Clinton's superdelegate dinner

Without finding the response she needs in the popular vote, Clinton is now turning to the one other place where she can get delegates: the superdelegates.

From the Washington Post article by Anne Kornblut:
New campaign finance laws may mean there's no more free lunch in Washington. But if you're an uncommitted superdelegate, you can get a free(-ish) dinner at Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton's house in Kalorama tonight. Members of the elite -- and increasingly sought-after -- superdelegate universe are gathering at her home around 7 p.m. or 7:30 p.m., according to one Democratic aide. Unaligned Democratic members of the U.S. House and their spouses were invited, the aide said.

I suspect that the meal will be as follows:
- Hors d'oeuvres: Political grand-standing from the original family of the Clinton-Bush dynasty.
- First course: Discussions on what Hillary can do for your pockets and political careers.
- Second course: The crazed eye-brows raised look from Hillary (you know the one), topped with a scripted poorly-delivered speech.
- Third course: Bill Clinton will remind everyone of the favors he did for them while in the Oval Office (but he'll be sure to gloss over that special favor which was done to him in the same location).
- Dessert: Hillary and her PACs and Insurance constituents will serve a Health Care cake they baked together. Hillary: "Not a fan of cake you say? Well, too bad! You'll eat it and you will like it!" (crazed look again)

Yes, I realize that was somewhat acrimonious. Humorous, but still acrimonious. I am just a little peeved that this is the place to which we are now seeing stoop Hillary Clinton stoop to in order to get votes. It seems that, to her, the superdelegates are just votes to be bought after-all. If that's the case, then let's hope that those superdelegates who do go to the Clintons' dinner get a really bad case of indigestion and get wise to the sour taste of Hillary's political game.

Bon Appétit!
