Tell that long tongue liar… sooner or later

Five cent tour for Patsaks:

If the Democratic leadership continues to hide behind sorry excuses for neutrality and fairness, card-carrying Democrats across America may become disillusioned with the Party. They know Barack Obama is a man that can win the presidential election. They know that he comes to the American people with more than a message of hope; he is a man of action. Democrats need their Party leaders to come out and lead the victory march- carrying the Illinois prophet on their shoulders.

Obama wins hearts and minds

The popularity contest has been decided; Barack Obama has won the heart of the American liberal. And he will make headway with disappointed conversatives and the religious right as well. No one can deny the upper hand of the silver tongued prophet from Illinois. His message of hope has gone as far to even touch the hearts and inspire the imagination of Europeans and other observers.

It has been a long time since the American people were this excited about a Party nominee, presidential election or about a presidential candidate. Americans and the world want an American president that brings empathy, courage, will and justice to the presidential office. Barack Obama appears to have all that and much more.

At the same time, the Democratic Party is concerned that Obama could be a loose canon. Obama wants to put an end to the same old politics and political games of the Dee Cee power brokers (left and right). However, Obama has not payed his Party dues in a manner of speaking- not to mention the behind the scene deals made between Party leaders with Hillary Clinton. The Democratic leadership find themselves in a Catch 22.

Catch 22

Will the Democratic leadership expose the underhanded Party politics that really drives the Party machine? Or will they embrace change as the American people chant to will.i.am’s video, “Yes, We can”?

If the Democratic Party could quickly embrace change without hesitation and get Hillary chanting too, Obama will be the next president and, more importantly, the first black American president in US history. Ironically, there is no mention of Hillary or Obama on the homepage of the website for the Democratic Party. Go figure!

At the same time, if Party leaders join the song, they would sacrifice some of their hard-won authority and tenure on a long ago compromised institution that is really about power, position and dues- not about Freedom, justice and equality. The dark nature of a Party, left or right, have long been problematical in the American system.

Can Obama slay dragons too?

Superdelegates

The Party “superdelegates” represent party officials and Democratic officeholders from across the country; their vote ultimately decides who shall be the Democratic presidential nominee. Regardless of Obama’s popularity and chances to sweep up the popular vote in the Presidential election, it is the superdelegates whose vote counts most at the Democratic National Convention (DNC).

Approximately 800 superdelegates will vote alongside the 3,000+ pledged delegates who are chosen in the various state primaries and caucuses. The candidate that gets a majority of all delegates (superdelegates and pledged delegates combined) will be the Democratic nominee for president.

Obama’s campaign people are confident that they will keep their lead among the pledged delegates, but they know that winning over the superdelegates is a challenge greater than winning over the American people for the presidential election. Everyone knows that the Party leadership had worked it out long ago for Hillary.

On the Democratic Party’s blog, a disgruntled Democrat writes:”I have been a devout Democrat for 46 years(voting). The fouled up mess that the DNC has made of this primary is unpardonable. Allowing superdelagates to be bought like cattle, manipulating primary forms to keep control of who does what, and backing a candidate who doesn’t have a clue! But, perhaps that is what the DNC planned all along.”

Fear and Loathing in the Party

At the moment, Party leaders and superdelegates seem afraid to make private or public commitments to either Obama or Clinton. They realize the potential harm to the Party that can happen if they reveal premeditated, Party-dictated choices. But they and Party leaders also know and fear the greater harm that can come if Obama calls them out, one by one, to give the American people an answer.

As Obama enjoys his victories among the pledged delegates, the Democratic leadership goes through a dark night. Al Gore, Nobel Prize winner and a powerful figure in the Party, is unusually silent on the matter. Some believe that Gore could turn the tide of the superdelegates, but observers speculate that neither Clinton nor Obama has offered Gore something substantial enough to make it worthwhile for him to do so.

If the Democratic leadership continues to hide behind sorry excuses for neutrality and fairness, card-carrying Democrats across America may become disillusioned with the Party. They know Obama is a man that can win the presidential election. Democrats need their Party leaders to come out and lead the victory march.

Tell that long tongue liar… the backbiter, you can run on for a long time… and the longer the Democratic leadership runs, the less they can avoid that “sooner or later”.

    Constitutional crises: The Hillary machine may have stole New York, New Hampshire and are setting up Ohio for a Clinton win.

    Soviet-style politics.

    Barack Obama’s primary-night results were strikingly under recorded in several congressional districts around the city – in some cases leaving him with zero votes when, in fact, he had pulled in hundreds, the Board of Elections said today
    Unofficial primary results gave Obama no votes in nearly 80 districts, including Harlem’s 94th and other historically black areas – but many of those initial tallies proved to be wildly off the mark, the Board of Elections confirmed.
    Truth is, in some districts getting a recount, the senator from Illinois is even close to defeating Hillary Clinton.
    Initial results in the 94th District, for example, showed a 141-0 sweep for the New York senator, but Board of Elections spokeswoman Valerie Vazquez said today that the ongoing recount had changed the tally to 261-136.
