Super Delegates to Determine Democratic Nominee?

My instincts tell me this is a complete disaster, since it will shine light on complicated bylaws and the questionable democratic nature of the delegate selection process instead of on voters. As fascinating as it might be for political junkies, it is not the kind of image Democrats need. We need to figure a way out of this situation in a hurry.

Yes, Yes, Yes... this is all very interesting. But, why not talk about Huckabee? That is what is really interesting about this race. What happens to the Republican party if there is a Missouri repeat in Texas? It could happen, and Huckabee could win in that state.

It's true that Huckabee had (by far) the best night Tuesday. The problem is he has no chance of getting the nomination-and after last night neither does Mitt Romney. John McCain will be the Republican nominee.

John McCain will be the nominee. But, will he have to pick Huckabee as his running mate to get conservatives to go to the polls? Will that cost him the moderate vote because of his age and the fact that Huckabee doesn't believe in evolution? (I believe he doesn't believe in evolution only because he hasn't experienced its full force yet)

Do you think that Clinton and Obama would both consider Bill Richardson as a running mate to sew-up the Hispanic vote?
