Pennsylvania Governor Shows Favoritism to Clinton Campaign

Posted by libhom Tuesday, February 19, 2008

This is truly disturbing.

Hillary Clinton's presidential campaign failed to file a full slate of convention delegate candidates for Pennsylvania's April 22 primary.

This despite the possibility the primary proves critical and despite Clinton owning the full-throated support of Gov. Rendell, state Democratic Party leadership, Mayor Nutter and, presumably, the organizational skill all that entails.

And despite a Rendell-ordered extension of the filing deadline that could be viewed as more than just coincidental.

I've pretty much lost the respect I used to have for PA Governor Rendell. Governors should not use the powers of their offices to favor political candidates.

This problem also raises questions about the competency of the Clinton campaign.
It appears Clinton came up 10 or 11 candidates short across a number of congressional districts, including two in Philadelphia.

That's close to 10 percent of the 103 delegates to be decided by voters.

It appears the shortage would've been double that if Rendell hadn't extended last week's candidate filing deadline by a day and a half, ostensibly due to bad weather.

This at a time when Clinton's campaign, like Barack Obama's - which did file a full slate in the state - hoards delegates like diamonds.

Let's see. Hillary Clinton, who supposedly is more ready to be in the White House than Barack Obama, is having trouble running her campaign.

In the real world, as opposed to Clinton spinland, Obama has more experience in public office than Ms. Clinton does. Yet, we are expected to believe that he lacks experience and "isn't ready."

The corporate media share lot of blame for this by not reporting the facts when Ms. Clinton claims that she is more experienced. This is typical of the media favoring the more conservative of two candidates. Another example of the pro-Clinton bias is that incidents like the Rendell favoritism don't get the national coverage they deserve. When it comes to political corruption, the Clintons get the same free pass that the Bushes do.
