Delegate Crisis! *dun dunn DUNNN!*

As the “delegate crisis” unfolds, it is interesting to see how the media portrays the melee.  The AP certainly has an interesting take on things.  

A few things drew my attention in this article.

The decision was a blow to Hillary Rodham Clinton as she was on the verge of watching Obama make history as the first black Democratic presidential nominee. It prompted an irate reaction from boisterous Clinton supporters in the audience and her chief delegate counter, Harold Ickes.

“How can you call yourselves Democrats if you don’t count the vote?” one man in the audience shouted before being escorted out by security. “This is not the Democratic Party!”

The deal passed 19-8. Thirteen members of the committee supported Clinton, so she wasn’t even able to keep her supporters together.

“We just blew the election!” a woman in the audience shouted. The crowd was divided between cheering Obama supporters and booing Clinton supporters.

The AP (and most of the media) must certainly be in the “cheering Obama supporters” column.
