Update: The Rules Committee registration process is closed. Apparently they chose too small a room for Democrats to attend. [We added a video below.] If you are one of the many excluded by the Rules Committee’s too small venue join us outside the Marriott Wardman Park Hotel – Let the Rules Committee hear our voices from outside.
Today is the first day to register for the May 31, 2008 Rules and Bylaws Committee meeting of the Democratic? National Committee.
The Rules Committee meeting will be at the Marriott Wardman Park Hotel. The meeting is open to the public. The Committee insists you pre-register if you want to attend.

Florida and Michigan and Hillary and Hillary supporters will not be silenced by the Democratic? National Committee and assorted self-interested politicians and misogynists.
Former President Bill Clinton said that Democrats were more likely to lose in November if Hillary Clinton is not the nominee, and suggested some were trying to “push and pressure and bully” superdelegates to make up their minds prematurely.
“I can’t believe it. It is just frantic the way they are trying to push and pressure and bully all these superdelegates to come out,” Clinton said at a South Dakota campaign stop Sunday, in remarks first reported by ABC News.
Clinton also suggested some were trying to “cover up” Sen. Clinton’s chances of winning in key states that Democrats will have to win in the general election.
” ‘Oh, this is so terrible: The people they want her. Oh, this is so terrible: She is winning the general election, and he is not. Oh my goodness, we have to cover this up.’ “
Bill Clinton is right. Democrats want Hillary. Obama is unelectable.
The former president added that his wife had not been given the respect she deserved as a legitimate presidential candidate.
“She is winning the general election today and he is not, according to all the evidence,” Clinton said. “And I have never seen anything like it. I have never seen a candidate treated so disrespectfully just for running.” [snip]
“If you notice, there hasn’t been a lot of publicity on these polls I just told you about,” he said. “It is the first time you’ve heard it? Why do you think that is? Why do you think? Don’t you think if the polls were the reverse and he was winning the Electoral College against Senator McCain and Hillary was losing it, it would be blasted on every television station?”
He added, “You would know it wouldn’t you? It wouldn’t be a little secret. And there is another Electoral College poll that I saw yesterday had her over 300 electoral votes. … She will win the general election if you nominate her. They’re just trying to make sure you don’t.”
Bill Clinton ain’t ta foolin’. Obama is unelectable.
