Speaking of splits ...
Posted by: McQ on Thursday, March 27, 2008

Big buck Clinton supporters try to remind Nancy Pelosi that they've paid for a certain outcome in this election and they expect her to act like it:
Taking umbrage, a list of big Democratic donors who support the campaign of Sen. Hillary Clinton, D-N.Y., have written a letter to Pelosi (subsequently released to the press) pointing out that "Several states and millions of Democratic voters have not yet had a chance to cast their votes" and arguing "None of us should make declarative statements that diminish the importance of their voices and their votes. We are writing to say we believe your remarks on ABC News This Week on March 16th did just that.

"During your appearance, you suggested super-delegates have an obligation to support the candidate who leads in the pledged delegate count as of June 3rd , whether that lead be by 500 delegates or 2. This is an untenable position that runs counter to the party’s intent in establishing super-delegates in 1984…"
So there, Madam Speaker. Of course what they're objecting too is Pelosi's tacit support for the Obama version of the duties of super delegates and not what the Clinton supporters consider the actual reason they were established.

And that of course, was to be in a position to overturn the "will of the people" if necessary. So get it straight Nancy-baby.

Sure it is, the masterminds of the vast right wing conspiracy already sent out the memo.

Look, Bruce, let’s be honest;

The system involving Super-Delegates was contrived so as to prevent what the leadership sees as undesirable candidates from being nominated. In the original case, it was Jesse Jackson, who was seen as way too liberal. These days, it’s the wife of our first black President, who is seen as way too conservative.

To my thought, that’s the best indicator of how the baseline politics of the Democrats have shifted to the extreme left... and how much MoveOn dictates what happens with the Democrats, anymore.

What I find most amusing of all is that they’ve no clue the destructive course they’ve set for themselves.
