A Win, a Loss, or a What?

The Democratic Party has decided to limit the role of superdelegates, a little bit, and I’m not sure if it’s a win for progressives or not.
On the one hand, Bernie Sanders seems to support the move, so  maybe I should just shut up and stop bitching, but the sting of their saying they would refuse corporate donations and then just cavalierly reversing that when they thought nobody was looking still stings, and, while we would dearly love to have a Democratic party which plays fair, they haven’t given much indication that they’re ready to start moving in that direction.

So, I ‘m skeptical.  They might try to reverse this  again before 2020, or there may be so many candidates running that nobody gets a clear majority on the first ballot, and then wham-o, they come out on the second ballot and give us another corporate fuckweasel just like all the corporate fuckweasels before them, and then expect us to vote for them because they’ve provided a better show of even-handedness than ever before.

On the other hand, no matter how the election is  framed, we (and ultimately they, no matter how much money they have to spend) will have to win it by convincing most people that we are right, and we are winning that war.
