Clinton Will Appeal to Superdelegates

by Jay Allbritton
Can you imagine how volcanic the reaction from the Clinton camp would be if Barack Obama were behind and let loose a belligerent, anti-democratic salvo like this?

From The Boston Globe:
Hillary Clinton will take the Democratic nomination even if she does not win the popular vote, but persuades enough superdelegates to vote for her at the convention, her campaign advisers say.

The New York senator, who lost three primaries Tuesday night, now lags slightly behind her rival, Illinois Senator Barack Obama, in the delegate count. She is even further behind in "pledged'' delegates, those assigned by virtue of primaries and caucuses.

But Clinton will not concede the race to Obama if he wins a greater number of pledged delegates by the end of the primary season, and will count on the 796 elected officials and party bigwigs to put her over the top, if necessary, said Clinton's communications director, Howard Wolfson.

"We are interested in acquiring delegates, period,'' a Clinton spokesperson said.

As if there's no difference between directly elected representatives and bought and paid for rank and file members of a political party. The coercion going on behind the scenes in intense. Bill Clinton reportedly lost it on Bill Richardson when Richardson didn't endorse Hillary Clinton. "What, isn't two Cabinet posts enough?"

Uh huh. And what do you think they told John Edwards, who is supposedly close to endorsing Clinton?

I'm sure Obama cuts deals and twists arms too, but there's no need for these people to choose our candidate.
