Rules are Rules...unless you're George Clooney?

“If we had same rules as the Republicans, I would be the nominee right now,” Senator Clinton declared to the press.

From today's New York Times:

“The states that I’ve won total 300 electoral votes,” she told about 300 people in a high school gymnasium in Maysville [Ky.], the birthplace of the actor George Clooney. “The question is who can win 270 electoral votes? My opponent has won states totaling 217 electoral votes.”

As she has in the past, she discounted Mr. Obama’s victories in caucus states and states likely to vote Republican in November, ticking off Alaska, Utah, Nebraska, Kansas and Idaho. “Many of his votes and delegates come from caucus state which have a relatively low turnout,” she said.

“Right now more people have voted for me than have voted for my opponent,” Mrs. Clinton said, without explaining how she reached that arithmetic certainty.
This, of course, comes from the same person who has not followed the DNC rules up till now, regarding Florida and Michigan. What makes her so sure that she would have followed a 'winner take all' rule, anyway?

But the real question is, why does the New York Times feel compelled to let us know that Mrs. Clinton gave her speech in a town famous for George Clooney.

You said, "This, of course, comes from the same person who has not followed the DNC rules up till now, regarding Florida and Michigan. What makes her so sure that she would have followed a 'winner take all' rule, anyway?"

Correct me if I am wrong but technically speaking she hasn't broken any rules so far has she? Granted she wants to change the rules to allow Florida and Michigan delegates a seat at the convention. Even though it seems unfair (and it is I might add) we all know that it is "anything goes" at the Democratic National convention.

They have the right to change the rules and decide what they want to do... It isn't fair nor right and I think it would be foolish if they allowed it.

Well, actually Mrs. Clinton DID break the rules---she had agreed NOT to be on the ballot or campaign in states that broke the DNC rules, and she did just that---she campaigned in Florida and Michigan, and her name appeared on the ballot in MI, while Obama's did not.

She broke her word.
