Ben Smith reports that…

Hillary Clinton compared her effort to seat Florida and Michigan delegates to epic American struggles, including those to free the slaves and win the right to vote for blacks and women.

The Democratic National Committee rules are the same as Jim Crow Laws? Howard Dean is like Jefferson Davis? The DNC is no better than the racist, sexist politicians of times past who tried to keep blacks and woman ‘in their place’?

She’s in for an epic struggle all right- trying to explain THAT one.

    Why should anyone stay in a party so badly organized that a snake like Obama can slither in and get the nomination? What happened to democracy, one man one vote, and majority rules? The following article exposes an outrageous weakness.
    He did this to get the nomination in Illinois, too. Obama’s campaign mastered some of the most arcane rules in politics, and then used them to foil a front-runner who seemed to have every advantage — money, fame and a husband who had essentially run the Democratic Party for eight years as president.

    “Without a doubt, their understanding of the nominating process was one of the keys to their success,” said Tad Devine, a Democratic strategist not aligned with either candidate. “They understood the nuances of it and approached it at a strategic level that the Clinton campaign did not.”

    Careful planning is one reason why Obama is emerging as the nominee as the Democratic Party prepares for its final three primaries, Puerto Rico on Sunday and Montana and South Dakota on Tuesday. Attributing his success only to soaring speeches and prodigious fundraising ignores a critical part of contest.

    Obama used the Democrats’ system of awarding delegates to limit his losses in states won by Clinton while maximizing gains in states he carried. Clinton, meanwhile, conserved her resources by essentially conceding states that favored Obama, including many states that held caucuses instead of primaries.
