Greenwald on the superdelegate coronation

Following up on the last post, see Greewald's take here. Note this was a real-life conspiracy between major media and anonymous superdelegates that didn't even have the courage to name themselves. He notes that Clinton would likely have won the pledged delegate count anyway, but by preempting all the voters today it was par for an entire corrupt Party process from the start. He said:

"This is the perfect symbolic ending to the Democratic Party primary: The nomination is consecrated by a media organization, on a day when nobody voted, based on secret discussions with anonymous establishment insiders and donors whose identities the media organization — incredibly — conceals. The decisive edifice of superdelegates is itself anti-democratic and inherently corrupt: designed to prevent actual voters from making choices that the party establishment dislikes. But for a party run by insiders and funded by corporate interests, it’s only fitting that its nomination process ends with such an ignominious, awkward, and undemocratic sputter."
