What He Said

Chris Bowers preemptive shot across the Democratic party bow.

Democratic super delegates may have the legal right to thwart the will of Democratic primary voters and caucus goers, but they do no not have the moral right to do so. Continuing to report their preference for the Democratic Presidential nomination in running delegate counts does little other than to ratify and provide consent to an eventuality when those super delegates summarily reject the will of Democratic primary voters and caucus goers. In other words, reporting super delegate totals in running delegate counts accepts that it is just fine for Democratic super delegates to thwart the will of Democratic primary voters and caucus goers. The moral truth of the matter is that such an eventuality is not acceptable. If Democratic super delegates reject intra-party democracy, then I reject their party altogether.

    On Saturday February 9 2008 at approximately 8:30pm CST on CNN Decision 2008. I heard Donna Brazil state she is an un-committed super delegate. This contrary to all her previous political pundent discussions where she was a self described Hillary Clinton supporter. If Ms. Brazil has potentially flip-flopped her political backing for self-serving interest, the thought of a democratic brokered convention with Ms. Brazil representing American voters it scary. I would like to hear Ms. Brazil clarify this ascertion in a public forum.
