Hastings: Zip it, Donna Brazile



Alcee_2 U.S. Rep. Alcee Hastings, a Hillary supporter and superdelegate, said he's sick  of hearing DNC member Donna Brazile lament the potential power of superdelegates to tip the nomination one way or another. When Gore's former campaign manager pushed hard to strip Florida of all its delegates "I recall her very vividly saying, "the rules are the rules." Well, the rules arer the rules when it pertains to superdelegates,'' said Hastings,. "I will excercise my judgement accordingly."

But he did offer this scenario: "Assume for the moment (Obama) wins the popular vote and wins the deleghate count. I believe critical mass will come about, and Mrs. Clinton probably will free up her delegates, and vice versa."
