Not only is the Clinton camp all for losing amongst pledged delegates and winning the nomination due to supers alone, but Hillary isn’t above attempting to sway pledged delegates. How is this possible you ask? Well, while pledged delegates are supposed to live up to their name, they aren’t legally bound to any candidate, and while switching would certainly spell political suicide for any delegate and would be clearly against any once-held notions of what is acceptable. A senior Clinton official stated:
I swear it is not happening now, but as we get closer to the convention, if it is a stalemate, everybody will be going after everybody’s delegates. All the rules will be going out the window.
However, “everybody” may not be an accurate term as a senior Obama official said they didn’t know of any such strategy to sway pledged delegates.
If you are still a supporter of Hillary, I ask you this; if she is willing to turn her back on her party, do you really think she will be responsive to you?
What Hillary is saying here is she doesn’t care about your vote. You voted for Obama and your delegate is pledged to Obama, tough, because Hillary is going to attempt to disenfranchise you and ensure your vote didn’t mean a thing.
