Raise your hand if you think the super delegate system is fair and just. Anyone? Senator Clinton, please put your hand down.
Oh, you can try to rationalize its existence all you want- that the Party makes the rules- and should, and that they now have the prerogative to shoot down popular, yet incompetent nominees (like the Clintons are saying about Obama), like they were unable to do with President Carter.
All of that may be well and good, but here is a fact:
Obama and Hillary are on pace to go down to the wire. He will not give up, and neither will she. Her plan is still to take Texas and Ohio, and since Hispanics seems to love Hillary, she may very well win the nomination by taking Texas.
That being said, there is good chance that the Party Elite will be determining who get the nomination. The Party Elite…super delagates such as William Jefferson Clinton, and a 21-year old student named Jason Rae.
Jason Rae…who was being courted by Chelsea Clinton at a breakfast. They talked about talked about mobilizing young people to get involved in politics. She spoke about what states her mother can carry in the general election, and what demographics favor her candidacy. The two talked about how the campaign’s operations.
Gee, I wonder who Jason Rae- who gets to vote twice- will vote for?
Jason Rae…who has the power to alter the timeline and take away a fair vote for Obama and hand it to Chelsea’s mother, Hillary.
I say give the voting power to the people, no matter how “stupid” they may be. A true democracy- an idealistic one, sure- should be determined by popular vote only. I realize this country was never about popular vote (originally in the 1600′s only members of the Church could vote for Governor), but I say let a McDonalds’ cashier determine who is the nominee over the PARTY ELITE. If they want Jimmy Carter as President SO BE IT.
