Hillary Clinton Pulls A Zell Miller - She Must Lose Super Delegate Status

Clinton praises McCain again, says he’s crossed ‘Commander in Chief threshold’ Posted at the Carpetbagger Report March 7th, 2008:

At a press conference on Monday in Ohio, Clinton was defending her “3 a.m.” ad, and told reporters, “I have a lifetime of experience I will bring to the White House. I know Senator McCain has a lifetime of experience he will bring to the White House. And Senator Obama has a speech he made in 2002.”

The pro-McCain comments were quickly and widely panned — so Clinton repeated them. James Fallows
reported on Wednesday, “In a live CNN interview just now, Sen. Clinton repeated, twice, the ‘Sen. McCain has a lifetime of experience, I have a lifetime of experience, Sen. Obama has one speech in 2002′ line 

That, too, was widely panned, leading Clinton to ratchet up the pro-McCain rhetoric
a little more.

...The only other member of the congressional Democratic caucus who praises McCain this much is Joe Lieberman.
Clinton's endorsement of Republican John McCain disqualifies her as a super-delegate to the Democratic National Convention under what is informally known as the Zell Miller rule

Like Lieberman, Hillary must be stripped of her superdelegate status.  

Here's How the Zell Miller Rule Must Apply to Hillary Clinton:

Lieberman's endorsement of Republican John McCain disqualifies him as a super-delegate to the Democratic National Convention under what is informally known as the Zell Miller rule, according to Democratic State Chairwoman Nancy DiNardo.

Miller, then a Democratic senator from Georgia, not only endorsed Republican George Bush four years ago, but he delivered a vitriolic attack on Democrat John Kerry at the Republican National Convention. 


Clinton, then a Democratic senator from New York, not only endorsed Republican John McCain repeatedly in March, she suggested publicly and to the main stream media that her primary opponent and likely nominee, Barack Obama - is so unfit that that the Republican nominee might be preferable to him.
