    Superdelegates will be the difference. He says it won't matter what happened in the primaries.

    So tell me again that Republicans disenfranchise voters.

    Wow... so one of Hillary's senior advisers thinks she's going to win this, huh?

    Sounds like the democrat convention is going to go swimmingly well.

    Even if the statement were true, which it isn't, people need to remember that there's no constitutionally enshrined right to vote in primaries, or indeed to have anything to do at all with the selection of a party's nominee. Primaries haven't been around that long. Is it BS that superdelegates might decide things? Sure. But it's not evidence of the disenfranchisement of voters. It's evidence maybe that voters have been convinced that a primary and the general election are the same thing, but it's not disenfranchisement.

    If the Dems nominate Hillary even if Obama has more votes from the people, even the wettest dream from the GOP wouldn't be able to suppress voter turnout as much. John McCain is begging for that opportunity. Hell, his first commercial would talk about how Hillary isn't even the choice of her own party.

    If the Dems do that, I'm done with them. I'm officially joining the fucking Green party or whatever other weird leftist, third-string party we have out here.

    I'll be right behind you. Maybe we'll just start our own party.

    Which is why, if Obama continues on the surge he's been on, he'll be the nominee. However, I think the pause in the election calendar may blunt that somewhat.

    As a Libertarian and Green Party voter, let me just say we aren't weird or leftist. But we're certainly third-string.
