Clinton Moves Goal Posts Once Again

The count of delegates does not include delegates from Florida and Michigan, who were penalized by the Democratic Party for moving up their primaries ahead of a schedule set by the Democratic National Committee. None of the Democratic candidates campaigned in either state. But Clinton, who won the popular vote in both state primaries, on Wednesday renewed her call for Florida and Michigan to be counted in the nomination race.

"It's a mistake for the Democratic Party to punish these two states," she said. "I don't see how a Democratic nominee goes forward alienating two of the most important states."

Oh really? How very interesting. They 'should count' because she 'won' them. Slick stuff. But then, she's part of the good old boy's political machine. So much for 'change.'
