CDC Endorsement Vote Shows Surprising Contest

Despite the short notice and heavy workload during this election cycle, over 150 delegates from across California participated in CDC’s first ever online endorsement vote.

Although no candidate received the official 60% needed for an endorsement, the mix of grassroots participants shows a different story than most polls have typically indicated.

With 59 votes, Hillary Clinton barely squeaked past John Edwards’ 55 votes. Surprisingly, Barack Obama came in at a distant third with only 26 votes followed by Dennis Kucinich with 13.

While we obviously cannot draw any definite conclusions from this small sample of voters, it does seem to indicate that among California party regulars, there is a different type of battle going on when independents and not so ‘active’ voters aren’t added to the mix.

    All the “debates” continue to demonstrate that Obummer is a junior senator. His third place rating is where he belongs. A good guy needing some aging and additional experience. He’ll be ready in 8 years. Not now.

    John Edwards is the best for all. Above the fray. Not encumbered by the elites and their money of influence.

    Edwards NOW & for the next 8 years!!

    I was so hoping that the members of the California Democratic Council would endorse, I am a lifelong Democrat, a female, but I cannot vote for Hillary Clinton. There is no way she will win in 2008, and our country desperately needs a real Democrat in the White House. Edwards has the potential to plant the seeds of transformation we so desperately need. Be smart!
