Hillary Clinton, “champion of democracy“:
“There are some folks saying we ought to stop these elections,” she said in Indianapolis, Indiana, on March 29 as the audience booed the notion. “I don’t think we believe that in America,” she said. “The more people that have a chance to vote, the better it is for our democracy.”
As Pennsylvania’s primary nears, Clinton’s staffers have increasingly accused Barack Obama’s campaign of trying to disenfranchise Democrats. On Monday, in a satellite interview with a television station in Montana, Clinton herself made the charge.
“My take on it is a lot of Sen. Obama’s supporters want to end this race because they don’t want people to keep voting,” she told KTVQ in Billings, Montana. “That’s just the opposite of what I believe. We want people to vote. I want the people of Montana to vote, don’t you?”
Of course, if the elected representatives of the people of Montana (or any other state) insist that Clinton reveal her shady finances, or produce subpoenaed files, or to open up her secret meetings to nationalize health care… well, they can just fuck off.
