PUMA Politics: Oh Hell No!…..No Roll Call Vote?
According to ABC News/Political Radar there may not be a roll call vote.
Can someone, anyone, tell me how that is possible when Senator Clinton (with the inclusion of Michigan and Florida’s delegations) has officially won the popular vote and there is a less than 100 delegate difference between “The One” and the Real Democratic Nominee; Senator Clinton?

ABC News’ Nitya Venkataraman reports: After former rivals Sen. Barack Obama and Sen. Hillary Clinton worked to broker a deal where Clinton’s name would be placed into nomination alongside Obama’s at the Democratic convention, speculation swirls in Denver that Clinton insiders may be willing to accept no roll-call vote, fearing the blame of disrupting the party’s efforts at unity.
ABC News’ Chief Washington correspondent George Stephanopoulos says no decisions have yet been made, but that the state-by-state vote faces the possibility of elimination in favor of Obama’s nomination “by acclamation.”
“The whole idea of a roll call vote could be in flux at this point,” Stephanopoulos told ABC’s Charles Gibson on World News Sunday night.
“The Clinton people here, they’ve said they wanted catharsis, they wanted that roll call, but they may not get it,” Stephanopoulos said, describing the decision as one being discussed at the highest levels of Clinton’s camp. “They don’t want to be blamed for any trouble at this convention.”
When is the DNC going to stop blaming everything on Senator Clinton and Clinton supporters?
Barack Obama is not and has not done his job to unite this party. He needs to take responsibility for his lack of enthusiasm towards the Clinton camp and her supporters and do the right thing; an open roll call vote.
The obvious continuing fiasco of railroading this election in Barack Obama’s favor is getting very old with PUMAs, and I am sure it will not sit well with the rest of the country. Rest assured, the Republicans are going to use this “Death of Democracy” inside the Democratic Party against the Dems in the upcoming general election run.
DNC stop creating defeat and hold an open, transparent roll call vote and let the best candidate win!
Has Everyone Forgotten This?
