Politics and Sausage: It is better not to see either being made
I don't know if I'm the only one noticing this or if anyone else has noticed, but things seem to be getting ugly on the democrat side of the campaign.
In the AP article found here:
Hillary says that caucus states are "undemocratic and cater only to party activists." Before that, though, she, and the other democrat candidates, agreed with the DNC's decision to exclude delegates from Michigan and Florida, simply because of when they held their primaries. They even all agreed not to campaign in Florida at all. How democratic is that? They don't want to let democrats in Michigan and Florida help choose their party's nominee for president, and they don't even want to let people in Florida hear what they have to say.
Democrats even have "superdelegates," who are elected officials and party leaders, who can vote any way they want, regardless of what the people may want. That doesn't sound very democratic to me, either.
There's also the Obama campaign supporters' office in Houston, TX, in which they have a Cuban flag with a picture of Che Guevara's face on it, which is the flag of the Castro-led regime in Cuba.
I'm not sure about the state of the democrats in the US. But it seems like the old adage is true:
Politics is like sausage: it is better not to see them being made.
