[T]he superdelegate system is doing exactly what it was designed to do: defend the Democratic Party from Democratic voters. --Ted R. Bromund
Donna Brazile a Democrat superdelegate and campaign manger for Al Gore’s 2000 presidential bid has threaten to leave the Democrat Party if her fellow superdelegates decide this Democrat candidate process contrary to the vote of the Democrat voters.
It is against that backdrop that a group of rich and powerful Hillary Clinton backers are pressuring House Speaker Nancy Pelosi to withdraw her statements that superdelegates should support the will of the majority of voters.
They believe that superdelegate should go against the will of the voters and appoint Hillary Clinton as the nominee of the Democrat Party in spite of the fact that Sen. Barack Obama is presently ahead in the pledged delegate count and not to mention the fact that numerically Sen. Clinton has no possibility to over take him in the pledged delegate vote.
You remember the 2000 Florida presidential campaign between George W. Bush and Albert A. Gore. You remember the alleged disenfranchisement of Florida voters and the slogan, “Count every vote, every vote counts.”
Back then Democrats felt that ballot confusion and the inability to punch through paper voting ballots prevented citizens from exercising their constitutional guaranteed rights to vote. They blamed Republicans for their voting woes when most of their problems happened in polling places that were completely under Democrat control.
Al Gore threw the election into the Florida courts the process then when through to the Florida Supreme court which was appealed to the U.S. Supreme Court. And because of the outcome at the U.S. Supreme court Democrats felt that the elections were stolen.
In essence what the U.S. Supreme court decided was that the Florida court should not have intervened, that voting process should have progressed without court interference that was not the ruling Democrats wanted so they claimed that the U.S. Supreme stole the presidential elections and appointed George Bush president. How twisted a claim!
Now 8 years later and according to David Saltonstall of the Daily News more than 14 million Americans have voted in this Democratic primary yet this election primary can be stolen from the voters quicker than a Floridian can say Chad! How?
Superdelegates that’s how. The superdelegate’s job is to bequeath the nomination to the Democrat candidate that they feel would be the best nominee regardless of how 14 million of you voted. The nominee is chosen by 795 party insiders. Normally the number of superdelegates would be 796 however it is presently minus one because of a death and a new delegate has not been assigned yet.
If Democrats who have protested so viscerally that 2000 and 2004 were stolen from the voters stand idly by and allow Democrat Party elites to dictate who the Democrat nominee will be in spite of the vote of the people or against the vote of the people then the Democrats are hypocrites and not fit to lead in this country.
Democrats for 8 years have blamed Republicans for their political misfortunes and if these same Democrats allow their own Party members to steal away their choice by vote, how can these Democrat hypocrites hold their heads up after the political hell that they've put this country through for what they called stolen elections?
Superdelegate is a Democrat code word that means that Democrat Party elites don’t trust their Democrat voting constituents’ ability to make the right choice for their Party.
Democrat superdelegates are training wheels for the Democrat unwashed masses the first sign of a Fascist like attempt of government control of the people and another in the long list of reasons why Democrat paradoxes such as superdelegates make them unfit to lead this great Nation.
