After weeks of negotiation, Obama and Clinton announced in a joint statement today that HRC will get her roll call vote at the Convention. Obama trotted out the “party unity” excuse and Clinton, for her part, will hear the call, offer her Super Delegate vote for Obama and then release her delegates and call on them to vote for Obama. All of this smacks of so much of the old politics of which the Obama campaign promised to rid us. I’m tired of it and actually glad that the credential I will share with other bloggers will be around someone else’s neck that night and I won’t have to witness this debacle on the floor in Denver. I’ve said before, the Clintons need to go away and let Obama have his moment. They are, of course, incapable, with their power insatiable personalities, to accomplish this.
