Clinton's Push For Popular Vote Win May Not Persuade Superdelegates

Clinton's Push For Popular Vote Win May Not Persuade Superdelegates

Commented Apr 2, 2008 at 13:12:12 in Politics

“the popular vote is a flawed metric when you have people voting through different mechanisms ie. caucuses and primaries, that's the whole point of the delegate system, it's as close as you can get to a representation of the will of the people. the fact that the media continues to regurgitate the false notion that the popular vote is an actual count of iall the ndividual voters & caucus goers continues to amaze me.”

“Wait a minute, the "point" of the delegate system is to "correct" a flawed "metric?" Exactly how is that achieved? By giving voters in some districts three times the delegates as voters in other districts? (Not to mention that the caucuses in and of themselves disenfranchise working people; however, Obama benefits from that disenfranchisement.)
You may be kidding yourself, and I realize that Obama supporters play that kidding game pretty much non-stop, but can you REALLY defend your notions as being (1) democratic, and (2) merit-worthy? Maybe meretricious.”

“thank you for pointing out what so many seem to be missing. nobody is going to cancel the remaining primaries, people still can and will vote, so this whole disenfranchisement argument is nonsense. if the nomination had been wrapped up by super tuesday like so many thought, would people be arguing that everyone should stay on the ballot & keep campaigning because there are still states that haven't voted? heck what about those poor people that really want their vote to count for kucinich, put him back on the remaining ballots even though he has no chance of winning and let the democratic process play out. hillary clinton facing the reality that she can't win would not disenfranchise anybody. sure she can feel free to stay in the race, but it's the he's trying to stop you from voting lie, that i have a problem with.”

“all she actually said was that she thought it would work itself out but it could be harmful to the party if it seemed as though the super delegates were overturning the will of the people. her exact quote was something close to "it would be harmful if the super delegates were seen to be overturning the will of the voters as expressed by the pledged delegate count, whoever ends up with the lead." sounds pretty reasonable, she emphasized that the race has always been about delegates, which is true.”

“last night their response was that the clinton's have done more than almost anyone to build up the party and that people shouldn't lecture them about what is and isn't appropriate. huh? talk about entitlement, basically they're saying bill & hill ARE the democratic party and can do whatever the hell they want.”

EyeballKid on Mar 27, 2008 at 16:03:44

“What? Bill and Hillary's best shot caused the 1994 Republican Revolution. Remember? That was when the Dems LOST a majority in the House and when the right wing corporatists grabbed the Dems by their collective nuts and squeezed hard. The squeezing, by the way, hasn't stopped, and the Dems still haven't stopped squealing.

The Clintons are over the hill. They need to take a vacation in the Carribean for about three months, then come back and see what they can do to strengthen the party that they nearly destroyed. Bill Clinton was taking on statesman-like status until he began his circus barking routine for Hillary. Now he sounds like a common political hack. Oh.... that's right. He'll get no respect. But that's the game of politics, ain't it, Bill?”
