Presidential Nominating Convention rules going down in flames
June 25, 2008 in Presidential Campaign
As I noted in an earlier post here at GPW, The Green National Committee is considering a proposal to change and establish rules for the Presidential Nominating Convention in Chicago. In my original post I pointed out that California delegates had not voted in support of the proposal, and anonymous asked why I singled out the California delegation.
Well, another look today shows why I took notice. Proposal 348 is in trouble, and in no small part because the California delegation has voted 13 no votes and not a single “yes” vote yet. With the vote currently at 20 yes, and 29 no, the California delegation is the only one of size that is unified solidly on one side of the question. New York is split, as is Illinois. Maine is unified behind the “Yes” position, and no one from Texas has voted yet.
That is why I said that California was worth keeping an eye on.
