Good look back, this thread. Well, I did vote for Lynch and he did lose, as I expected he would.

I never underestimate the power of the anointing--or the rumors.

Bucking the anointing was realy "wasting my vote."

I firmly believe that all political party machinery and weight should stay the hell out of primaries, no matter which political party's machinery and weight it is. The choice of the voters of the Party should be good enough for the relatively few in the leadership of the Party, not the other way 'round. (Is it their goal to foster voter apathy? Because they've been making getting out to vote less and less meaningful. Maybe the acronym should change from GOTV to GOTOTVWW--Get out only the vote we want.)

Then again, God made Super Delegates precisely to ensure that Democratic voters in Presidential primaries did not mess up the nominating agenda of the PTB for the Presidency. Why should Congress and the Senate be any different? Why should they risk overriding a veto of the Imperial Presidency?

The Democrats led the way on that totally undemocratic change, thanks to the same thinking and the same group of most Southern white male Democrats that led to official formation of the Democratic Leadership Council--same group that is now the stronghold of the Republican Party, as well. Funny how that worked. No wonder the Koch Brothers contributed to both the DLC and the Tea Party.

And one of that group of DLC founding Democrats, Hillary Clinton, has been touted for President in 2016 since Obama got re-elected, maybe even before, subject only to her declaring for President.

Indeed, the meme is that no one will even run in that primary if she announces. Concomitantly, if she does announce, she will supposedly clear the field. Or so the meme goes. So, basically, the Democratic Presidential nomination in 2016 currently all rests on a single DLCer, namely Hillary (Billary?).

How very Democratic and democratic! :sarcasm:

So much for any hope of changing the Party from within.

Conservadems rule!

Literally, but not figuratively. Figuratively, Conservative Dems bite.

How very ironic, too, that conservadems smeared Lynch as too conservative.
