WASHINGTON (AP) -- Hillary Clinton has commitments from the number of delegates needed to become the Democratic Party's presumptive nominee for president, and will be first woman to top the ticket of a major U.S. political party. An Associated Press count of pledged delegates won in primaries and caucuses and a survey of party insiders known as superdelegates shows Clinton with the overall support of the required 2,383 delegates. Now the presumptive nominee, she will formally accept her party's nomination in July at the Democratic National Convention in Philadelphia.


Yup, we all knew this day was coming and AP has just dropped the bombshell and they of course are counting Super Delegates. Ah, what a shame the elections are being that even before the race started Clinton was already awarded with what, 500 Super Delegates?

Either way, Bernie ain't giving up and just recently tweeted she does not have the nomination yet but the MSM have spoken!

NBC has declared Hillary Clinton the presumptive nominee after wins over the weekend delivered pledged and new superdelegates.
Not all of the superdelegates are committed to Hillary or Bernie. There are about 150 that are undecided and MSNBC has just reported new superdelegates have committed to Clinton..

She wasn't awarded them. Like someone doled them out. These are people who have committed to supporting her.

Which is funny because I thought they voted at the convention? That, and their votes really only count during an emergency per day? And speaking of the PR primary, word is Clintons team committed much fraud.

Sure they vote then but these people came out early and strong in support of Clinton. 30 more joined her today. They're not flipping over to Bernie.

Umm, yes she was awarded them before the race even started and that's because she was wooing them about a year before the race started. Before the first primary vote was cast and caucus was, well caucused she already had hundreds of delegates. Meanwhile Bernie had to earn his the old fashioned way.

What a joke, she is being nominated mainly by people who have not been elected by "the people" to any office. Delegates and super-delegates are selected by the DNC, but include sitting senators and house members. So yes, they are doled out according to rules of the DNC's twisted game. Delegates are created based on the amount of "support" for each candiate from "within" the DNC. Laughing my ass off now. The people who are supporting her need to committed, preferably to an asylum lol. This is going to come around and bite the DNC and her in the ass and all the sitting delegates in the house and congress, well, I hope they have jobs waiting for them next election that don't involve politics. People won't forget this sham of a rigged election ;-)

Obviously they're not flipping to Bernie because all the Super Delegates are pro establishment bought and paid for politicians, just like Clinton. They can't have Bernie in office trying to regulate Wall Street and tax the wealthy.

Super Delegates shouldn't even be a factor and should only be needed in an extreme case, like if Clinton magically got indicted. Tomorrow the last 5 states have yet to vote but because of these fraudulent Supers Clinton nabs the nomination.

So much for democracy. Either way, Bernie isn't giving up and will be going to the convention. Not that I expect much to change but good for him.

Super delegates are almost always former office holders, it goes with the territory of electing them in the first place.

Key word is "former." Today's letter is C, for Criminal and Clinton and C#. Key words and phrases for today are "detached" as in detached from reality, "conflict of interest" as in those people are really stupid to believe their corruption isn't showing and we can't forget dissonance, as in cognitive dissonance in this dystopian reality. OMGFFS

Desperation by the Hillary camp to have this "announced" on the eve of the remaining primaries. She is using every last trick to not be beaten by Bernie in California tomorrow.

Go vote anyway fellow citizens. Go Bernie!

How about we use the letter "L" Liar and L is off the scale and works much better


Anyways back on topic, how do these people keep the title of delegate when they are done with their term in the political arena. If they were voted out do they still keep their precious titles?

It doesn't matter if they are out of office, they are (s)elected by the DNC. There isn't any, "we the people" involvement lol, except maybe the token delegates from the house and congress and even that bunch has to be split along expected candidate "support" lines. If Bernie has 40% and Hillary has 60% support ***according the the DNC, NOT THE VOTERS*** then the delegates are stacked in Hillary's favor. Waalaah! Rigged much lol.
