This is what was promised according the New York Times, “a paragon of party discipline and unity”. After viewing the Republican convention in Cleveland last week, especially the first day when there was a lot of dissension on the floor over RNC rules Mrs. Clinton (Hildebeast) promised her supporters:
“I can tell you we’re going to have a very different kind of convention.”
Unfortunately for Mrs. Clinton, the Bernie apparatchiks refused to fall in line.
It all came apart with the WikiLeaks release of 20,000 Democratic National Committee emails days before the convention spotlighting concerted effort by party leaders, most especially Debbie Wasserman Schultz (DWS), head of the DNC and Representative from the State of Florida, to undermine Bernie Sanders. She’s supposed to be neutral after all, but WikiLeaks had the goods on her and many others.
WikiLeaks also revealed that the Democratic Party and Politico have a special relationship where party operatives get to review and offer comment on stories Politico will publish. How nice for them that they get to shape the narrative right out the gate.
There are plenty of Bernie supporters who are still feeling slighted regarding the power the super delegates have over actual voters and the WikiLeaks release of the emails sent the boat over the falls. DWS realizing she was not going to survive this agreed to step down after the convention and the DNC stripped her of her speaking slot. Then she was booed at the opening day breakfast and had to whisked off the stage by security and it may just be over for Debbie. It was her party, her big event but it imploded because of her own corruption and I wouldn’t be surprised (or disappointed) if she loses her House seat too!
