Not so Super delegates




I haven’t had much to add to John and Joe’s terrific primary coverage in the past week or so, but watching uncommitted Superdelegates on TV today got me riled up. This one’s for them:

What exactly do you people need to know to make up your minds at this point?

Seriously. Isn’t enough enough? Pick a candidate and go with it. For a while I totally got the whole “hold out and see what happens” thing. I did. But now – especially after last night – are you really still torn?

It’s just so darn annoying. And marginally insulting to our intelligence. Do you really believe I believe you’re holding out because you want to hear more from Clinton and Obama on the economy? Go to their websites. I’m sure it’s all there.

The following is David Parker, described as “an undeclared superdelegate from North Carolina, was a John Edwards supporter, now, as we said, undecided, hasn’t made up his mind” speaking today on “American Morning”:

PARKER: Looking at the rest of these primaries. Obviously, we’re split 50/50. I mean, it’s going to be important to see what happens at the convention. I’m looking to see who’s the most persuasive on the economy. The numbers in drilling down through the CNN exit polls, the numbers are still not convincing as far as one candidate pitching their issues on the economy better than the other. I think that’s going to make a difference in the fall.

Kudos to John Roberts for trying to get a real answer out of the guy, but Parker wouldn’t budge.

Maybe if we revoke the undecided Superdelegates’ TV privileges – as in stop giving them airtime – they’ll finally settle down and commit.


started on-air as a sports reporter in Hagerstown, Md and was a one-woman-band - shooting, writing, editing, and working the teleprompter with my foot. I moved to NYC in 1999 and joined Pseudo.com - the world's first interactive TV network. Pseudo died Sept 2000, and the following years were filled with a series for Discovery International, a pilot for the History Channel, a pilot for the Travel Channel, and countless auditions. Client feedback research for a big investment bank paid the bills. In 2004, I took a gig with Kuma and made news reports for their reality-based video games. CNN called February 2005, and on Valentine's Day, I started covering the Internet as a beat on national TV. I left cable news in 2007, started this site, wrote a little for Americablog, and threw down the gauntlet. I said I'd leave TV to help fix health care if someone was taking a real stab at it. Someone was. I became the National Communications Director for Health Care for America Now. That was June 2008, and almost 2 years later - on March 25, 2010 - we won health care reform. I am currently at liberty.
