After the Democratic "machine" ran around whining because Bush beat Gore, can you imagine the spin they will argue if Sanders beats Clinton, but Clinton becomes the nominee?

And then imagine, if Clinton loses, how the left will run around forever blaming the 2016 election loss on the Democratic "machine" and how it was rigged.

I wonder how many Democrats will revolt and switch parties etc over it..

Why would the party, be any different than the candidates in the party?

Bill Clinton and Bernie Sanders are Super Delegates? Sweet gig!

This is just another political bargaining chip or payoff for support. Looks like the entire black caucus is listed. No wonder they endorsed Hilary.

I'm having too much danged fun watching the Berniebots melt down over this non-issue. Before long they'll be too traumatized to post memes fed them by right-wing shills.

And I'm going to quit pointing out the GOP also has super delegates because it's going to be sooo funny watching the Trumpets go when the GOP party leaders throw all their delegate votes to the establishment candidate on the 2nd ballot!

These aren't Bernie supporters. Look at the posting history of those who keep going on and on about it. It is primarily Trump supporters and others on the far right.

You're just jealous of my dalmation puppy coat. Maybe my next one will be made from soft fluffy wolf cub pelts ...

You're right of course. I have friends IRL who are genuine Bernie supporters and they don't carry on so.

So, let me get this straight, after reading wikipedia (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Superdelegate)

1. Both parties have them.
2. Republicans have rules that bind them based on state primary results.
3. Democrats have independent ones that can vote for whoever they feel like voting for and can change their vote whenever they feel like doing so.
4. As per DWS, it also seems like the "diversity" is "segregated" when it comes to superdelegates because they do not want to have them having to deal with each other...

How did I do?
