“I am stunned that we have the gall and the chutzpah to substitute our judgment for that of 600,000 voters,” said Ickes.
This is the same Harold Ickes who voted to strip Michigan and Florida of their delegates last year.
And this is the same Harold Ickes who is Hillary Clinton’s primary superdelegate whip, avidly trying to persuade (mostly-)unelected superdelegates to substitute their judgment for that of tens of millions of voters.
Gall and chutzpah, indeed. I do wonder, though, whether Obama’s people should have acceded to the 18-delegate majority that Clinton’s people wanted in Michigan. That the kind of appeasement I could have lived with.
