This op-ed in HuffPost is the most arrogant, repulsive bit of nonsense I've read in the past couple of days. The author claims that because Hillary ran such a divisive campaign during the last, "quixotic" phase, it is her responsibility to heal the wounds in the party that she, and only she, has created. Therefore, in order to be forgiven by the more noble of the party, she must definitively declare in a concession speech and often thereafter:

1. That she was treated fairly in all ways (ed. note: all evidence to the contrary).
2. Her loss was due to her own poor choices.
3. She'll be fine and will continue to fight the good fight for women's causes.
4. The campaign demonstrated that women can do anything, that there are no more glass ceilings.
5. She wouldn't have won no matter what the DNC rules were, and her name recognition was more powerful that actual campaigning.
6. She MUSN'T say the party rules should be changed; and it would be helpful if she would actually say outright that the rules were actually designed to help people like her.
7. Neither she nor her supporters are owed anything by Obama or the party, and they'll be delighted to bow down and take another one you-know-where for the privilege.

And if she does all this, she should be invited to keynote the convention.

I'm speechless.

This sounds to me as if it's patterned on the old Soviet style "confession".

This is where the person has to read her/his mea culpa that is written by those in charge.

Not surprising from huffy post but still disgusting.

Balderdash - Huffpost has been in on the fix from the beginning.

HuffPost has become an endless source of amusement. I avoid the stupidity of the Obama blogs, but Steve Soto at the Left Coaster (NOT an Obama blog) does provide unintentional guffaws as he tries to make Obama talking points sound intelligent.

There's some very funny stuff around. It helps to have a couple of drinks or a Xanax or a 'smoke' to enjoy them and not get upset. Read them with voices from Monty Python for extra humor.

How about he goes and F**ks himself. You know, I was tepid about Obama but had no major gripes with him and really decided on Hillary because of her better policies. In fact, she actually had policies. But it's the Obama supporters like this who are doing him no favors at all, in fact will lose it for him in the general. In November, there will be some pretty long faces as they type more crap editorials and find ways to blame it on Clinton. I'll bet money on that.
