Superdelegates get campaign cashSo, tell me again how Barack Obama is different from the rest of the politicians? He's been buttering up the super delegates for 3 years! (Quick math check if you don't egt what I'm saying: this means he's been doing it since he was first elected to the U.S. Senate.)
Many of the superdelegates who could well decide the Democratic presidential nominee have already been plied with campaign contributions by Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton, a new study shows.
Obama's political action committee has doled out more than $694,000 to superdelegates since 2005, the study found, and of the 81 who had announced their support for Obama, 34 had received donations totaling $228,000.
Clinton's political action committee has distributed about $195,000 to superdelegates, and only 13 of the 109 who had announced for her have received money, totaling about $95,000.
Obama has a political machine behind him. He is not a Washington outsider. His passionate claim to be "different" other politicians is not merely misleading — it's a lie.
This is the kind of backdoor politics I fear we will have with a President Obama, and it's why I worry so much about his supporters who seem to be blinded by that double-barreled shot: charisma and good speechwriters.
