Superdelegates the new pregnant or hanging chads to come?

Washington, D.C. - Even with Obama's stunting success in winning more state delegates than Clinton, Hillary still holds a commanding lead over him in the number of "uncommitted" supperdelegates (elected officials) she controls going into the democratic convention. Slowly the Democratic Party has begun to leak out the bad news, sending up test balloons, that Obama may lose the presidential nomination to Clinton because of the so-called superdelegates all to test the waters.

"It's an attempt to see if they call pull off a Florida 2000 style political takeover, only using superdelegates instead of the pregnant or hanging chads," said a political scientist from the Cassandra Institute of Political Foresight.

Democratic Party insiders openly fear a resulting backlash of disenfranchised democratic voters if it appears the democratic process is just a shame and Clinton wins the party nomination by virtue of the number superdelegates she controls at the end of the contest, despite the democratic involvement of the people and the investments of their hearts in a fair and equal democratic system.

"When the shit hits the fan, the democratic electric that has been revitalized by Obama will stay home in protest come Election Day," some Democratic Party members predict.

However, it is the Independents and Nonpartisans that the Democrats fear the most.

"So what if we lose a hundred thousand Obama supporters sitting on their hands come Election Day if Clinton wins the nomination," said a Democratic Party member. "What's got me losing sleep at night is all those Independents and Nonpartisans. They just might not sit on their hands come Election Day like registered Democrats to protest. They just might crossover to the Republicans and cast a protest ballot for McCain."

The funny story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
