For John, BLUF: Probably Both, in Ms Clinton is involved. Nothing to see here; just move along.
Reporter Bradford Richardson of The Hill gives us "Sanders: DNC using debates to rig primary".
The Instapundit notes "Hillary performs badly in debates, so the process was structured to protect her." Then he excerpts:
Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) believes the Democratic Party is using its meager primary debate line-up to rig the nomination process.At least the Republicans are having a free for all that is interesting and exciting.
“I do,” Sanders reportedly responded when asked Friday whether he agrees with former Maryland Gov. Martin O’Malley’s assertion that the debate schedule is “rigged.”
The two Democratic presidential candidates were speaking at the Democratic National Committee (DNC) Summer Meeting in Minneapolis on Friday.
“This sort of rigged process has never been attempted before,” O’Malley said in his speech earlier Friday.
The DNC has drawn criticism for scheduling only four debates before the early primary states cast their votes, and six total throughout the election cycle.
