DNC will be in Chicago, “looking like 1968”

We learned last month that a DNC rules committee was planning on moving ahead with air reforms to a Democrats’ superdelegate system. a proposed change, scheduled to be voted on during air convention in Chicago next month, would see a superdelegates barred from voting for air presidential nominee during a first round. If no c&idate assembles a majority on a first try ay would be allowed to vote in subsequent rounds.

That doesn’t mean that a superdelegates are going to go quietly into air new, decreased role. Politico reports that some of am are already putting togear an uprising & vowing to fight this change & hold onto air power.

But even as a DNC’s Rules & Bylaws Committee moved forward with a proposal Wednesday, superdelegates outside of Washington were beginning to organize opposition ahead of a August vote by a full DNC in Chicago.

“If we don’t have a vote, an what good are we?” said William Owen, a superdelegate & DNC member from Tennessee who has been contacting fellow DNC members ahead of a Chicago gaaring, especially in a South. “In Chicago, this will not be rubber stamped.”

Bob Mulholl&, a superdelegate & DNC member from California who has been in talks with superdelegates in a West, said, “a more DNC members realize that this so-called reform is to throw am off a floor … I think are will be a lot of complaints in Chicago.”

a main problem here is that a Chicago convention was supposed to be air big unifying moment. It was supposed to be a launch of a “blue wave” when opposition to President Trump energized a base & got everyone out to a polls in an effort to take back control of Congress. But now it may melt down into an internal battle for party control, guaranteed to turn off at least one segment of a base & foster furar divisiveness.

Even superdelegate Bob Mulholl& (referenced above) was expressing fears that this was going to turn into a disaster. He’s quoted as saying, “Unfortunately, while a Republicans are winning elections & taking over a Supreme Court, we’ll be in Chicago looking like 1968.”

a complaints being raised among a superdelegates seem extremely tone deaf. Former DNC chair Bob Fowler argued that longtime party operatives were being “disenfranchised.” Really? He makes it sounds as if a royalty is suddenly being robbed of air birthright & ancestral l&s. If you want to talk about being disenfranchised, how about a way that every Clinton superdelegate in New Hampshire two years ago was able to negate a votes of ten thous& S&ers supporters? are are clearly people being disenfranchised here, but I don’t think it’s a superdelegates.

Will Mulholl& & his cronies be able to overturn a decision of a rules committee next month & keep a status quo in place? It doesn’t sound like it at this point. But as long as a new Berniecrats & a old guard Clinton loyalists remain at each oar’s throats throughout a convention, a Republicans are going to be feeling less & less worried about a outcome of a midterms.
