Is Hillary Clinton Collecting MONOPOLY Cards?

January 30, 2008

Hillary Monopoly 3

By CB Buchholz

What happened in the Florida primary yesterday caused the DEAF DEMOCRATS editors to pause and scratch their heads. In some ways, the Florida Democratic primary was a repeat performance of the Michigan primary.

Like Michigan, Florida was penalized by the Democratic National Committee (DNC) for moving up its primary to an earlier date and was meted out with the same kind of punishment — the loss of all its delegates which totalled 210 folks! The Floridan Republicans suffered a similar fate, with the loss of half their delegates, just like what happened in Michigan.

Once again, this “beauty contest” was won by Senator Hillary Clinton. Also she won with 50% of the Democratic vote, followed by the combined 48% vote for Barack Obama (2nd place) and John Edwards (a distant 3rd place.)

Furthermore, the DEAF DEMOCRATS editors are questioning the wisdom of penalizing Florida because like Michigan, Florida is one of those crucial states that any presidential candidate must carry in order to win the presidency. There is something just not right with the whole picture.

Why would Hillary Clinton make a point of winning in states penalized by the DNC and earning no delegates in the process? This does not make any sense, unless unless unless…her camp is counting on no candidate reaching the magic number of 2,025 delegates to win the Democratic nomination, only because of Florida and Michigan being left out. This kind of thinking may explain why she kept her name on the Michigan ballot. And that Barack Obama and John Edwards finally caught on to Hillary’s logic and kept their names on the Florida ballot?? And that Hillary can use her Michigan and Florida victories as “Monopoly game cards” to trade in for their delegates and break the deadlock at the convention??

You can bet on these three candidates making claims that they respected the DNC penalty decisions by not campaigning in either Michigan or Florida and therefore should not be penalized in any way. We shall see, but if everyone arrives in Denver this coming August to a deadlocked convention, then the DNC may have no choice but to activate the Michigan and Florida delegates. By then, Senator Hillary Clinton will be in a plush position to benefit from all this, because of the combined total of 366 delegates between Michigan and Florida!

Talk about the power of Monopoly game cards! Let’s wait until August to see if our Deaf eyes are right on the money!! By the way, we love Park Place and Boardwalk!!

  1. I love this, a clear explaination of how Hilliary/Obama win “points” to qualified for nomination at DNC. Looking at your Democrat Derby,

    If Hilliary already won 230 super delegates, then to add 366 (Michigan $ Florida)would that make it to 596?

    Then she would need only 1,429 more to go to qualified. Right? Super Tuesday?

    Geez, I better go polish my old studies on Political Science.


  2. I think y’all are on to something. Needless to say, as a voter, I’d be awfully disappointed if I’d gone to the polls, only to find out that my candidate’s name wasn’t on it. Secondly, as a candidate, I wanna be sure that people know I’m in the forefront of their minds; at the minimum, within distance of view from the voters’ rearview mirrors. Indeed, Hillary was the smart one to see past the blockade, as it were. That is “outside the box”thinking.

    My only hope is that the country is ready to move on(.org) and confident enough to pick either a woman or a black man when it comes time to casting real votes.


  3. Also, there are legal repercussions for taking away votes/delegations. Hillary has been asked if she will file a lawsuit to claim the delegation, which will occur if she loses to Obama. I believe this will be a constitutional issue on the national level, as opposed to leaving individual states to rule on the matter. I guess it is a Florida thing to have their votes disenfranchised as it occurred with Gore and Bush in 2000. The only way Hillary can claim the delegates will be through the courts, unfortunately.


  4. I really like Hillary monopoly. I want to know where buy it cuz i want buy now!


  5. You covered that well. I have not really follow all this jazz via media. Is the media covering the topic of, “collecting MONOPOLY cards”?

    Strange , in watching primary result for Michigan and Florida via national TV media. There seem to be no discussion of, “nice number but the party wont count those votes”. Maybe they have and I simply missed it.

    Am I wrong? Is TV media not covering those topics? Are they staying away from it?

    Hello Kathy,
    Thanks for your comments/compliments. Yes, you are correct in a sense about the media coverage of the Michigan and Florida primaries. Both primaries have been treated as “sleepers”, and the media (including TV, newspapers, magazines, etc.) did explain that their votes didn’t really count because of the penalty from the Democratic National Committee. Therefore, the media did not pour more coverage than necessary into those states.

    But we all need our Deaf Eyes to notice these things and “interpret” for our readers, wink wink!! You know, we Deaf and Hard of Hearing people are famous for our “6th sense” and we have a different way of viewing the world and human behavior. No, the media did not discuss the concept of collecting “Monopoly cards” and this is what we invented to help our readers understand why this presidential election is really a very high-stakes game with a lot of strategy behind the scenes! Because of this, we try very hard to make our community realize HOW IMPORTANT this election really is because your vote DOES COUNT!!
    Again, thanks Kathy!!

  6. CB asks why “Hillary Clinton would make a point of winning in states penalized by the DNC and earning no delegates in the process?” Because Hillary breaks the rules when it suits her. She did it in Florida, and snubs her nose at the DNC by promising Florida voters their selection will be honored.

    All Democratic candidates including Hillary pledged to not campaign in Florida, but she did. The rules were set for a reason. Michigan and Florida were warned what would happen. It’s those states Democratic parties that are to blame for disenfranchizing their voters. Every state wants to be first. Without scheduling rules the caucuses and primaries would all be over by now. If the DNC backs down, they’ll have no way of enforcing the schedule in the future.

  7. I cannot forget the arrogance of Obama with his divisive language. He has not earned my vote nor will he get it.

    “I am confident I will get her votes if I’m the nominee,” Obama stressed. “It’s not clear she would get the votes I got if she were the nominee.”


  8. Good Morning to all. I think they should be seated. I also think who ever has the most votes not deligate count should be the winner. Oboma Said In the beggining b-4 he got the most deligate count that whomever wins the popular vote should be the winner and supper del. shouldnt over rule the people like the bush gore vote in Florida got stolen. Now I dont see Oboma mentioning his earler comments on the popular vote. Why dosnt the media show this clip they have on file from the beggining when Oboma made these comments. He said he is a man of honest and Christian man. Then he should stick to his words that he said himself when he thought he could get popular vote and thought he would lose the deligate count. Doesnt any one else want to no what happend to his earler commments and were are the media folks showing these comments. Now I see he has changed or made lies more than once. First he said he would if he became the pres. nominee. he would use public funding. Now he said the popular vote shouldnt be overturned by the super deligates. BUT NOW WE SEE HES NOT FOR CHANGE HE IS JUST ANOTHER POLITITION PLAYING THE SAME OLD GAME. JUST PUTTING IT TO THE AMERICAN PEOPLE IN A CHANGE FOR THE FUTURE. DOES ANYONE NOW HILARY HAS BEEN WORKING FOR CHANGE AND HAS ACCOMPLICED CHANGE HAS GONE AGAINST PARTY LINES AND HAD MADE GREAT CHANGES. OBOMA ON THE OTHER HANDS DOSNT MAKE ANY VOTES ON ANY CONT. ISSUES SO HE MAKES HIM SELF LOOK LIKE HE DOSN T HAVE A OPINION / POLITION AT HIS BEST SUPPOSE TO MAKE A VOTE FOR THE AMERICAN FOLKS AND DOSN T VOTE. SO IT CANT BE USED AGAINST HIM IN A ELECTION YET HIS JOB IS TO VOTE NE OR YA FOR THE [AMERICAN PEOPLE) ATLEAST HILARY WILL MAKE THE VOTE AND TAKE THE CHANCE THAT SHE IS RITE. SHE IS A DO PRESIDENT AND NOWS THE SYSTEM AND HOW TO GET THINGS DONE. OBOMA DOSNT NO THE SYSTEM AND WILL TAKE HIM YEARS TO GET ANYTHING DONE. WERE HILARY KNOWS WHAT ROADS AND BATLES SHE CAN WIN AND HOW TO WIN THEM WITH BILL CLINTON THERE TO SUPPORT AND HELP HER WHEN THE GOING GETS TOUGH HILARY THE TOUGH WILL GET GOING. HILARY IS OUR BEST CHANCE FOR THE PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES AND FOR CHANGE………..SHE IS A CHAMPION OF THE PEOPLE AND IF WERE GOING TO LET HER LOSE BECAUSE OF BLACK PREGIDIST AND BLACK VOTES GOING IN A LAND SLIDE FOR OBOMA AND THIS IS RACE AT ITS BEST. HILARY HAS GOTTEN MOST OF THE STATES THAT MATTER IN A GEN. ELECTION. THIS IS HOW THE DEM. PARTY HAS DECIDED FOR YEARS ON THE PRESIDENT CANDIDATE FOR THE HARDEST JOB IN THE WORLD. NOW OBOMA AND HIS FRIENDS THINK THEY SHOULD OVER LOOK THIS AND GIVE HIM THE NOMINATION. I WILL AND ALL MY FRIENDS SAY THEY WILL EATHER NOT VOTE OR FOR SURE VOTE FOR MCCAIN IF A RACE DRIVEN RACE BY OBOMA AND HIS COMMITY. THERE WAS A MEMO ON USING THE RACE CARD AGAINST THE CLINTON FLOTING AROUND OBOMA CAMP LETS SEE THAT ON THE NEWS SHOW US THE DOCUMENT. SHOW US THE OLD COMERCIALS OF OBOMA SAYING POPULAR VOTE SHOULDN T BE OVERTURNED. AMERICAN WANTS HILARY FOR PRESIDENT AND OBOMA FOR VICE PRESIDENT SO HE CAN LEARN. THE ROPES AND THEN HE MIGHT BE ABLE TO TAKE OVER THE RAINS FROM HILARY AND WE COULD HAVE 16 GREAT YEARS UNDER A DEM. LEADERSHIP AND MAKE AMERICAN HISTORY…………………

    I LOVE AMERICA
