BOSTON (CBS) – Marisa DeFranco, a former candidate for the U.S. Senate seat up for grabs in November, sits down with Dan to talk about the political machine and how big party politics really work. Massachusetts Democrats kept her off the ballot by strongly encouraging delegates to vote for the favorite, Elizabeth Warren. Now, with the Republican Party considering barring Ron Paul delegates from the national convention, the Massachusetts Democratic Party has attacked the GOP for silencing voices within their own ranks. Is this really a different issue, or is this hypocrisy at its finest?
