DNC Unity Commission Agrees On Slate Of Historic Reforms


"The Democratic Party comes one step closer to healing the wounds of the 2016 primary."

In a key flashpoint that went viral in progressive circles, Nomiki Konst went on an impassioned ://]rant against those who would stand in the way of greater budget transparency.

“We spent a billion dollars [and] lost the easiest presidential race you could possibly imagine,” she declared. “How are you supposed to rebuild the party if you have no idea where that money was spent?”

If these reforms go into effect it will just be another nail in the coffin of responsible political leadership in the Democrats' nominating process. In 2020 they might end up with Snoop Dogg or Kim Kardashian as their nominee.

No, it wouldn't. The transition of nominating processes to simple popularity contests is what has given us the dolt Donald Trump as President. Democrats are on the verge of gutting the most positive element of either party's process, the superdelegate.

That's why we're called Democrats. (We believe in democracy.)

So do Republicans. But the nominating process should be about selecting the best candidate for President, and not simply be a popularity contest. As Trump has proven, the most popular candidate can be an insufferable, incompetent ass. The "superdelegates" (one of the most misrepresentative names you can come up with) were the Democrats' last bastion of consideration of political competence. In the future, if these reforms are adopted, there will be no effective bias toward people who have an understanding of governing.

Belle didn't say the US is a democracy, so you're presenting a straw man.
