    I thought Americans bragged about their freedom. Why can't Mr. Clinton decide not to attend any meeting without prejudice?

    Cheers,

    Because, as a party, the Democrats are supposed to show full support for their selected candidate.

    As one of the "premiere" Democrats, a previous Democratic president who does not attend can be construed as a rift in the ranks.

    Either the Democratic party is fully behind their nomination for the position of president, or they're setting themselves up for a potential loss.

    Same goes for Republicans.
