Breaking; Negotiations Between Hill and Obama Have "Ceased;" Obama Now Merely Telling Hillary What's Going to Happen

Possible Plan to Scrap Roll Call Entirely in Favor of Written Ballot (Which Woud Be Untelevised, and Perhaps Not Even at the Convention)

Alternate plan: Roll call begins tomorrow, but ends at 1:15. Then the call for unanimous acclimation of Obama.

Another plan: Each state reads its delegates' votes... but only Obama's numbers are mentioned. Hillary's delegate counts are omitted entirely. Thus, instead of saying "The Great State of Iowa casts (whatever) 44 votes for Hillary Clinton, and sixty-six votes for the next president of the United States, Barack Obama," they just say "Iowa casts sixty six votes for the next president of the United States, Barack Obama."

That's not how it traditionally works. At least I've always heard the vote-split way of announcing the delegate count.

On FoxNews now. Hill's Angels are getting pissed off.

I don't blame them, really. No one watches the roll call. More will watch this one, but what, exactly, is the problem? Everyone knows Hillary won nearly 50% of the delegates. What's the problem in having an announcement as to what everyone already knows?

Good Lord All Mighty, Obama is a vain, thin-skinned guy.

Bear in mind, this genius Obama is further annoying Hillary's delegates in the interests of "uniting the party."

It's 3 a.m. All Over Again: McCain's, and Hilary's, new ad:

Man, if that ad was racist when Hillary ran it, I can't wait to find out how extra-special racist it is now that it's McCain's.

Thanks to KP.
