Will Hillary Clinton Take It to the Convention? ()
In a decision meant to create compromise but which raised frictions even further, the Democratic Party's Rules and Bylaws Committee settled the disputed primary issue of Michigan and Florida by giving delegates from those states a half-vote at the party's convention in Denver. Hillary Clinton won big in Puerto Rico's primary yesterday, and some of her supporters are vowing to fight all the way to the August convention. Others, however, are saying it's time to step aside and get behind Barack Obama as the party's nominee. Will this week decide which candidate becomes the party's nominee? At what cost? Will it wage a united front in the general election campaign against Republican John McCain this fall?
