After Pelosis food stamp comment, and how they 'create' jobs.

Pelosi wants what Sanders wants.

They all do.

What I Don't get is why the Democrats are playing coy.

Just my 2 cents, they still have a fine line to walk
with some of the Dem party that are very well
aligned with the big Wall Street "cartel", and
the insurance companies who need to get out
in the clear from Obamacare, which was Pelosi's
pet carnivore.

Maybe when they've ransacked the Treasury
entirely, then they will let her go. ( openly full socialist )

Why are so many americans loyal to those that out sourced our jobs and crashed our economy?

That's the million dollar question. However, I think we're seeing more people disgusted with the status quo this election than we've ever seen.

Could this be a signal that HRC's email problems are turning into serious legal trouble? 

Interesting point to ponder.
Pelosi may have insider knowledge of what's coming up in Hillary's future, so she isn't afraid of what she knows is a dead duck.
Why not position herself to be a Bernie man ahead of the news? Or at least make herself look like she wasn't in the tank for Hillary too.

While Pelosi's statement of her position on Super Delegates is quite clear, one must wonder what political situations or reasons caused her to bring it up now.

Maybe attempting damage control from angry Sander supporters, with an HRC win?

She brought it up in 2008, and then too HRC was playing the super delegate card to win. It could be Pelosi is honestly against the Super Delegate situation, or she has a grudge against HRC.

Interesting and thought provoking, but it sure opens a lot to be questioned!

I know that this is the first time I can remember paying any attention to a primary. I have never considered donating before Sen Sanders, the American people should donate to our politicians, not corporate lobbyists.

With Trump and Sanders, this election is surely not boring!

Kind of like how the Occupy Wall Street protest didn't do much. I get your point. Something should be done to get their attention that affects their pocket book or embarrasses them. That's the only thing that makes them change their ways.

If I recall, someone wrote a post about Nabisco closing their plant in the U.S. and moving it to Mexico. Someone said the people of the U.S. should boycott Nabisco products. In my opinion, that would be more affective than protesting in front of Nabisco headquarters. Getting everyone on board is another story.

It's kind of difficult to do the same thing with our representatives in Washington. As long as we have voters who continue to vote these career politicians into office every year, the people will never have the upper hand. Our representatives have been bought out, and we no longer have a voice in government. We're really kind of screwed and at the mercy of self-serving representatives.

I always thought the media should be donating a fixed amount of time to every candidate and in return getting a tax deduction.

The same goes for supplying travel for candidates, food and lodging.

Public donations will also have tax deductions but nobody would be allowed to exceed a set fixed amount. All candidate donations would be capped at a set amount for every candidate. This would create a level playing field.

These businesses would be playing an important part in elections and in return will be reimbursed with a tax deduction. There wouldn't be a need for super pacs.

I don't see how anyone can say this with a straight face.
Delegates needed for nomination:
2383 Total number of delegates:
4765 Number of super delegates:
717 Uncommitted super delegates:
235 Do the math.

Perhaps you should look at the math already there

Delegates - 672
Super Delegates - 458
Total - 1130

Delegates - 477
Super Delegates - 22
Total - 499

Remaining - 3136
If Hillary gets any more super delegates and/or half the remaining delegates , Guess What ? And due to the Super Delegates committing to Clinton as soon as she announced her run...that basically made her a "shoe in"

2016 Primary Delegate Count

According to WIKI.

They are entirely different animals.

At least in name, superdelegates are not involved in the Republican Party nomination process. There are delegates to the Republican National Convention that are seated automatically, but they are limited to three per state, consisting of the state chairsperson and two district-level committee members. Republican Party superdelegates are obliged to vote for their state's popular vote winner under the rules of the party branch to which they belong.[1]

The Lefts system is totally rigged as per the ops criticism's.

If nobody has the magic number they are released and allowed to vote as they wish. And since they are party leaders they do what is best for the party.

You're right, he's under the influence of union lobbyists that spend billions on national elections and have paid his bills the last 40 yrs.

The scary thing is I actually would rather see Hillary get elected. And I don't even like Hillary Clinton. I just think the idea of Trump as president gives me a cold shiver somewhere in my anus and Sanders is even worse. I think they're deliberately tearing down Clinton. The obvious reason is that they want to give it to Sanders.

Those Ideas would make a great start on the much needed campaign finance reform. Funny for years Dems said we need campaign finance reform, but seem willing to ignore that so HRC can pork out on wall street cash.
