The time has come for the superdelegates to speak up- with a loud and certain voice that the candidate with the most pledged delegates will be the nominee period.
It has become painfull obvious to Hillary that she cannot mathmatically win the pledged delegates and rather than accept that and move on, she has chosen a path that will destory the Democratic Party for decades. She has decided that she will try to steal the nomination at the convention. It is time that the Superdelegates let it be known that no such non sense will be entertained and that it is time to stop the foolishness and accept reality. It is time for Al Gore and Howard Dean to speak up and let HillBill know that there is no "entitlement" to the nomination.
If Obama wishes to offer Hill the VP slot, that is up to him. But those who care about the party and its future need to speak up now. As I said it is not possible for her to catch Obama in pledged delegates.

It would be best for all concerned, including Hillary Clinton, if she gracefully bowed out. She cannot win the most pledged delegates, nor will she get the most votes, nor can she otherwise wrest the nomination from Obama without significantly damaging the Democratic party and her own legacy (which she is damaging more every day, it seems). She fought the good fight. Time to hang them up and help ensure that the Dems take back the White House.

Then why even have the super delegate system? Is is because the democrat party does not trust its constituents to vote correctly? The democrat party is is the nanny state party. We'll redistribute wealth to the people we say need it. Don't worry about birth control, we have a vacuum for you, and we'll have the tax payers pick up the tab. Vote democrat, but don't worry about who you vote for, because the 'elite' democrats are the ones who are going to pick the correct nominee for you.

I think what Reid was referring to yesterday is the idea that the superdelegates will declare their support sooner than later.



"Bredesen is doing something about his concerns. He was in Washington this week to promote his idea for holding a “superdelegate primary” in June, in which the 795 party bigwigs would gather to hear one last time from Clinton and Obama before casting a final vote."

The primary is not over so why should Hillary be deprived of the other states before a decision is made... are you getting nervous Obama people? You should be. Hopefully the super delegates have more intelligence than the general public who voted for Obama. I am sure half of them are now wishing they could take back their vote.

Nice, the average person is not smart enough to vote. Why not just submit voters to an IQ test (in 50 different languages). "Sorry the democrat elite does not trust you to vote for the right candidate because you failed the test." Of course you could always waive the testing requirement for Yale and Wellesley graduates.
