Hillary did not fully support the disenfranchisement of Florida from the beginning. Hillary was the last to agree...
Obama is showing his desperation again, to take this low road again, in saying anything in an effort to try to demonize Senator Clinton for wanting to count peoples votes, and him, Senator Obama OBVIOUSLY NOT wanting to and blocking every effort to count Michigan and Florida-even their willingness to revote if he wanted to block their existing votes from counting.
Senator Obama, can you tell us why you have been blocking every effort to count millions of citizens votes in Michigan and Florida?
And while you, Senator Obama, show you will take any low road, that in your eyes, the end justifies the means, in effort to benefit you personally, do not accuse Senator Clinton of what YOU YOURSELF DO.
And, while we're at it, that disgusting remark you just made about Senator Clinton, that you seem to have no problem in your politics, is also a lie. I seem to recall Senator Clinton has always been fighting to have Florida and Michigan count. Even while your campaign was mocking her effort to go to Florida after their polls closed, so she could still honor the DNC pledge not to campaign there before their primary, but wanted to acknowledge Florida and the voters, she promised them that night as well, to do everything to have their DELEGATES be seated.

Read what is said in the quote you posted. No where does Hillary state that she thinks Florida and Michigan delegates should be taken away.
What she states, between the lines, is that she does not want to piss off the other states, because that would be political suicide.
Another point Senator Obama. Like you, Senator Clinton signed the DNC's pledge, along with many of the other presidential candidates, that they would not CAMPAIGN in Florida prior to the DNC's approved Primary Election date of February 5. Being Florida, along with Michigan held their Primaries earlier on January 29, Hillary Clinton did not campaign there.
You, Senator Obama, however did break the DNC rules. Not only did your campaign run ads and spend 1.3 million dollars in the state, you also held a press conference there, a BIG NO NO in the DNC's Rules.

Just so you are aware, there is no law that says the voters even get a say in the nominee selection process. If they wanted to, the DNC and RNC could simply decide amongst themselves who they wanted the candidates to be, and we would have no say. That would be perfectly legal. We only have a legal right to vote for the general election in November. So there is nothing wrong with them giving however many delegates to whoever they want.
