consultants are sandburs

"What is wrong with a system that allows the person who gets the most votes to win the primary?" Brazile said. "What's wrong with a system that allows people to vote their conscience? What's wrong with a system that allows elected officials, party activists and others to participate? There's nothing wrong with a system like that."

The headline is a mid-item paragraph from a Feb. 24, 2017, Business Insider report on Donna Brazile, covering her experience as acting DNC head after the email publications at Wikileaks showing she'd fed the Clintons "debate" questions, one at least, in advance of the event. The headline is where she opines about it was all okay and for the best anyway.

She phrases that sentiment via a rhetorical "What's wrong . . ." question.

Accepting the challenged, the what's wrong rhetoric, in a word, an easy and all too apparent an answer

SUPERDELEGATES

Yes, SUPERDELEGATES, who wield the big time super-heavy thumb on the scale allowing established inner party operatives, owned hacks in too many cases, slaves to prejudgments in other cases, to aim their machine against the will of the people as and when the big money folks - the Podestas being poster children in addition to Wall Streeters and Hiam Saban's hollywood checkbook cronies - tell them where to aim it. Those to whom inner party stranglehold is an imperative reaching in importance beyond running the clear presidential candidate with the best chance to win an election via resonance with voter wants and needs.

Which in turn reflects the "chosen ones" attitude among the self-satisfied bunch, the 447, who have the fate of the nation in their hands and cannot admit Tom Perez is a status quo stalking horse (despite his commentary of unity) while Keith Ellison is in tune with VOTERS if not inner party functionaries of the status quo and big money influence seekers, also of the status quo.

These 447, if not an absolute congruence, ARE the superdelegates, who want to keep "the big say" with little regard for grassroots reality. They are the Clinton-Podesta folks, in spirit, if not entirely among themselves, each and all, having uncontested superdelegate status.

If in doubt, review THE TELLING VIDEO; one having been linked to before; one atop the sidebar,which  encapsulates THE OVERARCHING GLARING PROBLEM WITH THAT MINORITY PARTY. THE WHY AND WHEREFORE OF PROGRESSIVE INDEPENDENTS EXISTING IN SUCH COMPELLING NUMBERS.

There has to be movement from Republican-lite to echoing and honoring the will of the people.
