Chris, I know that you have been counting delegates, and that you are well aware that Deval Patrick will get (at least) 50% of the delegates in attendance on the first (and therefore only) ballot. Therefore there will be no second ballot.
In asking for my vote on the “first” ballot, it is clear that your campaign is somehow underestimating the number of Patrick delegates or that you don’t understand that the rules have changed since your last convention. Or perhaps, more insidiously, you are trying to trick me into voting for you.
Isn’t it enough that you used an erroneous interpretation of the rules to get access to the convention in the first place? Now you have resorted to implying to delegates that there will be more than one ballot. Please stop trying to trick me.
