Super Delegates Will Write History by Nominating Sanders in Philadelphia 

Edited by Samantha Best

The brainchild of the 1968 Democratic Convention may finally show its brilliance in 2016, when the unbound Democratic superdelegates upend pledged delegates and popular vote and choose their party’s nominee, thus holding the final firewall they were originated for.

Superdelegates were never intended to have a majority status. In reality, they only make up about 15% of the delegates available. And more often than not, their opinion isn’t relevant to the nomination. However, the purpose of the minority power is not to elect a candidate. Rather, they were designed to prevent a loss in a general election, a proverbial safety valve to circumvent an obviously weak candidate.

This is the superdelegate’s role in the Democratic nomination process: they are independent judges that only emerge in marginal contests. Their function is to secure a nomination based upon available data and a completed primary map. Their sole task is to identify and eliminate the candidate that controls a frenzied base, yet fails to connect outside of their stronghold. They’re designed to stop a candidate like Hillary Clinton.

The control Clinton has over the Democratic base is frightening. Obvious vulnerabilities that would end any other candidate’s presidential bid are overlooked and dismissed by her loyalist support. Face it. Whenever drastic unfavorability, distrust, and a possible FBI indictment fail to internally dismiss a party’s candidate, you’re not dealing with a potential nominee. You’re describing the leader of a cult, the very thing superdelegates were designed to prevent.

Still, it will take more than just the identification of a faction candidate for this unprecedented political coup to occur. The decision to overrule pledged delegates and popular vote also requires a general election map that is more favorable to the faction’s opposition. Fortunately for Democrats, the electoral map is indeed stronger for Hillary Clinton’s opponent Bernie Sanders.

Just by glancing at the 2008 and 2012 presidential election maps, the general election frailties of Clinton are clear. In order for a Democrat to claim victory in November, the candidate must be able to win in 3 geographical areas. They need to control the Northeast, the upper Midwest, and the entire west coast.

Both Sanders and Clinton would be able to maintain the Northeast; it is an undeniable fact. The further west that Sanders goes, the stronger he becomes and the weaker Clinton gets. The last time the campaigns were on the west coast, Clinton lost the state of Washington by almost 50 points. Combine that with the possibility of losses in Ohio and Florida this November, and an objective evaluation of the general election map becomes crucial to the Democrats success.

However, even with most available data in favor of Sanders, in order for superdelegates to change ship at the convention, he must finish the primary race strong. The need for a convincing victory in California is paramount to this historical political coup. This is why the support of Sanders cannot fade into the night. It must remain steadfast and burn it’s very hottest, on the doorsteps of Philadelphia, to have superdelegates write history.

The 2016 Democratic presidential primary is what superdelegates were created for. If they were designed to vote along with their states or the popular vote, it would defeat their purpose and the visionary work of the McGovern-Frasier and later Hunt commissions. The commissions knew someday a minority power would be needed to block a faction candidate and prevent a general election loss.

    1. Why would you want to lock Warren into a position that has no relevance unless the President dies? I would suggest that Martin O’Malley might be the better choice. He and Bernie have very similar politics. Warren needs to keep doing what she is doing right now. That is where she is needed.

He doesn’t have the street cred that Bernie has, and he’s awash with his own tawdriness. Bernie needs someone that isn’t Obama or Clinton. Two very polarizing figures, love them or not.

My daughter is going to vote for Hillary for that reason. But if Bernie does not finish 4 years, people will be happy to have Warren as “insurance.” Just saying’.

  1. Lol you’re saying the Superdelegates will back someone who has done nothing but bash our party and our process for over 3 decades. After raising hundreds of millions for himself and virtually nothing for Democrats, Superdelegates will just abandon Hillary, who has stood by Dems her entire adult life and has raised nearly $40 million in 2015 and 2016 for down-ballot Democrats. If you truly believe what you wrote in this article, you’re clearly delusional.

    6. It pays to do your research:

      Throughout his career he has focused on the shrinking American middle class and the growing income and wealth gaps in the United States.

      As chairman of the Senate Committee on Veterans’ Affairs, Sanders in 2014 passed legislation reforming the VA health care system. Congressional Quarterly said he was able “to bridge Washington’s toxic partisan divide and cut one of the most significant deals in years.”

      Today, Sanders remains on the veterans committee and was tapped by Senate leadership to be the ranking member of the Senate Budget Committee.

      He also serves on the Environment and Public Works Committee, where he has focused on global warming and rebuilding our nation’s crumbling infrastructure.

      He is a member of the Energy and Natural Resources Committee, where he has championed efforts to transform our energy system from fossil fuels to renewable power sources like solar and wind.

      He also sits on the Health, Education, Labor and Pensions Committee, where he has fought for greater access to affordable health care and improved education programs from pre-K to college.

      Hmm, it amazes me when the MSM as well as the DNC dismiss Bernie’s record in the Senate. He has been touted by Congress in the Congressional Quarterly in addition to being a “Ranking Member” of the Senate Budget Committee.

      Now tell me again, who will be able to get things done as POTUS?

    7. You say that she has raised all this money for down ballot dems, but that’s partly a lie and also part of the very problem. I’ll start with the problem and then adress the lie. The problem is that all that money is from the donor class, which is the very problem with our government and why all the other things we need to get done will never get done until we get money out of politics. Now for the lie; she actually hasn’t raised that much money for down ballot dems. Most of the money she’s raising is getting funneled straight into her SuperPAC priorities USA and isn’t going towards other dems. In fact, only about 1% of the money she’s raised in that way has actually made it to state democratic parties. Politico just released a piece on it about 2 days ago; Google it. It’s the very definition of bending rules to the point of breaking. In that way she has been able to gain more money than the law allows from donors like Alice Walton.

Hillary does not appeal to these people whatsoever. And in order to win an election you have to appeal to the majority of Americans not just the majority of the Democratic Party. This is bigger than Hilary, this is bigger than the DNC. This is the future of our country and all of its people. And the future of this country and overwhelmingly large numbers all want Bernie.

    14. If only your comment were true. I guess you have neglected to read all the various articles out there that expressly show that only 1% of money raised by State Dem parties remained in the state while the Hillary Victory Fund funneled off 99% of the money for her campaign. THERE is no money for down ticket candidates. There has been no money since the state parties were manipulated into believing she would backwash the money and she didn’t. Google it. Just as in every other instance, the promise of support and cooperation has turned out to be a lie. Let’s not even open that can of worms because we would be discussing all the other lies for the next 24 hours at least, or would you simply say that they were all republican attacks or simply sexist? Enjoy the candidate of your personal choice, I am sure you have plenty of policy and platform reasons why you would choose your candidate. I am sure you have plenty of factual instances where she has passed legislation or voted in ways that supported your particular interests and the interests of your family and your future children. I certainly have those facts for my candidate.

      As for this article, I completely agree with the thinking. We all know that the primary calendar was front loaded with states that would support Clinton before anyone even knew who Bernie Sanders was. This does not make a front runner at all, and Sanders will not be coerced into stepping out of the race until every last Citizen has their right to cast their vote. Oh wait, let’s not forget that most Independents were disenfranchised and couldn’t vote but will certainly vote in the General. If the party is so important, why does the nominee need ANY support from Independents to get elected? Something to think about.

    15. Are you referring to the 1% she left to down ballot candidates from the total she raised from large donors? Her Victory Fund raised $61million in conjuction with 32 state parties. That money was supposed to go to those 32 state parties. However, Shillary had ALL the donations go through her Victory Fund, which kept 99% and gave 32 states a total of $610,000. Worse, some of those state parties were left with a greater funding problem than before Shillary’s “help” because their donors’ limits have been maxed out or are near their limits.

      At the same time, Bernie’s request to his supporters to fund down ballot progressives has generated hundreds of thousands of dollars that ALL went directly to the candidates.

      Do you see the difference here? One candidate used the donors for down ballot candidates to fund her own campaign leaving the down ballot candidates handicapped, while the other candidate actually sent all the donations directly to the down ballot candidates.

      One candidate wants to win at any cost and has consistently demonstrated a complete lack of ethics and integrity. The other candidate genuinely wants to help the 99% and has consistently demonstrated ethics and integrity in alignment with that desire.

My concern is that she & the heads of the DNC bought those delegates.

And I say this even though I support him! No, I’m sorry, the cult-like following is entirely Sanders’, Sanders lacks Clinton’s diverse and centrist appeal (and no I am not someone that “centrist appeal” appeals to) and so it’s a Sanders nomination that the superdelegate system exists to prevent. The fact that most of the superdelegates attached themselves to Clinton long ago should have been more than sufficient to tell you that.

    1. And, the state parties returned it to HER. Her supporters are on the committee saying where it goes and it went back to HER. Several different entities traced it. The states have gotten a pittance of the money and she has received the vast remainder. Check out The Young Turks. They are one tracing where it ended up.

  11. While there are plenty of reasonable considerations for choosing a candidate who (among other things) rocks the vote in Open Primaries (such as the presidential elections will be), I do not share this writer’s faith that the super delegates will go with Bernie. Why not? Because many of them benefit greatly, if not from Clinton directly, from the horrific plague of lobbyists and their bribes that have infiltrated politics. Bernie would put an end to that, while Clinton is the Queen of Graft. As they say…”Follow the money.” The super delegates on the whole will do just that.

    1. If I truly believed Clinton could I would but she has been safeguarded by the Democratic Party and frankly it just too darn risky to run a candidate with her unfavorability in an election this important.

  12. Because, facts. She still wins, even if going by popular vote. More people want Clinto than Sanders, and for good reason. His policy has no substance, he can’t answer basic questions about his platform. He is an egomaniac that thinks the rules don’t apply to him (Hello Vatican vacation). He has no super delegates because NO ONE WANTS TO WORK WITH HIM. Know that PITA at work no one likes? That’s him in Congress. You are dreaming if you think he will accomplish anything in office.

    1. More staunch democrats want Hillary for sure. As far as not wanting to work with him. Almost all the republican candidates cited a time when they did and claimed it as a personal success. But go on keep telling yourself that the same political party that has tried to put her in jail for 25 years is just going to roll over and play nice. Wake up

  13. Anon , no one likes him because they’re all crooks . She doesn’t win because most independents and some republicans are for Sanders . The Vatican trip didn’t break any rules . Not like Bill breaking the rules over and over .he can answer every single question asked . One instance in an interview and that’s all that Killary has against him . He has no supers because they are all bought by the crooked Queen . Your teeth must be rotted from all the kool aid you’ve drunk .

  14. Sanders, Clinton, and Trump are ALL faction candidates. Sanders is better LIKED by the American people, but as an earnest oddball, not as a realistic president.

    Gary Johnson is the only candidate in this race who has executive experience in both business and government and broad appeal across ethnic and political lines. If the public ever discovers this, the choice will be clear.

    1. Isn’t he the libertarian candidate? I listen to conservative radio because that’s all we get in Mid Missouri and his name gets brought up occasionally.

  16. Tulsi Gabbard as VP,
    Elizabeth needs to stay where she is (for now)
    Tulsi give a massive number of the female Hilliary supportes and nearly as good mile stone. The first female VP.
    Bernie serves one term and then after brandnewcongress dot org does its job in 2018 we run Warren to the first female President, Tulsi servers her second term as VP (she is kinda young right now, right?)
    Warren then serves a second term and Tulsi a third as VP (another milestone).
    Then we run Tulsi are Predident…

    Easy peasy

    Hilliary is the WRONG woman
