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).

I'm new to political blogging but have been writing most of my life about different things. I campaigned for President Clinton when he was just Governor Clinton in Orange County. I graduated from Smith College with a BA in English and a minor in Film. I work full time, have a lovely four year old daughter named Charlotte, my husband teaches full time at Cerritos College in Norwalk in the Music Department. Gary has a Ph.D in Ethnomusicology from UCI. I hope to go back to school in some form or another, maybe sociology or economics. I've even thought of Law school.

    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.
