PUMA is a little excessive. Technically, Obama is not yet the nominee so I don't have any problem with some pressure being exerted on behalf of Hillary to turn it. A challenge is within the rules. Again, technically, she can still be the nominee although she won't be. Once the vote comes through, especially if Michigan and Florida are fully represented but even if they aren't, I fully accept Obama as the legitimate nominee. To challenge him as the nominee beyond that point is counterproductive. But up to that point, he is fair game. Hell, it wasn't so long ago that a sitting President was challenged at the convention.

I think a case can be made that lack of unity hurts the party. I don't think that it hurts democracy.
