Response to dogman (Reply #98)

124. However you want to add up the numbers, Hillary won the primary by a landslide.

Popular vote, delegates, whatever. True, superdelegates are undemocratic, but they didn't decide the primary, because Hillary won the majority of pledged delegates. In fact, the irony is that at the end, rather than concede, Bernie tried to persuade the superdelegates to overturn the will of the voters.

Caucuses are undemocratic because they make it very difficult for people to participate. Another irony is that progressives generally try to make it easier for people to vote, and yet because of the fact that Bernie did better in caucuses than primaries, you suddenly had people trying to defend the caucus system.

And, no, party leaders didn't "subvert the will of attendees through lies and deception". That's way out in conspiracy theory land.
