Dear Clinton feminists, please stop bashing women who think politicians' policies matter more than their gender.

Heh.  Don't want much, do you?

Sign the petition: Democrats, let the voters decide! #Superdelegates http://pac.petitions.moveon.org/sign/tell-the-democratic-superdel.fb47
I just signed a petition to The Democratic superdelegates: The race for the Democratic Party nomination should be decided by who gets the most votes, and not who has the most support from party insiders. That's why we're calling on all the Democratic superdelegates to pledge to back the will of the voters at the Democratic Party convention in Philadelphia.

From 1963 to 1967, folk singer Oscar Brand hosted 'Let's Sing Out' on Canadian television. Filmed on university campuses across Canada, the show launched the careers of important folk singers -- singers like Gordon Lightfoot and Joni Mitchell, to name just two.

The Democrats’ fight against Bernie is appearing futile. Like a python choking on an elephant, they’ve miscalculated. The Party elites underestimated their opponent, and with each new attack the sn…

Clinton is the candidate of the white and the black elite.
Hillary Clinton earned a key endorsement on Thursday, when the Congressional Black Caucus political action committee backed her over Democratic presidential rival Bernie Sanders.

If you think the Democrats wouldn't shaft their own candidate, here's what happened to McGovern in '72:

"McGovern was probably the most radical candidate to run for president on a major party ticket in the 20th Century. Among other items, he called for an immediate end to the war in Vietnam, a guaranteed annual income for all Americans, and reproductive choice for women. He won the series of primaries and was nominated as the Democratic candidate. Before he even gave his acceptance speech, the Democratic leadership was at work sabotaging his campaign. The rules committee played around with floor activities ensuring that his speech would be delivered at 2:00 in the morning. News organizations were provided with unfavorable information regarding his vice presidential nominee’s health. Party conservatives like Henry “Scoop” Jackson (the first neocon) mounted a campaign within the party and in the press designed to prevent McGovern from winning. After the landslide victory of Richard Nixon in November 1972, the party leadership began implementing rules changes that would forever prevent someone like McGovern from gaining the nomination. As Selfa points out, it’s not that McGovern was a radical; it’s that the Democratic Party does not represent the people (who by 1972 wanted out of Vietnam no matter what), but the corporate class."

Dear Democratic Party elite, if you use superdelegates to give the nomination to Clinton, I will do everything I can to oppose you. FWIW.

Part of the reason I say it is to early is that the regular delegate count is tied.
Putting all that aside, I do agree that the Democrats (and the Republicans) should get rid of all the super-delegates.  They are, as you say, reflective of a different era.
