Democrats and Super delegates



In the Democrat party, there are many delegates from the state primaries and caucus results. There are also super delegates. All the Democrat members of the House and Senate, and all ex-Presidents, are automatically delegates by virtue of the offices they hold.

The overwhelming majority of the superdelegates have promised Hillary they will vote for her. (After all, Bill has had many years to get people to owe him favors.)

So, if Barack wins most of the people's votes, but not by much, he could expect to lose the nomination--because the Democrat party is not ultimately representative.

There are people who are worried that Hillary will take the nomination any way she can get it, and Barack's supporters will be upset if they have won the most votes from the people and are nonetheless denied the nomination.shocked_yellowshocked_yellowshocked_yellowshocked_yellow

Many things. The Christian faith, news items, science, events in my life, investigations into the Illinois governor's criminal activities. The usual. :D
