balladeer BS: Superdelegates - What's the point? (90* d) RE: BS: Superdelegates - What's the point? 13 May 08


Whether you approve of the concept or not, one oft mentioned reason the super delegates exist is to save the party from shooting itself in the foot - sort of like an executive branch. In the present situation, many are afraid that some horrible secret from Barack's past will surface after the primaries are over and when he has all but sewed up the nomination, something so terrible it would render him a non-starter in the November election. That is when the super delegates would spring into action and throw their weight behind Senator Clinton. Hmm ... given everything we know so far about the candidates, who (I wonder) is more likely to have a nasty deal-breaking skeleton in the political closet?
