The Donkies are Divided

With my recent focus on the narrowing race for the GOP nomination, I’ve been neglecting the heat on the other side of the political spectrum. Can you believe how split the Democratic race for nomination is? I must say, this comes to me as a bit of a surprise, for I didn’t think it would stay so close for so long.

As of tonight, Hillary leads Obama by a mere 27 delegates. That’s less than Edwards had when he dropped out (too harsh?). This means the Democrats and moderate supporters are being extremely selective of what they want in a candidate. Since the Dems assign delegates proportionally, this current tie is truly representative of what the people want.

Inevitably, one of these candidates must prevail. My question is, will the massive support of the close, Democratic loser fully commit their vote to the victor? This may seem like an obvious “yes” at first, but think about it. If the Dems are being as picky as social conservatives, it’s possible that party dissention will deter a small portion of votes for the Democratic nominee. So, do you think this is plausible, and if so, will deterred votes be significant?
