More signs that the Democratic Party is splintering.
We know that Bernie supporters have been outraged by their unfair treatment.
The establishment, strong Clinton lovers, seem to be going out of their way to suppress and silence the younger generation.
Although Clinton has the lead, and will most likely gain the nomination, she can’t possibly win the White House without the unified support of her party. That’s something that does not seem to be happening.
Now her longtime supporter, Debbie Wasserman Schultz, is facing the chopping block.
From Conservative Tribune:
Debbie Wasserman Schultz, the Clinton family sycophant who currently heads the Democratic National Committee, may be asked to step down from her position as chief of the DNC before the party convention, several lawmakers said.
The Hill reported that controversy over how Wasserman Schultz has treated Sanders supporters, especially when it comes to representation at the convention in Philadelphia, has made her position atop the Democrat Party “untenable.”
“There have been a lot of meetings over the past 48 hours about what color plate do we deliver Debbie Wasserman Schultz’s head on,” one anonymous lawmaker said.
That’s some strong rhetoric indeed.
The problems come from Wasserman Schultz’s poor handling of the party.
During a time when unity is a must, the Democrats are all but falling apart, thanks to fundamental differences between their leading candidates.
The hardcore Sanders supporters see little in common with Hillary. Unless she and find a way to bring them over, trouble is coming.
In addition to the row over Bernie Sanders, Wasserman Schultz’s notorious gaffe-prone nature hasn’t helped her any. She was recently seen saying that the FBI’s investigation of Hillary Clinton wasn’t actually targeting Hillary, and during an interview last year she was unable to explain the difference between the Democrat Party’s platform and socialism.
She certainly doesn’t seem to be the one you want leading the convention, you know, if you want to win. Whether or not the Democrats have their way and oust Wasserman Schultz, they still have a long road to tow if they want to secure the support of Bernie Sanders’ people.
The question is: will they ever be able to?
