we would then face a long summer of brutal and unnecessary warfare. We would face a summer of growing polarization. And we would face a summer of lost opportunities — lost opportunities to heal the wounds of the primaries, to fill the party’s coffers, to offer unified Democratic ideas for America’s challenges.Give me a break. Do you know we have a superdelegate primary already? Yeah, it's called a convention and it is already scheduled for November. This notion that we, as a party, can't keep our eyes on the big prize as we're going forward in selecting our best face is disheartening. What, we can't multitask? Then we shouldn't preside, should we.
Seriously, though, what "wounds?" I know lately things have been getting punchier, but for the most part, this is an invigorating, high energy contest between two worthy (though maybe not stellra) candidates. And while there are still, a-hem, those out there who swear McCain is a good option if Dem Candidate X wins, I think when the rubber hits the road and the ink the ballot, they'll all vote Dem anyway.
We've spent YEARS decrying New Hampshire and Iowa's ability to determine the outcome of the primary race before a vast majority of Americans can hit the polling place. Now, with things running more like they, frankly, should run, we're screaming "hurry up!" and forgetting about the end goal in all of this.
The only "wounds" out there are the scabs being picked at by the MSM who can't do much besides report the derivative angle - the process story - on each election event. It's not what happened, it's what what-happened means. According to them. And some pundits.
Superdelegate primary? I call shenanigans.
