The Clinton camp is really letting the veil slip.
The campaign is already on record trying to seat non-existent delegates from Michigan and Florida. They’ve said they’ll try to win by strong-arming superdelegates to subvert the will of the people. Today, they tell Politico.com that they’re willing to even go after pledged delegates — who, amazingly, are not bound by any DNC rules to actually vote for the candidate to whom the voters pledged them.
‘I swear it is not happening now, but as we get closer to the convention, if it is a stalemate, everybody will be going after everybody’s delegates,’ a senior Clinton official told me Monday afternoon. ‘All the rules will be going out the window.’
Screw the voters. Fuck the rules. Just Win, Baby.
Here’s a pledge question: If Clinton seizes the nomination that way, who out there would vote for McCain?
