Democratic Train Wreck

Less than 4 months away from the Democratic Convention, and depending on the outcome of
the next few primaries, neither candidate may reach the nomination #'s.

If this happens, what do ya'll think would be the best resolution to the standoff?
Or,do you think the superdelegates will pick the nominee?

Neither side want the vote of the people to count, and the super delegates will pick, following the tradition of electoral college making the choice, or the supreme court.

That the remaining Democratic candidates would rather damage both of their long term chances in the quest for individual glory rather than sacrifice and cooperate to ensure victory is further proof that once again neither major party deserves the job of leading our nation.

Possible solution is for the Democratic victor to choose the vanquished one for HIS running mate :P

Republicans could live with an Obama presidency more easily than the alternative.

He is more pragmatic about compromise in politics.

I see that the rules committee has graciously allowed the Florida and Michigan delegates to
participate in the convention, but has only allowed a 50% vote.

If they think this will settle the matter, they will see differently at the convention.
