DNC chair Debbie Wasserman: We use super delegates to protect our leadership from grassroots competition

Black Women

Oh you can vote, honey, it just won’t mean a thing

Refreshingly honest, perhaps, but also typically liberal: we know what’s best for the little people, and we’ll do it.

CNN’s Jake Tapper asked Wasserman Schultz on Thursday, “Hillary Clinton lost to Bernie Sanders in New Hampshire by 22 percentage points, the biggest victory in a contested Democratic primary there since John F. Kennedy, but it looks as though Clinton and Sanders are leaving the Granite State with the same number of delegates in their pockets because Clinton has the support of New Hampshire’s superdelegates, these party insiders. What do you tell voters who are new to the process who says[sic] this makes them feel like it’s all rigged?

Wasserman Schultz replied, “Well, let me just make sure that I can clarify exactly what was available during the primaries in Iowa and in New Hampshire. The unpledged delegates [superdelegates] are a separate category. The only thing available on the ballot in a primary and a caucus is the pledged delegates— those that are tied to the candidate that they are pledged to support, and they receive a proportional number of delegates going into our convention.

She added, Unpledged delegates exist really to make sure that party leaders and elected officials don’t have to be in a position where they are running against grassroots activists. We are as a Democratic Party really highlight and emphasize inclusiveness and diversity at our convention, and so we want to give every opportunity to grassroots activists and diverse, committed Democrats to be able to participate, attend, and be a delegate at the convention. And so we separate out those unpledged delegates to make sure that there isn’t competition between them.

Which is why Hillary Clinton will be the party’s nominee, unless she appears destined to lose, in which case the party organization will choose another insider to run. Whatever happens, don’t look for the VT communist to be on the Democrat line come November.

(And no, the Republicans don’t operate this way – so which is the party of special interests?)
