Will DNC deny Hillary a vote?

The Messiah must be nominated by universal acclamation, some Democrats say:
Some prominent New York delegates who supported Hillary Clinton say it would be a bad idea for her name to be placed in nomination at the Democratic convention next month. . . .
"It would be wrong," said former New York State Democratic Chairman Herman (Denny) Farrell, a superdelegate who strongly supported Clinton's candidacy. "There should not be a roll call ... they should unify."
A full roll call could be a reminder of how divided Democrats were.
"I don't see any compelling reason to do anything that is not directed towards unity," said City Councilman John Liu of Queens, a delegate pledged to Clinton. "She said she's supporting Sen. Obama and now we just all need to be on the same page."
Back when Hillary supposedly "conceded" the nomination, I kept pointing out: Until she releases her delegates from their pledges and tells them to vote for Obama on the first ballot, she hasn't actually conceded anything. And why should she?

What has Obama done for Hillary, except steal her superdelegates? His supporters aren't helping Hillary with her campaign debt, and they're still badmouthing her:
"Why would I help pay off debts that Hillary amassed simply to keep damaging Senator Obama?" . . .
"Writing checks to politicians I don't like is not at the top of my list."
"Not a penny for that woman. Or her husband. Or -- god forbid -- Mark Penn" . . .
When the Obamaphiles say "unity," what they really mean is: "Shut up, you loser bitch!" They're sore winners. I think they are seriously underestimating the potential of Hillary and her supporters to sabotage him. And they're not really giving her any incentive to play nice.
