Clinton Doesn’t Want All Votes To Count After All (not that we didn’t already know this)

From the Daily Kos: Clinton Attempting to Unseat Delegates in Texas.

Clinton supporters are trying to unseat the delegates of Collin County, Texas because they held their caucus a day late due to logistical issues with such a large turnout (3:05 p.m. update: luckily, the attempt failed).

It would be hard for me to be more sickened.  This is completely and utterly indefensible, especially given Clinton’s Michigan and Florida rhetoric.  It just goes to show, yet again, that the desire to seat Florida and Michigan has absolutely nothing to do with making everyone’s vote count.

Not that any of this is new or surprising, really.  Throughout the process she’s been ignoring the votes of basically any state that didn’t go her way anyway, does not want to give Obama any delegates for Michigan even though it’s clear at least some of the “uncommitted” votes would have been for him, and is now dismissing each and every caucus state in her newest argument on why she should win the nomination.  What a wonderful candidate we have.
