The brainchild of the 1968 Democratic Convention may finally show its brilliance in 2016, when the unbound Democratic superdelegates upend pledged delegates and popular vote and choose their party’s nominee, thus holding the final firewall they were originated for.

And more often than not, their opinion isn’t relevant to the nomination. However, the purpose of the minority power is not to elect a candidate. Rather, they were designed to prevent a loss in a general election, a proverbial safety valve to circumvent an obviously weak candidate.
This is the superdelegate’s role in the Democratic nomination process: they are independent judges that only emerge in marginal contests. Their function is to secure a nomination based upon available data and a completed primary map. Their sole task…

By way of acknowledging some hard work, and as a way of giving a heads up to a local, Colorado Springs-based business, and even to get a sense of what a blog for a small, locally-based company looks like, check out their most recent blog. I really appreciate Heritage Painting, and it is a pleasure working with them. Their testimonials speak volumes!
More to come.
