    Seems kinda strange to me

    Again this year at the democrat convention there will be "super delegates". Yet they claim it is the democratic party. Having super delegates dont seem to be very democratic to me.

    Anyone want explain how this is, and why they still have super delegates?????

    Here's Sander's explanation, albeit, a bit of a convoluted, self-serving explanation for the use of super delegates.

    Asked if the candidate with the most pledged delegates should be the Democratic nominee — even if that candidate did not have a majority of pledged delegates — Sanders said, “the will of the people should prevail, yes. The person who has the most votes should become the nominee.”

    It is the opposite of what Sanders and his campaign said in 2016, even after Hillary Clinton had secured the majority of pledged delegates.

    “The responsibility that superdelegates have is to decide what is best for this country and what is best for the Democratic Party,” Sanders said on May 1, 2016. “And if those superdelegates conclude that Bernie Sanders is the best candidate, the strongest candidate to defeat Trump and anybody else, yes, I would very much welcome their support.”

    I really enjoyed Bernie being asked a question the other day about if Bernie wins the nomination, will he accept the millions or billions of dollars that Bloomberg pledged to give the nominee of the party and Bernie went into a big dance and never said "no".

    WALSH: Bernie Sanders Stopped Ranting About Millionaires Because He Became One. He’s A Fraud And A Hypocrite. | The Daily Wire

    How Bernie Sanders, The Socialist Senator, Amassed A $2.5 Million Fortune

    The millionaire socialist has clearly changed his mind about other stances he held in the past (which benefitted him at that moment in time) like his previous stance concerning millionaires and billionaires.

    Now that Bernie is a millionaire he seems to have eliminated the millionaire from his original stance on millionaire and billionaires.

    It would seem that after he last convention, and all the hate and discontent super delegates caused, they would give up on that nonsense.

    It's scary to think what a Sander's presidency would be like.

    He kind of shot himself in his left foot with that super delegate flip-flop.

    Yes, he did. He may be left foot limping by the time he enters that super delegate process due to that flip-flop.
