Pelosi Does What She Does Best: Surrenders On Super Delegates

Published by at 11:39 am under 2008 Elections,All General Discussions

Nancy Pelosi has decided that the Democrat race will go on and super delegates are free to vote however they wish:

WASHINGTON – House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said the superdelegates who may ultimately decide the Democratic party’s presidential nominee have a right to vote as they wish, and that the drawn-out contest between candidates Hillary Rodham Clinton and Barack Obama should be allowed to reach its conclusion.

“These superdelegates have the right to vote their conscience and who they think would be the better president, or who can win, but they also then should get involved in the campaigns and make their power known there,” Pelosi said in an interview aired Tuesday on ABC’s “Good Morning America.”

Must be in response to democrat top donors threatening the purse strings if she did not stay out of the fight. Seems the power is still in the purse – all those hidden purses who yank the chains of the “public servant”. Now it is clear who runs Washington, as if there ever was any doubt.

    Was listening to Rush today and noted that all but 100 thousand of Obama’s popular vote lead comes from Cook County Illinois (Chicago). I think they should call it “Cooked” county considering the process of election counts there.

    Can we quit now.

    This election has run too long. There have been people in the street. The now bankrupt Carlyle Group is secretly funding and promoting ‘Operation Chaos’ and ‘Rush the Vote’. Hillary scares me. She is soooooo militaristic. Obama frightens me. He is soooooo underhanded.

    I want to quit.

    I can’t see the light at the end of the tunnel.

    This election just goes on and on and on and on.

    It is not worth another viewing of another ad.

    Let us bail on it.

    Run away!

    Sounds good, don’t worry, I’ll take care of voting for you so you don’t have to worry about it. Deal?

    I must quit!

    heh- I agree that you do have a serious point that the political class has been deliberately ignoring. Over the last 2 decades,we have moved ever and ever closer to the true Permanent Campaign, a time when the political maneuvering never stops and each election serves only as the opening bell for he next stage in the neverending and very tediuous story.

    But in all the maneuvering for advantage no one has stopped to consider just how sick to death everyone normal is going to get of this nonsense.
