Why wasn't the delgate count adjusted?


By Golf11 - Posted on 11 March 2008

OK, apologies for being obtuse, right up front, but I'm confused about something and maybe someone here can help me understand this. If Michgan and Florida were tossed out and their delegates as it stands now won't be seated, it would seem to me that any reasonable person would have discounted (subtracted) those delegates from the total delegates need to win the nomination? I mean if you say something isn't going to count some adjustment should be made...

Have I lost it or am I just bad at math...i have problems with the math at the end of each post which explains why I double post a lot! (just kidding!).

good point!
That is a very good point Golf.  Common sense would dictate that the delegate count needed to win the nomination should have been change.  Of course, the super delegates are there at the ready to save the day.  But now that is getting a bit more uncomfortable than they would care for, since the world is watching their wheeling and dealing.
I heard somewhere recently that the delegate count had been adjusted to account for Florida and Michigan's absence.

This is what I was thinking but I haven't verified.

yeah, I just dont get it, was it an oversight by the DNC or what? I tell you for the most part I'm glad I'm a republican, at the very least the party is more organized. I mean it's like you play baseball and you say there are 3 bases, 1st, 3rd and home but you leave second base on the field and then penalize the players for not tagging it as they go to third base. I'm sorry, probably a bad analogy, but it just doesn't make sense to me and I'm scratching my head and wondering if a math whiz can explain it or if someone else has a theory.

As far as I know, I have no reason to believe Hillary Clinton is a monster; there's no basis for that, I take her on the basis of what she says. And, you know, there isn't any reason to doubt that.

It appears the number has been adjusted. If Michigan/Florida are included the winning delegate count is 2207.

Golf, just a side note, totally off subject.  From now on, when you say DOA, then DOA it is!! :)

Gotcha, did you notice that I didn't even respond to his bait in that thread? :)

I certainly did notice, and respectfully submit to you my 100 lines on why I will not yadda yadda yadda......LOL 

OK.....Barb....you are making me doubt my own sanity, here a post, gone a post, there a post.....lol

Anyway, as I said before being told that the post I was replying to didn't exist, I  hadn't heard that.  ( I imagine you were verifying your figures??  Please say yes....;-)

The librarian had mis-shelved her post. Apologies for any inconvenience. I get so lost without the Dewey Decimal System.

Yeah, I see some of my posts are gone, too. Guess I was just getting too darned silly. Sorry about that--it is 1:29 a.m., and I probably have no business being here in this frivolous a mood...I promise I will try to contain myself...I shall resist temptation!

I could be wrong, but I don't think any of your posts are gone. Suzi was referring to the fact that I edited one of my posts.

Oh, never mind, I just didn't look far enough down the thread. I really ought to be sleeping at 1:43 a.m. :-)

Goodnight, everyone!
