The more that you examine something the uglier it can get. Like this election process. Democracy in action, right? Well, sort of. 80% of the delegates to the Democratic Convention are elected by the people. 20% are not. They are super delegates. With this race being so close the Super Delegates may matter.

Josh Marshall from TPM media has an excellent video on what is a super Delegate. I don’t know about you but I’m not sure that I’m liking the fact that someone who was elected to public office 10 or 15 years ago can be a Super Delegate. That doesn’t seem like democracy to me.
