Up To Them?

February 6, 2008 9:32 a.m.

We just finished up our morning editorial meeting. And in thinking through our reporting — post-Super Tuesday — the big story to me really seems to be the fact that the conventional nomination process may well not generate a winner. That could certainly end up happening. But proportional allocation of delegates is going to make it difficult for one side or another to put his or her opponent away. And the margin of overall delegate ‘victory’ stands a good chance of being smaller than the number of uncommitted super delegates. That would mean a de facto old-style nomination process. With primary voters unable to settle it, it goes to Democratic officeholders, which is by and large who the super delegates are. So that’s what I’m looking at. Who has super delegate endorsements to roll out this morning? Who do elected Democrats want to run with?
