Supporters of Hillary Rodham Clinton furiously circulated petitions on the floor of the Democratic National Convention last night, hoping to stave off a plan to hold the convention's roll call at breakfast Wednesday — out of the public eye — sources inside the delegations said. The move being worked out between the Obama campaign and officials behind Clinton's suspended bid, would work in two parts: Delegates would cast votes at their hotels Wednesday morning; that night, at the Pepsi Center convention site, the roll-call process would rely on the votes cast that morning, the delegates said.
What does this tell us? It says that the Obama camp doesn't trust the Clinton camp, one bit.
They are deadly afraid the Clintons have lined up something slick, something like a convention coup. They have to be worried that there are doubts among the super-delegates, who were won over late and with some extra effort.
I tell you folks, there's trouble in paradiseland. The Democrats are as close to being as divided, as they were in 68, as they ever have been since.
