The is deja vu all over again for poor Hillary. The superdelegates are going to pull the rug out from under her like they did in 2008.

ha there would be a real riot if the super delegates went with the candidate who didn't win the popular vote.

They'll throw Hillary under the bus just like 2008 as it becomes more apparent that she has no chance to beat Trump. They hope to get Bernie out before they throw her under the bus, but that plan isn't coming together as they had hoped. They have a real mess! Loving it!

The super delegates should all have waited until the people spoke to make a choice.

The Dems were begging for someone to get in that would 'sharpen her skills' and not make it look like a coronation. Looks like they got one....

Interesting to see how this plays out. Perhaps she has spent too much time already 'resting on her laurels'...

This only means the Super Delegates are a bunch of liars too. They will never vote for Bernie.

I do hope there is huge turnout for Bernie in the remaining races. It will only go to show the hypocrisy of the elite attempting to force Hillary Clinton down the throats of an electorate which doesn't want her.

If you read the rules, they automatically go to the candidate under criminal investigation.

The super delegates probably don't want to tie themselves to Clinton at this point. This is the time to jump from the sinking ship that Hillary is. I know they think McFeeley Biden would be the golden key but just

I do wonder how much of the Bernie vote is "not Hillary".

You mean the 150 superdelegates that are still outstanding. Versus the 524 who have already pledged themselves to Hillary Clinton. And the 40 who have pledged themselves to Bernie Sanders.
