Completely upset with President Bush’s arrogance and bungling during the past eight years, many people feel a dramatic change is necessary. However, when considering switching allegiance to the Democratic Party, people become upset by the Democratic National Committee and the leading candidates’ suicide attempt by prolonging the nomination process and disenfranchising the Democrats in Michigan and Florida for supposedly breaking the archaic Democratic Party rules.
It matters none that every state in the union has an inherent right to set its own rules and laws; instead of creating good will by allowing primary votes to count, the “godlike” DNC would prefer to control the delegate apportionment process by creating the good ol’ boys club of superdelegates to decide the nomination of a particular candidate.
With the ineptitude of the Nevada Democratic Party (for the chaos at the caucuses), the Clark County Democratic Party (for the chaos at the county convention) and the Democratic Congress (for the failure to end the Iraq war), it looks as if we are trying our hardest to drive voters to the Republican Party or keep them at home in November.
As a lifelong Democrat and an unabashed and unapologetic liberal, I’m afraid we’ll see “mission accomplished” all over again in a different context. Sen. John McCain is getting more palatable to this voter with each passing day of the Democratic Party’s internecine warfare.
