The return of Hillary Rodham Clinton

By way of Fox News:

[Hillary Rodham] Clinton said that her delegates want to have a role and feel that their “legitimacy is validated,” before the group moves forward to back Obama.

“I happen to believe that we will come out stronger if people feel that their voices were heard and their views respected. I think that is a very big part of how we actually come out unified,” Clinton, D-N.Y., said to applause.

“Because I know from just what I’m hearing, that there’s incredible pent-up desire. And I think that people want to feel like, ‘OK, it’s a catharsis, we’re here, we did it, and then everybody get behind Senator Obama.’ That is what most people believe is the best way to go,” she said.
But several of Clinton’s supporters are insistent that the former first lady get a vote on the convention floor. One self-identified delegate at the California fundraiser said a petition had been formed to put Clinton’s name on the ballot.

Remember that the margin that Barak Obama beat Hillary Clinton by in the elected/caucused delegates is smaller than the number of the democrat party overseers, also known as the so-called "Super Delegates."

It is those democrat Party Overseers/Uber-Delegates that are going decide who is the democrat nominee, not the democrat primary voters (more of which voted for HRC than BO).

Perhaps those democrat Party Overseers are noticing that Barak H. Obama isn't going anywhere in the polls. In fact it is Senator John McCain who got a boost in the polls after Obama's European tour.

Hillary's supporters are pointing this out, and perhaps HRC is making some quiet phone calls too.
