The Working Class Are Hurt By Special Interests And Lobbyists' Money
I think it is bizarre that the media is portraying Obama as elitist and Clinton as the candidate for the working class. I do not see the logic.
|Personal Wealth||Made $4 Million From Books||Made $100 Million From Husband's Speeches To Big, Fat Companies|
|Definition Of Middle Class||Middle Class||People Who Make $250,000 A Year|
|Where Power Rests||With The People Who Donate $25, $50, $100 A Pluck, Does Not Take Money From Lobbyists||Number One Recipient Of Money From Lobbyists In Either Party|
|Political Style||New, Positive, Uplifting, Uniting||Slash And Burn, 1990s Style|
Obama is more likely to deliver on education and health care. He is more likely to bring the gas price down by ending the gouging going on by the oil companies. He is the one who will tame the mortgage industry now known for predatory lending. Why? Because he will answer to the people and the people alone.
The Responsibility Of The Superdelegates
Not all remaining superdelegates have to fall for my guy, but all must cast their preference one way or the other by the time the final primary/caucus is held. The party must have its nominee by then. Otherwise it will be like gifting all of summer to McCain. Summer is when the flesh pressing happens. Don't deprive the nominee of that.
We give Barack all summer and he will give us a 60 strong majority in the Senate. I think that is a bargain. What do you think?
The superdelegates are political professionals. They don't need more time. They know the candidates better than most of the rest of us. They don't get to have more time. They don't get to wait until the convention.
