Please note: Before anyone loses their mind and claims I’m being sexist or misogynist, please know the intent behind the cartoon is simply this: Barack will be our nominee and not Hillary.

Dear Michigan and Florida,

I recently heard that Democratic voters in your state won’t get a say in choosing the Democratic Presidential nominee this time around.

According to the AP

Gov. Ted Strickland says he would be willing to surrender his status as a so-called superdelegate to the Democratic convention in future elections if it helps rid the nominating process of caucus meetings.

Both are undemocratic and should be replaced by a “primary election-only system nationwide” that lets Democratic voters decide who they want to represent them.
