Not complaining, just saying in case you didn't mean to project a negative connotation on neutral discussion http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Democrat_Party_(phrase)

    I think I’ll file that one away for further use reference…

    Re: The Democratic Race To November

    Here is some good info for you guys. It explains the super delegate deal pretty well

    http://article.nationalreview.com/?q...YyNDMxNDMwYzY=


    Political historian Alvin Felzenberg took some questions from National Review Online editor Kathryn Lopez in the run-up to the Potomac Primary, which is expected to put Barack Obama further ahead of former “inevitable” nominee Hillary Clinton. She is still a woman with a plan, Felzenberg warns.Kathryn Jean Lopez: What is a “superdelegate” in the Democratic party?

    Avin Felzenberg: A superdelegate is a person appointed to state delegations after voters have chosen among delegates to Democratic conventions in primary elections. While most elected delegates have pledged to support a specific candidate on the first ballot, some run on “uncommitted slates.” Superdelegates comprise approximately 20 percent of the number of delegates necessary to designate a presidential nominee. After the chaos that ensued at the Democratic national convention in Chicago (both inside the hall and out) and the circus activists committed to peacenik George McGovern put on in 1972, pressure arose within the party to designate a certain number of grown-ups to maintain at least a semblance of decorum. Party elders became apoplectic when a college student committed to McGovern defeated Averell Harriman for delegate in the New York primary, a McGovernite majority denied Chicago Mayor Richard Daley and his delegation seating at the convention, efforts by feminists to foist a Texas politician Cissy Farenthold onto McGovern’s ticket, delaying McGovern’s delivery of Bob Shrum’s prepared acceptance speech into the wee hours of the morning.

    Amazingly, there's a 20-ish superdelegate. He's going to be contributing to some of the most important events in the world while balancing homework and his college social life

    Re: The Democratic Race To November

    I guess since CNN "says so" we can now accept Obama as the frontrunner.
    Unless of course there is a bunch of superdelegate activity that somehow preserves Hillary's non existant lead

    NAACP head wants barred delegates seated

    http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/20080213/...legates_blacks

    In a Feb. 8 letter to DNC Chairman Howard Dean, NAACP chairman Julian Bond expressed "great concern at the prospect that million of voters in Michigan and Florida could ultimately have their votes completely discounted." Refusing to seat the states' delegations could remind voters of the "sordid history of racially discriminatory primaries," he said.


    How in the hell does someone like that even handle potty training? Seriously, does someone just change this moron's diaper periodically?
