Most Democrats still seem to be in a state of denial about this. To them I say, do the math. Sabutai confirmed the theory here over a month ago with this thesis. After the final primary dust settles, neither Clinton nor Obama will have sufficient pledged delegates to win the nomination outright. There is still a finite probability that one of the candidates will drop out, or do or say something really stupid, but the reality of their persona is such that neither is likely to fold their campaign tent before the bitter end. Thus, the Democratic National Convention in August will be the event of the political year, and perhaps the decade. Did I say decade, I meant century.
After the truly miserable start of the century by the current dysfunctional administration, the Democratic Party must rise up and fix this mess. The “superdelegates” now have an unusual and serious responsibility. Certainly, they have already been feeling the weight of this based on the phone calls they have taken. When Bill Clinton or Ted Kennedy is actually doing the phone banking, these delegates have got to sense that something big is afoot.
We will be sending 26 of these special envoys to the National Convention from Massachusetts. There are several sites on the internet that track these delegates, but I thought I’d put together a simple page
that shows their current sentiment and when they made their decision.
