This Would be Me Saying I Told You So

From MSN:

WASHINGTON - Couldn’t the Democratic superdelegates just put an end to the prolonged Democratic presidential nominating struggle?

How about today?

In theory, the superdelegates — elected officials such as senators and governors and elected members of the Democratic National Committee — have the power to end the contest now.

They could rally en masse to Sen. Barack Obama, who crushed Sen. Hillary Clinton in the North Carolina primary Tuesday and nearly beat her in Indiana. (There are about 265 remaining uncommitted superdelegates.)

But interviews at the Capitol Wednesday with several Democratic senators and House members — some committed and some not — supply answers to the superdelegate riddle.

Some of the uncommitted are holding out to wait and see what voters in the remaining primaries decide, while others are wary of alienating Democrats in their home states or congressional districts by publicly declaring support for one of the two rivals.

Friction back home
Rep. Steve Cohen, D-Tenn., an Obama supporter, gave his view that most of the remaining uncommitted House Democrats will back Obama. But the uncommitted “don’t want to upset anybody at all in their districts. Some have precarious districts and they don’t want to lose anybody at all” because Democratic disaffection could cost them support in their own re-election bids.

Perhaps fitting into this category is Sen. Mary Landrieu of Louisiana who faces a challenging re-election battle this November.

“I will be remaining neutral for the foreseeable future,” said Landrieu. “I’m going to be very carefully watching what happens in the next couple of days, but I have been neutral, and out of respect for my supporters, half of whom are for Sen. Clinton and half of whom are for Sen. Obama, I’m going to stay that way.”

Another neutral superdelegate, Montana Sen. Jon Tester, said he’d wait until after his state’s primary on June 3. “I’ll make my own decision based on what happens between now and then, and who I think can win in November.”

Oh it gets better.

A day is like a year'
Another Democrat keeping his cards close to his vest is Sen. Ben Cardin of Maryland. “My father told me that a day in politics is like a year. There’s a lot of things that could happen,” Cardin told a crowd of reporters as he tried to enter the Democrats’ weekly lunch meeting.

He’ll show his hand in late May or early June. The fact that Obama won Maryland’s primary with 60 percent of the vote “is a factor — but not a conclusive factor,” Cardin said.

Rep. Lincoln Davis, an uncommitted superdelegate from a Republican-leaning district in Tennessee, said he would wait until the convention in August to announce his choice.

“You never know where there might be a banana peel out there for someone to slip on,” he said.

He added, “I watched a football game called the Super Bowl and there was no doubt that Eli Manning’s team was going to lose and in the last few seconds the game changed.”

A mistake at the last second?
He said either Obama or Clinton “could make a mistake between now and August that could basically remove them from contention.”

He added, “I don’t know what’s going to happen between now and August, but I do know this much: Each of us was given the responsibility of being a delegate to the national convention” and those who wrote the party rules “meant for us to analyze who we thought could best win, not to put the stamp of approval on someone who may be the most popular or who may have the most votes.”

He said he would vote for “the best person to win the presidency in November” in order “to deny the Republicans the veto pen for the next four years.”

Translation: We don't want the Black guy at the top of the ticket. That's what all this talk of "electability" and "anything could happen" and "we don't want to upset our constituencies," is all about.

Mind you they could have ended this thing back in February before tensions got this high and they chose not to for the same reason they're choosing not to now: THEY DON'T WANT THE BLACK GUY. Which makes his pandering to white folk all the more disgusting.

If the Dems lose this fall it won't be because Obama is at the top of the ticket, it's because the Dems sabotaged their own candidate because of their own racist tendencies. The Democrats are so full of shit. SMH.

This is a pretty good post, and it will be all on them. Period. It's no longer Obama's fault. And when the Dems lose, fuck them.

My sentiments exactly.

I'll be riping up my Dem card and sending it to Dean and re-registering as an Independent.
