Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama’s joint fund-raiser this evening at the Grand Hyatt may have some unwanted guests.
A diehard Clinton loyalist is trying to organize a picket at the meeting to demand that Clinton delegates not be obliged to declare support for Obama at the Democratic convention in August. A reader sent over one of the daily e-mails distributed by former Clinton campaign volunteer and fund-raiser Ricki Lieberman, who calls for other Clinton loyalists to assemble and protest.
"Wednesday we meet at 45th and Park Ave at 5:00pm. We then march to the Grand Hyatt at 42nd and Park at 5:30. Then we flyer and hold signs demanding that Hillary be on a full roll call," the email begins.
It goes on to cite a bunch of negative newspaper articles about Obama and argues that Clinton is still the Democrats’ best chance of winning the White House.
