“We need to get rid of caucuses,” said Melissa Whitener, a waitress from Conneaut, Pa., who traveled to lobby the Democratic National Committee as it prepared its party platform.
“Caucuses are inherently unfair,” she said. “I work in a restaurant. I can’t take off a whole shift to go sit in a caucus. We need to all be on the same primary system. Why should 2,000 people in Iowa have the same say as 2 million in Pennsylvania?”
Whitener and a small group of Clinton supporters planned to press the Democratic National Committee’s platform committee Saturday to call for an end to caucuses. They attended as guests.
Bob Remer, a Clinton delegate from Illinois, drafted a caucus-banning amendment.
Guess what? Patricia Madrid, the co-chair of the the party’s platform committee, “refused to allow the amendment to come up for a vote or even a discussion.”
Barack Obama, Howard Dean, and Donna Brazile are Democrats in Name Only, and therefore not interested in democracy, only power. Just look at how the Iowa caucus was manipulated by the Obama campaign from the get-go.
