The stupid rules of the Democrat nominating process...

Interesting write-up on what is likely to happen at the August Dem Convention;
Despite their name, the Democratic Party has a much less democratic means of selecting their nominee than the Republican Party. They chose years ago to empower party poobahs, via their role as “superdelegates,” to have a large role in selecting their standard bearer. If Clinton can make up her relatively slim deficit in pledged delegates by persuading these superdelegates that she would have a better chance of beating John McCain in November then, per the rules that everyone agreed to in advance, she’ll be the nominee.
