AOL News covers Day of Blogging for Voter Justice
AOL News covered the Day of Blogging for Voter Justice. I’ll include the AOL article in its entirety.
For three more months (maybe more!) the campaign will proceed along in its Verdun-like pattern. There will be a steady rifle fire of character assassination from the underlings, interrupted by the occasional firestorm of artillery when the contest touches upon race, gender or patriotism. The policy debates between the two have been long exhausted, so the only way to get the public really engaged is by poking some raw national wound.
Brooks is not alone. The Afrosphere Action Coalition, a network of black bloggers, has organized a “Day of Blogging for Voter Justice.” Their goal “is to urge and warn Hillary Clinton that we simply will not condone – now or in November – the game she is playing with the Democratic Party.”
The coalition is circulating a petition calling on Clinton to “concede now.” Francis Holland, who’s spearheading the effort, writes:
Today, in the face of Hillary Clinton’s steadfast insistence that she can win the Democratic presidential nomination regardless of the earned delegate count and the popular vote that are irretrievably against her, we are telling Hillary STOP! “Concede Now, Hillary!” Barack Obama has 1,413 earned delegates to Hillary’s 1,242. Everyone who’s objective says that there’s virtually no way that Hillary can catch up, including (privately) Hillary’s own advisers.
But Clinton has no plan to concede. She’s in it to win.
