    I hate political threads and I really hate starting a new one, yet here I am - I figure if this means what I think it means it can stand by itself.

    Hillary has cancelled her talk show appearances and other public appearances today. That signals to me the towel is about to be tossed in. Am I reading too much into it?

    Are we set for November?

    The Democrats should hope that's the case. All the same, does anyone else feel odd that the Dem nomination will be decided without two large blocs of delegates being seated? To me, it's the same as having a presidential election without counting Florida's and Michigan's electoral votes. Yeah, I know the states bucked the party's wishes, but just sayin'

    She is campaigning in West Virgnia today so that is a sign that, sadly, the ego trip will continue.....

    And for all the bullshit talk about "we raised 10 million in the night after Pa." here we come to find out Hillary loaned her campaign 6.4 million in the past month, which means she has been on life support longer than anyone will admit but she has pressed on simply to feed her ego.

    MSNBC just said the "no appearances" thing isn't true.

    I'm getting real tired of people acting like she won Michigan. If you want to seat Florida, well shit, I guess we can talk about that. It's still bullshit, but we can talk about it.

    But let's stop pretending that she won Michigan. She did not. He wasn't even on the ballot. And she still barely got 50 percent of the vote. For Christ's sake, why in the world do people think she should just be able to put all those votes on her side of the ledger, while he puts zero on his?

    It makes me sick to think Democrats in Michigan and Florida won't be represented in a primary year that, due to the war and the economy, takes on tremendous significance. State party leaders let their constituents down badly and should pay a heavy price but somehow people in these states should be allowed their vote.

    Wait a minute...Hillary 55-Uncommitted 45 was a huge victory for her.

    How about they just dole out the Florida delegates based on the percentage of votes and then split Michigan 50-50.

    Or does that make too much sense?
