No matter who wins the Democratic nomination, or what happens in the general election, the DNC has to realize the nominating process is a flawed system.
Democratic National Committee members—whose party is tied up in knots over the role of superdelegates as well as Florida and Michigan at this summer’s convention—already are talking about a review of the party’s nominating process once the elections are over in November.
The tight race between New York Sen. Hillary Clinton and Illinois Sen. Barack Obama means the nomination could be determined by superdelegates or the outcome of a fight over the two states’ right to cast delegate votes. That’s proving a double embarrassment for the party, pushing some of its leaders to call for an appraisal of party rules that have been in effect for decades.
Let's see, controversy over the superdelegates, controversy over Florida and Michigan, controversy over caucuses vs. primaries, controversy about starting too early, controversy surrounding which states can and should go first ... yeah, it's probably time to "review" the status quo.
