Hillary Crushes Obama in Puerto Rico

Posted on June 1, 2008

Hillary Clinton crushed Barack Obama in the Puerto Rico Democratic primary today, 68% - 32%. She beat him in all demographics. Meanwhile the DNC Rules Committee decided to seat Florida and Michigan, but give their delegates only half a vote each, which is absolutely absurd. They divvied up the Florida delegates fairly, but stole some of Hillary's Michigan delegates and gave them to Obama. The whole thing was a bad joke: Florida and Michigan's voters have now been officially disenfranchised by Donna Brazile and her ilk. Hillary's supporters are not happy, to say the least.

Hillary is now leading in the popular vote -- more than 17 million people have voted for her, more than any candidate has ever received in a primary. Here's Hillary's new ad in Montana:
