13. If we don't have super delegates,

we end up with candidates like McGovern, who get beaten in a landslide. We need our party leaders to be involved. We need closed primaries, and an end to caucuses. Anything else is an invitation to weaken our party from within.

The repiggies wish they had super delegates. They would not have been stuck with 45 as their nominee if they had had them. And don't kid yourself: he will destroy their party.

I find it naive in the extreme to think that we should do away with super delegates. These are people who have earned their leadership roles. And, as I have stated in another post, I find the source of this story extremely dubious.
