A Common Effort, or Super-Delegates Will Take It from HereThe Democratic Party should facilitate organizing on a community level—Milwaukee, Philadelphia, Cleveland and so forth—as state Republican governments around the country continue their goal of decimating local democracy.
Local democracy is not just a critical democratic value in itself, it's the key to the composition of the U.S. Senate. See Dreier at The American Prospect, rating Wisconsin number two as a likely party flip of a senate seat in what appears to be a likely Democratic Party retaking of the U.S. Senate.
Think fast, what is the DNC and the Democratic Party of Wisconsin doing right now to facilitate voting in Milwaukee and Racine?
About the only thing that can stop a progressive rout in November is a foolish DNC coronation of Hillary Clinton, telling voters their voices, local organizing efforts and work for their preferred candidates are not needed and super-delegates will take it from here.
This is precisely the message Hillary's lackeys delivered this weekend as Harry Reid engineered a narrow victory in Hillary's alleged impenetrable Nevada firewall.
The folks in Wisconsin (April 5 presidential primary), Ohio (March 15), Florida (March 15) and Pennsylvania (April 26) may not appreciate the communications from the DNC, Hillary Clinton and surrogates their states' presidential primary votes won't count.
If you think general election migrations from nominally Democratic Party-voting people to Donald Trump in a general election are merely anecdotal, you're kidding yourself.
The DNC message to voters to fuck off is not a compelling nor winning message for president and down-ticket in a general election that should be a rout, (Snell, Washington Post).
This is the message of the weekend and apparently for Super Tuesday (March 1) being sent priority mail to a volatile and less-than-trusting electorate.
And Hillary, your name ain't the greatest, you need to be doing it cleaner and better than the other guy, (Fournier, The Atlantic).
