"I’ve got news for all of you – McCain will be the next US president"

The furious outburst of this Clinton-crazy campaigner will go down as the best bit of the closing stages of the Democratic trail. Harriet Christian is fed up with being overlooked because, as "an older American woman", she's like "a second class citizen". When the final vote comes round, she'll be voting for McCain.

The furious outburst of this Clinton-crazy campaigner will go down as the best bit of the closing stages of the Democratic trail. Harriet Christian is fed up with being overlooked because, as "an older American woman", she's like "a second class citizen". When the final vote comes round, she'll be voting for McCain.

The Democratic National Committee met in Washington on Saturday to decide what to do with the votes from the Florida and Michigan primaries, where neither Obama nor Clinton campaigned. The committee finally opted to count each vote as half; a decision that will almost definitely see Hillary out of the race.

Harriet Christian, a pro-Clinton activist from Manhattan, travelled to Washington to protest against the commission's decision. Enraged, she said perhaps a little loudly what Clinton fans usually keep quiet about.
