the voices of everyone who participated in this historic process are respected." Did we hear Hillary say this same thing when ask why she would not just drop out and let Obama finish the primaries? Yes!

How did Hillary's name get placed into nomination? The agreement between the Obama and Clinton advisers was the culmination of
more than two months of talks between the two camps and followed intense pressure from the former First Lady's aggrieved supporters.
So this happened because of intense pressure from Hillary Clinton.

But the deal was a blow to Mr Obama's early hopes that Mrs Clinton would direct her 1,896 delegates to join his 2,230 in a unanimous acclamation of his nomination as the first black presidential candidate of a major American party.

In public Hillary shows one face. "Sen. Clinton is 100 percent committed to helping Barack Obama become the next president of the United States." But in private she hopes the development means that during the state-by-state vote on a nominee for president, delegates will have the option of choosing Clinton rather than Obama.

I think this is what the Clintons are praying for. Barack Obama might have just shoot himself in the foot.

  1. The political process disappoints me constantly. If Hillary happens to sweep this out from under Obama because of the way the Democratic party functions I think it will be the worst possible result for the dems.

  2. First of all, if you're going to blog, learn the proper usage for words. She's not going to have a "roll" at the convention, she's going to have a "role". (Look it up if need be.) Second, the Clintons have ALWAYS demonstrated that their first, second and third concerns are the Clintons. And they only care about three. If they can steal this thing from Obama, they will. If they can't, they will at the very least suck as much personal and political capital from this event as is humanly possible, Obama and the country be damned. They are complete and total sociopaths, and should always be treated as such.

    I for one would think that to be rather funny. It won't happen, but it would be funny if it did.
    Perhaps this is some sort of agreement as a result of not picking her to be the VP.
