And so it begins...
The RBC decision wasn't an hour old before some very angry Democrats proved that "unity" requires a whole lot more than noble speeches and lofty rhetoric:
U.S. Rep. Alcee Hastings of Miramar (FL) - who is a respected congressman - will not attend the Democratic National Convention in Denver, as a "matter of protest":
"Now, on May 31, 2008, a group of elitist insiders of the DNC have effectively said that some of my ancestors’ progeny equal only 1/2 and that men and women in Florida who voted on January 29th are 1/2 also. For a Party which will crown its historic nominee on the 45th anniversary of Dr. King’s ‘I Have a Dream’ speech, the DNC’s decision today is tragically ironic."
