Mutiny at the Democratic National Convention?
Posted on Jul 12, 2008
A defiant new group of Democrats calling itself the Denver Group has started a campaign to make sure the Democratic presidential nomination remains open until August’s convention in Denver, leaving the game open to certain contenders (read: HRC) instead of following the “presumptive nominee Barack Obama” plan.
Thomas B. Edsall in The Huffington Post:
The Denver Group is not committed to any candidate, Feldman said, although the organization’s web site, and the links provided at the site, suggest a decisive tilt toward Clinton and, in some cases, intense animosity to Obama.
Rubin, for example, writes not only on the Denver Group site, but also on Tom In Paine. There, the lead piece by Rubin is titled “The New Obama, The New Nixon and The Same Old New York Times.” Rubin writes, “The analogy of Obama to Nixon is valid from many different points of view since a case can be made that Obama is the most underhanded and dishonest politician since Nixon.”
Tea time: The Denver Group ran this advertisement in Friday’s Chicago Tribune.
