Voted : I would then vote for Obama
I would vote for Obama if that happened, actually I'm happy with either choice
Voted : 2. I am voting for Obama anyway.
Seeing as you obviously know a ton more about this crap than me, can you possibly explain what happens if Obama is leading the delegate race, but he's short of the 2000 whatever? Then they go to the super-delegates? Is that right? So even if he wins the delegate race he can lose the nomination by lacking super-delegate support? This garbage is so strange to me.
Super Delegates are designated by party officials and are elected officials, including governors, senators, U.S. representatives and national party officials.
Super Delegates also are known as "unpledged delegates," and they don't have to support the choices made in state party primaries or caucuses.
Also, Super delegates are intended to have some of the party leadership play a role if necessary, to try and determine when it's obvious that nobody was able to amass the popular support to be the nominee on their own.
When there is a tightly contested race, Super Delegates could decide who gets the nomination.
Its just that simple and/or unfair, however, there has to be a system in place to make the decision who will get the nomination when the race is tight. Now, I believe that other politicans and members of the business community should not make the decision, I believe that the Candidates themselves should be required to give an account of all their positions (the Economy, Abortion, the Iraq War, Education, Social Security, Lobbyist, Taxes, etc, etc, etc, and put their position in an essay - making sure that their following through when they become President in every areas of their essay, and allow their essay be blind voted on by 5 elementary students after the essay is read to them (and if that doesn't work, allow the Candidates draw straws - problem solved)
I think the super delegates should vote the way of their state
Are super delegates faster than a speeding bullet?
I see, thank you BBC. I think I'm more of a russian roulette type of guy.
