Considering how things have gone thus far in the Democrats process who do you think will win the remaining primaries and caucuses?

'...the superdelegates would have to have a death wish for the Democratic Party if they use their votes to overturn the decision on their own.'---ricardomath

I believe 'The Clintons' are already trying to persuade the super-delegates vote against the wishes of their constituency.

Death-wish or not, some will vote against their own.

Bill Clinton is pulling out all stops.

Hillary Clinton has replaced her campaign manager with an African American who is a woman.

Bill Clinton will be advising his wife to 'promise them anything'.

They can always change their mind...for any reason they can devise.

Political 'life-and-death' is everyday business for these folks.

'The Clintons' have thrown almost every kind of person 'under the bus'.

Be a 'friend' of 'The Clintons' can get you kilt you.
