HIllary Strategy: Sue If You're Losing

Hillary Strategy: Sue If You're Losing

Team Hillary has finally figured out how they're going to win this thing: when you're losing, sue.
The Texas Democratic Party warned Thursday that election night caucuses scheduled for next Tuesday could be delayed or disrupted after aides to Hillary Clinton threatened to sue over the party's complicated delegate selection process.

Texas Dems respond:
"As you know, the rules and procedures that govern the 2008 Texas primary and convention were actually developed by and utilized in previous Presidential election cycles by many of your key Texas supporters and have been available to your campaigns well before voting, or even campaigning, had started."

Just like the Nevada at large caucuses, just like Florida and Michigan: change the rules in the middle of the game.

Vermont has the solution to Iowa City's underage drinking "problem":
"Our laws aren't working. They're not preventing underage drinking. What they're doing is putting it outside the public eye," Vermont state Sen. Hinda Miller said. "So you have a lot of kids binge drinking. They get sick, they get scared and they get into trouble and they can't call because they know it's illegal."

On Thursday, a committee of the Vermont Senate approved Miller's bill to have a task force weigh the pros and cons of rolling back the drinking age and make a recommendation to the Legislature early next year.

City Council: after last fall's results, you should be camped out in the rotunda demanding this. Legislators: tell the Feds to shove their highway money. People who whine about 18 and the schools: that's the school's problem. When you're an adult, you're an adult. Either get the drinking age back to 18 where it belongs, or repeal the 26th Amendment.
