Confirmed: Hillary’s Name Will Be on Ballot in Denver

According to Ben Smith at Politico:

“A Clinton aide confirms Marc Ambinder's report that Hillary's name will be placed into nomination at the convention, giving her a larger procedural and symbolic role during the event, and offering a look backward at her near-miss primary.

“Despite the occasional tensions both at the tops of the campaigns and among their supporters, the actual convention planning appears to be coming off without major controversies.“Marc notes that the process could be used to give Clinton a public, symbolic moment to turn her delegates over to Obama.”

  1. This is good news. Being civilized is a vanishing art. Winning with grace and losing with dignity are considered to be for "chumps" now. Winners gloat. Losers fume. The standard exchange after a game is "good game" and "it was luck." It used to be the winner who said "it was luck" and loser who said "good game." Now, it's the opposite and that is a sad commentary on the state of the world.
