Super Duper Dems, Resolutions

The Super Duper Dem Delegate issue keeps coming up. Yesterday, Georgia Congressman John Lewis is switched from Hillary to Obama. His district voted 80% for Obama. Should Massachusetts Senators Kennedy and Kerry switch from Obama to Hillary since Massachusetts went for Hillary? If CD 18 votes for Obama, should Sheila Jackson Lee switch from Hilllary to Obama? If Cong. Charlie Gonzalez’s district votes for Hillary, should he switch from Obama to Hillary?

One thing is for sure, unless someone beats me to the punch, Commentary is going to draft a resolution that I will offer at my precinct convention calling for the end to the Super Duper Dem Delegate system. I don’t think I’ll have a problem getting it passed. If I’m able to get the resolution to the State Dem convention, will the Super Duper Dem Delegate Caucus fight me on this?

Of course, I’m also going to offer up my Dome Destruction Resolution. I think some of my labor buddies might fight me on this one though. They want to make the Dome into a hotel so they can organize the hotel workers. I don’t know about calling it The Eighth Wonderful Hotel of the World.

Hey, we finally got us a winner in New Mexico. New Mexico goes to Hillary.

Never before has Commentary seen this much coverage of the Lone Star State Latino vote in an election. This is what you call unprecedented. Believe me, the Latino voter is paying attention to all this, errr attention. Here in the H-Town area, most Latino elected leaders like Senator Gallegos, County Commissioner Garcia, former Council Member Carol Alvarado, HISD Trustee Rodriguez, and HCCS Trustee Olmos are in Hillary’s corner. Rep Ana Hernandez is with Obama. Just because Rep. Hernandez is the only Latina leader out there for Obama, don’t count out her ability. After all, she did put an arse whupping on Commentary a couple of years ago.

Speaking of, there is a blurb on page 2 of today’s Chron about a 46 year old H-Town businessman who says he might be JFK’s “love child.” Yeah, sure! Of course, if he comes out for Obama, then maybe……

Speaking of, here’s a good question. In the Lone Star State in the Dem Prez sweepstakes, do public endorsements by leaders matter. Are the voters ahead of the leaders on this one? Can they be swayed? I do think that a significant segment of the Dem Primary vote can change their mind. I also think that there are a few elected out there that can still inspire and influence some voters in the Dem Prez sweepstakes.
