The “Selectee”

Clearly the media, the DNC and the Obama campaign haven’t read, don’t understand, or just don’t care about “teh roolz.” My guess is the latter. 

In order to be the “presumptive nominee” a candidate must have the “magic number” in PLEDGED DELEGATES. As it stands now, Senator Obama has 1766.5 pledged delegates (55 of them arbitrarily given to him by the RBC and 4 stolen from Senator Clinton and handed to our new “selectee”) to Senator Clinton’s 1639.5.  Superdelegates do not vote until the first ballot at the Convention in August and may change their minds as many times as they would like until they cast their secret ballot at the Convention. 

So why the “victory speech?” Why all the claims by the media, the DNC and Senator Obama that he has “clinched” the nomination?

Simple…the fix is in!

How long this “nomination process” has been decided by the “party leaders” (i.e. Howard Dean) is not yet known. 

Usually, political fixing is done behind closed doors, in those “smokey back rooms” the punditocracy were warning us about back when they thought the Superdelegates would go for Hilalry. But this time, on March 31st (the Day Democracy Died) we got a front row seat. 

Riverdaughter over at The Confluence gives us the numbers:

Hmmm, now we know why the RBC did what the did. She had over 100 delegates from Florida and 73 from Michigan. If he got zero from Michigan and both states had been able to seat with full strength, she could have added over 86 delegates and he would have lost 59. Hmm, that brings her total to 1725 and Obama’s to 1707. Day-um! I wouldn’t concede either. [emphasis mine]

Riverdaughter has hit the  nail on the head. Had the RBC followed their coveted “roolz” Senator Clinton would have been the pledged delegate leader and the popular vote leader…making her the even clearer choice of the people and endowing her with the undeniable, rightful claim to the nomination.

First and foremost, there is no “presumptive  nominee” at this time unless it is the media, the DNC and the Obama campaign who are doing the “presuming.” If we listen to the voices of nearly 18 million Americans, and abide by the rules, Senator Hillary Rodham Clinton would be, should be and is the presumptive nominee.

I’m positive that Howard Dean and his cronies know this is the case, which is why he is reportedly trying to strip Hillary of her delegates, and attempting to avoid a roll call vote at the Convention. Ahhh, Dean, circumventing Democracy on behalf of the Chosen One…AGAIN.
