Amen, Roland Martin.

Charlie Rangel to speak at DNC? Hell to the naw!

Politico.com is reporting that confidants of Harlem Congressman Charlie Rangel are not happy at all with Sen. Barack Obama after the big-time congressman was told to get in line when he sought a speaking role at the Democratic National Convention in Denver.

A major supporter of Sen. Hillary Clinton, Rangel was angling for a spot, but the Obamites made it clear that there are many more folks ahead of him who desire to speak at the convention.

But at least Rangel might get to speak before Reps. Sheila Jackson Lee and Stephanie Tubbs-Jones. I hear the Obama camp want nothing to do with the congresswomen from Texas and Ohio. They were such staunch supporters of Clinton that folks, but what really ticked off the Obama folks were some of the comments made by them, namely Tubbs-Jones.

Trust me, Bob Johnson has a better shot of speaking at the convention than she does!




Tell it, Roland.

THE THOUGHT that ANY of the HHH would be allowed to utter one frigging word at the official convention podium is insane.

IF a Black person is going to speak at that Convention, it will be one that was down with Obama ' Back When'.

PERIOD.

Talk to the hand, Charlie.

I'm not crazy about the line-up so far.

Rangel? Likely a Clinton pick perhaps?

And Mark Warner??? Great guy..but I always thought he was a little dull. Why would he be chosen as the keynote? There are so many other great choices.

I hope this is not a sign that he is a VP finalist.

I think I need to check the latest speakers list.

Why not Duval Patrick? Bill Richardson?

I don't know... maybe Warner will surprise me.

But Rangel is definitely interesting. I personally would have had a CBC ban, lol...

But yeah... party unity and all.
