    Hillary already has over half the superdelegates and is expected to gain more

    It doesn’t matter what the Bernie Sanders campaign does because Hillary Clinton is practically already the presidential nominee, a Democratic superdelegate admitted to Infowars reporter Richard Reeves.

    Yeah, it does look like Hillary is tweaking the system with all those superdelegates but Bernie peaked in NH and she's far ahead in SC:

    Florida, too, but you can get there from the above link.

    I've long found it strange that the Democratic Party has all these superdelegates yet they are the "democratic" party but who cares? The real thing here is that all those blacks in Super Tuesday state would never vote for Sanders in a million years.

    Tell me again about how the Democrats are all about democracy and letting the little guy have a voice.

    We covered this already in the other thread. This has been going on for decades. It's not new. She's not doing anything that previous candidates haven't done.

    The little guy still has a voice. Superdelegates can always change their "committed" votes.

    I hope they do. Not that I love Bernie, but having Hillary as President will stink.

    The GOP essentially has superdelegates too. But they are, by the rules, REQUIRED to pledge their vote for whomever wins the primary.

    Some might say that requiring folks to vote a certain way just because a majority of other folks voted that way isn't democracy either.;)
