Chaos Coming? (Scroll for updates!)

Oh, I hope so. Tornados around Denver aren't the only things swirling around this convention.

Bill Clinton isn't happy.

A delegate from Wisconsin won't be showing up at the DNC. That's because she has endorsed McCain. Check out her video below:

The young evangelical and editor of Relevant Magazine slated to deliver the benediction on the DNC's first night backs out at the last minute.

Although former Presidential Vice Presidential candidate John Edwards won't be at the convention for obvious reasons, the guy who kept the press at bay long enough for Edwards to fool America is now working for Biden to handle his press.

The Detroit Mayor Kwame Kilpatrick, a superdelegate to the Democratic National Convention, once called a "great mayor" by Obama and now charged with felony charges of perjury and obstruction of justice, and on separate assault charges, sadly won't be attending the convention due to the electronic tether around his ankle.

Black Republicans hit Obama...hard:

And the hits just keep on coming. Texas Republicans are making sure Obama regrets ever bringing up the housing issue with McCain:

Update: You think the Clintons aren't happy? Well neither is Pennsylvania Gov. Ed. Rendell:

Pennsylvania Gov. Ed Rendell was supposed to give “closing remarks” during this afternoon’s Shorenstein Center-sponsored panel discussion with all three Sunday show moderators — NBC’s Tom Brokaw, ABC’s George Stephanopoulous and CBS’s Bob Schieffer — but instead, he opened up a can of worms about bias in 2008 election coverage."Ladies and gentleman, the coverage of Barack Obama was embarrassing," said Rendell, in the ballroom at Denver's Brown Palace Hotel. "It was embarrassing."...“MSNBC was the official network of the Obama campaign," Rendell said.

Update II: Tonight Martin Luther King Jr.'s niece will be leading a pro-life vigil in Denver.

The "Light in the Darkness" vigil, organized by the Denver Archdiocese's Respect Life office and the Office of Black Catholics, will begin at 7:30pm in Martin Luther King Park (E.38th St.), one block from the Planned Parenthood of the Rocky Mountains abortion clinic, and will end with a candlelight procession all around the perimeter of the new clinic.

Dr. Alveda C. King had this to say:

"The fight against abortion is a new frontier in the Civil Rights Movement," states Dr. King. "We are not following Martin's dream if we do not stand up for the voiceless."

Update III: Hillary tells her delegates that she is voting of Obama, but they can vote they want to. I love how Hillary is just manipulating all this. She looks wide eyed innocent at reporters and insists that she fully supports Obama, but she so wants that roll call and hear her name over and over. Her and Obama are working on that roll call thing and Obama just wants it over quickly. Heh.

Update IV: Hillary: "I got more votes, give or take." She is perfectly evil! Now that she isn't a threat. I love it!

Update V: Just keep believing: CNN reports:

Reports that Clinton was planning to ask her delegates to support Obama were greeted by some there with angry disbelief. "Have you heard it from her mouth? Have you? Have you? Did her campaign say it on the record?" demanded a woman in a black pro-Hillary t-shirt. "Yeah, I didn't think so," she said, and walked away.

"Yeah, I didn't think so." I'm dying here this is so good.

I think I'll just keep bumping this with updates. Fun week.
