Quote Of The Day: Craig Crawford On DNC’s Florida, Michigan Ruling

Congressional Quarterly’s Craig Crawford writes, in part, about today’s DNC committee rulingon the disputed Michigan and Florida delegations:

Make no mistake about it. The decision rendered today by the Democratic National Committee’s rules panel showed that Barack Obama has displaced Hillary Rodham Clinton and her husband, former President Bill Clinton, as boss of the party.

…..Losing what they needed today proves that for the first time in 16 years the Clintons are no longer in charge of the Democratic Party. There is a new boss in town.

    And yet there was an earlier TMV post from B. Clinton saying that the very compromise that was reached was the likely outcome.

    True, but that isn’t what they were pressing for. Clinton said that in private, but that was not their goal today.

    I think the Clintons came out ahead because they were able to have a net gain in delegates even though both both FL and MI broke the rules.

    I think people are saying Obama “won” because he’s still leading in delegates and he came out looking reasonable. But I still think the real win was by the Clintons, even if they didn’t get what they were dreaming of.
