Clinton diehards will protest at convention

WMNF Drive-Time News Thursday | Listen to this entire show:

Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton's name will be placed in nomination at the convention in Denver later this month.

Some Clinton backers had said they would leave the convention after Clinton speaks on Tuesday night, as part of an ongoing protest against Obama's nomination.

Some of those groups say they will do everything they can to create attention in Denver.

One group is called PUMA, Party Unity My A*s. On the group’s website, it says they need 150 Obama delegates to switch to Clinton, to give the New York senator, and not Obama, the nomination.

Will Bower, with PUMA, says his group plans to make a ruckus at the Democratic National Committee in Denver in two weeks. They are one of several groups of Clinton backers and Democrats who refuse to support Barack Obama.
