Those Complaining About Hillary Clinton’s Superdelegates Don’t Remember Bush v. Gore 2000 Presidential Election.

With any election you have to play and WIN by the pre-stated rules.

Superdelegates, whether you like them or not, are very much a part of the Democratic Party apparatus and rules. They feel that the party needs them and the notion and composition of the Superdelegates would have been implemented by the PARTY democratically, following the established parliamentary rules. So you have to abide by them. If you don’t like them get them changed or leave the party.

It is laughable when ANY American complains about proper representation in Presidential elections.

The U.S. does not have a Presidential election that genuinely represents the popular vote.

The 2000 elections highlighted that mightily.

Al Gore got more of the POPULAR VOTE but that did NOT matter.

President is chosen by Electoral College votes.

No different to having Superdelegates.

Q.E.D.

Ahead of Super Tuesday 2016 have you seen Hillary Clinton’s lead over Bernie Sanders with the Superdelegates apportioned out!

Staggering.

Bernie Sanders Supporters Are Not Rich Because Like Bernie They Suck At Math.

Of course you will never be rich if you fritter away your hard earned money (or money you get us handouts) on lost causes. Rich people, on the whole, are good at not wasting their money on lost causes. Jeb Bush folding his campaign is a classic case in point. Rich Republicans are NOT going to waste money once they worked out that the math just does not add up.

As long Hillary Rodham Clinton stays in the race Bernie Sanders cannot overtake her. It is mathematically IMPOSSIBLE because of two reasons: all Democratic primary races have proportional delegate allocations and Superdelegates.

Bernie will have to WIN all the remaining states 77% to 23% to overtake Hillary.

Well Kosher pigs would have to fly to make that happen. Even in Iowa he didn’t win that BIG and I doubt whether he will win with that majority even in Vermont.

So Bernie Sanders doggedly carrying on — angry, sputtering (and spreading germs) and losing — is irresponsible. This has become a BIG ego trip for him in his dotage.

The BEST Campaign Reform that Bernie can pull off is to STOP his campaign!

He is exploiting poor people who are not good at math.

Please ….

Don’t waste money — even if you got it as a handout.

Clinton will most likely walk away from South Carolina with at least 61 delegates to Bernie’s 41.

Lot of people, many of them (tellingly) Bernie supporters, just do NOT seem to get the raison d’être as to why the Democratic Party (the DNC) has Superdelegates.

Delegates that honor the will of the people are the NORMAL delegates! That is already in place. These are the so called PLEDGED delegates. They reflect the will of the voters. Done. Given.

The whole point of having Superdelegates, per the DNC, is to temper the will of the voters IF proven, professional democrats — many of whom have won elections — believe that the will of the voters may not be to the best strategic interest of the Party.

Simple as that.

Plus why single out New Hampshire. There are Superdelegates in every State. There were Superdelegates in Iowa.

Plus why should folks from outside of New Hampshire have any say in our Superdelegates.

Here is something that will get the Bernie folks riled. Bill Clinton is a Superdelegate in New York State! Guess who will get his vote.

The AP equivalent of the CNN numbers shown above. Click to ENLARGE. The ratio is still the same. Click to ENLARGE. Google “democratic primary delegate” to get LATEST version of this from AP via Google.


Why the Bernie Sanders’ crowd REFUSES to acknowledge these numbers is a mystery to I. Yes, we had similar in 2008 with Obama and Hillary, BUT Obama had a huge lead, nationwide — something Bernie does NOT have and will not have. Sanders cannot, given the proportional distribution of the ‘normal’ delegates, hope to overcome this chasm.
