So in the long run Hillary and her cohorts really don't give a damn whether the voters choose Obama over her or not...

While I am a very strong Republican, Obama is the least damaged candidate with the fewest political favors owed to lobbyists. Only he can bring change to Washington, not because he is a great leader, but because of his lack of experience in Washington and he feels he can make change happen. He really has no clue as to what he is doing or what he is getting involved with. This may be a good thing though.

I am a democrat but I would vote for McCain before voting for Hillary.
Hillary is a conservative in disguise. I have said it before and I am saying it again. Not only that but dishonesty is a big no-no. If I can't trust my leader(at least in theory) then there is no point in voting for them regardless of ideology.
Edsall writes, "with at least 50 percent of the Democratic Party's 30-member Rules and Bylaws Committee committed to Clinton, her backers could -- when the committee meets at the end of this month -- try to ram through a decision to seat the disputed 210-member Florida and 156-member delegations. Such a decision would give Clinton an estimated 55 or more delegates than Obama, according to Clinton campaign operatives."
The problems with this report -- and other speculative pieces like it -- is that the Rules and Bylaws Committee is not the last stop in the DNC committee process on the question of seating Florida and Michigan delegates. The DNC Credentials Committee is, and there, according to members interviewed throughout the nominating season, many delegates seem to believe following the party's rules -- i.e., winning delegates state by state -- is paramount, as is respecting the primary season's popular vote winner.
In other words, there is a bigger picture and more to the process than the next hurdle in the horse race coverage, namely, the Rules Committee's meeting on May 31.
