Tony Rodham for Barr?

Hillary's brother is ... er, bitter:
[Tony] Rodham, a self-described “yellow dog Democrat all my life,” is unsure who he would support in November if Clinton is not the party's standard bearer.
"If my sister doesn’t end up with the nomination, I gotta take a look at who I’m gonna vote for,” he said.
Does that mean, Fiore asked, Rodham would vote for Republican John McCain.
“I didn’t say that. It could be Bob Barr,” he said, referring to the Libertarian presidential candidate who, as a House member from Georgia, was a prime player in the impeachment of Rodham's brother-in-law, Bill Clinton.
Yet more fallout from The Big Screw-Over. And Harold Ickes says, all the way to Denver, baby!

UPDATE: E-mail from Team Hillary:
Today’s results are a victory for the people of Florida who will have a voice in selecting our Party’s nominee and will see its delegates seated at our party’s convention. The decision by the Rules and Bylaws Committee honors the votes that were cast by the people of Florida and allocates the delegates accordingly.
We strongly object to the Committee’s decision to undercut its own rules in seating Michigan’s delegates without reflecting the votes of the people of Michigan.
The Committee awarded to Senator Obama not only the delegates won by Uncommitted, but four of the delegates won by Senator Clinton. This decision violates the bedrock principles of our democracy and our Party.
We reserve the right to challenge this decision before the Credentials Committee and appeal for a fair allocation of Michigan’s delegates that actually reflect the votes as they were cast.
Bitter, bitter, bitter! I love the bit about how this "violates the bedrock principles" of the Democratic Party. Pray tell, what principles are these? The shameless pursuit of power? OK, that's one "bedrock principle." Can anybody name another?
