Super Delegates? You’re kidding me.
I am hoping that no one will disagree with what I am about to write regardless of Party affiliation (D/R/I). For the record I am an Independent — strong Independent. Super Delegates? Really? This is unbelievable that the voters in a State can be trumped by elected officials because they have been given a “separate vote” that is equal to the delegates that are awarded in State Primaries and Caucuses. I am not a Bernie fan, but what the DNC and selected officials are doing seems to me to be inconsistent with the Framers intent of voting – both individually as well as through representation. I listened to the distinguished (other) Senator from Vermont – and he said that regardless of the State vote – he was going to give his super delegate vote to Mrs Clinton. What? This can’t be right. Who picks them? What is the purpose? Why are Super Delegate votes even allowed to exist? Clearly this is a mechanism to prevent “outside” candidates from having a fair chance at winning the Democratic nomination. Simply disgusting.
