Super Tuesday came and went, but did little to clarify the Democratic Party's dilemma over its Presidential nomination
Both Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama did well with their respective constituencies. To put it in the simplest way, she won the big states and he won the small states. There are more small states than large ones, but the bigger states have more votes. He won a lot of red (Republican) states, she won the key blue (Democratic) states. What does that mean? Who knows?
Democratic national chairman Howard Dean was on television the other night urging the major candidates to decide on the nomination well before the convention in late August. He said he did not want to see a 'brokered convention'. That statement showed a profound lack of awareness of American history, in which conventions have had a significant role.
