Obama, McCain Win Vermont

By Justin Gardner | Related entries in Barack, Hillary, Vermont

McCain wins it big. Barack looks to win it by more than 20%. That could mean a 5 delegate pickup for the Obama camp tonight.

Fun fact: if Ohio and Texas stay close, his delegate lead in Vermont may wipe out an advantage Hillary picks up in Ohio or Texas.

Stay tuned!

    I hear it could be worse. She could win the Ohio popular vote, and still lose the delegate vote in Ohio. Same thing could happen in Texas. If either of these things were to happen, or your Vermont scenario – it might perversely be good news for Clinton, because it would put to rest once and for all that pledged delegates are any more representative of “the will of the people” than superdelegates. In fact, she could call on the Superdelegates to correct this electoral injustice. You cannot say that pledged delegates are “democratic” if it does not match the popular vote. At least I won’t have to argue about that anymore. Pledged delegates – superdelegates – no difference – neither has any more value than the other. It becomes a delegate free for all until the convention. Advantage Clinton?
