Hillary Wants 'Every Vote' Counted; Vows Fight To Convention

Comparing her effort to seat Florida and Michigan delegates to epic American struggles, including those to free the slaves and win the right to vote for blacks and women, Sen. Hillary Clinton has vowed to fight for the dem nomination all the way to her party's national convention.

Interesting. EVERY vote should be counted, she says. Of course, that is as long as it's the "right" vote.

Let's not forget how her party overtly tried -- succeeding in many cases -- to browbeat Florida elections officials into cancel the votes of service men and women stationed overseas. There was a position paper on "how to do it" that surfaced during the Florida counts in the 2000 election.

Yes, every vote should count. As long as it is the right vote.
