Matthew Yglesias, the leftist blogger, cries to the heavens: “I have to say that I’m getting really tired of this. All the superdelegates should just say who they’re voting for and bring this to the end.” The New York Times is, I hear, going to call on them to do the same immediately.
Yes. Sure. Because politicians with the most valuable votes in America are just going to choose up sides and not spend three months being courted and feted and promised. They are going to forswear having their feet kissed, their backs massaged, their views requested, their wants fulfilled, their needs anticipated. They are going to throw their vote away rather than milk it for all it’s worth.
It’s time for people like Yglesias and other Democrats to grow up and get this straight. The point here is: A thousand or so people are going to decide this primary. It behooves those people to have this go on as long as possible, because that is how they are going to get the most goodies. Maybe this is what Hillary truly understands.
