Vice President Biden is pictured above reacting to the revelation by Hillary Clinton that the Democratic Party's super-delegates are, unlike them, just regular old human beings.
While agreeing that their sole purpose for existing is to heroically protect her from losing the nomination, super-delegates do not, in fact, have super-powers such as: Tax-ray vision, mainstream media invisibility, abortion claws, a magic red tape lasso, debt deflectors, terrorist noise cancelers, tyranny empathizers, and a logic shield made out of laminated race cards.
Clinton then went on to clarify that any Democrat has all of those things, but they are actually perks and side effects, not superpowers.
Hillary: He paws every other female that comes through the Whitehouse. Why not me?
“William Jefferson Clinton! You miserable thing...thing...thing...”
Super Delegates ha! Call them what they REALLY are: Crony Delegates!
Actually the reason they have them is to avoid a deadlocked convention. I think it was after 1968. The idea is to have a large block of people who put the party above any one candidate who can decide a deadlock without going 20-30 ballots. Of course also serving the purpose of tamping down an insurgent candidacy, but mainly to prevent a deadlocked convention which is widely assumed to be harmful to any winning candidate.
