Arianna Huffington has declared war on the Superdelegates: “Stop Yelling at Hillary to Stand Down and Start Yelling at the Superdelegates to Stand Up.”
The Democratic leadership — starting with Pelosi, Reid, and Dean — should begin working behind the scenes to get all uncommitted supers to immediately commit. Let Puerto Rico, South Dakota, and Montana have their say, but start bringing the curtain down now.
And let’s not just wait for the party leaders to put pressure on the superdelegates. Let’s start putting pressure ourselves. Below you will find a list of all the uncommitted superdelegates. And this link will lead you to profiles of them. Please call or email the elected officials and track down the DNC members who live in your state and let them know that you want them to stand up and be counted. Now.
Of course, Arianna is asking that the Superdelegates declare for Obama, but there’s no reason for Clinton supporters to not chime in and let their support of Hillary Clinton be known to the Superdelegates as well.
After all, that’s what Democracy is about isn’t it. Making sure that all the voices are heard. Not just the ones with the big megaphones.
Maybe it’s just me, but for all the complaints about the media deciding this election, isn’t Arianna Huffington trying to do just that now… as a member of the media?
