Hell, he's a distraction right here in Detroit, forget about Denver. He'll hopefully be toast by the time the Dims get together in the Mile High City. Sounds like a fitting place for the Dims, too.

Did you see this in the article?

“But Obama spokesman Brent Colburn said in an e-mail that the focus of the convention should be on Obama and not on what Colburn called “the troubles of one individual.”

The focus should be on Obama??? Not the process, not the convention, the focus should be on Obama???? These people are so full of themselves!

He's got to be there as a superdelegate eh?

Another one under the bus.

Yeah that bus is going to need an oversize lift kit to get everyone under the Obama bus. Poor grandma is at the bottom being the first to go.

I thought he was on the short list for VP.

His recent antics have given him the street cred for a prominent position in the Democrat party.

Huh. I keep getting some 404 page not found message, and when I do a search and find the article, I still get the 404 thing. MLive and AP have picked up Barkman's story, though.

My problems aside, please remember that this is not the Kwame that Obama knew. (giggle)

Obama better be careful or the mayor won’t manufacture enough votes to win him the state.

Kwame Kilpatrick is a Superdelegate.

To deny him opportunity to go vote at the Convention shows the continued fraud of the Democrats’ delegate vote in 2008.

Is the One actually going to stand up and make that statement in public?

Or, as usual, will he send a lackey out to say it for him?
