Nancy Pelosi proves the truth of the old adage “a stopped clock is right twice a day?”
House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi warned Thursday that it wouldn’t be wise for Republicans to broker a deal that crowns another Republican candidate as the party’s presidential nominee if Donald Trump earns the majority of delegates in the upcoming primaries.
“To the Republicans, if they think they are going to upset the verdict of the people in terms of the election, that can really become a very big Pandora’s box,” Pelosi said. “If someone has the majority of the delegates, from the votes of the people, I think you change that to your peril.”
The irony here, of course, is that in the democrat party the “super delegates” are in place specifically to make sure that the elites in the party select the nominee, something they put into place after the 1972 McGovern train wreck. Ms. Pelosi opposes the super delegate thing.
What to make of this statement? Is she right? Is this a trick? Is she trying to discourage the GOP from nominating Trump, the one the dems really fear most, by pretending to think it would be a disaster for the establishment to block the will of the people? Please let me know in the comments below.
