Thoroughly Modern Superdelegates

Peter Hauck

Lauren Wolfe and Awais Khaleel are not only the President and Vice President of the College Democrats of America but they're also superdelegates. And today they effusively endorsed Barack Obama. On YouTube. Of course.

It is *so* good to see so much enthusiasm. It is also good to see young people who seem to really care about something outside of themselves. This is great for our country!

Are you sure these "college students" are getting an education? Do they UNDERSTAND Political Science? Do they understand alliegence to this NATION? Have they READ Obama's books? And if so, HOW could they endorse him?

See that...

Anyone with half a brain and some
common sense knows what Hillary
might do to this ailing country.


Obama is the way forward. '08

No they didn't read his books, but he is cool and they think it is enough. Remember in 2000 it was enough to elect the guy who you wanted to have a beer with. Gore wasn't cool enough.

Edwards should be ashamed endorsing Obama when Obama's health care is not what Edwards or his wife believe in. Obama didn't campaign in WV where the common folks are either but knew that Edwards was going to rain on Hillary's big blow out. Shame on Edwards

In a recent college survey, more than 7 in 10 respondents said "a lot" of their information about politics comes from either newspapers or television news:
15% said they get most of their information about politics from blogs...
12% said they get "a lot" of political information from "Late Night Talk and Comedy Shows.........
Well, gee, I'm just SO relieved that our new young voters are so well-informed...... I can rest easy at night, knowing that 7 out of 10 didn't bother to read any primary sources, like the Congressional Record-the actual speeches of senators from the floor....paltry things like that....No wonder Obama maintains his lead..... with supporters like that, who needs educated enemies?

"Obama didn't campaign in WV where the common folks are .."

Perhaps Sen Obama knew and understood that these 'common folks' were solidly behind Hillary and no amount of campaigning there would change things.

Clinton has taken Kentucky and Obama is right there in Oregon.
The Democratic race for nomination is still very much alive - and most likely to be decided by superdelegates - as CNN points out clearly

If you're tired of waiting around for those super delegates to make a decision already, go to LobbyDelegates.com and push them to support Clinton or Obama

If you haven't done so yet, please write a message to each of your state's superdelegates at http://www.lobbydelegates.com

Obama Supporters:

Sending a note to current Obama supporters lets them know it's appreciated, sending a note to current Clinton supporters can hopefully sway them to change their vote to Obama, and sending a note to the uncommitted folks will hopefully sway them to vote for Obama. It's that easy...

Clinton Supporters too .... !

It takes a moment, but what's a few minutes now worth to get Clinton in office?! Those are really worth !

Sending a note to current Clinton supporters lets them know it's appreciated, sending a note to current Obama supporters can hopefully sway them to change their vote to Clinton, and sending a note to the uncommitted folks will hopefully sway them to vote for Clinton. It's that easy...
