In the category of "Everything Is Fixed And You Can't Change It", Hillary Clinton is claiming victory in the Democrat nominating process for president before a single caucus or primary vote has been cast or counted. Bloomberg is reporting,
"As Hillary Clinton's campaign seeks to project dominance in a field
that could soon include Vice President Joe Biden, her top advisers
are touting a decisive edge on a little-discussed metric: superdelegate
At the Democratic National Committee meeting in
Minneapolis, where Clinton spoke on Friday, senior Clinton campaign
officials are claiming that she has already secured one-fifth of the
pledges needed to win the Democratic presidential nomination. They come
from current and former elected officials, committee officeholders, and
other party dignitaries.
The campaign says that Clinton currently
has about 130 superdelegates publicly backing her, but a person familiar
with recent conversations in Minneapolis said that officials are
telling supporters and the undecided in the last few days that private
commitments increase that number to more than 440—about 20 percent of
the number of delegates she would need to secure the nomination."
So Joe Biden, Martin O'Malley and Bernie Sanders might as well stay home. The inevitability of Hillary is a fact and there is nothing that can be done to stop her.
What a load of codswallop. This is Clintonesque chicanery at its finest. I hope everyone involved realizes this.
How, in a representative republic, can anything like this happen? Surely these delegates can change their minds? I suppose if they did, they might find themselves Arkancided and replaced. This is a dangerous bunch.
So what if Iowa, Vermont and South Carolina all go for Bernie or one of the other boys? Does that not obligate delegate votes? If it does not, then why vote? The question has to be asked. Are we all disenfranchised?
This is the number one reason this woman has to be stopped. She has no regard for voters. Her only interest is in convention delegates and ultimately power. She is, after all, the Whore of Babylon.
In light of Ms Clinton's little announcement of disregard for the voters, I think these pledged super delegates need to reconsider their pledges.
It may not matter. Hillary may be under indictment by the time the actual election rolls around anyway.
Ya know, if the election were held today, she would lose to Trump anyway. This is what we have come to.
I've often wondered what would happen if everybody stayed home on election day. What would they do? Would they make voting compulsory? I bet they would. What they need to do is allow us to vote for 'none of the above' and also require the winner to have at least 65% of the vote. I'm a dreamer I know. The whole thing is a racket anyway. The nation needs an enema. We need to purge. We need to let the political waste go swirling down the lew. It's time. Are you with me people?
Ground Hog in 2016 anyone? I am accepting Super delegate pledges right now. Let's make it happen. Let's put all those other rodents in their place. After the election I will send them all to Guantanamo as a terrorist threat.
