With all this talk about Hillary Clinton bringing her fight to the Democratic Convention and to the Credentials Committee, it’s worth wondering who, exactly, will the Credentials Committee be made up of? Maryland Politics Watch did a bit of reporting on this a little over a month ago, and guess what? They’re the same freakin’ superdelegates that the Clinton camp has been fighting for all along. And but for the chairpersons, none of the members of the committee have yet been determined. They will be picked by Howard Dean.
The article points out that two out of three of the chair people for the Committee are former Clinton White House officials. But also keep in mind that one of the former Clinton CC chairs, Alexis Herman, is also a member of the Rules Committee, the group that is largely responsible for the fate of Florida and Michigan’s primary do-overs. Is she going to overturn herself?
And once again, Clinton’s relentlessly spiraling, confused attacks on the superdelegates, the DCCC and anyone standing in her way are not going to help once she gets to the convention. Congressmen who’ve had their campaign money dangled in front of their eyes may not react kindly to Mrs. Clinton’s appeals.
