Can someone tell me what this means?

The first reply had a Sanders avatar, so I thought it might be something slimy.

5. Hmm.....

I'm probably just overly suspicious these days. I need to relax just a little.

8. I agree, ignore it. They are the ones with "conspiracy theories", and mathematical deficiences

7. Don't know. If it is the process of trying to "flip" pledged delegates they didn't win", which

Devine got caught discussing, that would be the same thing as stealing votes from those people who voted for Hillary.



If they won by doing that, which is extremely unlikely, they would have disenfranchised millions of people who voted for Hillary in the primaries, and because of that they will give a landslide victory to the republican nominee.

"For those of you who continue to confuse superdelegates with pledged delegates and don't want to believe I heard what I heard, here's the tweet of a Time Magazine reporter also on the call, who also reports the same thing.


Update 2:

Oh, you skeptics. Here's Alex Seitz-Wald, at MSNBC, asking the specific question. Here, I'll even transcribe it for you.

SEITZ-WALD: Tad, you mentioned earlier in the call that something about pledged delegates not necessarily having to vote for whom they're pledged to. Could you just describe that process a little bit more for those of us who aren't as versed as you are in the process. And are you going to make an active campaign of people who are pledged to switch their votes.

DEVINE: Well no, let me start with the second part of that question. We're not going to try to, you know, convince anyone to do anything, at the moment. The reason I brought that up is just to illustrate the fact that you know, in 1980 is a very good example of this.

If you are the frontrunner in the nominating process, even if you have a significant delegate lead, that delegate lead with pledged delegates can become very soft if you don't continue to win. That's the point I'm trying to illustrate.

We don't have a plan at the moment to start calling all the Clinton delegates once they get selected and try to sway them individually to vote for Bernie Sanders. But we do believe that if we can succeed in this last half of the process as much as Hillary did or even more so, that there will be enormous pressure on people who are delegates at this convention to do the right and responsible thing."

9. Right.

I can't even tell if that's what they're talking about though. I should know better than to even try.

12. I think they might just be having some fun. This is something we used to do

many years ago on DU. It was a real kick. I think it was to keep Agent Mike at bay and in the dark.
Anybody else remember doing this?

I'm not real good at these interweb chatterrooms.

But he was good at his job! I'm series! (remember that?)

18. It means they think Hillary is "Obama's Third Term"

Which wouldn't be a bad thing at all. Imagine how far we'd have been without the brick wall masquerading as a Republican Caucus he had to put up with.

21. Yep--and an "establishment" set-up!

Poor Bernie and all his supporters are trying to do things honestly, but the DNC Establishment has rigged the election--Hillary will, in effect, be Pres. Obama's 3rd term. She will likely sneak him in to the oval office through an open window each morning.

22. Why the open window thing?

It'd be easier to just put him up in the Lincoln Bedroom.
