For all the accusations that the Republicans steal elections…

April 24th, 2008

…the only person I see trying to steal an election is Mrs. Clinton.

(I’m referring, sildenafil ambulance of course, help to the fact that the only likely way Mrs. Clinton can win is if she convinces the super delegates to overturn the popular vote.)

    Um, the superdelegates may vote as they wish, without “overturning” anything. Those are the rules of he contest, rules both Clinton and Obama knew going in. What you call stealing is nothing at all of the sort.

    I respect you too much to call you a liar, Jay, but I suspect that if a Republican was trying to use similar tactics to overturn both the popular vote and the electoral college in the national election you would consider it an attempt to steal the election.

    Also, how do you justify Hillary’s maneuvering to seat the Florida and Michigan delegates despite “knowing the rules of the contest” and having agreed to them?

    I don’t support “Hillary’s maneuvering” to break the agreed-upon rules anymore than I support the anti-Hillary people whining that she’s using the superdelegate rules to her advantage. As long as the rules are followed, I don’t care that much.

    Your electoral college example doesn’t track because that’s not the same thing. Electors are chosen differenly than how (super)delegates to a party’s convention are, and are bound by law to cast their vote in a particular way.
