Dean wants Superdelegates to decide…NOW!

An increasingly firm Howard Dean told CNN again Thursday that he needs superdelegates to say who they’re for – and “I need them to say who they’re for starting now.”“We cannot give up two or three months of active campaigning and healing time,” the Democratic National Committee Chairman told CNN’s Wolf Blitzer. “We’ve got to know who our nominee is.”


Many Democrats are still waiting to vote but superdelegates don’t have the same restraints and considering we’ve had more than a year to study the two candidates closely, it seems like a pretty easy decision to make. As DNC Chairman Dean should be pushing for the supers to endorse, especially in those States where the primaries have already occurred. Although you have to admit, he does sound like your Dad did in the car when he would shout “Don’t make me stop this primary and come back there!”. Okay, well maybe your Dad didn’t say that.

John Edwards has yet to endorse but his state of North Carolina hasn’t had it’s primary yet. Edwards appeared on the Colbert Report last night to let Clinton and Obama know exactly what they need to do to get his vote as a white southern male. Edwards proves again that he has a great sense of humor and that he doesn’t take himself too seriously (Some of your Orange County Political Bloggers should consider trying this).

Clinton and Obama also appeared on the Colbert Report, below are their segments.

My blogging here is not an endorsement of any other opinion but my own. I'm no longer new to blogging, I've been writing locally and nationally since 2007 starting here at the Liberal OC. I was born in New York and grew up in Huntington Beach, CA and currently live in Aliso Viejo. I graduated from Smith College with a B.A. in English and Film and eventually may go back to school, but I'm still figuring out what I want to be when I grow up. Until then, I work and write and try to do something useful here in the OC by using the word to point out the things that make me frustrated. It's a daily struggle. Issues that peak my interest the most are environmental (yes, I don't just 'believe" in climate change, I listen to all those whacky scientists), gender and body issues (women deserve equal pay, I'm a feminist too, crazy) to the continuing widening economic gap we are not enjoying here in the US (which ties to education, stagnant wages and debt). So many issues, but those are the top three right now. I am an unabashed corgi lover, nerd and all around strange girl. I am lucky enough to be raising a wonderful daughter as well and enjoying being unmarried.

    Once again, Howard Dean doesn’t get it right. It’s not real his job to tell any delegate what to do. But even if it was, the time for superdelegates to “have to ” decide would be after all the primaries are concluded.

    Dean has already dissed the voters of Florida and Michigan, possibly putting into jeopardy those states in November. Now, he wants to throw Pennsylvania, Indiana, Florida, Oregon, Kentucky, Montana, North Carolina and Puerto Rico under the bus. And I’m sure I missed some other state Dean wants to ignore.

    Howard, you mangled your own presidential race. Don’t screw up Obama’s or Clinton’s.
