Why Would Super Delegates From WY or MS or Any Other Red State Support Clinton At The Convention?
Edited on Sat Mar-08-08 06:29 PM by cryingshame
And it's not just red states.

Why would any super delegate from any red or PURPLE state or any state that Clinton has said doesn't matter... WHY WOULD THEY SUPPORT HER AT THE CONVENTION?

Clinton already lost several weeks ago.

She expects to not only go into the Convention down 100-150 Pledged Delegates but to expect Super Delegates from states she's ignored and insulted to support her?

She is a fool.

He has proven what a poor choice he would have been for President.

57. Dean had nothing to do with their decision
to up their primaries against party rules. Place the blame where it belongs, not at the feet of Howard Dean. And dont forget, the candidates agreed to this before a single vote was cast. You cant go changing the rules.

59. No, you can disenfranchise voters, because rules are more important. That is wrong.
The candidates agreed not to campaign. Dean did not resolve the problem. I don't care who or why, disenfranchisement is the greater wrong.

67. Excuse me Dogman...no one has been disenfranchised
Florida and Michigan voters have their constitutional right to vote in the General election. (yes, I know this is florida we are talking about) These are Party primaries. They chose to violate the rules, there are repercussions for doing so. They were warned and they ignored the warnings. All Candidates agreed to these terms.

I don't recall Hillary last year crying about the disenfranchisement of Florida and Michigan voters then. Oh but now when it could make a difference in her totals, she is the voter's advocate.

Rules are rules.

I hope they figure out a way to settle the matter. But Dean is not responsible for what happened. I respect his decision, and not backing down...Otherwise we would have primaries for the next election, directly following the November election.

18. Really?
Should he have stopped Harold Ickes of the Clinton campaign from voting to punish FL and MI?

You read that right? Harold Ickes of the Clinton campagn voted to puish FL and MI for their early primaries by stripping the of all delegates.

Harold Ickes--you know of the Clinton campaign...


Chuck Todd of MSNBC mentioned this on this Saturday's Tim Russert show.

Evidently Chuck Todd was there when Harold Ickes (now of the Clinton campaign) voted to punish FL and MI!

I guess he as for it, before he was against it.

Or is he just another adviser who has his own opinions as a Party leader? I really don't care what he was for or against, I am against the disenfranchisement of voters and the long term damage to the Democratic Party this issue is building. The new 50 states - 2 strategy?

You know, I don't like the rules either, but that doesn't make them retroactively change.

For the Hillary camp to claim that oer half the states don;t count, but the ones who violated rules somehow do is sort of a weak argument.

ean was in charge.It was his problem to resolve.

Should dean use nudemocratic means to subvert power in the DNC?

Seems like a rather strange argument.

Hillary is not saying not to count the votes of the voters of any states.

So? It isn't her call either.

Did the individual voters violate any rules?

No. they simply voted in a beauty contest.

Disenfranchisement is wrong.

Then complain to Hillary campaign strategist, Harold Ickes and the rest of the Rules committee.

No. I wrote that it is his job to save this Party. That would take the same set of skills needed to be President. He seems lacking right now in his DNC job. Leadership is not unitary executive, that is actually a failure of leadership too.

To do anything, even if it is outside thscope of his powers.

So, in effect, yes that is what you wrote.

He's done more than save the party, he resurrected it. To blame him for the rules committee, poor decisions in FL and MI is like blaming a cop or the judge in a traffic court for getting a speeding ticket.

51. Cops and Judges are enforcers, not leaders.
So Dean should not get credit for the 50 state strategy? That belongs to the committees? A governor who sgned on to a 25 MPH limit on a super highway would be to blame for speeding tickets IMO. Then again ,speeding is voluntary, having your votes ignored is not.

56. The point is
neither the judge or the cop are responsible for the ticket. The driver is. If the speed limit is stupid, it is still not an excuse to break it without expecting consequences.

To fix the law, one must address those who put the law in place. Crying to or screaming at the judge or the cop will not remedy the problem.

65. the current totals are sure wrong
not beig onthe ballot in MI kills that as a valid election. Not campaigning in either state sort of kills both as valid.

How many people did;t bother because they knew it wouldn't count? Should they be disenfranchised?

Once again we can get into pissing match about this for an extended time. You aren't going to resolve it and neither can I.

There is no way to deal with this situation to make everybody happy.

Damn the stupid rules, and damn the FL and Mi legislature for breaking them in spite of their stupidity.

The same as the pledged delegates are split, most likely the superdelegates will split. Clinton has not lost until Obama wins. You are a fool because you don't understand the system, she does.

37. same link
but using the contests that count:

Popular Vote Total - - Obama 13,005,114 Clinton 12,414,786

Of course this leaves out the caucuses of Iowa, Nevada, Washington & Maine, and does not include a rational muliplier for Caucus voters.

Even with those numbers, OBama is 590328 ahead.

46. Then what is the voter's recourse?
If the SC or the DNC says their vote does not count, it is wrong. The voter has no control or choice, except to follow their state law. Instead of calling Hillary names, people should be calling for a solution to disenfranchisement. If votes were not counted in NY or LA, for Obama, that is wrong also. I want a transparent and fair system more than any one candidate.

55. No
But if you address the wrong with the \wrong person (ie Dean over the rules committee or the MI and FL legslatures) then you are trying to cure the wrong ailment.

It is like breaking an arm, and trying to mend it by splinting a leg.

No one is arguing the arm isn't broken, but applying first aid to the leg is not the approach to deal with it.

8. You make a great point.
Clinton is burning bridges and scorching the earth. She will not be able to convince the supers that she is the one that can bring in the red states (You cant win on blue states alone Ala 2004) And they will likely flock to Obama if they have not done so by then.

19. Clinton sole rationale f/continuing the Primary is the possibility a majority of Super Delegates
will support her.

So why should a Super Delegate from Wyoming or any of the states she has ignored and insulted VOTE FOR HER?

You and she have just said they don't matter. They are nothing to the Democratic party.

And by the way, that is how Bill Clinton and Terry McAuliffe treated these fellow Democrats up until we were able to get Howard Dean innto the DNC.

It doesn't include even the raw caucus voters, much less a reasonable modifier for each caucus goer that represents the states voters who couldn't make it to those contests because of time and situation constraints.

33. real clear politics show an Obama lead of
13,005,114 to 12,414,786

And that does not include all Caucus votes, or a reasonable multiplier for caucus voters to rationally match their numbers to primary voters.


590,328 behind doesn't equate to leading--especially when Iowa, Nevada, Washington & Maine do not even show in the vote totals in any way, or any of the caucus votes are not modified to reflect the Dem voters they represent.

53. Look up the definition of analogy.
"a correspondence or partial similarity" as in votes not counted.
"a thing that is comparable to something else in significant respects" as in stolen votes.

66. A webster pissing match...let's not
You have points,but the analogy sucked. Stick with the points.

1> The rules are stupid.

2> The FL and MI legislatures voted to break the rules

3> Those who suffered the most were the voters.

4> Using the totals as they stand disenfranchises the voters who didn;t voter because they knew it wasn't going to count.

5> Neither candidate campaigned in either state.

6> Obama wasnot on the ballot in MI

7> There is no solution that is ging to happily remedy this situation to everyone's satisfaction.

8> You and I arguing about it all night and into next week will do little more than waste hard drive space and band width as neither one of us are empowered to fix it.

69. The SDs would vote for Clinton if they think she has the best chance to win.
That's it. There would be a clear headed evaluation of the candidates chances in the GE, some wheeling and dealing, followed by a decision. There might even be several rounds of that. This idea that some SD from some state is going to feel that Hillary "ignored or insulted" their state is tenuous at best.
