Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
We could very easily arrive at a situation in which almost a third of the elected delegates have been decertified.  Which means that the role of the 800 superdelegates (DNC members, governors, Congress, Senate, etc) will be magnified, because a close election in which the winner of Iowa took early states only to lose later on, leaving them without a majority from delegates allocated by voters.  Sounds like gibberish.  Here's a chart detailing how 2004 DNC delegates were allocated.

At that point the DNC needs to take the calendar away from the states and institute some sort of standard procedure.

Can the last politician to go out the revolving door please turn the lights off?
