Hill and Bill Inc. continue to trumpet their lead among the so-called superdelegates, who aren’t expected to subject themselves to the nitty-gritty of being elected through either caucuses or primaries. They got their place at the table by being part of the Washington, D.C., establishment. How democratic is that?
F. Scott Fitzgerald had it right in “The Great Gatsby” when he wrote, “They were careless people, Tom and Daisy – they smashed up people and creatures and then retreated back into their money or their vast carelessness or whatever it was that kept them together, and let other people clean up the mess they had made.” The same could be said of Bill and Hillary.
I would take the sentiments of the citizens of my precinct over the votes of the Clintons and the D.C. insiders any day!
