Where I'm Clicking Now: The Delegate Hub

Where I'm Clicking Now: The Delegate Hub believes that Hillary Clinton has a path to the nomination, so long as the superdelegates exercise their independent judgment.

In order to makes its point, the Clinton-sponsored site has outlined five facts about superdelegates (or automatic delegates).

Here are the "five facts":

  1. Pledged delegates and superdelegates are the same — they each count for one vote.
  2. Neither candidate can secure the nomination without superdelegates.
  3. Superdelegates are expected to exercise their best judgment in the interests of the nation and the Democratic Party.
  4. Florida and Michigan should count, both in the interest of fundamental fairness and honoring the spirit of the Democrats' 50-state strategy.
  5. There is a clear path to an overall delegate majority (pledged + super) for Hillary Clinton after all states have voted — with or without Florida and Michigan.

I don't know about you, but fact #4 sounds more like an opinion to me. The site goes into more detail, and also keeps track of current press articles regarding superdelegates. Check it out, and then tell me how you feel about the site? Should Florida and Michigan be seated? Are superdelegates unfair politics?
