How Super Are the Superdelegates?

Am I the only one who thinks that idea of superdelegates is the height of arrogance on the part of the Democratic Party? Isn't the Democratic Party supposed to stand up for the little guy against the powerful elite? Doesn't the Democratic Party care that every votes counts and no one gets disenfranchised? How can it be, then, that their nominee is most likely going to be chosen by a bunch of rich, powerful, white guys with no regard for what the average voter thinks? It's absolutely amazing to me.

Not at all; although, that's just one of the many, many contradictions involving today's Democratic party. From what I can tell it has been a very, very long time since they were really all that concerned for the little guy...aside from determining what bribes to offer him in order for him to vote to keep them in power.

"....Doesn't the Democratic Party care that every votes counts and no one gets disenfranchised?...."

Nope, apparently not.

"....How can it be, then, that their nominee is most likely going to be chosen by a bunch of rich, powerful, white guys with no regard for what the average voter thinks?...."

Kind of ironic isn't it? But then the Democratic Party has become the party of "shut up and do as you're told: we know what's best for you", so I guess this superdelegate stuff shouldn't be too surprising.

Interestingly enough, they're considered to be the "progressives" in this country.

Robb, you just need to accept that Democrats are simply smarter and better people than the rest of us and that we should just stop questioning them and do what they would have us do...and be thankful for the compassion that they have towards all of us worms beneath their hallowed feet.
