DENVER, (AP) -- Less than an hour before the Democratic convention calls the roll of the states, Hillary Rodham Clinton began an emotional gathering with her delegates Wednesday by telling them she was releasing them as delegates to vote for Barack Obama. Many in the crowded ballroom yelled back "No!"
Clinton told her delegates she's not telling them what to do, adding: "You've come here from so many different places, having made this journey and feeling in your heart what is right for you to do."
Clinton told her loyal followers: "I want you to know that this has been a joy. Yes, we didn't make it. But, boy, did we have a good time."

Translated: “Don’t you dare vote for that man!”
Have they decided to vote at the hotel or at the convention?
Shoot.. Just like a liberal woman; give up when facing male competition. Liberal women can’t take the heat so they just give up.
She released them to vote "what they feel is right". Who did they want to vote for in the first place again????
It’s almost worth running the risk of an Obama presidency to watch Hillary’s wonderfully agonizing, slow motion loss.
Libs don’t usually “just give up” - they usually go to some gov’t authority to force their way to the goal they seek to achieve.
I dislike Hillary far less then I dislike Obama.
Surprised they’re not shopping it to some Clintonista Federal Judge to seek an immediate injunction of some kind.
Wouldn’t put it past the litigious-minded ‘Rat party of the Judiciary as Monarchs.
Can you imagine a Federal Judge throwing out the results of the DNC Convention? Now that would be a fitting outcome to
the democracy of the chosen via Dem tyrants.
Kinda like like saying “I dislike the viper in my right hand less than the rattler in my left.”
What was the price Obama paid for this? Hillary to SCOTUS?
Pointless. The delegates voted this morning in their hotels.
Senate Majority leader
Just out of curiosity, what’s to stop the delegates from making Hillary Obama’s VP? If someone nominated her, I think she’d easily get a majority vote. Is there something in the rules that states that Obama HAS to be allowed to pick his own VP?
Poor Harry. :)
I heard they were voting at hotels to cut down on the amount of time it will consume, so they can merrily roll along to vote for the nation’s downfall.
Awww Jeeez now the DNC has a guy who claims he is a registered Republican and Iraq war vet shilling for Obamas nomination
